Michele Bachmann: God is Hate

While in Florida the last week in August 2011, beginning her tour on Friday the 26th, at a sub shop in Jacksonville Beach that had a sign in the window on which these words were written: Bible thumpin’, gun totin’ capitalist pig owns this joint, Michele Bachmann exposed further her fanatical fundamentalism.  She is consistent in keeping with the rabid religious rightist and extremist groups like the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS; a hate group that she belonged to in Minnesota), the Roman Catholic and Latter Day Saints (Mormon) churches and the Pentecostal, Adventist, and Jehovah Witness cults that pour garbage on the minds of others when she announced that her god is one of wrath, hatred, spite, and cruelty (cp. Psalm 6:1, 7:11; and 2nd Corinthians 5:11).  Adam C. Smith, Political Editor of the Tampa Bay Times (Florida) noted on August 29, 2011, that Bachmann pontificated as if a seer or oracle:

I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’ Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we’ve got to rein in the spending.”

after Hurricane Irene caused widespread destruction and multiple deaths along the Atlantic seaboard, reaching into Vermont and dashing through New York City.  In this regard  Bachmann matches identically the raw rhetoric of other hate mongers grooming home-grown USA Christian terrorists, such as former televangelist and financial backer to some of the world’s worst dictators and

thieves (such as Charles Taylor of Liberia), Pat Robertsonof Virginia (Bachmann graduated from his Regent “university” with a degree in law) who also cited the vile and vengeful demon he worships as having destroyed Haiti,

Haiti survivor whom Robertson claims his god has damned

and the crack in the Washington Monument in DC is a sign from his demigod that the evil forces of heaven are prepared to destroy the USA and a foretelling of an Apocalypse where the monstrous Jesus (carrying a sword according to Matthew 10:34: μη νομισητε οτι ηλθον βαλειν ειρηνην επι την γην ουκ ηλθον βαλειν ειρηνην αλλα μαχαιραν) is about to return and begin the slaughter of all who do not confess his name, turning against spouse, children, parents and others who do not convert to his evangelical epiphany of mass destruction in the name of faith (Matthew 10:35). 

As the Tampa Bay Times noted (loc. cit.), “retiree Philip Staples said he’s already sold on Bachmann. “She’s got the fire in the belly…” a term or phrase originally attributed to Sarah Palin for the pagan god Moloch (Semitic מלך m-l-k, a Semitic root meaning “king” as all “gods” were kings in the same manner as when a Cesar of Rome (King of Rome) he was acclaimed a god; read: Weinfield, M. “The Worship of Molech and of the Queen of Heaven [a term from the ancient Canaanite religion for the goddess Ashtoreth being a Sidonian deity, being taken from the far older Egyptian term for the goddesses in particular Anat, Isis, and Innana (who was one of the early gods/goddesses who collectively were known as Allah), that is inserted into the plagiarized work known as the Apocalypse or Revelation (12:1-3) whom Roman Catholics and Greek Orthodox claim is Mary the mother of Jesus, and even early Protestantism and leading reformers such as Martin Bucer (1491-1551), Johannes Brenz (1499-1570) and Ethelbert William Bullinger (1837-1913) accept Mary’s existence in heaven as self-evident as a matter of faith, with even Martin Luther writing in 1522 that Mary was in the heavens.  Cf.: Marienlexikon / herausgegeben im Auftrag des Institutum Marianum Regensburg e.V. von Remigius Bäumer und Leo Scheffczyk; St. Ottilien : EOS, c1988-c1994 (6 vols.) cf. Bäumer 200, 673] and its Background,” Ugarit-For-schungen. 4 (1972), p. 133-154) of ancient Phoenicia, meaning a warrior who will kill for the deity, and sacrifice the heart to a wrathful god (Isaiah 1:11, 13), who is challenged by unworthy gods or mortals who would be gods and create machines or tools in rival of god, such as the agricultural gods of the ancient Ammonites, Hebrews (מלך the ך is king, as mentioned in 1 Kings 11:7: אָז יִבְנֶה שְׁלֹמֹה בָּמָה לִכְמֹושׁ שִׁקֻּץ מֹואָב בָּהָר אֲשֶׁר עַל־פְּנֵי יְרוּשָׁלִָם וּלְמֹלֶךְ שִׁקֻּץ בְּנֵי עַמֹּון [the hill outside of Jerusalem was sacred to the ancient Canaanites for their worship of Asherah (Venus)]; cp. Leviticus 20:2 that is a reference to conversion–not sacrifice), Canaanites, and others who invented hoes, axes, and other tools and glorified “fire in the belly” like the Imbolc.  The god of Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry and others seeking political office today to carry out the dictates of the Tea Party and the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) seek to keep Americans ignorant.  Bachmann and other Tea Party/Republican candidate creep out against science (especially evolution) and advances in technology while denying human genetic differences and demanding that all people live like they live.

