She also appears to refer to the advancement of anti-abortion bills this week in Alabama and Missouri, saying Republicans only use the Bible as support when it furthers their agendas.

Meanwhile, Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is introducing the Senate version of the Loan Shark Prevention Act, wrote an op-ed for CNN, also invoking a Bible reference.

“If you read the tenets of the major religions throughout history, whether it is Christianity, Judaism or Islam, what you will find is a universal moral condemnation to usury,” Sanders wrote. “In ‘The Divine Comedy,’ Dante reserved a special place in the Seventh Circle of Hell for people who charged usurious interest rates.”
