QOTD -- The Bible Tells Her So


"On the Sunday after the Supreme Court reversed a decades-old ruling that legalized abortions in the U.S., Republican congresswoman Lauren Boebert spoke to a crowd at a church in Colorado. Among other things, Boebert complained that faith communities have long had to deal with laws in the U.S. that they don't agree with.

"'The church is supposed to direct the government," she said. "The government is not supposed to direct the church. That is not how our founding fathers intended it. And I am tired of this separation of church and state junk. It's not in the Constitution.'"

"Of course, the Constitution does explicitly ban the establishment of a specific religion. It's in the First Amendment." --  Ashley Lopez, NPR, in "The Christian Right is winning in court while losing in public opinion."  The party of these dangerous dimbulbs needs to lose at the ballot box, too, lest we become a theocratic banana republic.
