I have long said that the religious beliefs and practices of Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christians have far more in common with the Pharisees and Sadducees of Jesus’ day than they do with the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. That is why I find it so frustrating that authentic Christians are often painted with the came brush as these hypocrites. Frank Brunt pointed out this contrast extremely well.

I find more in common between "hippies" and the so called word of jesus.
while I am totally unreligious,I am spiritual,and believe in something called nature.
these hypocritical religious people are just using religion as an excuse to judge others,plainly in contrast to the teaching of all the great prophets. The B'Hai faith at least counts them all from moses,mohammed,and jesus to their own B'hahula. You can't twist belief to suit your own moral beliefs,that's what a mind is for.
Something Bachmann would rather waste, and not mind.A waste is a terrible thing to mind,lol

Not even gonna start on this THING today. Execpt it ties into what I am about to rant on....
Just voted in a run-off election in my town and funny thing was, the election staff circled a number and the 'D' on my voter registration card in red felt tip pen and made sure everyone in there heard her tell me and another democrat where the democratic lock box was (when clearly we can READ and have EYES and have BRAINS that can distingish the two friggin boxes set up) sheeeeeesh. We 'normal' 'sane' people are vastly outnumbered here in Tbagger, Redneckville. AND to top it off there was one repub candidate who had the very bad taste of having a big sign out in front of the voting station that said,"NRA ENDORSED" ..... like we don't know that every one of the GOP candidates around here are not backed by the NRA and Grover Norquist and MICHELLE BACKMAN'S TEA PARTY.
Ok, sorry peeps, just had to get that off my chest. I think we are about to go through a voter purge in this state and they are red tagging those of us who vote Democratic. Get ready, Kit. We're gonna be fun-havin' in a few weeks.

I signed a petition to have her removed from the House Intelligence Committee.. classic oxymoron!;) "As a member of the House Intelligence Committee, Bachmann has access to highly sensitive national security information — information that affects all of our safety." I cannot Imagine how this IDIOT amongst dolts Got that seat to begin with!!!!

From the article: "Does it endorse scaring young women away from immunizations that could spare them serious illness? Bachmann did that during her memorable presidential campaign, when she blithely drew an unsubstantiated link between a vaccine for the human papillomavirus and mental retardation."
I would never belittle the developmentally disabled. I have a nephew with Down Syndrome who is the sweetest and kindest human being I've ever known and whom I love dearly. However, when Michele Bachmann makes ridiculous and unsubstantiated comments that connect the vaccine for the human papillomavirus to mental retardation, I can't help but wonder if she was vaccinated and is making assumptions based on her personal experience.

She's becoming more unhinged with each passing day and in my opinion is so far removed from reality she's like a really bad caricature that's sprung to life from the pages of some conservative comic book. Thanks Tom.

I'm with everyone else - how on EARTH did this weird hate-filled woman who couldn't think her way out of a paper-bag, get put on an INTELLIGENCE committee???!!! That is one thing 'she just ain't got!' Neither has she any grasp or comprehension of Christianity - as TC says, she belongs to the Sadducees and Pharisees....

The Christian church expected followers to emulate Jesus until Constantine converted in the 3rd century and suddenly Christianity came with the perks of power and wealth if they no longer aligned with the poor and disenfranchised and thus the church began telling themselves conversion was sufficient and they didn't have to do the hard part of transforming themselves and their lives, etc.

Bachmann seems to be suffering from a not so rare but often misdiagnosed condition known as S.H.I.T. (Stupid, Hateful, Ignorant Trollistis) It seems to run rampant among extreme Funnymentalists, especially among those that manage to get into politics.
