an atheist group’s request that he remove a Bible verse from his official Facebook and Twitter accounts, his spokeswoman told TheBlaze.continue at The Blaze
“Governor Walker will not remove the post on his social media,” Walker spokeswoman press secretary Laurel Patrick said in an email. “The verse was part of a devotional he read that morning, which inspired him, and he chose to share it.”
Patrick said Walker’s social media accounts are frequently used “to engage with Wisconsinites on matters of public policy” as well as to give constituents “a sense of who he is.”
She said the scripture reference he posted on March 16 was simply “a reflection of his thoughts for the day.”
Walker’s response came after the Freedom From Religion Foundation wrote him a letter this week asking that he delete the message, which read simply, “Philippians 4:13,” from his official Facebook and Twitter accounts.
The popular New Testament Bible verse reads, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
