Robert Emmitt, senior pastor of Community Bible Church, San Antonio’s largest congregation, on his opposition to a proposed city ordinance designed to protect gays and lesbians from discrimination.

  1. U.S Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., says “Congress needs to discipline President Obama on immigraton and health care.

    He has a perpetual magic wand, and nobody’s given him a spanking yet and taken it out of his hand.”

    Oh the frustrari!!! The extremist right wing nut job Republicans and Tea Party idiots so much believed Benghazi, the IRS, and all of these other trumped up charges against Obama would stick and make political hay for them—only to find out there was nothing to them and that the vast public was not interested. Tefloni Obami!!! As the Bible says, draw your sword out to strike down a good man in the Lord’s eyes, and that same sword will be thrust through your own heart. There’s just no getting rid of this negro President, and you have him for—still—nearly another four years. Count’em:
    1, 2, 3, 4.

    Oh, and that magic wand Michele? It is the system of checks and balances in the U.S. Constitution and the massive veto power given to every President. It is also the Holy Spirit of God protecting a good and decemt Christian man from evildoers like perpetually documented liar Michele Bachmann and who ever else the shoe fits.
