-- From "Michele Bachmann: Pray for me" by Juana Summers, Politico 5/4/11

The Minnesota congresswoman is asking supporters to pray for her as she considers a White House bid, saying she wants God to give her and her husband “a special anointing on how to put our team together.”

"It won't be easy, it will be a very, very difficult fight," she said. "If this is something that the Lord has called us to, he will make a way where there is no way, and so we're asking for that prayer."

From "Michele Bachmann says faith impacts her politics" posted at The Underground 4/13/11

Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann told a group of some 100 people [in Iowa] that she converted to Christianity as a high school teenager in Nov. 1972, and “It was an amazing time, a lifelong path of fellowship,” the Associated Press reported.

Bachmann told the group of Iowa conservatives that she is against same-sex marriage and she was shocked by the 2003 decision of the Massachusetts Supreme Court to legalize it, according to the AP.

Bachmann is also pro-life, and said in her speech in Iowa that Planned Parenthood is the “LensCrafter of big abortion,” adding that it does not deserve to have a nonprofit status, CNN said.

From "Herman Cain debate - Christian Baptist man wins the GOP debate" by Paula Mooney, Christian TV Examiner 5/6/11

. . . Cain came seemingly out of nowhere to rocket propulsion spotlight after his debate speech . . . [where he gave] viewers further information on the types of faith issues people seek to really learn about their possible future president: Chiefly, is he a Christian? What faith or religion does Cain practice?

He's Baptist, and a married father of two children, scrolled the text across the video.

Indeed, in a video on the same page of Herman Cain at the 2009 Georgia State Republican, he sounds decidedly like a preacher, a man of the cloth.

. . . Cain's Christian testimony, combined with his plain-spokenness and his business sense, gives him a fighting chance among conservative Christians.

Cain is the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza and the former chairman of the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Most recently, he had a radio talk show, "The Herman Cain Show" on WSB-AM-FM/Atlanta.

Cain said of his faith in an April interview with The Christian Post, "I believe in God, I believe in his son Jesus Christ, and I believe in the Holy Spirit." He also said, "Faith plays a very big part in my life, especially when I'm having to wrestle with some major decisions."

From "Self-taught historian molds ideas of political right" by Erik Eckholm, New York Times 5/5/11

. . . David Barton [of WallBuilders] might seem like a quirky history buff. But the true ambition of this man . . . is to use the nation's past to remake its future, and he has the ear of several would-be presidents.

Barton is a self-taught historian who is described by several potential conservative presidential aspirants as a valued adviser and a source of historical and biblical justification for their policies. He is so popular that evangelical pastors travel across states to hear his rapid-fire presentations on how the United States was founded as a Christian nation and is on the road to ruin, thanks to secularists and the Supreme Court, or on the lost political power of the clergy.

Through two decades of prolific, if disputed, research and some 400 speeches a year on what he calls the forgotten Christian roots of America, Barton, 57, a former school principal and a minister, has built a reputation as a guiding spirit of the religious right. He is also immersed in nuts-and-bolts politics and maintains a network of 700 anti-abortion state legislators.

The liberal group People For the American Way recently issued a report warning of Barton's "growing visibility and influence with members of Congress and other Republican Party officials."
