“Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) made an unforced error Wednesday night when she sent out a ‘thoughts and prayers’ tweet to the victims of the mass shootings in Lewiston, Maine.
Boebert’s post was short, reading, ‘Sending prayers to Lewistown, Maine tonight. Know that the entire country is praying for you.’”
Evangelicals’ default response to any natural disaster, terrorist atrocity or mass killing is to offer “thoughts and prayers”. After expressing this trite sentiment, they focus their attention to their everyday religious duties of demonizing the LGBT community, ostracizing immigrants and fluffing their messiah, Donald Trump.
The thoughts and prayers of the average evangelical are as efficacious as farts and belches, and they only serve to darken the mood of a community stricken with a senseless tragedy.
But the thoughts and prayers of Boebert, who owned a restaurant called “Shooters Grill” that fetishized guns and featured gun toting servers, are especially repugnant.
The dimwit couldn’t even spell correctly the name of the town beset with tragedy, it’s Lewiston not Lewistown.
I doubt the Almighty reads Twitter, but if He did, I’m sure he’s thinking: Bitch, please. Just shut the fuck up!
