Trump's acting attorney general: Judges should be Christian with a "biblical view of justice"

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, Trump's replacement for fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions, thinks that if you're not Christian, you shouldn't be a federal judge.
Judges should be 'people of faith' and need to have a “biblical view of justice,' and Whitaker would like to see a person's 'world view,' because if they have a secular world view, he'd be 'very concerned with how they judge.'
Whitaker revealed his ignorance with these remarks during a 2014 conservative forum while vying for the Republican US Senate nomination in Iowa.
The takeaway from this: According to the acting Attorney General of the United States, if you're open-minded, don't be a judge.
