Reporters just cannot get enough of Republican congresswoman Michele Bachmann, who has the nerve not only to run for president (yes, of the country) but to take a virulently anti-gay stance while being married to this man. Yesterday, just as newsstands were being filled with the now-famous "crazy eyes"Newsweek cover and the latest issue of The New Yorker, which provides an in-depth profile of the presidential hopeful, Bachmann attended a church service in Iowa that featured a condemnation of homosexuality as "immoral" and "unnatural."
The Bachmanns attended Point of Grace Church near Des Moines, led by Pastor Jeff Mullen. After Bachmann stood up and read from her own personal bible, Mullen preached a sermon drawing on a passage from the book of Romans. "God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness," Mullen read, before launching his sermon on homosexuality that is "a bedrock, just a Biblical truth we've taught over the years," he told MSNBC.
Mullen's sermon concluded with -- you guessed it -- a video testimonial from a man named Adam Hood whom God has supposedly cured of his homosexuality. "I am so happy God has given me natural affection for a woman," said Hood, whose wife is nine months pregnant. He added: "We need to have compassion for people that are bound by that sin. And it is a sin. Call a spade a spade."
He's talking about that look on Michele's face, right? We were going to let her off easy and just say it was a crime, but Hood's right: a sin is a sin.
