Michele Bachmann Gives Her Testimonial

And it has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with something the American Left hate: a public figure professing faith in Jesus.
What’s strange is that liberals find this type of narrative perfectly acceptable when what is being testified to is some appropriately secular conversion: “Why I became a lesbian feminist” or “When I learned the undenjiable scientific truth of global warming” or “How I discovered that my Republican parents are closet Nazis.” It is only the conversion narrative of Bible-believing Christians that liberals find obnoxiously repellant. And the idea that a Bible-believing Christian might think themselves called to high public office . . .
Well, liberals just can’t handle that — at least when the self-identified Christian is a pro-life conservative Republican. It was OK for John F. Kennedy to be Catholic, it was OK for Jimmy Carter to be a Baptist, and it was OK for Barack Obama to be whatever it is you want to call devotees of what Rev. Jeremiah Wright preaches. But let a conservative Republican speak in public about his or her Christian faith, and liberals immediately start screaming about “theocracy.”
Oh, you can claim to be a Christian if you’re a Leftist. You can hold socialist gatherings masquerading as Sunday Sermons. But you cannot testify about the True Nature of Jesus or your own journey to true Salvation. That’s baaaaad.
It doesn’t matter that Michele Bachmann did not tie her conversion or her Biblical hero into current politics — or any politics for that matter. The American Left will, guaranteed. Because the American Left hates any profession of true faith in Jesus from any Conservative.
