Brain-Dead Boebert is a born-again Christian and a strident advocate of guns; she and her husband own a restaurant—Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado, where staff are encouraged to carry firearms
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.)…says she is “tired” of the U.S. separation of church and state, a long-standing concept stemming from a “stinking letter” penned by one of the Founding Fathers. Speaking at a religious service Sunday in Colorado, she told worshipers: “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.” — Washington Post 6-28-2022
I wonder if Brain-Dead Boebert knows that there isn’t one church or religious sect in the United States. She must be talking about her church. Her profile lists her as a Christian but doesn’t identify which sect or denomination.
“Estimations show there are more than 200 Christian denominations in the U.S. and a staggering 45,000 globally, according to the Center for the Study of Global Christianity.”
“Followers of Jesus span the globe. But the global body of more than 2 billion Christians is separated into thousands of denominations. Pentecostal, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Baptist, Apostolic, Methodist — the list goes on. … A cursory look shows that differences in belief, power grabs and corruption all had a part to play.” — Live Science
So, it is apparent that Brain-Dead Boebert is talking about the Christian sect or denomination she belongs to and she thinks her sect should grab power and control the country.
It’s also apparent that Brain-Dead Boebert isn’t referring to the other religions in the US. She’s talking about the sect she belongs to.
That means there are more than 200 other Christian denominations in the U.S. that do not count. The other 30% belong to other religions or are atheists.
If Brain-Dead Boebert’s Christian sect is lumped under Evangelical Christians, that sect make up about 25%, or 1 in 4 Christians, in the U.S. — Pew Research
“In the United States, evangelicalism is a movement among Protestant Christians who believe in the necessity of being born again, emphasize the importance of evangelism, and affirm traditional Protestant teachings on the authority as well as the historicity of the Bible. Comprising nearly a quarter of the US population, evangelicals are a diverse group drawn from a variety of denominational backgrounds, including Baptist, Mennonite, Methodist, Holiness, Pentecostal, Reformed and nondenominational churches”
I wonder what Evangelical denomination Brain-Dead Boebert belongs to that she thinks should rule the United States.
