Michele Bachmann on marriage: "It is one man, one woman -- because God said it is" [VIDEO]

She's now even less gay friendly than Chick-fil-A.
For better or worse, Michele Bachmann isn't leaving Minnesota now that we're the land of the free and the home of the gays. But that doesn't mean she doesn't have an opinion about about marriage equality.

During a Liberty Counsel event earlier this spring, Bachmann made comments about gay marriage that echo what Minnesota for Marriage has been saying for the last year or so -- marriage is between one man and one woman because, dammit, God said so.

Here's a transcript of her marriage remarks, followed by the raw video (h/t: Right Wing Watch):
"You see if we retreat from our values and fail to make the case on issues like marriage - because it is one man, one woman - because God said it is. Not because it's poll tested - because God said it is. And life - not because it's poll tested, because God stands for life. He made us in his image and likeness. And if we tread too softly on issues, like taking on Islamic jihad, and if we fight too timidly, and if we strive too meekly, then I think we all understand we very easily could come face to face with defeat, and then our nation would in fact pay a great and a lasting price, one that none of us wants to face...

"Because we need to recognize the desperate situation of our condition, not only in the natural but also in the supernatural. Because as the scripture was read from the pulpit at Margaret Thatcher's funeral, we fight not against this world, we fight against the powers and principalities and 'Prince of the Air,' that's where we need to focus as well, is on spiritual warfare..."


Yesterday, Bachmann took to Twitter to emphasize her support for "traditional marriage" right as the Senate's historic debate was being held: Well, you can say this about Bachmann: She's not going to compromise when it comes to her her deeply held convictions no matter which way the winds of history are blowing.

What is she going to do if her hubby comes out of the closet? She will find a way to blame Obama for it.

At Fred Johnston... With weak limp of wrist, as my dad called it, doing my best to vote her out. Although, I have gone now thru several cycles. I am celebrating today. She is a bit of a fly on my windshield

Oh, she hasn't taken me up on it. But her phone team, pleasant as you might imagine. No push and shove with that stepford group

Without Bachmann, we'd all be bored. She's free comedy. Enjoy.

If the press could refrain from covering Bachmann except when she does something of consequence in the US House of Representatives we'd never hear from her again.

Is this another hoax post. Either way, not today. I live in Bachmann territory, she and her husband are welcome for chat. But today, I celebrate.

Or in her case, one conspicuously effeminate man and a woman who clearly wears the pants.
