Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, is notorious for picketing funerals of military personnel killed in action, like Carrie French, claiming that those deaths are "Lord is punishing this evil nation for abandoning all moral imperatives that are worth a dime."
Kyle Mantyla at Right Wing Watch reports in Bachmann: 9/11 and Benghazi Were God's Judgment:
Among the speakers was Rep. Michele Bachmann...
And what did she have to say? Check it out:
Bachmann: It’s no secret that our nation may very well be experiencing the hand of judgment. It’s no secret that we all are concerned that our nation may be in a time of decline. If that is in fact so, what is the answer? The answer is what we are doing here today: humbling ourselves before an almighty God, crying out to an almighty God, saying not of ourselves but you, would you save us oh God? We repent of our sins, we turn away from them, we seek you, we seek your ways. That’s something that we’re doing today, that we did on the National Day of Prayer, it’s something that we have chosen to do as well on another landmark day later this year on September 11. Our nation has seen judgment not once but twice on September 11. That’s why we’re going to have ‘9/11 Pray’ on that day. Is there anything better that we can do on that day rather than to humble ourselves and to pray to an almighty God?
Lovely. Perhaps Minnesotans need a rhetorical Patriot Guard to shield us from this sort of nonsense?
