Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) claimed that Jesus Christ would be "maligned as a radical" in Congress, and accused traditional believers of using religious freedom to “justify bigotry" at a House Oversight Hearing on Thursday.

Ocasio-Cortez said, “Sometimes, especially in this body, I feel as though if Christ himself walked through these doors and said what he said thousands of years ago ― that we should love our neighbor and our enemy, that we should welcome the stranger, fight for the least of us, that it is easier for a rich man - for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into a kingdom of heaven ― he would be maligned as a radical and rejected from these doors.”

The Democratic-led hearing was titled "The Administration’s Religious Liberty Assault on LGBT Rights."

"My faith commands me to treat Mr. Minton as holy because he is sacred, because his life is sacred, because you are not to be denied anything that I am entitled to," AOC later added.

Transgender man Evan Minton was reportedly a witness at the hearing. Minton is suing a Catholic hospital for not participating in a hysterectomy procedure that was part of "gender-affirming" care. 

Fox News reports, Minton was diagnosed with gender dysphoria, a medical condition where a person experiences deep discomfort with the gender assigned them at birth, according to the American Psychiatric Association.
