Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) was booed Monday night at a fundraiser for his response to a 10-year-old girl who asked him about a quote he made about Jesus.
She simply read his quote from a podcast episode with Jocko Willink.
“The most important thing here is that we have important hero archetypes that we look up to. Jesus is a hero archetype, Superman is a hero archetype. Real characters too, I could name a thousand, Rosa Parks and Ronald Reagan too. All of these people embody certain attributes that the American people think this is good,” she quoted him as saying.
The young lady added: “I can’t wrap my head around this.”
“I’ll help you,” Crenshaw shot back. “Put a period after the word Jesus and don’t question my faith.”
The crowd started booing the Texas representative and chanted “Let’s Go Brandon.”
National radio host Todd Starnes reacted Tuesday, telling listeners: “Folks, now you know who this guy is.”
