    Michele And Marcus Bachmann's 'Ex-Gay' Clinic's Practices Described

    Michele And Marcus Bachmann's 'Ex-Gay' Clinic's Practices Described By Undercover Lesbian Filmmaker

    The title line wouldn't fit the whole thing

    Although Marcus Bachmann has continually denied that his Christian counseling clinic practices so-called "pray away the gay" therapy, yet another prominent LGBT activist is testifying to the contrary.

    Documentary filmmaker Kristina Lapinski, who is currently at work on "GAY U.S.A. the Movie," went undercover at Bachmann & Associates, the Minnesota-based Christian counseling clinic co-owned by Marcus and Michele Bachmann, and once again captured a staff member conducting what she described as "reparative" therapy.

    Lapinski says she played the part of "a confused 24 year old lesbian who had just moved from California to Minnesota to marry her long time male friend, Jake, all to please her Christian parents" while making an appointment. After speaking to counselor Sheila J. Marker about her situation, Lapinski says Marker then pulled out a Bible, informing her that God intended only men and women to come together, and captured the experience on a hidden pen camera.

    Lapinski recalled the experience, which she says left her "nauseous," in a blog on the "GAY U.S.A" website:
    "She asked if I believed in God, and I answered, 'yes.' She pulled out a bible, handed it to me and asked me to read a passage out loud. It was about love, and then she asked me to analyze it with her. We talked about love and commitment, and even though I have never been attracted to my fiancé, the commitment, she noted, was a form of love.
    She told me to follow God’s road. 'The Bible says one man one woman…two great halves come together….' and then spoke to some extent about a woman's duty to keep the man company…I found that oddly sexist.
    "She talked a lot about submitting to God, giving my life path over to him and letting him direct the way. She told me if I wanted to be happy I could “give my problems to the Lord and he could take them away.”
    We ended the session with a prayer and Sheila J. Marker asked the Lord to take away my 'desire' and allow me to pursue a relationship with my fiancé."
    The incident, of course, comes after activist John Becker secretly videotaped a therapy session at Bachmann's clinic that allegedly promised to cure his homosexuality last year and subsequently released it via his organization's website, Truth Wins Out.
    Just a gentle reminder that this is what we're calling a Republican these days.

    I think this is a touch misleading. The woman went in there under false pretenses, lied about her situation, as well as lying (I'm assuming) about her belief in God. If a person is predisposed to religion, or a belief in a Christian God, and walks into a Christian-affiliated clinic, of their own volition, under the guise of having their "gay problem" sorted wouldn't you think that the therapy might involve some sort of religious aspect? If people are predisposed to a religious background, or foundation, it seems reasonable to assume that if they themselves are actively seeking help or "treatment," as it were, for being gay that the concept of the Bible and its teachings might be used as a basis for "therapy?" I mean, the facility does acknowledge the fact that it has Christian affiliations. Lying to the people, telling them you're "confused" and that you do believe in God, what else would you expect from such a facility?

    I'd be more interested in what the "therapy" would have looked like if the woman had claimed no belief in God, and made it to seem that she was forced into coming into the clinic. I could be wrong, but maybe the "therapy" would look completely different.

    I'm not a Bachmann fan by any stretch, but this is such a non-story. The headline should have read "Christian-affiliated Clinic Utilizes Faith and the Bible in Therapy Sessions. Surprised?"

    When it comes down to it, this is nothing more than a publicity stunt that this woman is pulling in an effort to generate controversy and interest in her upcoming movie, which I'm sure will be a real gem.
    Hiding secret messages in your signature is fun. Kindly suck my balls, everybody.

    Well, you bypassed my statement, and reason for posting this, pretty adroitly. The point is that this (and hating Hispanics) is what the GOP has come to symbolize. This is but one example of news reports that I am reading with ever-increasing regularity.

    Just ignore Michelle Bachman, nobody here in Minnesota knows how she got elected anyways.

    She's generally regarded as a weird mutation.

    Marcus Bachmann's 11am buggery session surprisingly missing from the timeline - I guess the Filipino kid he flies in got the day off.
