On Things That Make You Go “Ugh”

1. Headline: STEPHEN HAWKING’S BLUNDER ON BLACK HOLES SHOWS DANGER OF LISTENING TO SCIENTISTS, SAYS BACHMANN

Key Quote: “Actually, Dr. Hawking, our biggest blunder as a society was ever listening to people like you,” said Rep. Bachmann. “If black holes don’t exist, then other things you scientists have been trying to foist on us probably don’t either, like climate change and evolution.”

Minnesota, I get that she holds office due to gymnastics-level gerrymandering,  but I blame all of you. You’re dead to me until her term’s finally over.

2a. Headline: Fake arrests of pastors cause real grief for Summit County sheriff

Key Quotes: “The goal of the dramatization is to make people more aware of what it takes for pastors to defend the Christian faith beyond preaching on Sundays.”

and

“Barry said his deputies (two who were off duty and unpaid and two who were on duty and paid) participated as an act of good will to help the faith community in its efforts.”

MEANWHILE

2b. Headline: U.S. IMMIGRATION SERVICES DENIES APPLICANT BASED ON SECULAR BELIEFS

Key Quote: “A California resident applying for U.S. citizenship has had her application denied because immigration officials did not accept as valid a conscientious objector, declaration to “bear arms” in defense of the U.S. because it is secular in nature.”

So, pastors are joining up with local police to stage fake arrests as part of a marketing campaign for their upcoming stage show, while a person is being denied citizenship because of her secular beliefs. It really is hard to be a Christian in America.

    Michelle Bachmann never ceases to amaze me with her ignorance, intolerance and paranoia. It’s almost like she’s *trying* to be the stereotypical right-wing fundamentalist that turns ordinary people off from Christianity. Walt Disney himself could not have done a better job creating this character.
