Pope Francis’ comment about Donald Trump’s lack of Christianity has caused some controversy among voters.

Marco Rubio’s recent Twitter video suggesting religions could come under attack for anyone who runs for public office, following Amy Coney Barrett's nomination to the Supreme Court, had voters suggesting President Trump lacked religious faith.

“Today the assault may be on Catholicism. But tomorrow, no religion will be safe from the same attacks. And then the message will be clear, if you want to serve in public office, especially on the highest court in the land, only those willing to hide or deny their faith need apply,” Rubio tweeted.

However, voters who opposed Trump began recirculating the Pope’s 2016 comment in which he said the president wasn’t a Christian.

“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,” Francis previously told a reporter.

Voters began recirculating the article along with suggesting it was another reason why people in the US shouldn’t vote for Trump--hinting he was the one who was actually attacking religion.

“After years of listening to Republicans and Fox News and conservatives and Trump himself attack and undermine the religious authority of Pope Francis and the Vatican, it’s quite a clumsy pivot to claim anyone who opposes them is anti-Catholic,” one person wrote.

Another person added, “Pope Francis is correct. Trump is not a Christian nor has he ever been a Christian. He’s a con-man and sadly there are a lot of real and good Christian’s that have fallen for his lies. It’s time for the religious right to wake up. Trump is the least Christ-like Christian ever.”

Meanwhile, one person suggested that Pope Francis’ comment was a valid description of Trump. 

“Pope Francis is what real Christians look and sound like. Donald Trump is not Christian or religious or a good person. Can we at least all agree on that? If you like him, it’s because you’ve embraced a cruel form of racist authoritarianism,” the individual wrote.

Although some voters appear to agree with the Pope’s previous comment, at the time, he insisted that he was not trying to influence how Catholics would vote in the election.

“I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that,” Francis said. “We must see if he said things in that way and in this I give the benefit of the doubt.”
