Per Salon, Michele Bachmann took part in a “newsmaker interview” at Patrick Henry College, a conservative evangelical school in Virginia. Or as I like to call it, a “You still here?” interview.
When asked about the “inevitability” of gay marriage, Bachmann said,
“I won’t be deviating,” explaining that no matter what humans think, God created marriage and that is unquestionable.
Unquestionable! No doubt about it! What she believes is the truth. For everyone. Ever.
So who created marriage for atheists and people who believe differently? Oo! Oo! I know! *waving hand wildly* Pick me! People did! Mostly the two people who wanted to get married. Or people who benefited from their getting married. Those people.
Asked if any good came from feminism, Bachmann said that realizing that “women are valuable and that women should be listened to is very important.” However, she continued, “But in my opinion, that wasn’t feminism, that was Jesus Christ who did that. Because Jesus Christ did more to lift up women… We didn’t need the 1960s to tell us that, all you have to do is read Proverbs 31.”
Mmmnotsomuch Michelle, those “valuable” women pretty much lifted themselves up, and it hasn’t been easy. They’ve had a little assistance from a few very wise men who have recognized the obvious, that men and women are equals.
But perhaps her most revealing answers came when she spoke about her failed presidential bid. “I was very proud of the fact that I didn’t get anything wrong that I said during the course of the debates. I didn’t get anything wrong and that’s a huge arena,” she said.
America begs to differ:
And sometimes it’s not what Michele said that was wrong, it’s what she did that caused some murmurs and head scratching. Remember that Where oh where was Michele Bachmann? moment during the debate? If only Jesus had filled us in on her whereabouts.
Oh, and this happened: Was the debate de-Bachmann’d?
The nation should be de-Bachmann’d, and that is “unquestionable.”
