Rep. Lauren Boebert wants government to take orders from the church

U.S. House Representative Lauren Boebert of Colorado, speaking at a conference held September 13 by the Truth and Liberty Coalition, cast Democrats as the  enemy and called on God to remove ungodly leaders in Washington, D.C. and instead “install righteous men and women of God” who understand that government should be taking orders from the church, and not the other way around. 

“It’s time the church speaks up. The church has relinquished too much authority to government. We should not be taking orders from the government; the government needs to be looking at the church and saying, ‘How do we do this effectively?”

Boebert told the audience that President Biden treats terrorists better unvaccinated people, and that this prompted her to draw up articles of impeachment against Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

  1. This email from Rep Lamborn-

    Will his comical legislation then require that trump’s leaked audio of ‘grabbing women by the …’ is forbidden?

    trump IS their idol/messiah & by the GQP’s own inactions, they confirm that he can do no wrong. How could they then censor his very own comments from children’s education?

    Also, child(ren) is ‘a young person or below the age of majority’ (18 for most everything except alcohol or other legal drugs).

    The Stop Sexualization of Children Act of 2022 prohibits the use of federal funds to develop, implement, facilitate, or fund any sexually-oriented program, event, or literature for children under the age of 10. The bill prohibits federal funds from being used to host or promote events where adults dance salaciously or strip for children.

    -“Sexuality-oriented” is defined as any depiction, description, or simulation of sexual activity, any lewd or lascivious depiction or description of human genitals, or any topic involving sexual orientation, gender identity, gender dysphoria, or related subjects.

  2. The church … not sure if there is some specific church or whether church goes back, per Boebert’s extensive education in religious studies, to the Greek root ekklesia which means “a gathering, assembly” and is the basis for our word “congregation”.

    A congregation would be a group of people- who are they & what qualifications do they have? Should we call them mullahs?

    Do they speak ‘for god’? How so? How do we know their thoughts are pure of heart? If they condemn others for their sexual orientation or other beliefs, then they are not professing the teachings of Jesus Christ (aside from His views of the Pharisees & other prosperity types).

    If the ‘church’ casts Beobert to the street, so to speak, will she still embrace ‘the church’?

    What if the church is of ‘latter day saints’? Or Satanists? Or Catholics? Historically, these three forms of faith were derided by the Southern Baptists as heretics, cults, etc.

    If I declare that God spoke to me and told me that Boebert is a fraud, (She did.. and she is) then how could I, or anyone else who professes a relationship with God, ever concede authority to the frauds who promote false testimony?

  3. Just like Palin, she is nothing more than tokenism. She only got the GOP vote because white males fantasized about banging her.
