What exactly are Michele Bachmann's beliefs and upon what are those beliefs
According to Michele Bachmann, her beliefs are founded on the Bible,
which she claims to uphold above
fallible human beliefs and understanding (see
was the New Testament written? and
manuscripts). During her September 2003 interview
at the KKMS radio station, Michele Bachmann said:
"I look at the Scripture and I read it and I take it
for what it is. I give more credence in the Scripture as being kind of a
timeless word of God to mankind, and I take it for what it is."
When human 'wisdom' contradicts the Bible,
Michele Bachmann tends to side with her beliefs based on the Word of God.
Regarding the origin of life,
for example, she told KKMS in 2003, "Evolution is a theory that has never been proven
one way or the other." (Actually, it is a theory that continues to be disproven by
new discoveries - see Charles Darwin facts).
"We need to have profound compassion for people who are dealing with the very
real issue of sexual dysfunction in their life and sexual identity disorders."
On March 20, 2004, the state Senator Michele Bachmann recounted to KKMS:
"Two homosexuals that were holding up my picture
this week at the [state] Capitol and shouting that I want to hate people, I
walked up to them and said, 'I don’t hate you. I love you and the Savior who
created you. He loves you, too, can I tell you why? (see
Justice of God)'"
