Bachmann confirmed he'll "ungay" those who ask for it.
Marcus Bachmann's clinic will help gay people go straight, but only if they ask nicely.

In an interview with the Star Tribune, Bachmann confirmed that his clinic will treat patients' homosexuality as a disorder that can and should be cured.

Bachmann was only giving in to a mountain of evidence, including an undercover tape in which a gay man posed as a client and was told prayer would turn him straight, and the story told by Minneapolis man Andrew Ramirez

In the same interview, Bachmann claims he never said gays are "barbarians" who "need to be disciplined."

Bachmann told the Star Tribune that Bachmann and Associates treated undercover Truth Wins Out activist John Becker because he went to the clinic voluntarily.

"This individual came to us under a false pretense,'' Bachmann told the Star Tribune. "The truth of the matter is he specifically asked for help.''

The Star Tribune's report doesn't mention Ramirez, who told City Pages he was sent to "ungay" therapy at 17 years old. Ramirez said his counselor claimed to have successfully turned gay adolescents straight in the past.

Bachmann confirmed his clinic tries to "ungay" people like Andrew Ramirez.
While accepting the charge that his clinic treats homosexuality as a disorder, Bachmann says he never actually called gays "barbarians." The Youtube clip that drove Cher to start a Twitter jihad against the Bachmanns was taken from a 2010 interview with "Point of View," a Christian radio show.

Bachmann says the clip is a fake, and that he's never referred to gay people with that word. He also says the phrase "they need to be disciplined" was in reference to children.

It's unclear what Bachmann claims about the rest of that clip, which continued:

"Barbarians need to be educated, they need to be disciplined. And just because someone feels it or thinks it, doesn't mean that we're supposed to go down that road. That's what's called a sinful nature, and we have a responsibility as parents and authority figures not to encourage such thoughts and feelings to move into  the action steps."

The recording runs smoothly, and shows no obvious sign of being cut together, but the "Point of View" archives online don't go back far enough to check Bachmann's claim.

In defending himself and his clinic, Bachmann made it sound like he's only trying to help people who need it.

"We don't have an agenda or a philosophy of trying to change someone,'' Bachmann said.

I thought, the message of the gay community, was for all to be accepting of one another despite the differences in personal views and sexual preference.

Can't you just accept him for who he is.Damn him and "his personal views", say the militant gay!!!!

Hmmm, I see "Bigotry" works both directions.

Marcus Bachmann is simply the latest in a long history of self-loathing homosexuals (Haggard, Rekers, Foley, Drier, Ashburn, etc., etc., etc) who project their inner conflicts onto other people. Whatever rentboy is carrying his luggage for him would be doing Mr. Bachmann a favor by outing him and beginning Bachmann's long, long, long journey of self-acceptance, to say nothing of preventing further victims from being subjected to his anti-gay claptrap.

If you were/are a parent, which would you rather have: a gay son, or a whore daughter?

It's funny how much these so called "Christians" lie.    Bradlee Dean and his minions are all a pack of lying scumbags.   Marcus Bachmannn is a liar too.    The funniest thing is how obviously not fake the clips of Marcus the liar are.    Nothing makes a scandal drag out and look worse than trying to cover up Marcus.   Ask Anthony Weiner.

I wonder what he would say to a bisexual who wished to treat his hetero away. "Son, this is a pastor I know..."

Pure hypocrisy, and typical of you.  Calling a bigot a bigot is not bigotry.  Nor is it militant.  The Bachmanns are bigots.  Plain fact.  Their personal views are hateful.  Plain fact.  You're a drooling liar.  Plain fact.

At least the Bachmanns have this in common:  they both married beneath them.

Answer: Both are forbidden under Leviticus.

Don't forget, every time you sin you must go to temple and sacrifice doves, crows or a bull. Also in the Bible.

I would be HONORED to have a gay son or daughter.  But if I had a straight son or daughter, I'd love them anyway.  A "whore daughter"?  Well, I'd have to hope she observed very strict safety rules and lived in Nevada where it's legal.

That's precisely what the Bachmanns need to sacrifice:  100% of their Bull.
