There may “be occasions when Christians Muslims are mistaken on some point while nonbelievers get it right,” she writes in “Total Truth.” “Nevertheless, the overall systems of thought constructed by nonbelievers will be false—for if the system is not built on Biblical Qur'anic truth, then it will be built on some other ultimate principle. Even individual truths will be seen through the distorting lens of a false world view.

Fixed it. Now it's a Muslim fundamentalist's worldview.

TPM has a similarly-focused post about Bachmann's book shelf, including a Confederacy-apologia:

Earlier in her political career, Bachmann recommended a biography of Robert E. Lee by J. Steven Wilkins on her State Senate campaign site under "Michele's Must Read List."

In it Wilkins describes the Civil War a holy conflict between the godly South and heathen North and writes that "most southerners strove to treat their slaves with respect and provide them with a sufficiency of goods for a comfortable, though--by modern standards--spare existence" and that the institution bred "mutual esteem" between races as slaves adopted Christianity. Bachmann recently came under fire for signing onto a social conservative pledge that suggested African Americans families were better off under family (she and the group subsequently disavowed the language.)

Weirdly, Bachmann isn't even from the South.

She's a religious fanatic and it scares me that she polls as well as she does.

4 What, me worry?  Mon, Aug 8, 2011 10:23:48am

It reminds me of the mindset of Mike Bickle of International House of Pancakes Prayer and his horrifying characterization of Oprah as She-Devil. The message that if you are not a white Christian you are an outsider and outsiders can never be trusted is shocking to me coming from politicians in this country, particularly in the year 2011. I really hoped we'd be over this shit already.

I don't understand Frum's comment, though, that the tea party is not a libertarian movement. What happened last week in the economy was because of THEM. They abhor government only when it doesn't serve THEM. They don't want to pay taxes for schools they don't go to, for welfare they don't take advantage of or for taxing their rich friends. They want less government for others, oh yes, very libertarian, but not less for them. They were the ones who put the stranglehold on Obamacare and yet they want Washington to keep their hands of SS and Medicare because those are programs that they will benefit from.

So what IS a "true" libertarian? Ron Paul who is anti-Abortion? Few things are all or nothing, but there is no doubt that the rise of the tea party is the rise of the libertarian movement.

“Nevertheless, the overall systems of thought constructed by nonbelievers will be false—for if the system is not built on Biblical truth, then it will be built on some other ultimate principle. Even individual truths will be seen through the distorting lens of a false world view."

That's taking two truths doctrine a little bit too far.
