Someone should have taken a moment to contemplate a world where someone this mentally ill could command so much media attention for her remarks:
Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) calls in an interview for converting as many people as possible to Christianity because Jesus is “coming soon.”
The 2012 Republican presidential candidate made the comments in a radio interview last week with Tony Perkins, president of the conservative Family Research Council, after both Bachmann and Perkins went on a tour of Israel. The website Right Wing Watch posted audio of the interview.
“We recognize the shortness of the hour,” Bachmann says. “And that’s why we as a remnant want to be faithful in these days and do what it is that the Holy Spirit is speaking to each one of us, to be faithful in the Kingdom and to help bring in as many as we can — even among the Jews — share Jesus Christ with everyone that we possibly can because, again, he’s coming soon.”
Bachmann also says that “the prophets longed to see the days that you and I live in.”
Her takeaway from the trip, she says, is “that the Jewish state of Israel truly is a miracle of the hand of God.”
This is sad and delusional behavior. It should not be taken seriously nor should it be considered anything other than someone's cry for help. Who is helping former Representative Bachmann? What happened to her to leave her in such a state of mental illness?
We're in butterfly net territory here. As in, two men are going to have to chase her with a butterfly net and help her to the psychiatric ward.
