We speak with a former evangelical Christian, Frank Schaeffer, whose father’s writings and work played a key role in the religious development of Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann. Frank Schaeffer recently wrote an article titled "Michele Bachmann Was Inspired by My Dad and His Christian Reconstructionist Friends — Here’s Why That’s Terrifying." Schaeffer’s father was Francis Schaeffer, one of the nation’s most influential evangelical Christian theologians and philosophers in the 1970s and 1980s. In a recent profile in The New Yorker magazine, Bachmann reveals she entered politics after watching Francis Schaeffer’s film, "How Should We Then Live?" The film was directed by his son, Frank, our guest today. "[Bachmann] doesn’t just come from the far right of evangelical politics. She comes from a fringe even of the fringe, which is the Reconstructionist, Dominionist movement," Schaeffer says. “The religious right that I was part of is fundamentally anti-American. They hate this country. They wrap themselves in the flag, but they hate America as it is."
I thought for five seconds about voting for her... I will NEVER vote for a communist democrat again but it looks like unless the Libertarians get a good one in there I'll only vote for Ron Paul.
Freedom means allowing woman and LGBT's to be free too, nit just white men.
Bachmann Staffer Formerly Charged with Terrorism in Uganda
New reports have surfaced that a staffer responsible for presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann’s faith-based organizing was once charged with terrorism in Uganda. According to the Atlantic Magazine, Peter Waldron was arrested in Africa in February of 2006 for allegedly possessing a number of assault rifles and ammunition just days before Uganda’s first multiparty elections in 20 years. Waldron spent 37 days in a prison outside Kampala before his charges were dropped. A Ugandan newspaper accused Waldron of collaborating with Congolese rebels to capture the leader of a Ugandan guerrilla group. According to the paper, the International Criminal Court placed a $1.7 million bounty on his head.
