It’s always the right-wingers who bang on and on the most about being Christian who display the least Christlike behavior in their day-to-day life. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is a detestable woman who has spread cruel conspiracy theories about school shootings in the past and even called for the execution of prominent Democrats. She wants to gut the social safety net in service to the interests of capital, completely apathetic to the widespread suffering and death such a gutting would cause. And yet she still proudly wears the mantle of Christianity, exploiting it in the hopes of giving a moral sheen to her heinous politics.
Earlier today, Greene displayed some behavior that decidedly flew in the face of Jesus’s commandment “love thy neighbor as thyself” when she got into a shouting match with Democratic representatives after the House passed the Women’s Health Protection Act, which will protect access to abortion.
The incident was caught on camera and shows a visibly angry Greene yelling that the Democrats “should all be ashamed.” As she turns to leave, Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) told Greene that she is the one who should be ashamed.
Greene responds to getting called out for her lack of civility by yelling that “killing a baby up to birth is a lack of civility” before pivoting to ranting about the usual Republican talking points about the border and the Constitution. Dingell easily holds her own, displaying poise and intellect to match Greene’s unhinged nature and ignorance.
Dingell chastised Greene and told her to “practice the basic thing you’re taught in church: respect your neighbor.
“CHURCH!?” exploded Greene. “Are you kidding me? Try being a Christian and supporting life.”
The two went back and forth a bit more before Greene slunk off.
