Rep. Michelle Bachmann’s Husband: “Gays are Barbarians Who Need to Be Educated”

Thursday, June 30, 2011

Rep. Michelle Bachmann isn’t the only member of the Bachmann family bringing the crazy. Hubby, Dr. Marcus Bachmann, who runs a Christian counseling center that gives advice to parents worried their kids might be gay says, “Gays are barbarians who need to be educated.”

Watch It:

I don’t know if the ex-gay services Dr. Marcus Bachmann offers has driven any gay or lesbian teen in Minnesota to commit suicide, a la, Dr. George Rekers, but I think it is very important we notify the Minnesota Board of Psychology that one of their own is a loose canon.

    Dr. Marcus Bachmann is an dangerous homophobe. Just because he has a degree to practice doesn’t mean he should be seeing patients of any kind. The American Psychiatric Association Board of Trustees voted to remove homosexuality as a disorder category from the DSM back in 1973. So his views are uninformed and ignorant of the governing body who regulates psychiatry. He needs to be viewed by the Minnesota board and his license pulled.

  2. Harry says:

    Did you hear Dr. Marcus Bachmann’s voice? Total queen. Methinks Michelle functions as his beard.

  3. Sayingwhatneedsaying says:

    What a sick bastard this guys….. and probably Gay himself!

  4. I don’t even understand what Dr. Marcus Bachmann is talking about.

    Barbarians who need to be educated? Sounds like he’s into BDSM.

  5. Sayingwhatneedsaying says:

    Bachshit…. you’re wrong!!!! It’s you chrustians who are the Barbarians……….

  6. Sayingwhatneedsaying says:

    Where did he get his Medical license….. at Liberty University???? Jerry Falwell’s college……….

  7. Peace Nick says:

    Don’t forget the federal farm subsidies the Bachmanns received while Michelle rails against the very thing enriching her and her husband’s lifestyle. This broad is a nutcase and a hypocrite and her husband sounds like he got his psychology degree at the University of Uganda.

    The Tea Party really knows how to pick them!

  8. Mets Fan says:

    In the words of Cee Lo Green, “FU” Michelle Bachmann.

  9. Seabec says:

    The threshold of insanity has finally been reached.

    What is wrong with the Tea Party that they embrace this nutcase woman and her husband? No one in their right mind could possibly believe Michelle Bachmann is suited for any elected office and her husband shouldn’t be allowed patient suffering with mental health issues.

  10. Marcus says:

    I do not think he is a licensed psychologist. On his website he claims a “Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology” from Union Graduate Institute in Ohio. They are a correspondence school and have never given such a degree. They have a Ph.D. in “Interdisciplinary Studies” and an unaccredited Psy.D. At one time they gave a two-year Ph.D. in “Arts and Sciences.”

    Most likely his license (if he has one) is based on his MA from Regent University. He doesn’t list any license, though, preferring that people assume he must be a psychologist because of the Ph.D.

    If he is not licensed, he should be brought up on charges. If he is licensed (more likely), his licensing board should be made aware of the way that he misrepresents his degree.

  11. DMason says:

    The anti-gay therapists have long been discredited as dangerous hacks who do far more harm than help. They ply methodology that ends up destroying their patient and yes, many end up committing suicide. It’s a ghastly, 11th century approach to a non-problem.

  12. Randy Arroyo says:

    I’ve never been able to grasp why people like Michelle and Marcus Bachmann are obsessed with gay people? They seem to devote an inordinate amount of time thinking about us. I rarely give two cents of thought or energy to straight people and I don’t think of ways to change them. Straight people can be very peculiar.

  13. Jolly Roger says:

    And we’re paying this crock of shit. Separation of WHAT and WHAT?!?

  14. The Real Adam says:

    “Gays are barbarians who need to be educated.” – Dr. Marcus Bachmann

    ROFLMAO! Methinks the good doctor is projecting. Members of the Tea Party meet the definition of “barbarian,” not gays.

  15. Jolly Roger says:

    I don’t get it either, Randy. Native cultures more-or-0less treated gay people like they treated anyone else. They also seem to have recognized that the gay tendency is something one is born with, so gay kids weren’t pressed into behaving as something they were not inclined to be. It wasn’t till the white folks and their Bibles arrived that homophobia came to the New World.

  16. Robyn says:

    I think Dr. Marcus saw 300 and Gladiator one too many times to come up with that comment.

  17. Eric Equality Kuntz says:

    My Gaydar is screaming. Dr. Marcus Bachmann is as gay as Liberace.

  18. fran says:

    The guy has a PhD, runs a mental health clinic & is married to Michelle Batshit!

    Nuff’ said.

  19. lynn says:

    Is he a friend of Ted’s (wink)?

  20. feminazi says:

    Gays are barbarians? Is he out of his mind? The GOP and the Tea Party are the barbarians.

  21. Glen Wright says:

    I saw NBC cover this story about 30min ago on TV.

    Here’s the reality on mainstream Christian counseling:
    Christian counseling “is for Christians” who face various struggles. A Christian is one who has surrendered their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ. A Christian holds to God’s word and holds to the truths of scripture. Marcus Bachmann obviously is a Christian counselor (It says it right on the sign to his office). Those who are in the homosexual lifestyle who consult any mainline Christian counselor will receive Biblical counseling spoken in love. According to God’s word homosexuality is a sin and falls right in line with other sins such as adultery, lust etc… Homosexuality is not God’s plan. That is not only Biblical but obvious to see in nature and in the whole matter of pro-creation. I commend Bachmann for seeking to make a real difference. This is not “homophobia” or “hate speech” this is a counselor devoting his life to making a positive Biblical impact in the lives of believers.

  22. Scott Berger says:

    Mr. Bachmann does NOT have a license to practice therapy, Psychology, or do counseling in the State of Minnesota. Also, he legally cannot oversee the therapy of anyone with whom his licensed staff is working. He may do spiritual counseling as a minister if he has a congregation, but that is not what his own website indicates.

  23. BoBuck says:

    Republikant/gop/conservative/tea baggies live their lives in ignorance and fear, and are only content when forcing their ignorance and fear on others.

    If you believe in any kind of deity you are insane, and NOT a fully developed human

    Republikant/gop/conservative/tea baggies could be so much more
    If thinking wasn’t such a chore

    Republikant/gop/conservative/tea baggies are full of wit
    Most are dim
    And the rest are nit

    PS…bachmann and her closet queen hubby are serious crazy whack-jobs, and for these mutant sub humans to be allowed to have any kind of voice is repugnant. She is an ex irs attorney that went out of her way to punish the poor, and her in denial closet queen hubby is taking Medicare payments for his fraudulent practice…these two are the worst examples of what is passing for human these days

  24. Scott Berger says:

    The only way Marcus Bachmann can legally practice counseling of any kind is with a license issued from one of the four State of Minnesota Boards. Those being Marriage and Family, Psychology, Counseling, or Social Work. He cannot hide behind a holey cloak of Ministerial Counseling because he does not have a congregation and has not gone through any accredited ministerial training. If he had, he would have posted that information on his bio. It is illegal for him to do any Clinical Counseling, nor can he supervise the counseling casework of any of his licensed staff members. He never completed the required supervised portion of Board Licensing, in order to receive a license to legally practice in Minnesota. He is practicing illegally, a scofflaw of the laws of Minnesota.

  25. Michael says:

    “Gays are barbarians who need to be educated.” No, it’s you, the close-minded Christians who need to be educated. Being gay, in this century, isn’t wrong. Being a homophobe is. So, please, “educate” me with your all knowing knowledge of us “homosexual barbarians”, and HOW we need to be educated. Please, I’m intrigued.
