20110105_michele-bachmann_33

{NOTE: IT TURNS OUT THAT THIS STORY ISN’T TRUE. I PICKED IT UP ON A FACEBOOK POST LINKING TO A STORY FROM A GAY WEB SITE IN EUROPE, WHICH, I’VE BELATEDLY LEARNED,  HAD PICKED IT UP FROM THE SATIRICAL AMERICAN SITE, THE DAILY CURRANT. THE EUROPEAN SITE HAS SINCE DELETED THE POST.]

To which state would THIS WOMAN move if she makes good on her threat? (Suggestions welcome in the comments queue.)

Republican Michele Bachmann, has threatened to leave the US state of Minnesota, if its Senate votes to legalise equal marriage today.

A member of the US House of Representatives for Minnesota, Bachmann has threatened to leave the state, if equal marriage were to become law.

Speaking to local television station KSTP-TV this morning Bachmann said: ”Homosexuality is a sin, and God will punish communities that support it.

“Sodom and Gomorrah thought they could defy the will of God – and we all know what happened to them. If the governor signs this legislation into law the Minneapolis-St. Paul region will be next.

“I have a friend from Eden Prairie who’s already packed everything she owns into her car and is driving out to Montana as we speak. These are very scary times. I don’t want my family to be the last ones out.”

  1. Just another good reason to support marriage equality.

    Note: this article is from a Satire site, like The Onion. It is not true. (Lord knows, I wish it was.)

  3. Isn’t she a Swiss citizen or were they too progressive for her.

    Antarctica’s population would provide a warm welcome for Bachmann’s new residential status. It is so cold there, HELL must be very far away !! Her husband might miss the gay bars of Minneapolis.
