Following the House successfully voting to repeal Obamacare and replace it with the American Health Care Act, angry Democrats and liberals took to Twitter to mock Republicans with "things Jesus never said."

In fact, on Friday and Saturday the hashtag "#ThingsJesusNeverSaid" was one of the highest trending topics on Twitter worldwide. At first, the hashtag was used to mock Republicans for allegedly removing the pre-existing conditions provision in Obamacare.

But the hashtag quickly devolved into broader criticisms of President Donald Trump and the Republican Party as a whole.

Users criticized the GOP for being against refugees and immigration, for wanting to replace Obamacare with a market-based solution, for advocating tax reform, for wanting to build a wall on the southern U.S.-Mexico border, among other current American political issues.

One user wrote: "#ThingsJesusNeverSaid 'You have a pre-existing condition, I can't cure you.'"

Another added: "'Build that wall' #ThingsJesusNeverSaid."

Even a Catholic priest added to the rhetoric: "'Blessed are those whose mercy extends only to those who are like them.' #ThingsJesusNeverSaid."

But the hashtag works both ways, liberals quickly learned.

Conservatives, Republicans and libertarians on Twitter were quick to hit back with some statements of their own, mostly focusing on the fact that Democrats and liberals alike generally advocate for abortion, which many contend is murder.

While others added other issues to the mix:

It must be noted that despite the liberal outrage, the AHCA is not yet law. In fact, the Senate has not even voted on the bill yet, and it's expected they will pass a different version of the law, complicating the law making process.