What Bachmann and Robertson forget is that the very Bible they quote to garble out predictions of perdition is forbidden in that same Bible (Matthew 24:36).  While Bachmann claims her comment on Hurricane Irene was a joke, the god of the Bible forbids such jokes (Deuteronomy 5:11:  לֹא תִשָּׂא אֶת־שֵׁם־יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ לַשָּׁוְא כִּי לֹא יְנַקֶּה יְהוָה אֵת אֲשֶׁר־יִשָּׂא אֶת־שְׁמֹו לַשָּׁוְא׃ ס).

    These people leave me breathless – and NOT in a good way. Even more puzzling – why do people follow them? Has thinking for oneself gone out of fashion again, like in the fifties?
    It’s disturbing to see the rise in hate out there, but I LOVE the way you refute the tide of fantasies, Art!

    Reading Gods intentions by wathing extreme weather conditions is like reading the entrails of a chicken… why doesnt God just speak directly to man/woman kind (as he does at times in the Bible)??? Why be so ambiguous (and murderous)?? Not a very inteligent way to comunicate a message.
    Also if you do belevie that God is passing judgment on America (and the world) through, errr, “the weather”, then you must agree that Britian is the most holy place in the world!!… as we havent suffered an earthquake, tornado, tsunami or any form of extreme weather conditions sine, well, FOREVER!!! (or at least the Ice Age) though it does rain quite a lot.

    • No where have I ever stated nor implied that any god(s) or goddess(es) were wrathing extreme weather conditions on mortalkind, nor on this planet or any other planet that resulted when matter and antimatter smashed together in the Big Bang. The god(s)/goddess(es) of human invention are evil because their creators saw evil as a way of controlling others: by creating nonsense of serene spiritual laws that denied people the right of choice and being, and these deities in ancient Jewish myths known as gods (elohim is a plural noun, the singular is el) were the most vile of creatures: creating slaves from mud, forcing them out of their home in a “garden” (actually the refuge of war lords) and into inhospitable territory where crop farmers warred with cattlemen (cattle meaning, cows, sheep, and other animals) while old men tilled fields to grow grapes so that they could fall into a drunk stupor and then yell against grandsons who were not even among those attending the old fart.

      Temperature changes are the result of gravitational pull between the moon and earth and other planets, and the opening of an ozone hole because of the arrogance of mortals. Mortalkind has always been its own worst enemy: killing off species either because of fear out of lack of knowledge, or greed in quest of temporary wealth, as with the whalers especially of Japan–or sport (if the assassination of a species can be so called). Thereby the USA is a leading source of criminals acting against nature: extinguishing the species of carrier pigeons, shooting randomly at bears, coyotes, and other species, while Canadian have the audacity to club seals to death. I always rejoice when I read an account where a bear turned on a fool as happened fortunately in Norway, or a cougar claws to death some mortal who thinks she or he needs a trophy, or best of all the crocodiles and other similar creatures to move swiftly in the water to attack those who would prey on them. In Spain I always cheer the bull who is beset withs pears and lances and other offenses by those who hide behind capes and clowns to wrest life out of animals.

      A member of PETA I am not. I enjoy the taste of fish and fowl and pork–just not cattle. I do not sacrifice any animal to any god, as I am not the former governor of Alaska, nor do I shoot of a gun to prove I have a penis as does the governor of Texas to show the state the man that he is not. Yet these people, if it possible to consider them homo-sapiens, are far more savage than any hyena and bray as badly.
