Kinzinger Rails Against ‘Christian Taliban’
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) responded to comments made by Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) in which she called for the end of the separation of church and state, likening her remarks to the Taliban.
“There is no difference between this and the Taliban,” Kinzinger tweeted. “We must [oppose] the Christian Taliban. I say this as a Christian.”
Kinzinger’s remark comes after Boebert said she is “tired” of the separation of church and state.
“I’m tired of this separation of church and state junk — that’s not in the Constitution. It was in a stinking letter, and it means nothing like they say it does,” Boebert said during a speech at the Cornerstone Christian Center in Basalt, CO.
“The reason we had so many overreaching regulations is because the church complied,” Boebert added. “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.”
