Marcus Bachmann, the husband of GOP presidential hopeful Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), said in a radio interview unearthed by ThinkProgress that “barbarians need to be educated” when asked how parents should deal with their homosexual children.
“They need to be disciplined,” he said last year on Point of View Radio Talk Show. “Just because someone feels it or thinks it doesn’t mean that we are supposed to go down that road. That’s what is called the sinful nature.”
“And let’s face it: what is our culture, what is our public education system doing today?” he continued. “They are giving full, wide-open doors to children, not only giving encouragement to think it but to encourage action steps.
That’s why when we understand what truly is the percentage of homosexuals in this country, it is small. But by these open doors, I can see and we are experiencing, that it is starting to increase.”
Marcus runs a Christian-based counseling center in Minnesota.

Michele Bachmann Defends Medicaid Funds To Husband Marcus Bachmann’s Clinic
AP/The Huffington Post Posted:
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Republican presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann is deflecting questions about federally subsidized health dollars that have flowed to her husband’s mental health clinic.
As the tea party hero tours the nation attacking the size of federal government, the Minnesota congresswoman has come under heightened scrutiny over public dollars flowing to family business interests. That includes $137,000 that Bachmann and Associates has received for treating patients in Medicaid-backed programs.
