Marcus Bachmann Defends Ex-Gay Therapy At Controversial Clinic
Retiring Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann’s husband Marcus is defending the dangerous, pseudo-scientific, practice of sexual orientation conversion therapy that he conducts at his clinic Counseling Care, previously known as Bachmann & Associates.
Speaking with Jan Markell and Jill Martin Rische on “Understanding the Times” this weekend, Bachmann said that he was angry that his clinic faced criticism after several reports surfaced about ex-gay therapy taking place there.
Bachmann insisted that “we are people of ethics” who were only attacked for trying to “speak truth,” adding that “people will choose, they will ultimately choose what they are going to do with their life.”
He also said his clinic faced criticism simply for “creating a safe place” for LGBT people:
Once the far-left understood that we were actually creating a safe place, a place where people who said I have this issue with same-sex attraction, this desire. I’m a believer, I’m a person of faith and it’s conflicting with my values systems. Anyone who would walk alongside and then encourage that person’s values systems and their beliefs and bring that in alignment, that is like blasphemous to the other side. How dare you even consider being involved in someone who has decided or is desiring that to influence in any way shape or form another side in the book on this one?
