Bachmann’s Husband – Clinics Are Not Anti- Gay

ABC News via YouTube

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The husband of Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann is defending his family’s Christian counseling business over questions about a gay activist’s undercover video that apparently shows a counselor offering therapy to help a gay man become heterosexual.

Marcus and Michele Bachmann own clinics in Lake Elmo and Burnsville. Marcus Bachmann says the clinics’ counselors are not focused on converting gays to heterosexuals.

The video by the gay advocacy group Truth Wins Out was first aired Monday by ABC News. In it, a gay rights activist poses as a conflicted man who wants to be converted to heterosexuality and, according to the video, is offered counseling to build his attraction to women.

Marcus Bachman, whose business has collected government funding from Medicaid-backed programs, says counselors follow the wishes of patients and don’t force any treatment.
