Michele Bachmann's Most Dangerous Lie

A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue. Proverbs 17:4.

Michele Bachmann’s low regard for the truth is widely known; whether skewering the basic American history she holds so dear, or launching attacks on Obama, lobbing any ammunition regardless of however ridiculous or slanderous, her imagination invents its own realities. Facts have no place in her narrative unless they concur with her bizarre worldview.

Pulitzer prize winning Politifact recently published an analysis of 26 recent Bachmann statements, and rated them: true, half true, barely true, false, and pants on fire. Ranging from ridiculous to outrageous, her lies are legendary. Yet while all this is amusing in a pathetic way, there is a much greater lie she disseminates, a lie of which the Devil is the author.

Ye are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and he abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. John 8:44

Bachmann wears her ‘faith’ on her sleeve, but her actions give reason to question the words on her lips. A Christian woman who had raised 28 children and was running for president would be a passionate champion of causes like education, the WIC nutrition program, health services, and the growing number of homeless children. Yet she is one of the Republicans who are working to dismantle and destroy these programs: to defund schools while vilifying teachers; to cut programs that feed the poor to finance tax breaks for corporate America; and who continue to ignore the homeless, many of whom are the collateral damage of the foreclosure crisis they manufactured as a massive grift. Filled with the Holy Ghost, Bachmann would deliver the poor, the needy, the disabled and disadvantaged, and the downtrodden from their distresses. Instead, she is their oppressor.

A Christian would live in reverential awe of God's wondrous creation, and would strive to preserve it for her children's generation. Bachmann has vowed to undo every last environmental regulation she can get her hands on.

Jesus healed all who came to him. If she becomes president Bachmann has vowed to slash health care for millions of poor.

Where a Christian would do good, Bachmann wreaks evil. Where a Christian would show brotherly love, she and her tea party inflame hatred. She is no Christian, she is a liar, and a dangerous one at that; for all who believe and follow her, and her cold-hearted Christianity, which is false, will plummet into the same abyss.

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and the murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Revelation 21:8

  1. I hope that every true follower of Jesus would speak like this!!

    Even when "we" ourselves can't write this well, we can share this kind of Blog in as many ways/with every one we can.

  2. I can't possibly agree with you more. I have a real problem with the so-called Christians who flaunt their 'faith' so sanctimoniously. The Jesus I was taught to believe in taught humility and that pride and hatred were deadly sins.

  3. Gandhi: I like your Christ; your "Christians," not so much. I agree with Kay.
