Religion in Politics

Lauren Boebert: The Democrats ‘fail to recognize’ Jesus

During an appearance on the right-wing Christian Victory Channel, Colorado GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert declared that Christians “above all else” need to get more involved in politics.

“I’m tired of these politicians who view government as God,” she said. “Government is not God — government is instituted to protect, to secure your God-given right … There is a higher, more majestic being that is above government.”

According to Boebert, the Democratic Party “fails to recognize” said majestic being.

But as the Friendly Atheist’s Hemant Mehta points out, that’s simply not true, since there’s roughly 78 percent of Democrats in Congress who are “some flavor of Christian.”
