Congress GOP Religion WTF?!

Lauren Boebert Says Her Personality Is Similar To Jesus Christ’s

What comes to mind when you hear the name of Lauren Boebert, the Republican congresswoman from the state of Colorado? Bigoted? Narrow-minded? Angry? Obtuse? Probably those and many others, none of them positive.

But according to Bobert herself, the first thing that should pop into your head is an image of Jesus.

Yes, she actually said that.

Speaking with Mike Huckabee on Newsmax, Boebert began by explaining why she ran for Congress in the first place:

“I believe as a Christian, that frustration we feel on the inside of us sometimes is really just God’s motivation to send us to where we need to be part of the solution.”

That led Huckabee to note that Boebert isn’t “afraid to speak openly about your faith and how it defines you.” He then added:

“You’re not timid and you’re not afraid to let people know that you are a Christian believer and that that’s what gives you your core values. Do you find that people sometimes are wanting you to say just tone it down a little bit, Congresswoman? Just tone it down. Do you hear that?”

The congresswoman responded:

“You know, I think people would love if I would tone it down. But, you know, we had our Lord Jesus certainly didn’t tone it down for anyone. We had the Apostles who carried this message of the Gospel and even the leaders in their days, they said, you know, it’s fine, you can pray but just don’t do it in the name of Jesus.”

Not content with having compared herself to Jesus, Boebert continued:

“And now here we are in another cycle of cancel culture but this is nothing new. Cancel culture has been around since the beginning of time. Cain canceled Abel. We had Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego that were thrown into the fiery furnace. King Nebuchadnezzar wanted to cancel them but there stood another in the midst of them and He was the son of God.

“And then they tried to cancel Jesus but you can’t cancel God!”

Holy shit! Is this woman serious?! If so, it’s quite clear she hasn’t actually read the New Testament or she would have immediately noted that Jesus preached one thing above all others. It’s known as the Golden Rule:

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. (Matthew 7:12)

Do unto others as you would have done unto you. That’s the most fundamental teaching of Jesus and is supposed to be a major tenet for all Christians.

And yet, Boebert constantly attacks others, belittles those she disagrees with, and makes herself the center of attention. None of those are what Jesus urged his followers to do.

Lauren Bobert is a hypocrite. And here’s what Jesus said about hypocrites:

“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.” (Matthew 23:27-28)

Sounds just like a certain member of Congress from Colorado, doesn’t it?
