Michele Bachmann prays for Bradlee Dean's homophobic ministry [AUDIO]

Michele Bachmann and Bradlee Dean
The Minnesota Legislature erupted in controversy today following the opening prayer this morning by Bradlee Dean, the Axl Rose-lookalike homophobic minister.

The boneheaded decision to invite Dean to the party has backfired on Republicans, who now face a groundswell of opposition against their anti-gay marriage bill.

But Dean didn't just come out of nowhere. He's been affiliated with local Republicans a long time. Including Michele Bachmann, who offered up this bizarre, acid trip of a prayer to his anti-gay ministry, "You Can Run But You Cannot Hide."

Vampire author Anne Rice quits church because of Bradlee Dean

"This ministry, 'You Can Run But You Cannot Hide,' they are not sidetracked, they're on course," Bachmann intones. "They're way on course. Because they get it. They get what this is all about."

Bradlee Dean addressed the legislature this morning. Now they won't let him show his face.
She then goes on to talk about a "fire of the gospel" sweeping Minnesota and turning it into a "sweet-smelling incense of praise and sacrifice."

Yeah, it's that crazy.

You obviously did not read what he said.  It is amazing how what one says is twisted and turned to meet to objective goal of ones desire and that is demonize Republicans and Christians alike.  Dean is a Christian and his message about homosexuality is to hate the sin but love the sinner and guess what we all are sinners.  Dean knows this as a Christian.   We would not be showing absolute love for one another if with kindless we can lead someone away from sin. This is what he meant.  Homosexuality is a sin as it clearly says in the bible. What I say to those who oppose it, is to take it up with God. We know who has ultimate authoritiy and besides who are we to raise our punny fist at God as if we are more godly.

Some Biblical Principles you might find interesting, Bradley.  I dare you to preach these Biblical "truths" you insignificant, uneducated coward.Marriage consists of one man and one or more women (Gen 4:19, 4:23, 26:34, 28:9, 29:26-30, 30:26, 31:17, 32:22, 36:2, 36:10, 37:2, Ex. 21:10, Judges 8:30, 1 Sam 1:2, 25:43, 27:3, 30:5, 30:18, 2 Sam 2:2, 3:2-5, 1 Chron 3:1-3, 4:5, 8:8, 14:3, 2 Chron 11:21, 13:21, 24:3). Nothing prevents a man from taking on concubines in addition to the wife or wives he may already have (Gen 25:6, Judges 8:31, 2 Sam 5:13, 1 Kings 11:3, 1 Chron 3:9, 2 Chron 11:21, Dan 5:2-3). A man might chose any woman he wants for his wife (Gen 6:2, Deut 21:11), provided only that she is not already another man’s wife (Lev 18:14-16, Deut. 22:30) or his [half-]sister (Lev 18:11, 20:17), nor the mother (Lev 20:14) or the sister (Lev 18:18) of a woman who is already his wife. The concept of a woman giving her consent to being married is foreign to the Biblical mindset. If a woman cannot be proven to be a virgin at the time of marriage, she shall be stoned (Deut 22:13-21). A rapist must marry his victim (Ex. 22:16, Deut. 22:28-29) - unless she was already a fiancé, in which case he should be put to death if he raped her in the country, but both of them killed if he raped her in town (Deut. 22:23-27). If a man dies childless, his brother must marry the widow (Gen 38:6-10, Deut 25:5-10, Mark 12:19, Luke 20:28). Women marry the man of their father’s choosing (Gen. 24:4, Josh.15:16-17, Judges 1:12-13, 12:9, 21:1, 1 Sam 17:25, 18:19, 1 Kings 2:21, 1 Chron 2:35, Jer 29:6, Dan 11:17). Women are the property of their father until married and their husband after that (Ex. 20:17, 22:17, Deut. 22:24, Mat 22:25). The value of a woman might be approximately seven years’ work (Gen 29:14-30). Inter-faith marriages are prohibited (Gen 24:3, 28:1, 28:6, Num 25:1-9, Ezra 9:12, Neh 10:30, 2 Cor 6:14). Divorce is forbidden (Deut 22:19, Matt 5:32, 19:9, Mark 10:9-12, Luke 16:18, Rom 7:2, 1 Cor 7:10-11, 7:39). Better to not get married at all - although marriage is not a sin (Matt 19:10, I Cor 7:1, 7:27-28, 7:32-34, 7:38). Don’t judge, lest you be judged (Matthew 7:1-3).

It is possible to be a Republican Christian, although that would require somewhat of a different definition of Christian than most would find acceptable. However, it is IMPOSSIBLE to be a Christian Republican. That is a proven contradiction in terms.

"Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt…" (Jer. 31:31-32).

