Boebert Wins GOP Primary in Colorado, Blasts Separation of Church & State

HeadlineJun 29, 2022

In Colorado, far-right Republican Congressmember Lauren Boebert, who was also endorsed by Trump, fended off a challenge from a more moderate Republican. On Sunday, she spoke at a church in Colorado, where she criticized the separation of church and state.

Rep. Lauren Boebert: “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. 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.”
