-- From "Bachmann Predicted The World Would End In 2006: ‘We Are In The Last Days’" by Marie Diamond, Think Progress 7/18/11

As GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann (R-MN) surges in the polls, more information is coming to light about her past that reveal the depths of her political and religious extremism.
BACHMANN [2006 prayer excerpt from YouTube audio above]: Lord, the day is at hand. We are in the last days. You are a Jehovah God. We know that the times are in your hands. And we give them to you…The day is at hand, Lord, when your return will come nigh. Nothing is more important than bringing sheep into the fold. Than bringing new life into the kingdom…You have weeded that garden. The harvest is at hand.
During the prayer session Bachmann asked God to expand the anti-gay ministry of Bradlee Dean [“You Can Run But You Can't Hide International”]. Dean has been described as “Bachmann’s Jeremiah Wright” since his radical statements pose a political problem for the candidate.

From "Is Bradlee Dean Michele Bachmann’s Rev. Wright?" by Andy Birkey, Minnesota Independent 7/7/11

. . . Dean’s invective towards Muslims, Democrats and especially the LGBT community has earned him notoriety in Minnesota politics, yet candidate Bachmann has yet to weigh in on her relationship with Dean.

While arguably not as close as Obama’s and Wright’s relationship, Bachmann and Dean’s ties date back several years. In 2005, Bachmann, then a state senator, gave Dean’s ministry a letter of endorsement after Dean sent her a copy of his comic book, “My War.”

“Your work is a testament to the struggle our youth are facing in making the right choices in the face of controversy and peer pressure,” she wrote. “I commend you on writing this book for parents and youth alike.”

And she reiterated her support for their work evangelizing in public schools. “We can’t overlook the outright rejection of God in the public school classroom, and the outright scorn of Christianity in our public square,” she said. “Moral relativism is exalted and faith in Christ is derided.”

Michele Bachmann's star is on the rise. Her poll numbers are climbing. The donations are rolling in. And the press is scrambling for any scraps about her character, her past, what makes her tick. Digging deep into the Minnesota Republican's record, reporters have found some tantalizing material: her alleged ties to the hate-mongering pastor Bradlee Dean . . .

They're juicy stories and they've gotten plenty of attention nationwide. But they aren't news--a small cluster of bloggers in Minnesota broke all those stories years ago [on the Dump Bachmann blog].

From "Feeding frenzy over 'gays' remark facing challenge" by Bob Unruh, World Net Daily 7/19/11

[Bradlee] Dean explained that his words were outrageously distorted by pro-gay reporters who listened, and other reporters who knowingly republished these distortions. At this point this snowball republication allegedly was false and misleading and included an on-air condemnation from MSNBC's Rachel Maddow that an attorney says clearly misrepresents the meaning and intent. The result could be a legal action, according to Larry Klayman, the government watchdog attorney who founded Judicial Watch and now is working with Freedom Watch.

In referencing the comments from Dean, Maddow said, "Foreign enemies rising up against America because Christians aren't doing the job of killing the gays."

. . . But that was an edited version of Dean's original message, which was a benign warning to the homosexual community that the Bible calls the behavior a sin and there are consequences for sin, so they should "flee" from that. Dean explains he was only trying to guilt the Christian community to take the radical leftist homosexual agenda more seriously.

ABC jumped into the fray with the blog comment that Dean "has suggested homosexuals be executed."

Activist sites from as Rightwingwatch took it even further, saying that Dean statements include "that Muslim nations that execute gays are more moral than American Christians."

State Democrat-Farmer-Labor Party Rep. Karen Clark accused Dean of saying that "extremists who call for the execution of American gays are morally justified."
