So I had a little extra free time at work today and decided to take a look at Michele Bachmann’s website and discovered in her biography section that she is a member of Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church of Stillwater which is associated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. So I decided to check out the WELS website and discovered a fun little tool on there, the Q & A section.
Here are some of the best parts of what the church that Michele Bachmann belongs to believes in:
“From my personal reading I believe Islam (reflecting statements in the Quran and historical developments of a fairly consistent ideology) has never been a tolerant religion and actively seeks peace only if it does so for its own purposes--eventually to dominate the world religiously and culturally.” (link)
“Although Muhammad was an antichrist and Islam is anti-Christian, we do not identify Muhammad with the Antichrist because he does not fit the description in 2 Thessalonains 2:1-2.” (link)
“. . . we accept that the Pope is the Antichrist . . . because among all the antichristian manifestations in the history of the world and the Church that lie behind us in the past there is none that fits the description given in 2 Thess. 2 better than the Papacy.” (link)
So there you go, basically according to the church that Michele Bachmann proclaims to be a member of (1) Muslims are trying to dominate the world religiously and culturally, (2) all Muslims are going to hell, (3) Muhammad was an antichrist but he wasn’t THE antichrist, and (4) the coveted spot of THE antichrist is reserved for the Pope.
Oh and her church doesn't believe in any form of evolution (link, sec. 2 #7) either.
