The things we don’t talk about

In the gay community, it’s a fairly open secret that Michelle Bachmann’s husband, a minister, is an “ex-gay.” Because God forbid that a member of the media should ask if a Republican presidential candidate, someone who openly warns of the “gay agenda,” is married to a gay man.

I mean, it beats Charlie Sheen, right?

From Truth Wins Out, a post called “Completely Un-Gay Husband of Michele Bachmann Can Help Your Gay Child, For Money” back in September 2010:

Yesterday, we laughed and laughed at a candid video of Dr. Marcus Bachmann, husband of Michele, and the funny thing about the video didn’t even have to be stated, but simply was understood by writers and commenters alike! If the joke had a name, though, it would be “Mary.”

Well, let’s do that again, as we listen to Mr. Crazy Eyes on a radio show, telling us how to not be gay anymore, by way of Jesus/paying Mr. Crazy Eyes with money. Hell, let us live-blog it!

0:00 – 1:15: Boring
1:15: Christian counselors should not ask people how they feel! It is an abomination!
1:35: Christian counselors and friends should be calling their patients sinners!
2:00: We should be wise about from whom we receive “help.”
2:10: Sounds really gay when he references Better Homes & Gardens magazine. I guess they don’t get Dwell in rural Minnesota.
2:45: What do you say to your gay child? Dr. Bachmann suggests that adolescents will question their sexuality, and that this is normal! But this does not mean we should go down the Road of Homosexuality!
3:35: “Barbarians need to be educated, they need to be disciplined.” Great, gay kids are barbarians.
4:00: “Let’s fayth it, what’s our culture, what is our public school system doing today? They are giving FULL, WIDE OPEN doors” to encourage kids to think and do gay things.
