The Minnesota Legislature erupted in controversy today following the opening prayer this morning by Bradlee Dean, the Axl Rose-lookalike homophobic minister.
The boneheaded decision to invite Dean to the party has backfired on Republicans, who now face a groundswell of opposition against their anti-gay marriage bill.
But Dean didn't just come out of nowhere. He's been affiliated with local Republicans a long time. Including Michele Bachmann, who offered up this bizarre, acid trip of a prayer to his anti-gay ministry, "You Can Run But You Cannot Hide."
She then goes on to talk about a "fire of the gospel" sweeping Minnesota and turning it into a "sweet-smelling incense of praise and sacrifice."
Yeah, it's that crazy.
