Weeks before her home state Minnesota legalized marriage equality, Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) warned against the dangers of same-sex marriage unless all the good Christians embark on a “spiritual warfare” to fight this rampant evil.
While speaking at the Liberty Council’s Awakening 2013 in April (video courtesy of Right Wing Watch), Bachmann hit all of her usual talking points.
“You see if we retreat from our values and fail to make the case on issues like marriage – because it is one man, one woman – because God said it is,” she proclaimed from the stage. “Not because it’s poll tested – because God said it is.” Well, if He says so…
While neither Bachmann nor hubby Marcus has yet to comment publicly on the Minnesota Senate approving the marriage equality bill, she did send a tweet patting herself on the back for dubious past achievements.
I’m proud to have introduced the original traditional marriage amendment, and I thank all Minnesotans who have worked so hard on this issue.
