Michelle Bachman has a Reverend Wright Problem

Barak Obama's campaign for president was nearly derailed when it was revealed he attended a Church where anti-American teachings were sometimes shared. Now, the Atlantic Monthly is reporting that Michelle Bachman has a similar problem. She recently made the politically expedient decision to quit the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS), an ultra conservative Lutheran subsect founded in 1850 that asserts in its founding doctrinal statements that the Roman Pontiff is the antichrist.  Here's what the Synod's website says:
Since Scripture teaches that the Antichrist would be revealed and gives the marks by which the Antichrist is to be recognized, and since this prophecy has been clearly fulfilled in the history and development of the Roman Papacy, it is Scripture which reveals that the Papacy is the Antichrist.
How do you think Catholic voters are going to feel about that?

And of course, the Synod's view of Jews is not much kinder: Here's what the website says about us:
...unbelieving Jews (or unbelievers from any other ethnic group) or followers of Judaism who have rejected Jesus Christ as the Messiah and Savior of mankind.... did not and do not go to heaven. Acts 4:12 affirms that Christ alone is the Savior of mankind. The grief of all believers regarding the loss of unbelieving Jews (Israel) is well expressed by Paul in Romans 9:30-33 and Romans 10:1-13.
Now what I said about Wright applies to Bachman and her Synod, too.  See it here
