Rep. Adam Kinzinger called on people to oppose Rep. Lauren Boebert by referring to her as the “Christian Taliban.”
Kinzinger was upset about Boebert’s comments about how “the church is supposed to direct the government.”
“There is no difference between this and the Taliban. We must oppose the Christian Taliban. I say this as a Christian,” Kinzinger, who is reportedly nondenominational Protestant, said in a tweet.

The sleazy Never-Trumper also shared an article from The Hill about the congresswoman’s speech at Cornerstone Christian Center in Basalt, Colorado.
“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. “The church is supposed to direct the government.”
Rep. Boebert won the Republican primary this week and will be seeking another term. She defeated her challenger by a massive 30 points.
For someone who claims to be Christian, Kinzinger has taken a lot of digs at the faith recently.
It’s been said that a faith that makes losing a sin will make cheating a sacrament. That leadership crisis has spread from DC into our daily lives and even our churches. When leaders refuse to stand up for truth and reject toxic division, we begin to replace God with idols. pic.twitter.com/wK6DqdySGB

Earlier this month, Kinzinger said that “there are a number of churches that have basically become, you know, from a house of worship of Christ and of God to a house of worship of Donald Trump.”
“We need pastors, we need priests. We need leaders who are going to stand up in front of the pulpit and say, we welcome Democrats in this audience as well, and we’re not going to sit here and worship Donald Trump because he’s a very flawed man. In fact, all men are flawed,” Kinzinger continued.
