Bradlee Dean's church spotted in Walmart parking lot

Bradlee Dean wants very badly to be taken seriously. He begged Republican lawmakers to let him give the Legislature's opening prayer, then turned around and attacked them once the appearance blew up in the GOP's face.

But since even that negative attention served to raise Dean's profile even higher, it's worth remembering who Bradlee Dean actually is: the sort of guy who asks you for money in the Walmart parking lot.

OK, so it wasn't Dean himself manning the table in front of the Hutchinson Walmart yesterday afternoon; it was one of his young acolytes.

This is the real face of Bradlee Dean's ministry: the lonely picture of a kid trying to drum up donations at the strip-mall on a Monday afternoon.

When Sally Jo Sorensen of Bluestem Prairie stumbled across the fund-raising table for Dean's You Can Run But You Can't Hide International ministry yesterday on her way to buy some cat litter, she could practically see the tumbleweeds rolling past.

It hardly looked like the kind of operation that should be taken seriously by anyone, let alone Republicans in the state legislature who followed Dean's lead and voted to change Minnesota's Constitution.

It turns out that you can hide from Bradlee Dean, provided you are willing to shop at Target.

Just spotted @ Hudson WI Walmart July 12th 2011.  I called the corporate office & spoke to an assistant manager @ that store today.

Please call the manager of the Hudson WI store @ 715-386-1101!

I know Bradlee and the people in his ministry, and they're all OK. I don't agree with everything they say, (such as Martin Luther King and JFK beings good guys) but I defend their right to do what they do. I don't worry about what other people say or do. The best way to solve the problems in the world is to first look in the mirror, that's where they all begin. We are all sinners, but the good news is that God sent His son Jesus to take the penalty of our sins upon himself so that we could be saved. If you are sad, or angry, or depressed, it is a problem within  yourself, it is a sickness of the soul. When you change your sinful ways and your bad habits, then God will walk with you and be your guide and comforter every step of the way. However, God can't help you unless you first help yourself. Homosexuality is a behavior, it is a deadly lifestyle, the average homosexual male has a much shorter lifespan than the average heterosexual male. Being overweight and drinking can also kill you. I used to drink heavily and was way overweight, but I changed my behavior and I feel much more at peace and much more closer to God. Life is beautiful! Bradlee just wants sinners of all kinds to change their behavior so they don't die an early death, so they can have a happy and healthy life. Of course, no amount of legislation can change people's behavior. For example, marijuana and cocaine are illegal (and sinful) but people still do it anyway. When I decided to change my own behavior, it wasn't because someone told me to or made me do it, but because I knew it was wrong and I had a conscience about it. What people like Bradlee and myself seek is a government based on Christian principles, as our founders intended, but not a religious theocracy (such as you find in many Muslim countries) Good government allows people to do whatever they want to do (even if it is sinful) as long as they do no harm to someone else. Good government will only intervene when someone commits a crime against someone else. Government's role is to deal with crime, the church's role is to deal with sin. So if you want to smoke, drink, overeat, and engagae in dangerous sexual practices (as long as you don't rape anyone, that's a crime) then knock yourself out. But when you ruin your health doing so, don't expect the taxpayer to pick up the tab for your healthcare either! Each of us has a built-in moral compass, we all know right from wrong, so when we stand before God on judgment day, we will have no excuse. Let each of us govern ourselves with the dictates of our own conscience.

A real nut job that one!  Him & his imaginary friend God.  So God makes homo's & then sets them up with an appointment to see Marcus Bauchman to get fixed.  Very funny.

"the sort of guy who asks you for money in the Walmart parking lot."Ya, just like the Salvation Army's "Red Kettle" campaigns right?

And - "It turns out that you can hide from Bradlee Dean, provided you are willing to shop at Target."

Really?According to CP, Target would set up a kiosk for Mr. Dean inside the entry way being CP commonly portrays Target as bigots and homophobes.

Who knew that an effete East Coast Raelian fop like Nick Pinko could so perfectly describe the landscape of Hutchinson's Walmart? What's up with that? Astral projection?

Looks like the Raelian rumor took off!  Now I know what it feels like to work for Roger Ailes!
