Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), who was a republican presidential candidate just a few short years ago (because that isn’t crazy or anything) took to the radio waves to remind everyone of the imminent coming of Jesus Christ.
Bachman said a radio interview with Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council:
We recognize the shortness of the hour. And, that’s why we as a remnant want to be faithful in these days and do what it is that the Holy Spirit is speaking to each one of us, to be faithful in the Kingdom and to help bring in as many as we can — even among the Jews — share Jesus Christ with everyone that we possibly can because, again, he’s coming soon.
Because that totally sounds like religious freedom, right? When someone implies it’s their “duty” to “bring in as many as we can – even among the Jews” to Jesus Christ – therein lies a huge problem. People of other faiths – or of no faith – do not wish to be led to Jesus.
Newsflash Michele, there is no shortage of Jesus PR – most people know about him – no great gathering needed.
Why can’t Michele and her ilk just worship as they wish (you know, practice their own personal religious freedom) and allow the rest of us the same respect? I don’t care of she, or anyone else, wishes to spend their entire lives on their knees praying to God, Jesus, Mary or Joseph – they are completely free to do so. Hell, I’m happy for them if they have found something they are so comfortable and sure about spiritually. That’s wonderful – for them! Personal freedom is a beautiful thing.
Just allow people of other faiths or non-faiths, the same freedom to do as we wish as well – without this whole “convert them now!” drive.
Thanks but no thanks.
