Bachmann Endorses Ex-Gay Group In 2004: I Know Love Won Out Will Present The Truth About Homosexuality
By Igor Volsky on Jul 6, 2011 at 10:02 am

In todays Washington Post, Jason Horowitz profiles Michele and Marcus Bachmann, noting the couples extreme anti-gay views and links to pray away the gay therapy. Michele Bachmann who came to prominence for sponsoring a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage in Minnesota has called gay marriage probably the biggest issue that will impact our state and our nation in the last, at least, 30 years and described her lesbian step-sister as leading a very sad life thats part of Satan.

Marcus Bachmann can be even more blunt. He compared homosexuals to barbarians who need to be disciplined, and in 2005 delivered a presentation during which he introduced three people as former homosexuals as proof that sexual orientation is a choice. Bachmanns Christian counseling clinics have also been rumored to perform reparative therapy, a charge he denies while reiterating the notion that gay and lesbian individuals choose to be attracted to people of the same sex. If someone comes in a homosexual and they want to stay homosexual, I dont have a problem with that, he said.

But Michele Bachmann has gone even further in endorsing the discredited ex-gay movement. In 2004, as ex-gay proponents Love Won Out prepared to hold their annual conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota for those struggling with unwanted homosexuality, Bachmann not only lent a quote for the groups press release but also opened the conference with a greeting and blessing. From the release:

We are so pleased that Minneapolis has invited us back to share again that change is possible for those who are no longer satisfied with their homosexuality, said Mike Haley, host of the Love Won Out conference, a former homosexual and the author of the book 101 Frequently Asked Questions About Homosexuality. In fact, we have been officially welcomed by Minnesota Sen. Michele Bachmann, the author of the state marriage-protection amendment.

1. And She Used To Be Just Some No-Name State Senator
How did she get into the position to keep embarrassing our state like this?

Oh right, the pukes gerrymandered the congressional district so that nutcases like her can defeat decent people like Patty Wetterling :grr:

33. She made a name for herself by going on Tweety...
And suggesting that the media needs to do a better job exposing the rampant "Anti-Americanism" in congress. I've gotta give it to whoever thought up that stunt, it worked like a charm in turning her form a nobody freshman congressperson into a major media darling.

38. Is social reactionary conservatism a 'Nord' thing?
From what I understand Minnesota's population is largely descended from Swedes, Norwegians and other Scandinavian types. They've always seemed to me more 'rigid' and a bit less tolerant than people who are from more temperate climes. Could there be something to this?

2. Thank you for posting. I didn't know
about MB's step-sister. Maybe her life is "sad", but maybe that's a result of not being accepted by family and others for who she is. I hope she has found peace in the company of others.

In my opinion, MB is a sad person for living in her delusional world.

Of course, Michele ma belle is so busy cooking for her five children and 28 foster kids and running around Iowa and the Capitol and giving speeches and oh, my golly, I'm exhaused. She's quite the multi-tasker.

That would be one where you are taught to believe the things Michelle Bachmann does.

Not much of a diagnostician, is he?

9. It is only a matter of time until Marcus gets caught in a wide stance situation.
The gaydar must go off the scale when he walks into a room.

Will Michelle do then?

But I'm straight, but watching a video of him.....Even my weak gaydar went off.

Maybe that's unfair of my....But he does seem like there may be at least the temptation for "wide stance urges" there

8. So they have much common ground with Donnie McClurkin
He of the 'ex gay' movement and also the Obama Primary Campaign 08, where he was sole speaker as surrogate to Senator Obama.
You are correct that such people are dangerous. All of them are. All of them. I expect the Bachmanns to be vicious and ignorant, but not Democrats.

20. !
That line gets drawn every time, even though no one has heard a peep out of either McLurkin or Rick Warren in years.


Kennedy used to do the bidding of Rome, too, using that line of logic.

Bachmann (both of them) are pigs. Surely, this reflects poorly on Obama.

10. From Michelle's husband I learned
that the reason the repubs think it is a choice, is because so many of them are gay and really think that everybody(all people) have homosexual urges and that all you have to do, to not be gay, is deny the urges.

They don't get that only homosexuals feel homosexual attractions. Heterosexuals don't all of a sudden feel amorous about someone of the same sex.

22. Exactly
I came to that conclusion several years ago when a bible believer who I knew to have bisexual feelings argued that we chose who we are attracted to. If I was impolite I could have mentioned that only bisexuals can chose, but that would have implied that he was bisexual.

14. Hey Mr. Bachmann
I understand you have set aside you natural instincts and are living a life you must continually convince yourself is honroable and noble and couragious and righteous and hetersexual. So you create a clinic, and make public appearances to "help" others in the same boat? You would really want others to live this type of lie and pretend there is joy to be had? wow. All I can say is that this is the biggest example of "Misery loves Company" I have ever witnessed.

16. The sad life that the step-sister may live is because she is
related in anyway to Michelle Bachmann.

Bachmann must not be familiar with Matthew 7:1-3

"Judge not, that ye be not judged.
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again."

That this hateful swill would come out of the mouth of a graduate of O W Coburn "Law School" at Oral Roberts "University".

O W Coburn is the father of Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn (R, of course).

Maybe he could get into music? Convince Keith & Woody to revive "The New Barbarians" :evilgrin:
