Did you know that ‘God designed the male eyes to be attracted to the female figure, like boobs and everything’? Yes, it’s all there in the Bible, or, well sort of.
It will come as a great relief for many, but you too can now pray away those unsightly gay temptations – for a fee of course. They may be fundamentalist Christians, but it doesn’t mean they save souls for free. If you only have Medicare, no problem, they accept that there.
(From LA Times) As a consequence of her surge in the polls, Michele Bachmann is now facing the kind of scrutiny that comes with being a major presidential candidate.
ABC News reported Monday that the controversial clinic run by Bachmann’s husband, Marcus, and owned by the couple has suggested in counseling that prayer could help switch a patient’s sexual orientation.
“[One counselor's] path for my therapy would be to read the Bible, pray to God that I would no longer be gay,” the report quotes one patient, Andrew Ramirez, who said he sought treatment at the clinic in 2004. “And God would forgive me if I were straight.”
The issue of whether the Bachmanns use religious-based counseling in an effort to eradicate homosexuality in patients has dogged them for years. Marcus Bachmann has denied engaging in such efforts in the past.
The ABC News report, which followed a similar story in The Nation, tracks the experience of another patient who went undercover at the Bachmann clinic in Lake Elmo, Minn. John Becker, a gay activist, writes that it became clear to him in several sessions that therapists at the clinic believe they can change a person’s sexual orientation.
“Based on my experiences at Bachmann & Associates, there can no longer be any doubt that Marcus Bachmann’s state- and federally-funded clinic endorses and practices reparative therapy aimed at changing a gay person’s sexual orientation, despite the fact that such “therapy” is widely discredited by the scientific and medical communities,” Becker wrote.
ABC News reported that Bachmann’s presidential campaign refused to comment on its report, but noted that Bachmann, when asked about the clinic, says she’s proud of the business and proves that she can create jobs.
