God Can Destroy America Over Gay Marriage, Former US Rep Speaks Up

Michele Bachmann is still vehemently opposed to same-sex marriage.

 The former Minnesota rep, who once dismissed the fight for marriage equality as “boring,” blasted President Barack Obama’s “dangerous policies,” including those pertaining to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, in an “Understanding the Times with Janet Markell” interview last weekend.

“When we raise our fist to holy God and say that we are going to redefine marriage, we are going to be okay with paying a Planned Parenthood to cut up innocent baby parts and sell them for research, that clearly is a problem,” Bachmann said, according to Right Wing Watch. “As we have seen God render judgment in the days of Noah, in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah and so forth throughout history, what the prophets have told every generation is that there is a just God and the people must repent and turn to him. So, too, in this day of wickedness in our own culture, we need to do the same.”

Don’t Destroy APC With Your Ambition, Kwankwaso Tells Saraki

Former Governor of Kano State and Senator representing Kano Central, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, yesterday, warned the Senate President, Bukola Sarki, against using his ambition to destroy the party they laboured to build and betray the confidence which Nigerians reposed in them by voting them for change.

In an interview with newsmen in Abuja, the former Defence Minister regretted that the Senate President had used his ambition to destroy party discipline and should be punished for it.

Kwankwaso also said the position of Deputy Senate President, currently being held by Ike Ekweremadu, did not belong to Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and must be returned to All Progressives Congress, APC, adding that for the 16 years that PDP ruled the country, at no time did the opposition get the benefit of having such a position.

According to the APC chieftain, Saraki’s ambition has given the defeated PDP an opportunity to reap where they did not sow because they were rejected in the polls by Nigerians.
