WELS does hold to the historic Lutheran position* that the Roman Catholic papacy fits the biblical characteristics of the anti-Christ.Not sure what this has to do with Michele Bachmann, who is crazed for several other reasons. But somebody's not been reading their Bible:
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. — 1 John 2:18Er, and don't follow the logic if you know what's good for you.
Of course there have been many popes too and the world hasn't ended. Besides, if the pope is the antichrist what does that make the antipope?
Anyway not to worry, there always Carole Pope.
* It's probably unwise to hold to 'em all.
