Michele Bachmann sorry for telling Jews to convert to Christianity to hasten the End Times

Published

Michele Bachmann apologized in Israel for urging Jews to convert to Christianity to bring about the biblical End of Days.

The former Minnesota congresswoman and failed Republican presidential candidate said she was sorry Sunday for her remarks three years ago about Jews and armageddon, reported the Times of Israel.

“Personally, I know that in ignorance … myself, I have stated things that I should not have said and I profoundly apologize and repent and ask forgiveness from Almighty God for my statements that, though said in ignorance, have brought pain,” Bachmann said.

Bachmann told a right-wing radio station in 2015, following a visit to Israel, that intensifying violence in the region signaled the return of Jesus — and called for mass conversions.

“We recognize the shortness of the hour,” Bachmann told Washington Watch, “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 apologized at a special joint Bible study class for Christians and Jews co-sponsored by the Knesset Caucus for the Encouragement of Bible Study, the Schindler Society and Israel365’s Yeshiva for the Nations.

She was in Israel to celebrate the move of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Joe Biden apologizes for ‘partisan lynching’ comments about Bill Clinton’s impeachment

Published

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday apologized for comments he made saying impeachment could be viewed as a "partisan lynching."

The comments from a 1998 interview were reported after Biden said it was "abhorrent" and "despicable" for President Donald Trump to refer to impeachment as a lynching.

"Even if the President should be impeached, history is going to question whether or not this was just a partisan lynching or whether or not it was something that in fact met the standard, the very high bar, that was set by the founders as to what constituted an impeachable offense," Biden said in 1998.
