U.S. Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has come under fire for saying she is “tired of all this separation of church and state junk that’s not in the Constitution.” Boebert made her comments, which have gone viral, at Cornerstone Christian Center in Basalt, Colorado, on Sunday, June 26.
“The church is supposed to direct the government,” said Boebert, who represents Colorado’s Third Congressional District. “The government is not supposed to direct the church. That is not how our founding fathers intended it, and 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 what they say it does.”
