megachurch minister Eddie Long's wife files for divorce.  Eddie Long is the Atlanta virulently antigay prosperity gospel minister who was caught up in a scandal involving 4 young men who accused him of sexual abuse while they were teenagers, and settled out of court.

@Darren
Yeah, her "law of the land" strategy is pretty stupid too.  So I guess the law of the land is supreme and she doesn't plan to change anything.  Oh, wait...

Darren, if we in the US elect her....  Oh jesus, I can't imagine.  But then I thought that about GW Bush.  And then most of my worst imaginings were exceeded by reality.  You got a spare room?

Comment by Darren Taggart on December 2, 2011 at 6:03am
Bachman and her high school debating club arguments are pure common denominator; as if it was the questioner's fault for forgetting to add the qualifier of 'to each other'. It's the same as when they winge on about the definition of marriage in the dictionary being sufficient reason to deny gay marriage, as though it's impossible to edit a dictionary. Childish reasoning of an idiot. Next she'll be saying that freedom of religion means that she's free to impose her christian beliefs on everyone.

If you US lot elect her I shall be very disappointed with you and may even use my iPad slightly less in protest! (joking, ovvers;-))

@Dallas
Lol the comments have really blown up on your video, huh?  And as for the other video, Bachman worded her answer to the gay marriage question SO well.  She has received guidance from intelligent people.  Gays DO have the right to marry.  Gay marriage is not a gay right; it's a right for straights too.  It puts things in a little different perspective for me.

Her rant about religion in schools was also very well-worded.  I can see how a like-minded crowd would rally around her.  She also puts this issue in a different perspective for me.  I realize how important the Department of Education is after seeing this.  Sorry, but public schools are not churches.  That's what private schools are for.

Finally, WHY is everyone posting in the comments section?  I feel like most of what gets said down here deserves a discussion.

A friend of mine had a good idea.  Carry slips of paper with you to drop into Salvation Army Kettles, which explain why you are not donating.
I thought of these four as a sample of what you could write.  Use one or all four, or one of your own.
Why I Will Not Donate to the Salvation Army:
1. When my dad was on the docks loading up to board a ship to to fight a war in Korea, Goodwill was out there giving soldiers cups of coffee. The Salvation Army was out there SELLING cups of coffee to the service men.
2. Like other profit making religious organizations, you file for tax exemption under religion, and therefore do not file a 990 form which would declare your income and what you do with your money.
3. You charge a price for feeding the needy.  That price is obedience to your religion, forcing those who are down and out to pray for their supper, despite individual personal beliefs.
4. You blatantly ignore your position statement of helping all who are in need and deny LGBT people services unless they renounce their sexuality, end same-sex relationships, or, in some cases, attend services "open to all who confess Christ as Savior and who accept and abide by The Salvation Army's doctrine and discipline." In other words, if you're gay or lesbian, you don't qualify.

she got into, and stays in, office because people vote for her.  I have not heard if there is a competing candidate for the upcoming election.  If not, it's partly the fault of the democrats in her district as well.  People can only vote her out if there is a viable opponent.

Comment by Daniel Wachenheim on December 1, 2011 at 7:10pm

I don't know which is more annoying - Bachmann or the people who applauded her.  And what schools allow muslims but not christians to pray?  Ms. Bachmann will eliminate the dept of education....  jesus...."When I was growing up in Iowa, there was no fed dept of education" - yeah, and look what resulted, dimwit.

Maybe if I smiled that much people would think I'm as cute as this guy.   Naaahhhhh....

 

 

Comment by Daniel Wachenheim on November 29, 2011 at 9:16am

I don't think that guy is educatable.  Language barrier aside, he makes little sense.  Willful ignorance remains ignorance regardless of the hoops that one jumps through to inform.  Might as well try teaching monkeys to crochet.
