michele bachmann supported reparative therapy for gays

That's right, folks! If you're gay, Michele wants to turn you straight.

Presidential homophobe Michele Bachmann spoke up about her feelings regarding reparative/conversion therapy during a Love Won Out conference that she opened in 2004.

Here's what she had to say about reparative therapy for gays at the time:

"I know that Love Won Out will present the truth about homosexuality and present it in a compassionate and loving manner."

"Those of us working to safeguard marriage from redefinition by radical judges must inform our efforts with an understanding of the deep emotional wounds that many in the homosexual community carry. I look forward to welcoming Minnesotans and residents of surrounding states to hear the message of healing that is possible."

And here's what Bachmann has said about author Janet Boynes' book Called Out: A Former Lesbian's Discovery of Freedom:

"Janet's life is a powerful testimony of the changes that Christ can bring through His healing power from the bondage of sin."

Wow. We are truly appalled by Bachmann's views on homosexuality. She never ceases to disgust/disappoint us.

Sickening.

    Michelle, lay off the botox. You look like a mannequin.



  2. 2

    You realize there are people who don't think homosexuality is right, right? And that it doesn't mean they're homophobes, right? It's their belief and their right. You "protect" everyone else's rights except whomever disagrees with you. Same sex marraige should definitely be allowed in the US, but you should also realize some gays don't want to be gay, if that makes sense. So, if they want to try to un-gay themselves shouldn't there be support for them?



  3. 3

    This woman is vile.



  4. 4

    She's got my vote. Keep posting stories about her, keep putting her in the spotlight. She sounds brilliant. Maybe you should comment about Janet Boynes' book or is the fact she's a lesbian automatically takes her off your hit list?



  5. 5

    Michelle's husband is a homosexual who has turned his self hate outward to hating others. Just like Adolph Hitler did. Michelle is invested in reparative therapy because if it does not work that means her entire marriage is a sham. This woman's ignorance knows no bounds. She thinks she is saving families being a Republican but all she is really doing is fronting for huge international corporations who want to rule this country. JMHO

    Get your facts straight homo and stop bashing the right. I thought you were a changed man and stopped the bullying. Go eat a donut you're too skinny



  7. 7

    Why do you constantly go on and on and on and on and on and on and on about this type of stuff?

    If you were ok…WITH YOURSELF…it wouldn't be such an issue.

    The fact is that YOU HAVE YOUR OWN DOUBTS about gayness in general and YOUR GAYNESS in particular.

    "Me thinks the lady doth protest too loudly."

    Re: MariMookie

    So that means's it's ok for gays to think the people who hate them have no right to exist? Let's debate wether YOU have a right to live? Shall we?

    Re: boston61 – You know, I was just going to write that I was wondering how long before her "dark secrets" come out. Well here we go. I figured it was either she was a closet lesbian or someone close to her is gay. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity, but it was only a matter of time. People like her ALWAYS have some sort of secrets they're ashamed of, that's the reason they get so worked up about stuff that otherwise would be none of their business. They're doing damage control before it happens, like CYA. Hopefully someone will drop a house on her.

    "The Bondage of Sin"… I love that expression..
    I think I'll have it inked on..
    People, come join the bondage of sin..it's funfunfun!!!!



  11. 11

    No surprise there. She's a fascist.



  12. 12

    @Boston61- I'm not sure how you pulled the "life or death" card out of your ass from my post, but sure, I'll debate you. You sound super smart and very well educated on the subject. I'll make this simple for you. Part 1: Those who "gay hate" make up a very small percentage of the population, they just happen to be louder than those of us who may disagree with it, but really don't give a crap if you're gay or not. It doesn't make us treat them any different. You, sir, need to understand the difference. Part 2: In reference to my actual post, which you seem to have clearly read thoroughly, I didn't bash anyone, give indication about taking someone's life, or deny anybody the right to exist. You, however, did. If you'd like to have a resonable debate without the hate, then I'm for it. I'll be awaiting your rebuttal.



  13. 13

    seriusly??? groundbreaking news!!! lmao! HELLO! SHE'S A REPUBLICAN! LOL!



  14. 14

    She kind of looks like DR. Phils wife - sort of plastic



  15. 15

    You twist everything and preach hate….Perez, all you do is frame any issue in a hateful way. You hate anyone who disagrees with you….yet you pretend to preach tolerance and "love". What a hypocritical joke you are. So transparent and sad.



  16. 16

    Re: boston61 – i have no idea how u got that to what mari mookie just said. its ither i read it wrong, or you need to re read it.



  17. 17

    She's probably a closet lesbin. If not she is just down right hateful, next will be blacks, mexicans and any non white that is what all the tea-baggers are about. It all happened when Obama got elected. Bachman is CRAZY BITCH



  18. 18

    What a disgusting bigot!
    And she wants to be president of ALL the people??
    Yikes!



  19. 19

    By no means to I approve of her behavior or the belief that homosexuality can be "cured" seeing as it leads to emotional and some times physical abuse of gay teens. However, she is in-titled to her opinion and bashing her for having one won't help anyone. Tolerance has to be a two-way street.



  20. 20

    Gotta love that a country that refers to itself as the land of the free, is one of the only western countries left where being a homophobe doesnt really hurt you when running for office.



  21. 21

    She's a typical finge lunatic who hates America. She and her followers are insane. She needs anti cun*t therapy.



  22. 22

    Am I incorrect in believing a phobia is a fear? Why is it that when someone disagrees with homosexuality, you label them a homophobe? I don't think they FEAR the gay community. It isn't like if you are touched by a gay person, you yourself will become gay. This is ridiculous. What's the biggest thing to fear, that glitter will be thrown in your face? If we are gonna label, can we at least get the terms right?



