Newly elected Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted a positive and inspirational scripture from his personal Twitter account Sunday morning, and it didn’t take long for God-hating atheists to go crazy with intolerant responses.
Abbott, a Christian who is confined to a wheelchair and annihilated anti-life Democrat Wendy Davis in the 2014 gubernatorial election, quoted Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things in him who strengthens me,” going on to write, “What God intends for you goes far beyond anything you can imagine.
I can do all things in him who strengthens me. -Phil 4:13 What God intends for you goes far beyond anything you can imagine.

As you might imagine in this day and age, government-worshiping God-haters were quick to respond in intolerant outrage. BLOB, who has a Democrat Party logo tattooed to his twitter profile picture, hatefully showed a picture of the tragic and ongoing Texas floods, while folding the NRA and the Republican Party into the mix:
Other progressive leftist haters seemed to be struggling with the English language with their responses:

Others were in disbelief and disappointment that a governor would encourage people to be all that God wants them to be. Perhaps he might still be sour over Wendy Davis’s historically huge defeat.
One dunderhead even questioned Abbott’s Christianity for supporting the death sentence for convicted murderers, even throwing in a meme of the previous governor, Rick Perry to “prove” his point, while others insinuated that Abbott should convert to communism to prove his Christianity, as they used scripture to twist the mandate to help those in need from being the responsibility of the individual, to that of big government:

Not everyone had their fangs out for Abbott on Sunday morning, however.

What a sad day it is when a governor of a state within the United States of America, a country tolerant of other religions, but founded by mostly Christian men and built on Christian principles, is ridiculed by citizens for quoting the Holy Bible, something the Founding Fathers regularly did with pride and without rebuke.
