Via The Wonk Room, we learn that Michele Bachmann—who is now being touted as a Republican Presidential candiate in 2012—was told by God to introduce a bill in the Minnesota legislature to make marriage legal only between a man and a woman. After hearing in 2003 that Massachusetts courts had allowed same-sex marriage, a distraught Bachmann asked her Lord for advice. God answered her as she went for a walk. She recounts that fateful stroll to a radio station:
Part of her answer:
BACHMANN: When that happened, I heard the news on my local Christian radio station in Minneapolis, St. Paul and I was devastated. And I took a walk and I just went to prayer and I said Lord, what would you have me do in the Minnesota state senate? And just through prayer I knew that I was to introduce the marriage amendment in Minnesota.
Her amendment failed. Clearly God isn’t omnipotent.
But I pray to mine: O Ceiling Cat, please keep us from having this woman as our President.