  23. 23

    Yes “the homosexual community have deep emotional wounds” - but it's only because of people like this woman! Why doesn't she try to "reform" herself and become a Lesbian?

    Re: calpurnia – Love you take on it - very funny



  26. 26

    To ALL the ignoramuses that say homosexuality is against nature, get educated!! Google: "Homosexual behavior in animals", check out Wiki's "List of animals displaying homosexual behavior" and don't let your paranoia have you thinking those findings are a gay conspiracy either — those are scientific findings. Get a grip on yourselves and learn how to be decent human beings instead of prejudicial bigots. I don't know how you can sleep at night when you judge someone inferior to yourself.

    Re: Mad Dog – You want to bang her don't ya



  28. 28

    Re: Michmasterflex – I agree - how did boston come up with that?



  29. 29

    Re: Average Jane – In the last sentence of your statement, you called homosexuals inferior. That sounds like judgement. I didn't think that was the direction you were trying to go with your comment…it seems hypocritical to stand up for someone while at the same time putting them down. Maybe you misspoke?



  30. 30

    By 'Reparative Therapy', I thought it was anal stiching or something helpfull like that…you know.. to stop the hemmroidal bleeding from all that pounding.



  31. 31

    I can't wait until the Gays start excluding the BI-SEXUAL people. Telling them that they need to stop loving the opposite sex and saying 'you are gay, just admit it and stop trying to be NOT GAY.'
    I agree with Re: MariMookie – If someone truly has a choice and chooses NOT to lead a gay lifestyle and they are having trouble dealing with the gay community bailing out on them and shutting them down, they need help and support… not HATE.



  32. 32

    Re: boston61 – I didn't know her husband was gay…that explains why she looks like she just sat on a cucumber! lol



  33. 33

    Although I consider myself to be a VERY conservative individual, I personally think that this woman just needs to go away. Not only is she focusing TOO much on social issues (like sexuality), I've always thought that being a President was more of a man's job (and I'm female). Oh well. It doesn't matter anyway, because there's no way in HELL that she'd be picked over our other candidates. "NEXT!"



  34. 34

    Perez you can't have it both ways. She is entitled to her opinion. BTW, I was a research assistant for Dr. Nicolosi who started reparative therapy. It's a healing process. You don't speak for all the gays-the ones at the Love Won Out conferences don't. I dare you to go to one, just listen, and don't disrupt.



  35. 35

    Re: Hairplugs for Hilton – She has your vote which means your a tea party person. So why the HELL would you be on a main steam media website ran by a gay man? Your on her because? I would never go on Mrs. Bachmann site cuz I disagree about everything she talks about. So are you a closet gay leaching out to Perez because of this? Why don't you goggle Mrs. Bachmann find out the amount of money she receives for the govt. Handouts she believes no one should get: 250k in farm subsides, 137k for her husbands Christian counseling practice from Medicare and medicad this from a women that wants to take away Obamacare, she has 23 foster kids in which she receives $900 a month per child for govt. Aid and lastly her use of campaign funds for non campaign events! She is a tax attorney and knows the ends and outs of govt. Aid! Goggle it you'll see but until then why don't you just take yourself off Perez's site if Michelle knew you would be sent to her husbands practices and counseled to get the gay away!



  36. 36

    Re: TruthSquad – Why would he? I am sure he is happy who he is just like me! Why don't you go to a gay bar or parade and found out how happy gay people are with themselves? Furthermore as I have said to many on this site why the fuck are you on here if the gay thing bugs you? Perez is gay and seems happy to me. Start your own talk website?



  37. 37

    Re: truthgal – Why don't you google Mrs. Bachmann and she all the stuff she preaches that being she believes no one should get govt. Handouts but you'll see the 250k in farm subsides from the govt., 137k to her husbands Christian counseling group from medicare and medicaid this from a women who wants Obamacare taken away, she has 23 foster kids and gets $900 a month from the govt. And uses campaign money for non campaign events plus a tax attorney knowing the loopholes so you say Perez preaches hate well guess what this lady doesn't want you to get any handouts but herself! Goggle it! Furthermore, if you don't like Perez why are you on here? Go to Michelle Bachmanns website or better yet create your in website! Perez did….. LOl



  38. 38

    Re: Mad Dog – Go to MICHELLES site and donate your money plus maybe learn more words I.e. Education and see what she is about!



  39. 39

    Re: WhoDatSkank – Im Conservative but I love the gay community, but you need to work on your grammar. Did you even pass your GED? You are doing nothing for your argument. Instead, you look like an absolute idiot



  40. 40

    The jury is finally in: Michelle Bachmann is even stupider than Sarah Palin. It takes a real moron to make SP look good.



  41. 41

    Wow. Her husband sounds like a real tool. He runs Bachmann & Associates, a bunch of Christian therapists (he's not a physician — just loves the title "Dr.") who specialize in rehabbing gays. What a bunch of presumptuous pricks.



  42. 42

    Perez, if that's the worst you can find, we're in trouble. Go after the worst haters/offenders, not just politicians like Bachmann who disagree with you in a kind, eloquent manner.



  43. 43

    Fascinating… Well at least this came out now. She just pretty much forfeited any shot she had at the white house. Regardless of their personal views the president of the united states needs to be someone who is even keeled, and can maintain the values of freedom and equality that this nation was founded on… Not someone who claims someone elses sexuality is fabricated and then tries to beat the gay out of them using the bible. Until she has personally lived as every individual gay person in the united states it is really impossible for her to diagnose wether or not being gay is a disorder.
    On a side note, if being gay was curable why would anyone continue to be gay? I know a lot of very intelligent gay people and I am fairly certain none of them would choose to be a sexuality that allows them fewer rights than someone straight.
