Who Knew...

...God was such a booster of Minnesotan Republican Michele Bachmann (see previous posts)? Here are some of her remarks at the Living Word Christian Center, a large suburban chuch in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, via the Minnesota Monitor blog:
God then called me to run for the United States Congress, and I thought “What in the world will that be for?” and my husband said “You need to do this,” and I wasn’t so sure, and we took 3 days and we fasted and we prayed and we said, “Lord. Is this what you want? Is this your will?” and after long about the afternoon of day two, he made that calling sure. [...] You are now looking at a fool for Christ. This is a fool for Christ. And in the midst of him making this calling sure, what has occurred now in this particular race is that this Congressional seat out of 435 in the country has become… it has been one of the top five races in the country, and in the last week this has become one of the top three races in the country, and you may have seen how God has in his own will, and his own plan, has focused like a laser beam after this scandal that came up about a week or so ago.
One problem with this lil' church event -- it might take away Living Word Christian Center's non-profit status:
A personal endorsement from the pastor of the church, as well as Bachmann's own statements in her speech, appear to have violated regulations pertaining to partisan politicking by churches.
