Does Michele Bachmann think only Christians should run the government? She certainly hangs out with a lot of people who do. On Sunday, Florida's Coral Ridge Ministries aired an episode of its new TV series on issues facing the 112th Congress that focuses on "Obamacare." Bachmann is the show's biggest draw, along with presidential aspirant Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.), and tea party freshman Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.).
Coral Ridge Ministries is the media empire created by the late D. James Kennedy, who founded the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 1960 and turned it into one of the country's leading megachurches. It's hardly unusual for conservative politicians to cozy up to religious broadcasters. But Bachmann's appearance, as she's considering a run for president in 2012, and her association with others of similar religious views, should raise some eyebrows.
