Lauren Boebert Goes Full Theocracy, "Tired of Separation of Church and State"

Lauren Boebert has gone completely mask-off. Last Sunday, the Colorado Congresswoman appeared before a congregation at the Cornerstone Christian Center in Basalt where she proclaimed that “The church is supposed to direct the government. The government is not supposed to direct the church. That is not how our founding fathers intended it… I’m tired of this separation of church and state junk.” In response, the crowd erupted in applause. This is full-fledged Christian nationalism, but more importantly, these claims are patently false. The Founding Fathers believed that there could be no freedom of religion unless religion was separated from the state. Boebert’s statement evinces total disregard for her oath to the Constitution, it’s quite literally the equivalent of saying “I’m tired of this due process junk, let’s just throw people in jail without a trial.”
