Michelle Bachmann believes in freedom of religion. Her religion. Didn’t we have enough of a born again Christian fundamentalist President. These people believe in the end times bullshit. They believe in Armageddon. They believe that Christians need to have a fight to the death with Muslims. They really believe this shit. Bush went into Iraq because he believed it was destined and he was chosen by God. Bachmann is even crazier than Bush. Here is some info on her beliefs. And guess who else believes the same bullshit – Sarah Palin. If this country chooses one of these religious fanatics for President, we are finished. World War III will follow.
How about Michele getting up at a church and explaining how she will balance the budget, reduce the military, reform the tax code, and eliminate worthless government programs, and explaining her comprehensive energy plan. She feels much more comfortable invoking God than actually presenting any ideas. She is a vacuous religious nutjob.
Presidential candidate, Tea Party congresswoman Michele Bachmann launched 150,000 robo-calls to residents in Iowa and South Carolina on May 19th accusing Obama of not standing up for Israel. In her recent speech at the “Faith & Freedom Conference” held in D.C., Bachmann termed Obama’s call for a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict based on Israel’s 1967 boundaries and mutually agreed land swaps “shocking ” and she followed up by buying ads on Jewish websites reiterating her message.
After graduating from high school, Bachmann worked on a kibbutz in Israel near Beersheva; one of over 500 Palestinian villages and towns that Israel ethnically cleansed beginning in 1948. In 1986, Bachmann received a J.D. degree from Oral Roberts University, a cross-denominational/non-denominational Christian university that is part of a movement of individual, historically mainstream congregations who have adopted beliefs and practices similar to Pentecostals, which includes a wide range of different theologies, such as The NAR/New Apostolic Reformation.
The NAR is a religious movement of elites and regular people guided by an entire genre of books, texts, videos and other media. Among NAR adherents, is Sarah Palin and the NAR is one of the largest movements in America that nobody knows of due to the dearth of investigative reporting on the intersection of faith and politics. NAR videos “demonstrate the taking control of communities and nations through large networks of ‘prayer warriors’ whose spiritual warfare is used to expel and destroy the demons that cause societal ills. Once the territorial demons, witches, and generational curses are removed, the ‘born-again’ Christians in the videos take control of society…Leaders in the NAR movement refer to themselves as ‘apostles.’
“Along with her entire family, Sarah Palin was re-baptized at twelve at the Wasilla Assembly of God in Wasilla, Alaska and she attended the church from the time she was ten until 2002: over two and 1/2 decades. Sarah Palin’s extensive pattern of association with the Wasilla Assembly of God has continued nearly up to the day she was picked by Senator John McCain as a vice-presidential running mate.
“Palin has also been blessed, or ‘anointed’, by an African cleric, prominent in the Third Wave movement, who has repeatedly visited the Wasilla Assembly of God and claims to have effected positive, dramatic social change in a Kenyan town by driving out a ‘spirit of witchcraft.’ “The Wasilla Assembly of God church is deeply involved with both Third Wave activities and theology…The Third Wave is a revival of the theology of the Latter Rain tent revivals of the 1950s and 1960s led by William Branham and others. It is based on the idea that in the end times there will be an outpouring of supernatural powers on a group of Christians that will take authority over the existing church and the world. The believing Christians of the world will be reorganized under the Fivefold Ministry and the church restructured under the authority of Prophets and Apostles and others anointed by God. The young generation will form ‘Joel’s Army’ to rise up and battle evil and retake the earth for God…”
Bachmann At Iowa Church: ‘Turn Away From Our Wicked Ways’ And God Will ‘Heal Our Land’

Michele Bachmann courted evangelical Christian voters in Iowa over the weekend, urging a church congregation to pray for God to heal the country from its sins. It seems, then, she’s presenting herself as the sort of religious-based candidate who could be a good fit for a state where former governor and minister Mike Huckabee won the Republican caucuses in 2008.
As the Des Moines Register reports, Bachmann spoke Sunday to worship services at the evangelical Point of Grace Church in Waukee, Iowa. Speaking from the pulpit, she noted that the church has a replica of the famous painting that depicts George Washington praying at Valley Forge, and how she has a copy of the same painting in her Washington office.
“We too are at a crucial time today,” said Bachmann. “And I think it is for us to remember, that if we do as Chronicles tells us, if we humble ourselves, and pray and confess our sins, and turn away from our wicked ways, and ask an almighty God to come and protect us and fight the battle for us, we know from his word, his promise is sure. He will come. He will heal our land. And we will have a new day.”
“What he will do for one, he will do for all,” Bachmann also added. “And it is the same with nations as well. And as we seek him, he’s there for us. I have seen it. I have lived that in my own life since I came to him, out of his grace, in his mercy, back on November first of 1972. He is not partial. … He will do for you, and he will do for our nation. May God bless Point of Grace Church.”
(A note about the painting: While the image has gained something of an iconic status among conservatives, it was in no way contemporary to the events of Valley Forge or Washington’s life — it was made in 1975, to celebrate the nation’s upcoming bicentennial, by illustrator Arnold Friberg.)
