Proving yet again that many Republicans in Congress either haven’t read the U.S. Constitution or read it and didn’t comprehend a word it says, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is urging Christians to help her “remove” President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris because the church should always have authority over the government.
Speaking over the weekend at a conference hosted by the right-wing Truth & Liberty Coalition at Charis Bible College in Woodland Park, Colorado, Right Wing Watch reports, Boebert began her rant by demanding that Biden and Harris be impeached:
“We cannot take another 18 months, we cannot take another three years of this poor, failed leadership. We are sons and daughters of revolutionaries. They went to battle for a lot less. They took a stand for a lot less. And it’s time we get involved. I need you involved in every local level. I need you speaking up. I need the world to hear your voice. You know the word of God, and you know that there is power in your words, that the world was framed by words. You have the Lord God Almighty on your side. I need you to use your voice and speak.”
And then Boebert declared that the government must do whatever the church wants:
From beyond the grave, Thomas Jefferson responds to Lauren Boebert, having written in 1802:
“I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.”
The name “God,” it should be noted, is not found anywhere in the Constitution. Not even once. That’s how seriously the Founding Fathers took the idea that religion and government should be separated.
As for Boebert’s absurd call for Biden and Harris to be impeached, that’s just sour grapes because her real Lord and Savior, Donald Trump, was impeached twice, the only man in U.S. history to carry that dubious distinction.
If Lauren Boebert wants to live in a theocracy, there are planes leaving most airports that will take her to Iran or Saudi Arabia. And almost no one back here in the U.S. will miss her.
