First Transgender Nominee For Governor Thinks ‘Radicalized Christians’ Are A Problem

Scott Morefield | Reporter

Christine Hallquist, the country’s first major party transgender candidate as the newly minted Democratic nominee for the governorship of Vermont, once tweeted an insinuation that “radicalized Christians” are a problem that Americans currently “tolerate.”

“And we worry about sharia law!!” Hallquist tweeted in June 2017 along with a link to an article from “LGBTQ Nation” about a girl disqualified from a soccer team because she looked like a boy. “Radicalized Christians are a part of the American landscape, and we tolerate it.”

Hallquist’s tweets about Christians didn’t stop there. In January 2018, the Vermont candidate for governor tweeted a link to a Christian satire site jokingly claiming that a Christian evangelist said President Trump “was merely sharing the gospel” with Stormy Daniels along with the caption (and an obvious punctuation error) “Some of these Christian evangelist’s are just downright crazy.”

Several other tweets seemed to show a disdain for conservative Christians, including an assertion that people who allow children to be harassed for being gay probably “call themselves Christians.”

Hallquist won Tuesday’s Democratic primary for the Vermont governor’s race and is set to challenge incumbent GOP Gov. Phil Scott in November.
