News that Michele Bachmann has ended her membership in a brand of Lutheranism that condemns the Papacy as Antichrist is a sign that the forces making America a tolerant country as well as a religious one are still at work. In national politics, bigots can’t win.The Catholic vote isn’t large enough to elect a Catholic the Protestants don’t trust, and Protestants are so divided between conservatives and liberals that no single Protestant bloc can dominate the country. To win you have to get the crossover vote; Michelle Bachmann can’t even aspire to the GOP nomination without making her peace with the Catholic vote.Peoria, it appears, is well worth a mass — and that is very good news for the United States.
