Michele Bachmann: Congress cannot pass laws that contradict ‘God’s law’

Former Republican House Representative Michele Bachmann declared last week that Congress can never pass laws that violate the laws of God, because doing so only would “degrade the greatness of a nation.”

Former Republican House Representative Michele Bachmann declared last week that Congress can never pass laws that violate the laws of God, because doing so only would “degrade the greatness of a nation.”

Appearing on David Barton’s “Foundations of Freedom” series airing on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, Bachmann said that the marble portrait of Moses over the gallery doors of the House chamber is there as a reminder to all lawmakers of the Ten Commandments.

“Holy God gave to Moses the moral law, the Ten Commandments, the law upon which every other law has descended and upon which no other law, if it violates that moral law, could stand because that is the ultimate law,” Bachmann said.

She also claimed that laws which do not uphold God’s moral law “degrades us as a nation, it degrades our liberties and it degrades the greatness of a nation and that’s what God understood from Old Testament times: The greatness of a nation is built up by His law.”

According to Patheos, the beauty of our legal system is that we can, in theory, change it when we realize it’s wrong. If a law is unjust or ineffective, we can revise it. We can write new laws that supersede the old ones. Biblical law isn’t subject to change. Conservatives see that as a strength, even though that’s its biggest weakness.

    “Cannot”? Really? Perhaps “should not” is a more appropriate personal opinion.

    If she is going to reference Moses and the Ten Commandments does that mean the Sabbath changes from Sunday to Saturday and pork is no longer a food source?

    The whole question is rediculous. God has ZERO to do with laws other than we have a law that keeps hers and your diety out of our Govt. Moot point keeps coming up. In terms of governing, God does not exist except we keep having to spend money to send “God” back to your church where it belongs! Its a protection from any single group getting their diety an official country diety, foolishness. God exists only in you!
