I’ll have to take your word for that, however I believe guilt is still a big reason people stay in the lifestyle.

We can’t even get step 1 down here in America (humble? - while our leader is so arrogant?)

The taring and feathering has begun.

Exactly. This is 100% predictable. The MSM helps to build up MB to "tweak" SP (or so they think). Once MB gets a lot more visibility and rising poll numbers to the top...BOOM, they knock her down. I predict that MB will drop out of the race because of what the MSM will do to her and her family now that she has arrived at/near the top of the GOP polls. I predict that Perry will also NOT run out of fear for what they will dig up on him. That will leave the door wide open for SP, who will ultimately answer the call and RUN. Yes, she'll run Zer0bama right into the ground.

They don't like it because they have been taken over by leftist with agenda that is no more credible than leftists promoting global warming nonsense.

If you want to spew their leftist crap here, you should for the ignoramus you are.

Was anybody forced to go to this clinic? No, so every single person who went there wanted to get help. Did they claim to have a 100% success rate? I don’t know but I doubt it. Does any psychiatrist or therapist claim 100% success rates? No!

The bottom line is that the media will tear her a new one with this . The whole Gay thing is out of control and is a major force in society now.Everybody now is so PC with gays that it’s sickening . They will say she is unfit for office because of this and it will do her chances in big time. . It’s ok to sit in a racist pig church for 20 years , It’s ok to hang out with known domestic terrorist but this , this will undo her because she’s not a liberal.

He has a PhD from a correspondence school.

A realistic view is to treat it like any other bad habit. Some may find it surprisingly easy to kick, others may find it a “thorn in the flesh” that calls for recurring skirmishes against Satan until the day they die. If the Bachmanns were promising a rose garden to every comer, that was wrong. However far be it from the MSM to provide anything close to a realistic portrayal of spiritual battles. The unbelieving public would find that dishwater dull.

I pray ABC has the brass to respond to my e-mail. Their pandering to the queernation is a convenient but invalid argument.Who hasn’t known homosexuals who insist they were born that way but are no longer homosexual? who doesn’t know someone who was happily heterosexual /married with children and all that who decided to walk on the dark side of fornication and adultery?Being Gay is NOT at all like being black-or hispanic-or female-it very much is closer aligned to alcohol/drug addiction.

The homos have seen how successful race baiting has been in American society, with any and all debate being instantly shut down with an accusation of “racism”,

and they want some o’ that.

Mr. Bachmann has previously denied that his clinic offers "ex-gay" treatments, known as reparative therapy.

This is the problematic part. There is starting to be a consistent pattern with the Bachmanns denying something, only to have it later pointed out that it was indeed true.

Not sure what you mean, leftist crap. I think you misunderstood me. I was trying to point out that the American Psychiatrist Association want to charge money to not cure a problem, that Bachman is successfully curing for free. I believe that trying to help people trapped in a gay lifestyle being called bad IS leftist crap, that the APA is on-board with the leftist crap is my point.

I applaud Bachman for helping people, and respect her for doing so without milking it for political points. My opinion for her has gone up considerably.

The American Psychiatrist Association should be a Politicaly neutral group, but obviously is not. I would point out that the success rate of the APA vs the Christian Church in freeing people from the destructive homosexual lifestyle is appalling. Psychiatrists are woefully inept. It is funny that they, of all subjects would not touch this issue with a ten foot pole. But then, hatred of morality seems to draw them out like bears to beehives.

I would believe that Obama has “a cult of personality” because I have seen the teenagers swoon in the front rows. I however think that with Palin it is a Cult of IDEA’s, not personality. Not once have I ever seen any people swoon in her meetings.

Note that in the case of Obama they say they love his idea's of Hope or Change, but cannot define what that change is, or what they are hoping for. Nor has he accomplished a single thing that the Obama followers can point to and understand enough to discuss with any logic or reason. Every thing is based on emotion. But with the pro Palin people you ask them and they come up with all kinds of things that she has said that they like. They end up discussing issues, not the person. This is a clear indication that the people that follow Palin’s political moves are not a personality cult.

The funny thing is that the term “Cult of Personality” applied to Palin is right out of the Obama party talking points. Those who tend to knowingly quote it tend to be the very Cult members they distain because they have never thought out the point that they are mindlessly repeating. It is, after all, one of the signs of cultish behavior.
