WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – Former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has proposed a ban on the sale in the U.S. of the Menorah, a candelabrum used in Jewish worship, especially during the observance of Hanukkah.
She made the proposal as she called for an intensified effort to convert Jews to Christianity.
In the radio program, “Washington Watch,” Bachmann discussed the meaning of the recent intensification of violence in Israel and the West Bank. She cast the violence as a signal of the return of Jesus, which would necessitate mass conversions.
“We recognize the shortness of the hour,” Bachmann said on the program hosted by Tony Perkins, “and that’s why we as a remnant want to be faithful in these days and do what it is that the Holy Spirit is speaking to each one of us, to be faithful in the Kingdom and to help bring in as many as we can — even among the Jews — share Jesus Christ with everyone that we possibly can because, again, He’s coming soon.”
Bachmann added that banning the sale of the Menorah would be a great and meaningful first step in converting Jews to Christianity. She proposed that American Jews should decorate their homes with a Christmas tree instead. “If that offends them, then an alternative would be to set up a giant inflatable Santa Claus in their front lawns,” she said.
