Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was interviewed by far-right Catholic activist Michael Voris of Church Militant, and guess who is behind Christian organizations that are working to resettle undocumented immigrants and refugees? You guessed it: SATAN. Via Right Wing Watch:
“I thought we had a separation of church and state,” Greene sighed after Voris complained about Catholic Relief Services and other Christian organizations receiving federal funds to assist in resettlement efforts.
So we can assume Madge is deeply opposed to the Christian anti-abortion groups who get government funding to badger pregnant women to give birth? Ha ha, of course not! Republican extremists aren't consistent. They're just random meme machines.
“What it is, is Satan’s controlling the church,” Greene declared. “The church is not doing its job, and it’s not adhering to the teachings of Christ, and it’s not adhering to what the word of God says we’re supposed to do and how we’re supposed to live.”
“We are supposed to love one another, but their definition of what love one another means, means destroying our laws,” she continued. “It means completely perverting what our Constitution says. It means taking unreal advantage of the American taxpayer. And it means pushing a globalist policy on the American people and forcing America to become something that we are not supposed to be.”
I'd love to hear Madge explain which globalist policy the Catholic Church is pushing.
“The bishops of Catholic relief charities and services, they should be all in support of that,” Greene declared. “If the bishops were reading the Bible and truly preaching the word of God to their flock and not covering up child sex abuse and pedophilia, loving one another would have the true meaning and not the perversion and the twisted lie that they’re making it to be.”
Yes, she recently said she left the Catholic Church over the child sex abuse and pedophilia. Finally, a rational point!
So, um, Madge: Why are you still a Republican?
Editor's note (Frances Langum): I lived in Alabama for 14 years and was exposed there to a branch of Southern Baptist theocracy that said you'd rather have your daughter bring home a Jewish fiance than a Catholic one. It had something to do with Jews being God's chosen who could be converted to Christianity to bring about the second coming (or burn in Hell for a firey eternity), while the Catholic Church is outlined in the Book of Revelation as the beast with seven heads and ten horns and you best not mess with that devil. I am not making that up.
So during a very bad week in Perjury Taylor Greene's career she, like her entire party, falls back on immigration border terror theater, but also on a commentary that will specifically speak to a certain contingency in her district: those right-wing Baptists who have been taught since Wee Ones Sunday School that the Papacy is the Devil. The End.
