Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has long been a darling of conservative evangelicals, but shortly before announcing her White House bid, she officially quit a church she’d belonged to for years.
Bachmann, a Minnesota congresswoman, and her husband, Marcus, withdrew their membership from Salem Lutheran Church in Stillwater, Minnesota, last month, according to church officials.
Now, you can't get much more evangelical than the Lutheran church, to be sure. As a member myself, the church has some pretty radical ideals. For example, we teach that the head of the Roman Catholic church, the Pope, is the Anti-Christ (so much for Barack Oba--oh wait! NOW it all makes sense!)
