Michele Bachmann Should Not 'Get a Pass' on Past Membership in Anti-Catholic Church Comments

During the last election, a question was raised about then candidate Barack Obama concerning his membership in a Church body which espoused Anti-Americanism. Will some of those same people ask this candidate, whom they seem to agree with on issues, about her affiliation with a Church body which espoused overt Anti-Catholicism?

    They shouldn't be. Catholic dogma has changed. Moreover, the Nazis were anti-Catholic neopagans. There is nothing Catholic about the death of St. Maximillian Kolbe or Edith Stein in the Holocaust, other than their martyrdom.
    The inquisition was not aimed at actual Jews but at crypto-Jews, crypto-Muslims, and non-Catholic Christians. I would hardly call the rampant anti-semetism of the left in Spain an improvement.

    But I'm a right-wing Jew, not a a victim-cultists.

    Rob: As long as the sanctity of life is not upheld, this country will always be divided, no matter who is in office. It is the PEOPLE that have to have a change of heart and wipe this abomination out. Debt ceiling, spending, Rep. party, Dem. party and everything else doesn't amount to a hill of beans. As long as we remain disobedient to God's laws, this country will never prosper. We have thrown God out of our country, why should He continue to bless us? Every Catholic out there needs to get on their knees in front of the Blessed Sacrament in adoration as often as they can and pray for this country like you have never prayed before. This country is going to he-- in a handbasket and I, personally, am not going with it. PRAY! PRAY! PRAY!

    Rob, I guess that Marxist Kool-Aid is cold and refreshing on these hot days. New info reveals that Bush spent 1.6 Billion dollars a day WHILE Obama is now spending 4.1 Billion Dollars a DAY. The Marxist-in-Chief and his Marxist minion Harry Reid have no intentions on solving our Great Depression II problems. They are hell bent that this country is going down. Companies are laying off by the thousands. Yet you continue to carry Obama's water like an obedient servant. As I've said before, Obama should be proud to have an obedient servant. That's how he and others like him get elected.

    JoAnn, have you ever considered the fact that the spending by Obama was merely what was needed to cover up decades of fiscal malfeasance by those in DC? Make no mistake, when the economy collapsed towards the end of the Bush presidency, the powers that be had no intentions of letting things unravel too much. If they did and we truly felt the impact of what they had done we would have probably had an armed revolution. But instead, they have TARP and stimulus programs merely to cover it up. Sure they tell us it's for jobs, but nope, it's to make sure the status quo is maintained so they keep us fat, dumb and happy. Obama just has the misfortune of being president when this all came apart. It's unfortunate that "he" generated the debt he did, but sadly the first stimulus program didn't cover it all up. But I think this time they really screwed things up because even that couldn't cover things up for long. So many decades of overspending, making promises we didn't even try to keep, a decade of unfunded wars, vote buying and pork spending have now all come crashing down. The result, the mess we have in DC right now as they scramble to find a solution to the mess that has been decades in the making. And the sad truth is their is no solution anymore. Yes, they will raise the debt ceiling as they have always done. Any minute now they will annouce the grand plan that will have "large" cuts that no one can figure out and for a time, the status quo will be maintained. We'll go on with our bickering and they will laugh all the way to the bank. Evil agenda?? They all do. It's about them getting ahead, maintaining power and they will do anything and say anything for that power. It does not matter what party is in power, it really doesn't. But the joke really is on us for thinking that one party has the answer or that one is solely to blame. But so long as we continue to think that, they win. Keep the people fat, dumb and happy. Keep the people divided and they can never effect change, never.

    I would think that there are bigger "fish to fry" than Bachmann's supposed anti-catholic thinking.

    Rob: Yes, that was one of the things I was unhappy with regarding the GOP. While Bush was in office, they did spend entirely too much. But absolutely no one spends money like the Dems. Obama spends $4B a DAY. He has spent 40% more than the GOP. As a matter of fact, he has spent more money than any other president from Geo. Washington to Ronald Reagan. He is purposely overwhelming the U. S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos--thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within. You say you don't think he is smart enough. Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing. He has an evil agenda and if he gets in for another 4 yrs., you won't recognize this country. I'm having a hard time recognizing it now. He has weakened the US, his policy on homeland security is next to nothing and he is too sympathetic to our enemies. He is throwing Israel (our friendliest and most trusted ally) under the bus. He wants open borders because he hates capitalism and colonialism. (I think we've discussed this before) He is the biggest offender of human rights. Not far behind China, etc. He is subjecting our country to a Machiavellian game plan to turn the US into a Socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival--and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. He is not doing this all alone. He has plenty of help with his Czars & Andy Stern, "weather underground hippie/radical Bill Ayers and so on. His regulation Czar, Cass Sustein calls us Homer Simpsons. Since abortion is the law of the land, it is not going to be easy to overturn Roe v Wade but a lot of progress has been made on local levels. At least in my state it has. Humanity is supposed to evolve into higher, more intelligent spiritual beings but the opposite has occurred. We are turning into hateful, barbaric, selfish anarchist and we have just about become ungovernable.

    JoAnn, the problem I have as that when it comes to money the GOP has managed to do a lot without the numbers. But for whatever reason they won't put the same energy into pro-life issues. I just don't think they get a pass on this issue if that is the primary reason we are putting them in office. The bigger problem is that these guys have us exactly where they want us. They know we won't vote for the other guy, so the pressure really isn't on to deliver. That is a huge problem for the American people.
