Bachmann Says The "Rapture" Is Imminent Thanks To President Obama!

This image has nothing to do with the story but it does represent my vision of the "End Times"
In an interview last week, on a radio series actually named "End Times", former Minnesota Republican congresswoman Michele Bachmann told the shows broadcaster Jan Markell that the rapture is coming... and it's all thanks to President Barack Obama! As it turns out the President's policies on Iran’s nuclear program, marriage equality and abortion is hastening the "rapture" which some Christians believe that those who are "saved" will be transported to heaven just before armageddon.

But don't fret! Bachmann says that people should “not despair but rejoice” that the world has reached the “midnight hour” saying...

We in our lifetimes potentially could see Jesus Christ returning to earth and the Rapture of the church... We see the destruction, but this was a destruction that was foretold.”

Later in the interview, Bachmann again tied her rapture prediction to Obama’s foreign policy when she cited the administration’s nuclear negotiations with five partner nations in which they are discussing a deal that would prevent Iran from developing or obtaining nuclear weapons.

We are literally watching, month by month, the speed move up to a level we’ve never seen before with these events. Barack Obama is intent. It is his number one goal to ensure that Iran has a nuclear weapon (if by that you mean the exact opposite). If you look at the president’s rhetoric, and if you look at his actions, everything he has done has been to cut the legs out of Israel and lift up the agenda of radical Islam,”

Bachmann then went on to blame abortion and gay marriage, arguing that God is punishing the United States for “embracing a pagan view”...

Any nation that accepts God and his principles is blessed, and those who push away are cursed. That’s what we’re seeing happen to the United States. We will suffer the consequences as a result.”

Markell quickly chimed in agreeing with Bachmann saying that both legal abortion and marriage equality for gays and lesbians is bringing about divine punishment on America. Bachmann responded, lamenting...

You are right,” and that God will soon lift His “hedge of protection” over “pagan” America “and we will suffer the consequences as a result.”
That’s why so many Christians I think are sad and despairing because we know what the word of God says but it is also a chastening as individual believers for our good and that, to me, is extremely exciting.”

Here is the audio clip Bachmann explaining her religious fever dream...
