Bachmann's 'Reverend Wright' Moment?

Much ado is being made over Michelle Bachmann’s church: she was a mem­ber of the Wis­con­sin Evan­gel­i­cal Lutheran Synod (WELS), which stated that:

Since Scrip­ture teaches that the Antichrist would be revealed and gives the marks by which the Antichrist is to be rec­og­nized, and since this prophecy has been clearly ful­filled in the his­tory and devel­op­ment of the Roman Papacy, it is Scrip­ture which reveals that the Papacy is the Antichrist.

Bach­mann has not attended ser­vices at the Salem Lutheran Church in over two years. (Salem Lutheran is a part of WELS.)  Yet, all sorts of polit­i­cal hay is being made out of this rev­e­la­tion.

As a mat­ter of com­mon sense, belong­ing to a lovely local church, with a kind pas­tor and a great group of con­gre­gants, that is affil­i­ated some­where out there with a group that writes such non­sense is hardly the same thing as lis­ten­ing to “G– d— Amer­ica” for twenty years. Yet, this is being spun as a Rev­erend Wright issue, as if every­thing WELS had ever writ­ten is imputed to Bach­mann because she belonged to a local church that was a part of it.

More­over, what really gets to me is that those who are mak­ing the biggest fuss over this, and who think that Con­gress­woman Bach­mann is an anti-​Papist, really hate Catholics. Let’s take a look at the crit­ics, shall we? The LA Times — hardly the bas­tion of Catholi­cism. New York mag­a­zine? Those lovers of the papacy — Slate, Think Progress, WaPo? This leads me to won­der why they care if Bach­mann is anti-​Catholic; accord­ing to their views, being Catholic ranks right up there with being a slave-​owner or a child molester.

As Da TechGuy often points out, the media will tell us who they are afraid of. This is not done out of any par­tic­u­lar love of Catholics or Pope Bene­dict, although it may be an attempt to court the Catholic vote; it is done to try to destroy Michelle Bachmann.

Much ado is being made over Michelle Bachmann’s church: she was a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS), which stated that:

Since Scripture teaches that the Antichrist would be revealed and gives the marks by which the Antichrist is to be recognized, and since this prophecy has been clearly fulfilled in the history and development of the Roman Papacy, it is Scripture which reveals that the Papacy is the Antichrist.

Bachmann has not attended services at the Salem Lutheran Church in over two years.  (Salem Lutheran is a part of WELS.)  Yet, all sorts of political hay is being made out of this revelation.

As a matter of common sense, belonging to a lovely local church, with a kind pastor and a great group of congregants, that is affiliated somewhere out there with a group that writes such nonsense is hardly the same thing as listening to “G– d— America” for twenty years.  Yet, this is being spun as a Reverend Wright issue, as if everything WELS had ever written is imputed to Bachmann because she belonged to a local church that was a part of it.

Moreover, what really gets to me is that those who are making the biggest fuss over this, and who think that Congresswoman Bachmann is an anti-Papist, really hate Catholics.  Let’s take a look at the critics, shall we?  The LA Times – hardly the bastion of Catholicism.  New York magazine?  Those lovers of the papacy – Slate, Think Progress, WaPo?  This leads me to wonder why they care if Bachmann is anti-Catholic; according to their views, being Catholic ranks right up there with being a slave-owner or a child molester.

As Da TechGuy often points out, the media will tell us who they are afraid of.  This is not done out of any particular love of Catholics or Pope Benedict, although it may be an attempt to court the Catholic vote; it is done to try to destroy Michelle Bachmann.
