Yes, these are the same people who pride themselves on Religion and Religious freedom and all things Religion. Heck, they even have a branch of their party proudly brandishing the Christian name. You’ve probably heard of them, they call themselves, “Christian Conservatives.”

But it should also come as no surprise to learn this bit of news; one of the members of this Religious minded party is bragging and even trying to raise money off the fact that he boycotted the Pope’s congress speech.

The Republican congressman is Paul Gosar from Arizona and he represents the 4th District in the northwestern portion of the state. His email said that when the “Pope chooses to act and talk like a leftist politician, then he can expect to be treated like one.”

Gosar boycotted the event in protest of the pontiff’s expected focus on climate change in his speech.

Gosar is seeking a fourth term in office and sent the email to potential donors on Wednesday. He seeks contributions to help him raise an additional $25,000 by the end of the day.

Gosar was the only member of Congress who boycotted last week’s address by the pontiff for political reasons. He is a Roman Catholic.


I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!
