Michele Bachmann’s Incredible Blasphemy

Penn Jillette describes Michele Bachmann’s incredible blasphemy in this video. Hit the play button to see how disgusting mainstream Christians can get on national TV:

It is an insult to religious people everywhere… The idea that you would lightly state that people are suffering and dying in order to prove that God is on the side of a politician is sickening.

The only reason that Bachmann and Rick Perry are able to say this stuff is because of a magic word, and the magic word is Christian.

    No, not really.

    “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

    Wow, what a searing and insightful rebuttal.

    Anyone who would listen to Bachmann is not thinking clearly, so Bachmann can say anything she likes.

    Yawn. Jillette can be entertaining at times, but he is not deep. He does make a point about his unreasonable optimism sometimes leading to him being wrong. This seems to ring true in light of his comments at the end of screed where he says that Bachmann and Perry are not crazy. Of course this could be explained away: Bachmann has demonstrated time and again her willingness to lie, so the more offensive xtian comments may possibly be discounted, and as a result, her sanity can be argued to be less suspect. Perry is clearly very stupid, which makes it easier to hold xtian beliefs. Stupidity is not the same as insanity, but Perry seems to walk the fine line separating the two.

    The good point Jillette makes is the one about how xtians are being herded into a monolith versus the sects they correctly occupy. Again, I do not see that as a group in its death-throes. Islam, while having had many sects over time is basically down to two, and this largely is a result of the outside pressure from the Crusades, Mongols, etc.

    Yes, I would expect a magician to be the source of information of many Liberal Americans. You will need much magic to keep the crop of politicians now running the country into bankruptcy in office.

    I remember well the young black lady being interviewed about all of Barrack’s policies before the 2008 elections.

    She replied “Yes it is wonderful” as the reporter went by them one by one.

    Turns out every position was McCain’s not Barrack’s.

    This is the liberal cancer that will be voting for the one with the most handouts, not the one best to save the nation.

    One might imagine that, but if they really thought that, then they would be demonstrating their ignorance. So, you don’t really think that, do you?
