Thanks to an extensive investigation from our friends at Truth Wins Out (TWO), there is now definite proof that Marcus Bachmann’s clinic, Bachmann & Associates, has been practicing Ex- Gay therapy. This is a clinic that receives state funds, so their practices should strictly be in line with with what the American Psychiatric Association teaches, and homosexuality has been off the books as a mental illness since 1973. Furthermore, it is questionable as to whether Marcus Bachmann is indeed lying about having 23 years of experience with a PhD. Queerty reports that not only does the math not add up, but the university he claims to have graduated from doesn’t even offer the degree he claims to have earned.
This comes as no surprise, but it sheds light on just how dangerous it would be for Michele Bachmann to land in the Oval Office. Her own husband, Dr. Marcus Bachmann, has made some most disturbing statements about America’s LGBT community. Think Progress published the comments, and Connexion ran a story with his full remarks, as follows:
We have to understand: barbarians need to be educated. They need to be disciplined. Just because someone feels it or thinks it doesn’t mean that we are supposed to go down that road. That’s what is called the sinful nature. We have a responsibility as parents and as authority figures not to encourage such thoughts and feelings from moving into the action steps…
This is the man whose wife wishes to be Commander in Chief of this country. It comes as no surprise, but, combined with the fact that she actually has a rather rabid following of religious bigots, it could happen. These are dangerous times, and the only way to stop this travesty is to take action. If, for no other reason, please get out and stop this for our youth. Spread the word on what kind of people could wind up in the White House if we are complacent. Use the following video as your evidence and proof as you tell the nation what sort of people the Bachmanns really are.
