Christine Hallquist, the Democratic nominee for Governor of Vermont and the first transgender nominee for statewide office in the country, hates that we “tolerate” Christianity in the United States.
In a tweet made in June 2017, Hallquist retweeted an article about a girls’ soccer team being disqualified because they weren’t sure if an 8-year-old player was actually a girl.
Hallquist added the caption: “And we worry about sharia law! Radicalized Christians are a part of the American landscape, and we tolerate it.”

In a tweet from January 2018, Hallquist also shared an article from conservative-leaning satire site Babylon Bee. Apparently unaware that the story was meant to be a joke, Hallquist added the caption, “Some of these Christian evangelists are just downwrite crazy.”
In April 2017, Hallquist also tweeted, “I am guessing that this so-called Christian hypocrites would’ve not allowed Mary, the mother of Jesus, because she wore a Hijab.”
And earlier that month, Hallquist responded to someone’s comment about transgender bathrooms with, “So, you say you are a Christian? You say you are pro-life. I see you’re a hateful, bigoted hypocrite.”
Hallquist has been widely praised on the left for making history… but Hallquist’s record of anti-Christian intolerance will likely go unnoticed by the liberal left.
