ABC News’ Weak Bachmann Clinic ‘Sting’

ABC News went undercover into a Christian counseling center owned by Michele Bachmann and her husband. The undercover reporter claimed he was gay and didn’t want to be. The person working there told him to pray not to be gay and to start learning how to like women’s boobs. Controversial and a potential campaign game-changer? I guess it is according to ABC.

It’s only fair though, because ABC News also really dug into Obama’s business dealings and even did an undercover report about his controversial church and pastor during the 2008 campaign. Wait… no they didn’t… But rest assured that every aspect of Michele Bachmann’s life and career will be scrutinized, either fairly or unfairly.

Judge for yourself:

Noel Sheppard has this take:

Upon reflection concerning this segment, something has struck me as even more absurd about how “World News” reported these videos.

A man walks into a Christian clinic saying he has “feelings towards men and depression and asked if he could be rid of his homosexual urges through therapy and prayer.” And he’s outraged when a therapist at this Christian clinic tells him to pray?

That’s like walking into a McDonald’s complaining of hunger and being disgusted when the kid behind the counter suggests a Big Mac.

Exactly why is this news?

The only obvious solution would be to outlaw prayer at Christian clinics so as to avoid such horrors.
