By the standards of Congresswoman Lauren Boebert’s (R-CO) typical social media posts, this one looked fairly innocuous.
It wasn’t a partisan attack on opposition Democrats or some rant about gun rights, a stolen election, or any of the other deranged right-wing talking points that she usually indulges in.
No, this one seemed — in contrast to her usual tweets — to be perfectly appropriate for a Sunday morning: a request to her followers to reveal their favorite verse from the Bible, a wholesome change from her usual social media antics.
What’s your favorite Bible verse?

Unfortunately for Rep. Boebert, her public tweet garnered responses from people who are decidedly not impressed with the Colorado legislator’s overall performance as one of Congress’s most notorious wanna-be seditionists and gun-rights advocates.
Here’s a sample of some of the most biting replies to her query of religious curiosity, most of which either implied or outright insisted that the congresswoman’s own behavior left a lot to be desired from the perspective of Christ’s teachings.
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father.

"Thou shalt have no other gods before Me" is one of the Ten Commandments found in the Hebrew Bible at Exodus 20:2 and Deuteronomy 5:6. It is the central tenet of the Abrahamic religions and prohibits the religion's followers from worshipping gods other than the Lord.

The Bible says that homosexuality is an abomination (Leviticus 18:22), but it also says that eating shrimp is an abomination (Leviticus 11:9-12), so why do Christians eat shrimp, but oppose homosexuality?

Matthew 25: 31-46
Probably the most famous of His teachings. You are more a follower than she is. Christianity isn't words, it is actions.

Here’s one for you Qbert: Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

Give onto Cesar what is Cesar's, and onto God what is God's.
Conclusion: Separation of church and state. By the very same guy!!!

There were plenty of other appropriate Bible quotes thrown back in Congresswoman Boebert’s face after her ill-considered public request for feedback.
However, the Colorado extremist representative continues to serve in Congress and attract media attention with her ridiculous antics, second only to perhaps her spiritual sister, Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
Hopefully, when Congress’ panel investigating the January 6th insurrection finally convenes, they will take a close look at Rep, Boebert’s actions in the days leading up to the congressional invasion to determine what sorts of interactions she had with the right-wing terrorist groups like the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers and whether she actively assisted them in their plans to violently prevent the certification of the election of Joe Biden as president.
Let’s find out if there is a complicity that went beyond just her words and then hold her appropriately accountable.
