Joseph Farah, America’s top birther and the founder of World Net Daily, now just WND, created the event in an editorial titled, “It’s all about to hit the fan,” claiming the nation is in dire straits, and government cannot solve America’s problems — only prayer and fasting can.
Farah cites as the causes of “the nation [being] on the brink of utter disaster,” abortion, terrorism, same-sex marriage, claims of possible legalization of polygamy, not only legal but required euthanasia and death panels, one world government, a dissembling of the Second Amendment, and destruction of religion.
Farah writes that “this week I was honored to learn that Rep, Michele Bachmann has issued a statement in support of the 9/11 Day of Prayer and Fasting – a statement she entered into the Congressional Record.
“How’s that for an idea hatched less than a week ago that I honestly expected no one to hear?,” Farah adds:
I like what Mrs. Bachmann had to say in her statement: “For centuries America has been blessed by God. Americans today and in previous generations looked to God for guidance on both private and national designated days of prayer and fasting.
“At this time of national mourning, as we search for comfort in the aftermath of this loss of innocent life, we would be wise to consider afresh II Chronicles 7:14: ‘If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.’
“I join together with other Americans who have called for September 11, 2013, to be set aside as a day for personal prayer, reflection and fasting, for ourselves and for our nation.
“As we humble ourselves and pray and seek God’s face and turn from our wicked ways, we can take assurance from the Holy Scripture that God has promised to hear from heaven, will forgive our sin, and will heal our land.”
Brian Tashman at Right Wing Watch notes that “Bachmann has heartily endorsed the WorldNetDaily prayer effort to mark the anniversary of the September 11 attacks by praying against terrorism, nuclear war and homosexuality. WND editor and birther leader Joseph Farah claimed today that the day of prayer is needed to stop comprehensive immigration reform, the government’s supposed plans to stockpile weapons to ‘impose de facto firearms restrictions on citizens’ and gay rights advocates who seek to ‘make the citizenry of Sodom and Gomorrah blush.’”
The Huffington Post adds:
Bachmann and WND have been close partners in recent years. In December, the outlet gave her its “Woman of the Year” award, after a year that began with her rapid departure from the GOP presidential race and featured a highly criticized crusade against Muslim members of President Barack Obama’s administration.
Your tax dollars at work.
Separation of Church and State? Never, for Congreswoman Bachmann.