A covenant is a compact or binding agreement between persons, with stipulations and promises. The book of Hebrews clearly teaches that Christ established his new covenant, which is distinct from the old one. "He takes away the first in order to establish the second" (Heb. 7:12; 8:6-13). The Old Covenant (Testament) is "obsolete" (Heb. 8:13). Jesus ended the Old Testament Law by having "nailed it to the cross" (Col. 2:14). His "once for all" sacrifice (Heb. 7:27, 9:14, 10:12) is superior to the temporary, imperfect sacrifices under the Law (Heb. 10:1-4, 7:19).

Men are not under the Old Testament Law (Gal. 3:23-26), but we are under the gracious new covenant law of Christ (Heb. 7:12, 1:1-3).

So called "Christians" who follow the laws of the Old Testament, from which many attacks on Gays originate, are NOT Christians at all, but rather followers of Jewish Lore.

Where is the outrage in this country? Where are the millions of people that will definitely and devastatingly be ripped by such a financial hit such as this? Social security is not responsible for the financial meltdown in this country, the shady insiders on wallstreet who seem bullet proof are the ones we need to pull down and shake out of the system NOT the innocent workers in this country! MY shock is that there is such a tepid response from the masses in this matter. Petitions go out and opinions and truth get put out and yet a few thousand people sign up and get vocal yet MILLIONS play games on facebook and MILLIONS play world of warcraft and other games? The teahadists and religious extremist sectarian insurgents are working daily to tear down this country and cause chaos and anarchy and we as a group seem unaffected and unmotivated to raise a cry against this obscenity! Are we THAT numbed and THAT beat down as to allow these religious and political bullies to just walk in and shut down the very institutions that make this country great? Where is the outrage?? This is a call to arms that should have anybody with the capacity to think hitting the bricks and motivating his friends family and neighbors to stand up and put an end to this extremism before it is too late. This is the time to raise the issue of activism, NOT after the only way to get anything done is with violence. Again .....WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?

Crazy.  She wants to run for President while supporting this hate group? Bradlee Dean is now running a paid television program on WUCW - CW a local network in the Twin Cities.  AKA The Twin Cities - TV To Talk About (that is for sure). The program appears to be aimed at children and features music videos.  They request money and provide links to get more information about their extreme views.   You can contact WUCW directly at the following.Mailing Address:The CW Twin Cities - WUCW1640 Como Ave.St. Paul, MN 55108

Phone & Fax Numbers:Phone: 651-646-2300Fax: 651-646-122

You can also call Comcast at 1-800-COMCAST.  When I contacted them they refused to even contact WUCW so they apparently are supporting the programming by failing to get involved.  WUCW has a history of failing to vet their programming.

Because someone is not in favor of "gay marriage" does not mean that they are hateful or phobic.  I mean, this IS City Pages, but improve the quality of your journalism a bit!

Now Dean is saying that his 'prayer' wasn't specifically about Obama. Apparently his remarks could be referring to ANY President elected since 2008, and the 'liberal media' just naturally assumed that he was talking about Obama.

"A sampling of Dean's positions include: calling for homosexuals to bejailed for breaking the law and asserting there is no differencebetween Osama bin Laden and Barack Obama."

The Jesus I remember learning about preached only love of God, Neighbor, and Self. Clearly if you are going against those specific teachings of Jesus, you are not Christian. 

Dear Mr. Bradlee Dean, I would like to invite you to learn about my friend Jesus... Please pick up a Bible and learn what he tried to teach us.

Isn't it nice that Dean can tell if someone is a "real" Christian without even meeting them? Even if someone says that they are a Christian (as the President does), Dean can use his magical powers to see through the deception. This will surely come in handy throughout the next Inquisition. Remember when the Right used to scream that criticising a sitting President was treason?

 I have read about this wannabe rock star for years. I didn't know, however, Michele was so lustful toward Brad. That was good for a laugh. In the end, not surprising. I hadn't heard Brad referred to as a pastor before yesterday, either. I couldn't find anything online about this church he is allegedly affiliated with. This guy is a televangelist without a TV station. Instead he has used radio, schools and the internet to sell his wares. So gross.

So who would she like to sacrifice besides gays? Muslims? Foreigners? Atheists? The poor? Oh wait, she's already working on the latter.

Actually, I would recommend directly contacting the CW if you want to lodge a complaint.  Cable and satellite providers are not in charge of network programming.  It really doesn't do any good to call Comcast, DirecTV or any other provider about programming, unless it refers to content from the provider itself.  Even if the customer service rep you talk to from your provider agrees whole-heartedly with you in being horrified by the programming, they are not supposed to vocalize an opinion (could be construed as opinion of company) and can only give you contact information for the network.

Someone who calls for gay people to be sought out and put to death because it is the "moral" thing to do  can surely NOT be called loving.

It might interest you to know that Jesus mentioned hell more than any other in the bible.  Yes, Jesus is love but didn't He say, "Go and sin no more."?
