I hate to say it and it may offend some for my comment here, but I cannot say I can totally discount their position on this one myself.
The phrase "this is an historical judgment based on scripture" is an oxymoron- possibly uttered by morons.
It's OK for Michelle Bachmann and her (former) church to think this. I wouldn't be surprised if the Pope thinks that Michelle Bachmann is the anti-Christ.
P.S. I was raised in the Lutheran Missouri Synod -- and they aren't any better. The notion that the Pope is the anti-Christ might come straight from Martin Luther.
While I am no fan of the Pope in any way, shape or form, perhaps Bachmann's church should look within its congregation before pointing fingers.
