It is hard to believe, but the Michelle Bachmann scandal may actually get much worse. Her husband claims to be a PhD and treats gays for their 'homosexual sickness' as a mental health doctorate level professional.
Yet according to the following press release, his PhD was not accredited when he graduated and the way he is 'treating' gays is not approved by any legitimate professional mental health association or body. Marcus Bachmann is denying that he treats gays this way, but an undercover investigation reveals that he actually did do this, and may still be doing it.
From the above press release, the investigator talks about how "there is fraud rampant throughout Bachmann & Associates that could lead to federal charges against Marcus Bachmann and his Christian counselors. For example:
(1) if he has a religious test (he advertises that all 27 counselors are “Christian” and “Christ-centered, very strong in out understanding of who the Almighty Counselor is, and we rely on god’s [Christian] word and the Almighty Counselor” Bachmann is breaking all EEO rules on discrimination.
(2) Bachmann has claimed that his oath is “first do no harm” from the Greek ἐπὶ δηλήσει δὲ καὶ ἀδικίῃ εἴρξειν (that Bachmann does not know) and is a part of the Hippocratic Corpus (http://www.eastridges.com/wesley/primum.html) and then makes broad statements that gays and lesbians are “barbarians [who] need to be educated, need to be disciplined” implying the use of torture be it spanking, deprivation of food, sleep, and so forth.
(3) Michele Bachmann has gone on record noting that any person who receives state and federal funds are engaged in a socialistic system, yet both Marcus and Michele have received such government subsides.
(4) There are numerous other questions including about licensing, regulatory inspections, insurance and what happens if a patient is harmed, how young the patients are when they come to the clinic, and so forth (an excellent list is at http://thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/10-questions-bachmanns-husband-must-answer-about-christian-counseling/politics/2011/07/07/23180)."
The Tea Party that Michelle Bachmann is leading is fighting to cut Medicare and Medicaid payments or to get rid of the whole program all together and substitute a voucher program that would privatize it completely.
So why is her husband collecting payment from this same 'evil' socialist government program for treating 'gayness' as a mental health disease that supposedly can be cured by Christian focused ‘treatment’? And what happens when this treatment does not work, and the gay person being treated gets depressed and commits suicide?
Could he be falsely claiming payments for being a doctor, in order to get some of those evil 'socialist welfare' payments from a federal government agency? Maybe someone should look into this (Click here to read more about this horror story)...
After reading the above article, we can see that the 'treatment' of gayness as a sickness can easily lead one into a bizarre world of fundamentalism where evil is seen as good and good is seen as evil.. It is a fascinating story of preachers who sometimes hide and then project their own homosexuality as a 'sin' onto others. Read about the many examples of this at the link above.
The further one gets into this the more one gets into things like 'corrective rape' of lesbians and the justified murder of four year olds who 'might be gay'. (God told him to do it.) Discrimination, disparagement and putting down of gays and lesbians with policies such as the Don't Ask, Don't Tell in the military, is all justified in the name of God and the Bible in many fundamentalist churches, the Tea Party and people who fund them, such as the Koch Brothers. Yet, according to the press release above, this anti-gay wording actually does not even exist in the Bible, if one goes back and looks at the original wording in other languages.
Even though the DODT policy has officially been reversed under President Obama, Tea Party members and Christian fundamentalists are fighting to overturn this equal treatment under the law policy.
Christian Fundamentalists, Tea Party activists and Republicans seem to be working together to make gays 'evil' first of all. Most of them seem to be working together on campaigns to keep gays and lesbians out of the military, and to keep gays from marrying each other as well (Mormons and Catholics especially). What is harder to understand is how being and married hurts fundamentalists. How do gays marrying each other affect them in a negative way?
It is also interesting how fundamentalists are almost 100% opposed to ‘activist judges’, but in the same breath that they passionately rail against these supposed 'activist' judges, they are also fighting hard to get judges into the Supreme Court or state courts that will ban gay marriage and reverse things like women’s right to choose, minimum wage standards, etc..
The things that fundamentalists are in favor of are almost all religious moral stands that have to be IMPOSED on everyone else, by taking away freedoms.
So what happens when people outside of their church do not believe in rigid, purist, fundamentalist created anti-alcohol (remember Prohibition?), anti-drug, anti-gambling, anti-immigrant, anti-freedom, anti-democracy, pro-slavery, anti-women’s rights laws?
Are these things not all moral activism coming out of fundamentalist religion belief systems? Fundamentalists make up about 25% of the total population, but they want their system of religion and moralistic beliefs IMPOSED by law on EVERYONE.
Slowly but surely, these Sharia type laws and rules have been repealed or reversed over several thousand years, as the many negative consequences of these moralistically restrictive and freedom abolishing laws have been revealed. Hopefully, this trend will continue.
