She quit. That's "biblically qualified" for you.

Yet another republican "woman" who quit...
I admit that I will miss tender moments like this:

Your book has this to say:
1 Timothy 2:12 - But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

See Table Rock's comment.

Hmmm, those fingernails look more like something you'd expect to find on a cheap crack whore and not on a "biblically qualified", wholesome, conservative Republican woman.
Same thing on the pic posted above by Percy Q. Shunn: pretty whory fingernails.

Not according to Iowan fundies. It's pretty bad when you come in last place in your home State.
1/5/2012 6:17:26 AM
In other words..."This woman is not qualified to be President of the United States".
WHY CAN'T SOME REAL ALL-AMERICAN PROGRESSIVE WOMEN RUN?!!! GEEZ! INSTEAD WE GET "SHELLY THE NUT" & "SARAH THE DITZ"!
I wanna see NORMAL women flock to Politics!

Biblically Qualified = Utter Failure.
Can't argue with that.

Anyone claiming this should be automatically disqualified. Oh well, it doesn't matter because she dropped out even though God told her to run for President.

"Michelle Bachmann: Biblically Qualified to be President of the United States"
That's the most frightening thing I've ever read.
1/5/2012 7:30:25 AM
Biblically qualified? Maybe. But she's definitely not qualified by any MEANINGFUL criteria. She thinks gas prices can be controlled by the president, she doesn't check her facts before using them, she thinks swine flu is caused by Democrats, and she has no grasp of history. Add to that that she has absolutely no experience, an abrasive personality, and is batshit insane and you'll know why she only got 5% of the vote in her own home state.

Biblically qualified? Is that like being hermeneutically approved?
1/5/2012 7:50:28 AM
That's funny, I thought Article 6 of the U.S. Constitution forbids any kind of religious test for public office. I guess she didn't get the memo.
Something else she didn't get the memo on: The bible prohibits a woman having power over a man.

Biblical citation, please!
Doesn't the Bible say that women should be silent in public?
1/5/2012 8:02:32 AM
First of all, she dropped out, secondly, doesn't the Bible say something about woman not usurping authority over a man?
1/5/2012 8:03:38 AM
I think Jesus would wholeheartedly disagree.
1/5/2012 8:10:54 AM
Your bible says women arent to be leaders.

Michele Bachmann: Biblically Qualified to Clean Porta Potties For Minimum Wage.
1/5/2012 8:27:35 AM
Unfortunately for her, Biblical leaders are not voted.
1/5/2012 8:41:00 AM
Actually there was a female judge (AKA: leader) in the old testament. That's not saying the Bible is without misogynistic parts, but there are ways to defend a woman being a leader with the Bible.
Not being a fundie, I have the luxury of not having to reconcile these opposing views in the Bible.
Also, not being a fundie, I'm glad to see Bachmann go.

I'll believe she is "Biblically qualified" to be president when God makes it amply clear Himself by writing it in supernovas in the night sky.
1/5/2012 10:30:22 AM
Its funny that all three candidates that claimed "god told me to run" (Bachmann, Perry, Cain) are also all pretty much done in their campaigns or have already quit. Either God picked a bunch or losers oooooooooor maybe they are lying sacks that tried to use religion for political gain.

= POPE =
"Biblical citation, please!"
Mark 14, 12-14 (New Batshit Translation)
And on the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they sacrificed the Passover lamb, his disciples said to him, “Where will you have us go and prepare for you to eat the Passover?” 13 And he sent two of his disciples and said to them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him, 14 and wherever he enters, say to the master of the house, "Blessed is the woman who bears the name of the Maker of Funny Pretzel Things, for we are out of Matzoh and require that which has no leavening!"
Clearly He was referring to Bachmann, who herself lacks leavening.

Hmm... there's GOT to be a better way to say that...
