Michele Bachmann Calls for 'Spiritual Warfare' Against Gay Marriage: VIDEO


To go along with yesterday's clip of Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) delivering a hysterical sermon about how 9/11 and Benghazi were God's wrath, here's a new one unearthed by Right Wing Watch in which she calls on Christians to engage in "spiritual warfare" to fight gay marriage.

She gave this speech in mid-April at the Liberty Counsel's 'Awakening' conference.

Says Bachmann in the clip:

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. Not because it’s poll tested – because God said it is. And life – not because it’s poll tested, because God stands for life. He made us in his image and likeness. And if we tread too softly on issues, like taking on Islamic jihad, and if we fight too timidly, and if we strive too meekly, then I think we all understand we very easily could come face to face with defeat, and then our nation would in fact pay a great and a lasting price, one that none of us wants to face.


Because we need to recognize the desperate situation of our condition, not only in the natural but also in the supernatural. Because as the scripture was read from the pulpit at Margaret Thatcher’s funeral, we fight not against this world, we fight against the powers and principalities and 'Prince of the Air,' that’s where we need to focus as well, is on spiritual warfare…

  1. the irony that she and her followers are barely different from the "Islamists" they love to loathe will, of course, be lost on them.

    people that think and promote the idea that "God" is on "their side" are the cause of all the world's problems.

  2. She is stark raving mad. An utter loon. No point even trying to analyze her intentions or message.

  4. It is scary to think that at one time this insane woman was considered a viable republican presidential candidate.

  6. Spiritual warfare? See you on the battlefield, Looney Tunes.

  7. She needs to pull her head out of her ass! It's not a hat!

  8. She still thinks she has a chance at the presidency? She is too much even for the GOP which desperately needs to revamp their image.

  9. *HOW* does this nutjob continue to get elected?!

  10. If the Republican Party could approve of her as a candidate for office, what hope does that give the party for survival in the modern world? The Republican Party better wake up from it's ideology, the likes of Michele Bachmann are beginning to make the party look just like she does.

  11. Just so everyone knows, "spiritual warfare" is a very common term in evangelical Christianity. It's a phrase that refers to Ephesians chapter 6, in which the Apostle Paul used multiple metaphors from war, including the "shield of faith," the "helmet of salvation," "sword of the spirit" and so on. It's become more of a catchphrase in the last few decades, thanks to popular novels like "This Present Darkness" and the "Left Behind" series. When Christians talk about spiritual warfare, they're essentially talking about studying their Bibles and praying in specific terms. Some Christians think that if you use certain phrases or meditate on certain ideas -- like a 'hedge of protection' or being covered by the 'blood of Jesus,' your prayers will be more effective.

    Is Michelle Bachmann crazy? Yes. But while it's rare to hear this kind of language from an elected politician, it's NOT rare to hear this kind of language within the evangelical church.

  12. She is isolating herself politically and that is a good thing.

  13. With her nashing of teeth, she probably feels right at home in her personal little hell. I'm absolutely positive this kind of extreme behavior has something to do with Marcus Pigus.

  15. Crazy b*tch didn't lose her marbles - she smashed them into a fine dust and snorted it.

  16. One Man/One Woman...Interesting, since Lamech is the first of a long line of biblical men with more than one wife. So were exactly does one man/woman traditional marriage fit in, Michelle?

  17. Where's the outcry against Bachmann's hate speech from those in the religious right that don't want to be called out for being bigots?

    All those Senators on the floor of the Minnesota legislature yesterday, what say you to this? She's one of your very own.

  18. She wants warfare? Really? Or is it just "spiritual warfare" in that she wants the bigots and the feeble-minded simply to prostrate themselves and pray for deliverance from this evil equality mumbo-jumbo? The latter is fine with me... the former? Bring it. Go ahead. You start.

  19. Michele Bachmann is undoubtedly paid by these "conferences" to speak to views she may or may not even hold. It's shameful what some people will do simply for an appearance fee.

    It's really truly sick but even in the not so distant past, someone erected and lit the cross. I'm sure even her God is going to question her behavior. She probably won't allow Him to question her though.

  20. May a large flock of scurrilous angels giggle and laugh at the Bachman woman - a silly joke in the large throng of humanity.

  21. Bachmann has become so delusional that giving her a microphone is starting to seem almost sadistic. She doesn't even have Pat Robertson's excuse of old age.

  22. Bachmann is the best thing that could happen to the Democratic Party. Please...don't let anything happen to her!!!

  23. I can't wait for the day when her husband finally comes out. #eatcrowBachmann

  24. I think Little Kiwi is right on this is just like Islamist s they are just as dug in to there religious rhetoric as the Islamist s. Why can't they just mind there own business the whole world will never believe like them, just as the whole world will never be Islam

  25. Spiritual Warfare: Beat the hell out of the nearest homo you can find, beat them with your holy fists of light powered by god's love, or if you can find one, a burning sword of vengeance much like the angels of yore! Beat them until Satan's essence is turned from their battered homo souls, and you can reclaim their broken bodies for christ! What a glorious day to execute God's love for humanity!
