Lauren Boebert told congregation she's "tired of this separation of church and state junk"

The congresswoman’s comments were made Sunday to a crowd at the Cornerstone Christian Center in Basalt,

Just days after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the constitutional right to abortion, Colorado’s Western Slope Rep. Lauren Boebert said churches should direct the government, not the other way around.

Boebert’s comments, made Sunday to a crowd at the Cornerstone Christian Center in Basalt, take aim directly at the separation of church and state.

The church is supposed to direct the government. The government is not supposed to direct the church,” Boebert told the crowd, which applauded. “I’m tired of this separation of church and state junk.”

“It was not in the Constitution, it was in a stinking letter and it means nothing like what they say it does,” she continued.

The first-term, far-right congresswoman’s comments are disturbing, several political experts said and were likely inspired by recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings. Richard Collins, a retired constitutional law professor at the University of Colorado Boulder, called the statements unsurprising.

4. Did she address the abortions she has had in her past?

Huh? And I am not even mentioning the prostitution. What a fucking hypocrite. She stands out as one of the biggest hypocrites but that field has been so full it is harder to find a GQP rep who ISN'T a lying, greedy hypocrite with secrets in their closet.

20. Some of the stories about her were proven false

I totally despise the woman, but there's no need to repeat stuff that's been disproven. In particular, it seems the escort story didn't survive examination.

We have plenty of people who want to be the Christian Ayatollah of America.

8. Which church? Catholic? Presbyterian, Pentecostal?

Baptist? Church of Latter Day Saints? Jehovah’s Witness? Anglican, Episcopal ?

The Pentecostal church that I grew up in says women cannot wear pants. Does boobert think that church gets to make the decisions?

9. "The church is supposed to direct the government."

Which church? Hers? Why does her church get to tell everyone else what to do? Catholics and Protestants don't even have the same versions of the bible!

What is she going to do with churches that don't agree with hers? Imprison their members? Exile them? Torture them until they covert to her church? Declare war on them?

There were some very bloody wars in Europe over just these questions. Separation of church and state was meant to ensure these wars do not happen in the US.

10. This is what ignorance looks like.

She was miseducated, dropped out of high school, and more likely than not never reads a book. If she wasn’t such a terrible person I might feel a bit sorry for her.

I can’t imagine what it is like to know so little and have no ability to understand that there is so much you don’t know.

26. She doesn't say it completely,

She wants her religion to base law on, not other religions. Is it time then for religious institutions to be taxed then? What about the separation of church and state? Hope this idiot loses her primary tomorrow, then gets indicted and locked up.
