During an interview that seemed out of the ‘twilight zone,’ Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene declared that “Satan is controlling churches” that are helping undocumented immigrants and refugees in the United States, claiming that they are not adhering to the teachings of Christ because their love for migrants is “destroying our laws.”
Greene’s comments, which were flagged by Right Wing Watch, came while speaking with a far-right Catholic activist Michael Voris of “Church Militant.”
“I thought we had a separation of church and state,” Greene said after Voris complained about Catholic Relief Services and other Christian organizations assisting migrants and refugees.
“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.”
While conceding that “we are supposed to love one another,” Greene argued that “their definition of what love one another means, means destroying our laws and completely perverting what our Constitution says.”
She also accused the organizations of “taking unreal advantage of the American taxpayer” by “pushing a globalist policy on the American people and forcing America to become something that we are not supposed to be.”
Greene then declared that the federal government should cut off foreign aid to nations from which undocumented immigrants are arriving.
“We should hold those countries accountable,” she said. “‘Oh, I’m sorry, Guatemala, you’re not getting a check this year because you’ve sent X number of thousands and tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands and millions of people to illegally invade our country as if they’re an army. They may not have guns, but they’re the numbers of a regiment of an army. We won’t be able to send you your foreign aid until you bring your people back.’”
“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.”
