Here‚Äôs Rep. Adam Kinzinger trying once again to reclaim the throne of dumbest congressman on Twitter from Rep. Eric Swalwell. Kinzinger‚Äôs been whining a lot, and hearing Rep. Lauren Boebert say that ‚Äúthe church is supposed to direct the government‚ÄĚ has him claiming that her view of religion and the state is no different than that Taliban.
There is no difference between this and the Taliban. We must opposed the Christian Taliban. I say this as a Christian

The Hill reports:
In a Sunday speech at the Cornerstone Christian Center in Basalt, Colo., ahead of her primary election on Tuesday, Boebert argued that ‚Äúthe government is not supposed to direct the church,‚ÄĚ saying that dividing religion from the system of government was not what the Founding Fathers intended.
‚ÄúI‚Äôm tired of this separation of church and state junk ‚ÄĒ that‚Äôs not in the Constitution. It was in a stinking letter and it means nothing like they say it does,‚ÄĚ Boebert said, earning a round of applause from the audience.
Agree with her or not, it‚Äôs true that liberals have no idea what ‚Äúseparation of church and state‚ÄĚ means, going by all of the moaning and wailing when the Supreme Court ruled that Maine‚Äôs tuition assistance program must cover religious schools. Even Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote that the separation of church and state was crumbling.
But yeah, the Taliban.

I can think of a few differences, like the fact that she's not wearing a burqa and being hit in the face with acid for going to school https://t.co/JArpHbsi9N

Setting aside the obvious stupidity of the comment, does this mean that Kinzinger‚Äď"as a Christian"‚Äď believes his theological beliefs are morally on par with Islamic fundamentalism? What American Christian denomination wants to execute infidels? https://t.co/J5MrNAtJzA

There's no such thing as the Christian Taliban. I say this as an atheist. https://t.co/B69ARgE3KK

You're about as much a Christian as you are a man and a patriot, so none of the above. https://t.co/87sBQEATJv

I've run out of ways to express how embarrassing you are as an elected leader.

You don't say this as a Christian, you say this as a colossal dumbass. https://t.co/gF225hZ9RH

She's not right but she's obviously not the Taliban either https://t.co/BFYuGGtUvp

Lol, the Taliban probably wouldn't be represented by someone named Lauren https://t.co/3a1zZJMz08

Disagree with Boebert all you want, but saying her remarks show no difference from the Taliban? Be serious for a minute.
