Tell Lauren BoebertRepent and resign for weaponizing our faith

Posted: Feb. 8, 2023

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is known for weaponizing religion to seize power and restrict the rights of anyone different than her -- but she just took the heretical twisting of faith to an entirely new level by appearing to actually pray for Joe Biden's death.

During a recent sermon at Storehouse Dallas church, the election-denying, QAnon-touting, Christian-nationalist politician told the congregation: "We pray for our presidents. You know, [the Bible] says, 'Let his days be few and another take his office.'"

These unacceptable words are especially chilling following January 6, the assault on Paul Pelosi, and other acts of political violence. A misguided supporter could easily take them as a divine blessing to attack the president.

Boebert claims she meant impeachment, but that's an obvious ruse. Psalm 109 doesn't just say "May his days be few" -- it goes on to say, as Boebert surely knows, "May his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow!"

Republican politicians have quoted the same Psalm about Democrats before -- and it has always led to headlines like "GOP Senator Asks Christians to Pray for Obama's Speedy Death." Boebert must have known that her words would be received the same way this time.

Jesus includes everyone and teaches love and peace, not death and political violence. Let's call for Boebert's resignation, and show that a nationwide Christian movement is sick and tired of right-wing politicians abusing prayer for power.
