Michele Bachmann’s Top Ten Anti-Gay Quotes

Post image for Michele Bachmann’s Top Ten Anti-Gay Quotes

Michele Bachmann (R-MN), founder of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Tea Party Caucus, belongs to a denomination of the Lutheran Church and has been the foster parent to 23 children. Her radical, bigoted, anti-gay religious views dictate her political policies and focus.

In 2004, Michele Bachmann, then Minnesota state Senator Bachmann, attempted to get an anti-gay marriage amendment on the Minnesota ballot as a voter referendum to write discrimination directly into her state’s constitution. It failed. Most of these quotes are from Bachmann in 2004.

Here are Michele Bachmann’s top ten anti-gay statements:

  • “It’s part of Satan I think to say that this is “gay.” It’s anything but gay.” — Senator Michele Bachmann, speaking at EdWatch National Education Conference, November 6, 2004.
  • “If you’re involved in the gay and lesbian lifestyle, it’s bondage. It is personal bondage, personal despair and personal enslavement.” — Senator Michele Bachmann, speaking at EdWatch National Education Conference, November 6, 2004.
  • You have a teacher talking about his gayness. (The elementary school student) goes home then and says “Mom! What’s gayness? We had a teacher talking about this today.” The mother says “Well, that’s when a man likes other men, and they don’t like girls.” The boy’s eight. He’s thinking, “Hmm. I don’t like girls. I like boys. Maybe I’m gay.” And you think, “Oh, that’s, that’s way out there. The kid isn’t gonna think that.” Are you kidding? That happens all the time. You don’t think that this is intentional, the message that’s being given to these kids? That’s child abuse. — Senator Michele Bachmann, speaking at EdWatch National Education Conference, November 6, 2004.
  • “Don’t misunderstand. I am not here bashing people who are homosexuals, who are lesbians, who are bisexual, who are transgender. We need to have profound compassion for people who are dealing with the very real issue of sexual dysfunction in their life and sexual identity disorders.” — Senator Michele Bachmann, on homosexuality as a mental disorder, speaking at EdWatch National Education Conference, November 6, 2004.
  • “It isn’t that some gay will get some rights. It’s that everyone else in our state will lose rights. For instance, parents will lose the right to protect and direct the upbringing of their children. Because our K-12 public school system, of which ninety per cent of all youth are in the public school system, they will be required to learn that homosexuality is normal, equal and perhaps you should try it. And that will occur immediately, that all schools will begin teaching homosexuality.” – Senator Michele Bachmann, on what will happen if her same-sex marriage ban amendment fails to pass in 2004, appearing as guest on radio program “Prophetic Views Behind The News,” hosted by Jan Markell, KKMS 980-AM, March 6, 2004
  • “This is a very serious matter, because it is our children who are the prize for this community, they are specifically targeting our children.” — Senator Michele Bachmann, on the gay community and same-sex marriage, appearing as guest on radio program “Prophetic Views Behind The News”, hosted by Jan Markell, KKMS 980-AM, March 20, 2004.
  • “The sex curriculum will be essentially by taught by the local gay community.” — Senator Michele Bachmann, if her same-sex marriage ban amendment does not pass in 2004, appearing as guest on radio program “Prophetic Views Behind The News”, hosted by Jan Markell, KKMS 980-AM, March 20, 2004.
  • “And what a bizarre time we’re in, Jan, when a judge will say to little children that you can’t say the pledge of allegiance, but you must learn that homosexuality is normal and you should try it.” — Senator Michele Bachmann, appearing as guest on radio program “Prophetic Views Behind The News”, hosted by Jan Markell, KKMS 980-AM, March 6, 2004.
  • “Our children will be forced to learn that homosexuality is normal and natural and that perhaps they should try it, and that’ll be very soon in our public schools all across the state, beginning in kindergarten.” — Senator Michele Bachmann, appearing as guest on radio program “Prophetic Views Behind The News”, hosted by Jan Markell, KKMS 980-AM, March 6, 2004.
  • “We are wide open and vulnerable and in all likelihood an activist judge will strike down our Defense of Marriage Act, our state law against gay marriage, this year. And in all likelihood, we will have gay marriage in 2004 in Minnesota , if we don’t get this amendment on the ballot for November.” — Senator Michele Bachmann, appearing as guest on radio program “Prophetic Views Behind The News”, hosted by Jan Markell, KKMS 980-AM, March 20, 2004.

