I’m here all weekend, try the veal…

I apologize if this has been posted here before, last night was the first time I had seen this particular clip and I didn’t realize it was from Saturday when she also made her remark about hoping President Biden’s days “would be few”. As spike points out in the comments I should not have been surprised by this violent and ignorant strain of Christianity, it’s been around for a long time.
I could not find this isolated clip on YouTube but Yahoo News has text of her remark along with another bible lesson:
At a Christian event run by the Charis Christian Center, Boebert said that “little Twitter trolls” often challenge her pro-gun rights stance by asking if Jesus needed an AR-15.
“They like to say: ‘Oh, Jesus didn’t need an AR-15. How many AR-15s do you think Jesus woulda had?'” she said. “Well, he didn’t have enough to keep his government from killing him.”
Some in the crowd responded with laughter.
In another pro-gun rights statement, Boebert referenced the Bible’s first recorded murder — in which Cain, the son of Adam and Eve, killed his brother Abel.
“Cancel culture has been here since the very beginning. Cain canceled Abel. And guess what, it wasn’t with a big, scary AR-15, it was with a rock,” she said. “So I don’t think it’s a firearm issue, I think it’s a heart, a sin issue.”
I'm an atheist and even I think this is perverse. She's twisting an important part of Christian belief to serve her own ends.

Jesus: ummm what the actual fck are you talking about?
Boebert: See, the communists even got to Jesus.
Jesus: Hey Dad, can't we just send an asteroid or something?

I can’t even…
Jesus commanded Peter, “Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?”

Is there no debasement of Christianity that these “Christians” will not applaud?
