Michele Bachmann Recounts The Last 5,000 Years Of Human History, All The Way Back To Dinosaurs

Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota congresswoman who does not receive enough SNL parodying, is in no mood to be a revolutionary. “In 5,000 years of recorded human history… neither in the east or in the west… has any society ever defined marriage as anything other than between men and women,” she told an audience last night at the Iowa Family Leader’s presidential lecture series, the place where Ron Paul got confused about whether he supports gay marriage. “Not one in 5000 years of recorded human history. That’s an astounding fact and it isn’t until the last 12 years or so that we have seen for the first time in recorded human history marriage defined as anything other than between men and between women.” Stay tuned for MiBach’s labeling of judges as “black-robed masters” and calling Planned Parenthood the “LensCrafters of big abortion.” At least this lady has cool catchphrases. (It was at MiBach’s other speech in Iowa that a radical gender, sexuality and women’s studies major heckled her.) [photo via]

    I loathe that woman with every fiber of my being…

    The woman needs to read “Same Sex Unions in Premodern Europe” by John Boswell. And Christianity, Social Tolerance and Homosexuality” by the same author. And she needs to learn of the Greek city states and the Roman Republic & Empire — the three of which not only had gay unions, but gay leaders, gay soldiers and for the Greeks, a gay god — Zeus who did snap up Gannymede. Still, all over the Christian world, from the year Zero to roughly 1400 there were gay unions celebrated and consecrated in churches. And Saints Serge & Bacchus, inseparable in life, were martyred together.

    And too, she might well consult First Samuel, chap. 18-22 for the love story of Jonathan and David “which God did bless.” Particularly in that version by good ol’ gay boy, King James.

    And then in all this she can find that in fact, until the mid-1300s in France it seems no where had anti-gay legislation whatsoever anywhere within the Western, or European, world we come from.

    And then, after that bit of research this lady might know of what she speaks.

    Perhaps she would be happier living 5,000 years ago, but most of us prefer progress. She is a dolt and will say anything that will appeal to the extreme right wingnuts, however, her time is limited, as is her appeal.
