  •  Why is she having such problems with migraines (7+ / 0-)

    in the first place?

    She and her husband believe and teach that Jesus can cure homosexuality as long as you're paying out the vuvuzela for Herr Bachmann's "therapy" or having the government pay for it? And he can't take care of her migraines? Won't Jesus do anything you ask him to do as long as you have faith no bigger than a mustard seed? Is her faith so lacking that Jesus won't answer her prayers and rid her of this plague?

    I prayed for too many years as a child and teenager, that God would cure me -- either that or just not let me wake up in the morning. For these bigots to suggest in their clinic that all you need to do is pray and God will heal you of being gay, is nothing short of malpractice. they need to start applying their advice to their own lives and get it to remove the scourge of migraines from this poor woman.

    I mean it's God's will for her to be president as she's intimated more than once, he'd heal her, right?

    •  This is So Misreading (0+ / 0-)

      Her position and the Bible.  Why would you make a gratuitious hack at religous folks when you don't need to?  Stop it.  That's one of the few really bad things about this site.  

      •  I am not misreading her position at all. (5+ / 0-)

        These so-called religious people claim that God will cure you from being homosexual. They preach it and it's a central part of the "therapy" offered at the Bachmann's clinic.

        As for the Bible, I grew up in a fundamentalist church and had the Bible shoved down my throat every day of my life. From the time I was able to read, we we taught and read the Bible from cover to cover every year.

        Yours isn't the only form of Christianity. There is no "real" Christianity since every sect that calls itself Christian claims that theirs is the "real" Christianity. The Bachmanns are no exception.

        There are more Baptist denominations and sects alone than can be counted, not including independent churches, all with varying interpretations of scripture and belief systems, and you're telling me that I personally am misreading the Bible? Just because I said something that you personally disagree with?

        I get sick and tired of people using the excuse that says Westboro Baptist is not real Christianity ... or fundamentalists are not real Christians ... or Unitarian Universalists are not real Christians ... or Mormonism isn't a real religion ... or this sect interprets the scriptures wrong ... whatever.

        I know the Bachmann style of Christianity from personal experience: i grew up indoctrinate and brainwashed in it and I'll criticize it eagerly. My post does exactly that; it in no way criticizes other religious beliefs. Nothing gratuitous at all about that

      •  I think fritzrth captures the Bachmanns (5+ / 0-)

        position on the Bible perfectly. If you can pray the gay away, a migraine is small potatos. Any 'gratuitous' hacking of religion is being done is by the Bachmanns.

        For money.

        Out in the west Texas town of El Paso...
