Michele Bachmann and the end times.

Bachmann recently claimed that the Iran nuclear deal was a sign of the end times.

“These are not fearful times, these are the most exciting days in history,” she insisted. “Talk about what you see in the newspaper. We can talk about God’s time clock and the fact that Jesus Christ’s return is imminent. Is there anything more important to talk about?”

“We need to be so on fire right now about the things of Christ and the things of God, that needs to occupy our time and our thoughts virtually from morning to night because we have very little time — in my opinion — left before the second return of Christ. That’s good news!” the former congresswoman added. “The world is embracing degeneracy, but what that also tells us as we look at what the world is doing that they’re going according to God’s time clock. Pastors, preach it from the pulpit!”

Notice how she seem to be chomping at the bit for the world to end and billions of people to die/be sent to hell? I guess all those people are degenerates so their lives don’t matter right? This is why people with beliefs like hers have no business running the country. They simply can’t be trusted to make decisions for the benefit of our society when they are secretly, or perhaps not so secretly, wanting to bring about the end times.

The thing that really baffles me about all this end times talk is how short their memories seem to be. I was a fundamentalist back in the mid to late 90’s and I remember listening to people like Bachmann saying the exact same things about the Clinton presidency. Even then I thought all the end times stuff was a bit goofy, after all even by Christian standards Jesus said no one would know the date of his return.

Yet, since then I’ve watched dozens of end of the world predictions by fundamentalist Christians, along with other groups like the 2012 crowd, and, obviously, none of them have come to pass…but yeah I’m sure HER end of the world prediction will come true. Though we know from experience that no matter how ridiculously false her predictions turn out to be it won’t cost her one iota of respectability among the majority of her peers. Most will simply swallow whatever prediction she makes next year while ignoring or forgetting the previous false predictions.
