• It’s official. We’re in the “end times.”

     

    Oh, how I feared the “end times” as I was growing up. Sadly, I’ve lived in these “end time” since… as long as I can remember. Politicians argue? It’s the end times. Milk prices rise? End times. Quirky weather? You guessed it: end times.

    It’s one thing to have church officials singing that tune, but when people in power start in, it’s time to get a tad concerned. Case in point: Michelle Bachmann.

    Minnesota Congresswoman and firebrand head of the Congressional Whackadoodle Caucus went on the radio this weekend to talk about, I don’t know, what she normally talks about I guess? Word barf that reads like Tea Party Magnetic poetry in a blender? But what she ended up talking about — in an excited, unsettlingly ecstatic tone, might I add — was Jesus, the end times, and how Obama’s (fact check: nonexistent) partnership with al Qaeda means that soon the Book of Revelations will happen. It was spectacular.

    Whackadoodle? What an awesome word. I’ll have to make a point to use it today. Let’s see what Jezebel is talking about here, eh? They’ve taken the time to transcribe part of the interview.

    This happened and as of today the United States is willingly, knowingly, intentionally sending arms to terrorists, now what this says to me, I’m a believer in Jesus Christ, as I look at the End Times scripture, this says to me that the leaf is on the fig tree and we are to understand the signs of the times, which is your ministry, we are to understand where we are in God’s end times history.

    This isn’t to cause us fear. This is to cause us — I believe as believers in Jesus Christ — to grow up and mature in our faith and embrace. The prophets said they longed to look for this time. The prophets longed to look into the future, to see these days of His coming, and herald His coming. […]

    Rather than seeing this as a negative, we need to rejoice, Maranatha Come Lord Jesus, His day is at hand,” Bachmann continued. “When we see up is down and right is called wrong, when this is happening, we were told this; these days would be as the days of Noah.

    You can check out the whole interview after the jump. Personally, I’m not sure if I should laugh or cry as I listen.

      1. I agree! It’s surreal, her district is directly north of here. Whenever we head to our Freethinker meeting, if it’s an election year, we pass a gazillion Bachmann signs. I’ll never understand it. 🙁

      1. I hate to imagine how close we’ve come to having someone like her in the White House. You’d think that reason would keep the candidates more main stream, but that thought doesn’t exactly hold true anymore. Ack. Thanks for commenting. 🙂
