Michele Bachmann Religion

Michele Bachmann - Religion

Michele Bachmann ReligionWe turn now to Michele Bachmann's own religion, as well as her stance on others' religions.

Raised a Lutheran, Michele Bachmann attended Salem Lutheran Church in her hometown of Stillwater, Minnesota from the 1990s until 2009. Today, Michele Bachmann attends Eagle Brook Church, a non-denominational mega-church located in Centerville, about 15 miles from her hometown.

Unlike some of the other Presidential Candidates, who have a propensity to mention their religion primarily during election campaigns, Michele Bachmann has been living out her Christian faith steadily since her conversion at 16 years of age.

For example, she has ministered outside abortion clinics, dissuading women from murdering their unborn children, and participated in protests against government funding for hospitals that perform abortions (see Abortion is Murder).

She and her husband founded, own and operate a Christian counseling center. Over a period of 6 years, the Bachmanns also took in to their home and cared for 23 at-risk teenaged girls as foster children alongside their five biological children.

When the state of Minnesota forbade their foster children from being placed in Christian schools, she led a grassroots initiative to found a K-12 charter school in her hometown that taught the Christian worldview.

And when her state law forced her to resign from the board of that charter school and remove Christian content from its curriculum to maintain its charter, she entered politics to change the laws.
