“It’s no secret that our nation may very well be experiencing the hand of judgment. It is no secret that we all are concerned that our nation may be in a time of decline. Our nation has seen judgment not once, but twice, on September 11. And, that’s why we’re going to have 911 pray on that day. Is there anything better that we could do on that day rather than to humble ourselves and to pray to an Almighty God?”
– Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, in a prayer service, stating that the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the ambush of the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 were both signs from God.
Once again, a right-wing extremist has belittled the tragedy of terrorism by dismissing it as “God’s judgment.” This reminds me of the time when that other redneck asshole, Jerry Falwell, claimed the September 11, 2001 attacks were the results of God’s judgment on America because of abortion, homosexuality and other so-called deviancies. Falwell eventually apologized for the comment, and I wonder how long it’ll take before Bachmann realizes her head is still not screwed on right.