Here’s a bonus one:

  • “This is not about hating homosexuals. I don’t. I love homosexuals.” — Senator Michele Bachmann, appearing as guest on radio program “Prophetic Views Behind The News”, hosted by Jan Markell, KKMS 980-AM, March 20, 2004.

In 2009, Bachmann helped raise funds for You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International, a Christian youth ministry that holds assemblies in public schools and was founded by the Bradlee Dean, the preacher who was recently forced to stop delivering his invocation in the Minnesota legislature because it so offended even the Republicans there.

Many of these quotes were said to radio host and founder of Olive Tree Ministries, Jan Markell, whose website warns,

“It says in Revelation 13 that there will some day be a one-world system; a one-world government. Some have termed this “the new world order”. Another term heard frequently that means the same thing is “globalism”. Various organizations are playing into this. The leading ones include the United Nations, the European Union, and NATO, but more minor players would be world trade organizations like the “North American Free Trade Association” (NAFTA). The Antichrist will be the chief globalist and will head up this one-world system during the Tribulation. The stage is being set.”

Interesting article but was very disappointed that all of the quotes were from 2004. This article must have been recycled. How about some new quotes from Blathering Bachmann on the same subject.

David Badash July 10, 2011 at 1:49 pm

Good observation. It's not "recycled," it's that Bachmann's has been very strategic about openly attacking the LGBT community since her days as a State Senator.

MiddleGrounds May 9, 2013 at 7:47 pm

It's not recycled…she's a one trick pony. That's about all she knows HOW to say.

Re Jan Markell's assertion that we're drifting towards one world government:

Based upon what I've learned about this so far she is correct. The New World Order is comprised of an international central banking cartel (which includes the privately-owned U.S. Federal Reserve) nominally headed by the banking dynasty that once financed/controlled the British Empire + a firmament of global corporations (the Military-Industrial Complex) and it is indeed amalgamating countries under one system of control by manipulating the governments (and the mainstream press) of supposedly sovereign nations via inflation, debt and deflation. Here's a page of links I've collected on the blatant bank fraud which led to the crash of 2008 and how it ties in with the NWO's globalization plans:

GOP vs Dems: Two Sides Of The Same Federal Reserve Coin http://howgaysarebeingusedtocreateatheocracy.blog

On the other hand we have the heretical & theocratic New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) a.k.a. Dominionism/Kingdom Now/Replacement Theology movement which has not only gradually infiltrated U.S. politics at all levels since the mid-1970's, but is also seeking global domination:

HOW GAYS ARE BEING USED TO CREATE A THEOCRACY http://howgaysarebeingusedtocreateatheocracy.blog

While both the NWO and the NAR have similar aims I am currently leaning towards the belief that they are competing with one another. But one thing is certain: the whole Left vs Right political paradigm is a scam to distract the public's attention from who & what is really gripping the reins of power–the purse strings.

Think about it. No matter what the GOP or Dems say about peripheral/social issues, when it comes to decisions which continue to concentrate more wealth into fewer hands they always side with the rich. The golden rule…

Are you a LaRouche follower?

She seems awfully hung up on sex. Children will be told "homosexuality" is OK and they should "try it?" What the heck does she mean by "try it"? And does this mean that she thinks kids should be told "heterosexuality" is great and they should "try it?".

Just remember the pumpkinhead who's saying these things. Everything will become crystal clear.

Baby, we were born this way!

Bachman's understanding of human sexuality is matched by her understanding of climate change ("CO2 is a natural byproduct of nature …"). The basic principle she operates on is that you don't have to understand something at all to speak forcefully about it or pass legislation affecting it.

What a retard…nuff said, she doesn't warrant anymore media attention

Diogenes_Arktos May 15, 2013 at 1:53 am

The religious affiliation is not accurate. She was a member of the ultra-conservative Wisconsin Synod. She left the Lutherans for a nondenominational (right-wing) Christian church before she ran for public office. I suspect the reason was the position of women in the Wisconsin Synod.
