Not only has Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) made a name for herself as one of the most anti-LGBTQ members of Congress, she has also garnered a reputation for being one of the meanest.

But she has an explanation: she’s just trying to be as mean as Jesus was.

“I believe as a Christian, that frustration we feel on the inside of us sometimes is really just God’s motivation to send us to where we need to be part of the solution,” Boebert said on a recent appearance on Newsmax where she talked with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), another Republican with a reputation for callousness.

Huckabee responded that she is “not afraid to speak openly about your faith and how it defines you.” he said she’s “not timid” but then asked what she thinks about unnamed people who “sometimes are wanting you to say just tone it down a little bit.”

“You know, I think people would love if I would tone it down,” Boebert replied. “But, you know, we had our Lord Jesus certainly didn’t tone it down for anyone. We had the Apostles who carried this message of the Gospel and even the leaders in their days, they said, you know, it’s fine, you can pray but just don’t do it in the name of Jesus.”

“And now here we are in another cycle of cancel culture, but this is nothing new,” she remarked. “Cancel culture has been around since the beginning of time. Cain canceled Abel. We had Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego that were thrown into the fiery furnace. King Nebuchadnezzar wanted to cancel them but there stood another in the midst of them and He was the son of God.”

“And then they tried to cancel Jesus but you can’t cancel God!”
