Memphis, TN — Beginning May 1st of this year, the state of Tennessee is implementing a mandatory school program designed for all children grades K-12 to help homosexual males and females choose to become straight. The gay-to-straight conversion therapy treatment will be used in all of Tennessee’s 1,693 public school curriculum and is already gathering a large amount of support as well as those who disapprove of the new program.
Marcus Bachmann, husband to Michele Bachmann, is the president and founder of Counseling Care spoke with Fox News about their plans to help the gay children of Tennessee. “Since 2004 ‘Counseling Care’ has been helping thousands of teens and adults resolve their unwanted same-sex attractions. We bring the gay demons out of these individuals so they can become who god intended them to be. Our success and track record speaks for itself,” Bachmann said. “Facing the reality that you have unwanted homosexual feelings can cause tremendous turmoil – especially as a child whose feelings conflict with deeply held values, beliefs and life goals. But there is a way out. A path that leads them to resolve rather than fight their homosexual feelings. A path to authentic brotherhood and to our innate heterosexual masculinity.” Bachmann continued, “Our program in Minnesota has been so successful over the years; thanks to Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam we will now be able to help all of the gay children in Tennessee get well also.”
Haslam who signed off on the ‘Counseling Care’ gay-to-straight conversion therapy treatment told CNN he is excited about the program. “A child has to choose to become gay because god would never create a homosexual. It’s a choice, not something they were born with – and that is a proven fact,” Haslam said. “Can you imagine how much more productive these ‘now-straight’ children will be not always being bullied or wondering why god made them defective? Gay children will finally be able to learn who they truly are for once in their lives.” Haslam continued, “What we are doing in Tennessee is monumental. I can only hope and pray that other states follow suit.”
Though not everyone from Tennessee feels the same way as Haslam. 35-year-old Paul Horner, whose son Daniel is a 14-year-old homosexual, said he does not agree with the program. “I’m not one bit surprised by Haslam’s actions, not one bit. Typical Haslam, all in the name of “religious freedom,” Horner said. “My son Daniel is one of the nicest boys in the world. He is the most wonderful and loving child you could ever meet in your life. There is no problem with my son, he does not need to change. What does need to change is this conversion therapy program,” Horner continued. “I urge everyone to fight back before this curriculum takes effect in May. Call your congressman. Call your senator. We still have time to fix this wrong. Tell them you think Michele Bachman and Bill Haslam are insane, homophobic, backwards thinking, a*sholes. Tell them we do not want ‘Counseling Care’ in our schools. It’s not only a waste of tax payer money but it is fixing something that is not broken.”
The headquarters for ‘Counseling Care’ is located in Lake Elmo, Minnesota. The group’s gay-to-straight conversion therapy facilities span around the country and have been in operation since February of 2004. ‘Counseling Care’ can be reached at (651) 379-0444 with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
