Somebody Say Oh Lord!

Michele Bachmann heads an all-star cast of GOP Christian flat-earthers in the Sixth District

"This is not about hating homosexuals. I love homosexuals," Bachmann concluded. "But should we allow them to teach sinful ways [to] our children?"

Markell responded: "We need to pray for Michele. Pray for Michele, please."

Bachmann says she plans to bring up the gay marriage issue again this session. But mostly, she's eager spout conservative rhetoric on what she plans to do in Congress: look at privatizing Social Security, cutting taxes, and funding homeland security.

Aside from Knoblauch, the other GOP names being bandied about as Sixth Congressional District candidates are Cheri Pierson Yecke, the former education commissioner whose appointment was ultimately rejected by the legislature, and Secretary of State Mary Kiffmeyer. Both of those candidates have expressed political and religious beliefs similar to Bachmann's.
