I would have loved to be a fly on the Torah that evening.
I can't even begin to imagine why she would have thought this to be a good idea.Bachmann has been a vocal supporter of Israel and an unabashed opponent of gay rights, an awkward policy duo on that particular night; Siegel told the Tribune that the night's service had included a piece honoring Israel for its openness to the LGBT community.
As one person noted, before leaving the service and then donating to her political opponent:
Of course the irony also is that Bachmann would be sitting there with the smug notion that the Jews in the congregation and Israel only represent a logistical necessity along the way to the Rapture for fundamentalist Christians like her."Bachmann actively campaigns against virtually every principle on which my faith is grounded. She is not simply someone with whom I disagree, but symbolizes and promotes a brand of politics that is intolerable and unworthy of being honored in any house of worship".
