Deperate Media Sharks Find Some Chum: Bachmann Cures Gays


If Bachmann Scares the Media-Owning Elite This Much, I'll Vote For Her!

The media barrage against Michele Bachmann reminds me of sharks who have finally come upon some chum in the water. They have been restlessly circling for months now- waiting and watching, waiting and watching. Finding nothing, they attacked her looks, her intelligence, her religion (can you imagine them attacking a Muslim candidate’s religion? Ha!) and now, finally, their prayers have been answered.

In the Absence of Proof, The Desperate News Elite Must Make Things Up Against Bachmann

Or, at least that is what they would have you believe. Chris Matthews on MSNBC, Anderson Cooper on CNN, Jon Stewart on his comedy show- oh, you know the list by now- have all been flinging accusations of cruelty, dishonesty & hate at both Sen. Bachmann & her husband over an undercover ‘sting’ video that shows a counselor from the Bachmann religious clinic attempting to help a person who no longer wanted to act or think gay.

The funny this is this: they never show the whole interview. They literally show about 5 second sound bites that to me, are relatively harmless. The counselor is heard to say things like homosexual behavior can be stopped through prayer and techniques, homosexual thoughts can be replaced by heterosexual thoughts through practice and prayer, and that the counselor admits to not being an expert in the area. The counselor is upbeat, encouraging and positive in the clips shown. The session seems extremely loose and unscripted and seem to be part of a much longer conversation which is never shown. I wonder why? Not once is the counselor seen to negate the person in the interview. Not once is the counselor seen to say that the person was ‘wrong’ or bad in any way to practice homosexuality. Not once does the counselor say that homosexuality is a sin.

  1. Totally agree, Shortie. Especially when, what they actually do, is show homosexuals how to pray, and how to use prayer to deal with all the issues homosexuals have. I don’t understand why this is such a big issue. If a gay person comes into a psychologist’s office with problems, and they have done any homework on the psychologist, they should know that this is a Christian man. And one of the first things a Christian man will do is suggest prayer as part of the solution to the problem. And the truth is that prayer is a solution to any problem. Not that it’s the same thing, but by the looks of it, smoking is one of the hardest things in the world to give up. There’s prescriptions, there’s nicotine patches, gums, etc. If someone wants to give it up, really wants to, all they need to really do is give it to God in prayer. Exactly what I did three years ago after smoking for 41 years, and claiming that I would never quit because I enjoyed it too much. I wanted to stop, but that enjoyment factor would always kick in.
    Being a believer in the power of prayer is such a scandal, isn’t it?

  2. No, David, it is not a scandal. That is why MSNBC had to provide the context all around that tiny, short clip where the counselor is seen doing nothing wrong whatsoever. There was no story to see. So they made one up. They spoke of reparative therapy for gays. I don’t know what that is, but I sure didn’t see anything in the ‘sting’ video that looked wrong. Just prayer and encouragement to the guy seeking to change his behavior. cheers, David.

  3. I was being sarcastic. I was appalled that such a story even broke as ‘news’.

  4. oh, I knew that, David. I was just adding to your commentary…
