Michele Bachmann Headlines Wingnut Prayer Rally Before RNC, Warns of Spiritual Hurricane: VIDEO


Right Wing Watch posts a highlight reel from Focus on the Family's and the Florida Family Policy Council’s “Prayer Rally for America’s Future” in Tampa’s River Church, featurincast of crackpots Michele Bachmann, Rick Scarborough, Jim Garlow, Mat Staver, Pam Olsen and Harry Jackson.

Bachmann told participants that “at this moment in our End Time we are quite literally looking at a hurricane here at Florida, we are looking at political hurricane in our own country, we are looking at a spiritual hurricane in our land,” telling them to “show up and suit up and stand up” and “pour it out for Him.” Scarborough mourned the prominence of Lady Gaga, “the Big Bang Theory,” Jerry Seinfeld, and “Brokeback Mountain,” while Jim Garlow warned that Satan is pushing gay rights in order to “destroy the image of God” and curtail freedom.

Staver said that courts have begun to “deconstruct the foundation of law,” leading to tyranny, legal abortion and same-sex marriage, and Olsen prayed for the Supreme Court to repent: “Lord we cry out for the US Supreme Court, God that these justices will realize that there is a judge higher than they are and God that they will bow before You. We a crying out for a president that will appoint pro-life justices that will stand for truth and this nation will turn back to You, touch the Supreme Court now.”

Watch the nuttiness go down, AFTER THE JUMP...

  7. If these people said this stuff in the UK or France they'd be laughed out of town.

  12. Yep, as Tim quoted Holden Caulfield:

    "Old Jesus would just puke."

  13. Lady Gaga, “the Big Bang Theory,” Jerry Seinfeld, and “Brokeback Mountain”...D'oh! These clearly all are HUGE cultural drivers if you're concerned about the culture of years ago.

  14. Their beef with Jerry Seinfeld?

    He's a Jew.

    "Not that there's anything wrong with that."

  15. @tommyboy.....

    sadly one branch of my family are deep end fundies. The kids have NEVER been to real schools - either church schools or "home" schooling. They only get to associate with other family or kids from their church. If its non family then its always a controlled situation. They cant play with other kids in their neighborhood. Their TV/internet is completely controlled - dont get me started on the xmas someone turned on Harry Potter to entertain the kids.

    Anyway, my point is that sadly there are younger people who this stuff seems normal because they havent been exposed to anything else and it sounds perfectly normal.

    Luckily, a number of "bible" colleges have sprung up the last 30 years who will accept these ignorant brats and keep them in the bubble until their 20s.

  16. I suppose it's *possible* for me to dislike Michele Bachmann more than I already do, but it would take her clubbing a baby seal to death on my front porch or something like that.

    It would take some real effort for her to sink any lower in my estimation.

  17. People have been proclaiming the end of the world ever since they could put together a sentence. She's just one more nut in the Planter's jar.

  18. Seriously, don't expect anyone to take you or us seriously if you're reporting on their lunacy and can't even spell check the article.

  21. If I believed the "end of days" were at hand...I wouldn't be spending time spewing hate and hoarding cash in the name of "god".
    Why wouldn't this nutjob be on a nice vacation from ugly thoughts, on a beach somewhere...spending her millions before the sky came falling down because of the gays? And Marcus could be getting his hair & nails done, facials and general pampering that lovely body of hers. What a waste of their last few days.

  22. Well, that could serve as conversation at the asylum.

  23. "If I believed the 'end of days' were at hand...I wouldn't be spending time spewing hate and hoarding cash in the name of 'god'."

    It has amazed me that the Religious Right hides the fact that the Epistles of Paul in the New Testament are not exactly a ringing endorsement of marriage. Paul believed that the 'end of days' was near. Therefore, there really was no point to marrying - except perhaps because one was extremely horny.

  24. The really scarey thing about all of these "Nut Jobs" is that they actually believe the nonsense they are spewing out. It is not an act to be laughed at.
