Second Opinion

Michele Bachmann Is “Sorry” That Jan Brewer Vetoed Antigay Bill In Arizona


Someone, somewhere is still clamoring for Queen of cray-cray Michele Bachmann’s opinion on things, and now she’s weighing in over Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s veto of that outrageously offensive “turn away the gays” bill that almost passed.

Taking time away from her busy schedule of avoiding ethics investigations and spewing antigay hatred, Bachmann took the time to chat with Jeff Zeleny of the ABC News/Yahoo News online talk show The Fine Print.

After the initial “sorry” statement, she expanded on her thoughts about the Arizona situation, and they’re pretty much what you’d expect.

“I believe that tolerance is a two-way street, and we need to respect everyone’s rights, including the rights of people who have sincerely held religious beliefs. Religious liberties and the protection of our religious liberties is right. Right now, there’s a terrible intolerance afoot in the United States, and it’s against people who hold sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Do you think that she may have been able to reference religion just a few more times in that quote?

She doesn’t elaborate as to how exactly LGBT people and allies are being intolerant of anyone else (and of course ignores gay Christians), but the rhetoric of entitled victimhood that she and her Tea Party patriots are now famous for doesn’t leave much room for facts or common sense.

As it is a midterm election year, expect to see more of her foolishness as the year progresses.

Apparently the gift that was sent her way by some of her allies wasn’t taking up enough of her time.

    Ok, so if people in Bachman’s home state hold the “religious Belief” that women should be beaten for trying to influence the opinions of men.

    But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

    What a wretched woman this is. Married to a flaming closet case with no children of her own, only able to adopt girls for OBVIOUS reasons, having a seriously unfulfilled sex life. Is it any wonder she takes out all her hostility on the gay community. Michelle, you are so transparent it almost just makes you disappear. Please, just disappear already. Unfortunately we will be seeing her googly eyes quite often as a FOX news commentator.

    The lady is a certified basket case. My sentiment towards anything that vomits out of her mouth can be summed up in a Nancy Pelosi response when asked about her thought on a comment Bachmann made denouncing the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on DOMA while channeling God. Pelosi shrugged her shoulders and so eloquently said: “Who cares?”

    The ultimate political bitches of the conservative right wing: Bachmann, Brewer, and Failin’ Palin! If these three would just shut up, the Repugnican/TeaPod Party might just survive another two years. But I wouldn’t bet the month’s rent on it!

    You could have ended your headline after the word “sorry.”

    What’s this “sincerely held religious belief” noise?
    Is there no test to discover who is devout and who isn’t?

    This baloney is the dust-up from bakeries and photographers who want to disapprove of gay couples by denying services. They could simply look in their calendar and say, “I’m sorry, we’re all booked up.” But no, they want to raise their nose and shake a finger.

    Perhaps they should have a HYMEN CHECK to make sure the heterosexual woman is a virgin, otherwise she should be taken to the steps of her father’s house and stoned. I sure hope they’re not providing services to divorced people getting married, that’s adultery. And since so many holy rollers object to marriage equality on the grounds that same-sex couples can’t procreate, let’s include fertility testing.

    I still don’t get how providing a product or service for a gay person compromises a person’s religious beliefs unless you run a glory hole business or something. Also, how would clerks or business owners determine if someone is gay? Could you be “turned away” for just seeming gay? The fact that something like this could even be proposed without a unanimous or near-unanimous disgust, that someone would even dignify a bill like this by reviewing….shows we have a lot of work to do.

    The only GOD that “Crazy Eyes” Bachmann worships is the “ALMIGHTY DOLLAR”, thank you very much !!!!

  • EGO

    Uh duh……..

    It is amazing how stupid people like Bachman can be. Religious people can continue to believe what they want WITHIN their religion and not force their beliefs OUTSIDE their religion. LGBTs do not affect these people’s religious freedoms to practice their beliefs WITHIN their religion.
