    Bachmann, Family Leave Minn. Church Congregation

    Bachmann, Family Leave Minn. Church Congregation CBS Minnesota

    A pastor at the church had previously told The Associated Press the Bachmanns stopped attending regularly years ago.
    Not sure what to say about this. Makes you wonder about her commitment to God, though.

    The conservative denomination adheres to strict doctrine and excludes women from church leadership roles. A pastor at the church had previously told The Associated Press the Bachmanns stopped attending regularly years ago.
    Hmm interesting....Maybe she will become a Unitarian.

    No it doesn't. Going to church has less to do with a commitment of God.

    This. I don't care about this. Church attendance has no bearing on one's religious beliefs, or commitment.

    While I think going to church is a good thing, I don't think it directly correlates to committment to God.

    Some people who sit in a church pew every Sunday morning are probably going to make a meteor crater in the floor of Hell when they die... Westboro and Jeremiah Wright come to mind as possible candidates...

    Commitment to God was a bad choice of words. Commitment to religion, on the other hand....

    I don't know, it just makes you wonder when the one candidate who likes to talk about how "Christian" she is doesn't even go to church. Is it a show? What is she really committed to other than herself? And if it is herself, what makes her better than any of the other candidates?

    People wallowing in several thousand year old middle eastern mythologies are utterly unsuited for any position of power. It tells me their abilities to think logically is non-existent, it tells me they do not care about anyone or anything outside their cult. It tells me they are employing mental acrobatics to make reality work with their mythology and that scare the living daylight out of me!

    And we see the result clearly in the right wing candidates in USA, all wallowing in this mythology and as a result, global climate change is called a myth, evolution is called a myth! It absolutely baffles me to the core how intellectually challenged these people are!

    I wouldn't know, I don't have a very high opinion of Bachman to start with. And while I am a Christian, and a conservative, I admit that candidates who make what I consider an excessive showing of their religiousity make me wonder "if milady doth protest too much." Of course, I'm pretty jaded, the only time I think politicians lie is when their lips are moving. That goes for Left and Right....
