Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) was heckled by a teenage girl and booed by the crowd during an appearance at a Montgomery Party Tea Party PAC meeting this week.
During a question-and-answer session on Monday evening, a young woman took the microphone and said:
“I’ve seen you claim to be a Christian.
“You’ve talked about God, but when you claim Jesus to be a hero archetype, you not only lied about Jesus not being real, but you lied about being a Christian.”
She read a recent quote Crenshaw gave on a podcast and said: “I can’t wrap my head around this.”
Crenshaw seemed upset by the question and rudely rebuked her: “Well, I will help you.
“Put a period after Jesus and don’t question my faith.” (See video below)
The crowd erupted with some booing Crenshaw while others told him not to talk to a kid in that manner.
One man can be heard yelling, “moron.”

Crenshaw continued: “Nowhere in that quote am I saying Jesus is not real.
“That’s a ridiculous statement”
Someone in the audience asked Crenshaw if Jesus is the son of God.
“Of course, he’s the son of God.”
The young girl says: “You can say two different things.
“You can say that on a podcast, and you can say this here.”
Crenshaw said: “On the podcast, nobody would have understood it that way.
“I think you’re twisting it that way, which is not very Christ-like, which is not very Christian.
“It’s not. It’s not, and I’m not going to have my faith questioned.”
Tonight at the Montgomery County Tea Party meeting, @DanCrenshawTX was confronted by an 18 y/o girl about him calling Jesus a hero archetype.
He had an opportunity to build bridges & respond in love but, instead, he did this…#JamesonEllisForCongress #FireDCfromDC pic.twitter.com/rY4rmI4YDU
