Clint Eastwood's American Sniper had another jaw-dropping weekend, reaching an impressive $200 million at the domestic box office. Despite the film's colossal success, liberals like former DNC chairman Howard Dean and director Michael Moore just won't let American Sniper go. Over the weekend, Moore invoked Jesus in a slew of incendiary tweets aimed at dishonoring American soldiers and the Iraq war.

One tweet stated, "Tomorrow's Sunday School (1) What Would Jesus Do? Oh, I know what he'd do—hide on top of a roof and shoot people in the back!"

He followed that tweet with: "Sunday School: (2) But What Would Jesus Do if he could be a sniper & save soldiers lives by shooting 'savages' in the back?"

Fox News' Todd Starnes sounded off on Monday against Moore. "There was a time when Hollywood and Democrats stood in solidarity with our fighting men and women," Starnes said. "Folks like Jimmy Stewart and Bob Hope and John Wayne—American heroes. Those days are long gone and our sweet land of liberty has been soiled by the stinking stench of Michael Moore and Howard Dean and their liberal minions."
