Cher goes Twitter crazy on Bachmann’s ‘gay hating, bully loving, poser Christian ass’

Monday, August 1, 2011

LGBT ally Cher does not like GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann, and she’s not afraid to tell you either — or her 290,000+ Twitter followers.

After receiving a campaign mailer from Bachmann, Cher took to Twitter on Sunday to post this public reply:

The full text, which includes one additional “tweet” not pictured here, is:

“Just got spam letter from M. Bachman! My reply ! Woman go bake 2 school take history ! & if I was on my deathbed & your best friend was JESUS!!! I WOULDNT VOTE 4 YOUR GAY HATING, BULLY LOVING , POSER CHRISTIAN ASS ! Got One From The TEA PARTY 2.l ! Head STILL SPINNING !Not HAPPY With Leaders.of DEMS & PRES. EIither wtf!”

And that’s that!

  7. I appreciate the sentiment, but i hate the “poser christian” label. Just because someone’s a cunt doesn’t make them not a christian.

  11. @Jim. No it doesn’t but hiding behind the name of Jesus to fuel hatred against something you dislike does. A real Christian does not judge. I may not be one myself but I know good Christians and she doesn’t deserve that title.

  12. A TRUE Christian would not be so hateful. Just saying.

  14. Go cher!!! How dare that “Chrsitian” pass judgement on ANYONE!!!

    Posted on Monday, August 1, 2011 at 10:23pm
  15. Well Jim when they read the bible with one eye open and one closed it kinda does. Bachman obviously doesn’t care about “Judge not lest ye be judged”

  18. by definition being a c**t makes you not a christian. there’s a christian way to behave, and there’s a way to be a douche. lots of overlap, but simply believing in a deity doesn’t make you a christian. your actions make you a christian.

  19. I think poser christian is one of those terms people use to try to force people they disagree with out of their demographic, because they have that belief in jesus in common. I’ve heard it about hitler and fred phelps, and basically any christian with whom another christian had a substantial disagreement.
    There’s no reason to doubt that Bachmann tries to follow jesus any less than any of you.

  20. There is plenty of reason. Jesus teaches love and acceptance. Michele teaches hate and violence.

  21. If she wanted to follow Jesus she wouldn’t be so hateful period. Jesus’ message was of love and that woman spreads anything but that.

  25. Much appreciation to Cher for her enthusiasm against lgbt hatred and misguided christianity but she tweets like a five year old.

  26. Cher is such an ally! We heard her speak at PFLAG National a few years ago while I was in Washington for National Coming Out Day and a march for AIDS awareness. She spoke of how she had learned of her child’s coming out and her commitment to her child. Go Cher! Keep speaking up for folks who are LBGT!!! <3 maria <3

  30. I hear a lot about the Republican Tea Party being the Christian Party, The ” Party of Faith” if that is the case than does that make Jesus an atheist? Because everything I have read of Jesus and his teaching speaks of peace, love and humility. Spewing anti gay sentiments and denouncing being Lesbian or Gay as vile and immoral is far from following the teachings of Jesus Christ OUR Lord and Savior. Jesus loves ALL his children and since we were all created in his image, The current Republican Tea Party Presidential candidates have all rebuked Jesus Christ with their statements. Let’s get the facts straight. To publicly declare LGBT as immoral and unnatural is just an affirmation of how NON Christian their statements are. Anyone who thinks you can Pray Gay away when scientific evidence leads to the contrary has an issue because there is nothing wrong with US, The LGBT Community. I salute you Cher for speaking your mind.
