Michele Bachmann Unhappy Jan Brewer Vetoed Arizona's Anti-Gay Bill


In an interview with Yahoo's The Fine Print, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) expressed disappointment that Jan Brewer vetoed SB 1062, the anti-gay 'religious freedom' bill.

Said Bachmann:  “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.”

  1. "...who hold sincerely held religious beliefs.”

    LOL @ the redunancy.

  2. Oh yes, Michelle, because the Bible and the Constitution are so much alike they're practically the same document. You dummy!

  4. My sincerely held religious belief is that Michelle Bachmann is a fag hag in denial. Marcus, we know what you are!

  5. Does Bachmann really want the government to establish regulations regarding whether a religious belief is sincere or not.

    Example: To be sincere the believer must attend two church services a month, tithe 10 percent to a religious charity, and be on a first name basis with a religious leader. etc.

  6. An intolerance of people with deeply-held religious beliefs? Please show me one example of a Christian in this country who's been attacked and beaten walking out of their church. Show me one example of a Christian kid being harassed and bullied and called "Bible thumper!" at his high school to the point that he's suicidal. Show me one example of a Christian couple who wasn't allowed to get married or adopt a child because they believe in god.

    If there's one thing, other than intolerance, that Christians are good at, it's being completely ignorant of the facts.

    I wonder what Bachmann had to say about that mosque that was being built near ground zero? How much did the deeply-held religious beliefs of those people matter to her at the time? Don't answer that -- I probably already know the answer.

    I think it's time we fed some good Christians to lions again. Let's start with her.

  7. Why is this idiot still relevant?

  8. "We're so sorry! This video is not available in your location."

    Now that makes a ton of sense for a global internet company such as Yahoo.

  9. “The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it.”

    ― Neil deGrasse Tyson

    Sincerely held religious belief could be just BS.

  10. What if it were my religious belief that women should not speak in public or can't be served in an establishment without being accompanied by a man? Would she defend that? She's the pits.

  11. Amazing how medical science has found a way to make someone completely brain dead walk and talk.

  12. "Rep. Bachmann's husband, Marcus Bachmann, was unable to express his own views on the matter, owing to the fact he couldn't get the cock out of his mouth before airtime.

  13. Bachmann is a hardcore Dominionist who wants to abolish the civil government and create a theocracy

  14. In protest, she's refusing to have sex with Marcus.

  15. @Ryan - and how appropriate is it that this story is right above the one about the poor man being beaten unconscious for being gay. Pathetic victimhood versus real-world results of hate.

  16. My sympathies to you, Michelle. If only I knew what it was like to feel the oppression you're feeling.

  17. @CPT_DOOM: I thought that was very telling, as well!

  20. “I believe that tolerance is a two-way street"

    OK, then, you first.

    Posted by: JJ | Mar 5, 2014 1:39:03 PM

  21. 'Tolerance is a two way street.'

    Was this what you argued for the past two decades while trying to oppress LGBT families? Was that tolerance? Cause it sure felt like good old fashioned hatred to me. Legislation to deny police, and doctor, & emergency assistance to anyone you perceive as different? Sponsored by the same hate groups now spreading their venom across Africa.

    Go to Uganda & Nigeria and tell them about how tolerance is a two way street. Asswipe.

  22. People can have "sincerely held religious beliefs" - what MB fails to see as a distinction is these people cannot use these to violate the civil rights of others by refusing to serve them or in any other way impose their religious beleifs on others. If you want to believe any of these myths, no problem - if you want to bring them into public discourse to deny others their civil rights then there is a huge problem. Sadly, MB will never see the distinction.

  23. Religious abuse is literally killing gay people in this world. Why don't people like her ever talk about that??????????????????

    Posted by: Canny | Mar 5, 2014 1:50:41 PM

  24. "sincerely held religious beliefs"

    I agree with Kieran. This phrase is just an attempt to sound worthy of special privilege.

    But it's not really redundant. It's a way to disparage any opposition, by embedding in the public consciousness the idea that THEY are the sincere ones.

    The implication is that everyone else is insincere, and not deserving of equal treatment.

  25. I can't believe this woman. Living in a Christian Gay Marriage herself, and still spewing her hate in the name of Christianity. Hers are the views that keep many from associations with ANY religious groups - Persiod.
