The founding fathers established a wall between church and state in this nation's Constitution. These radical methods are intended to convert patients into Christians and funding from the government not only legitimizes one particular faith over another, violating the Constitution, it is wrong to use taxpayer money to push controversial faith-based morality. Allowing taxpayer money to fund extreme Christian counseling like bible-based anti-gay therapy goes against the foundations of this nation.
Michelle Bachmann, who is running for for the GOP Presidential nomination, operates such a clinic with her husband, Marcus Bachmann, and that clinic has received federal and state money while using extreme Christian methods to push their specific theology in hopes to convert troubled individuals.
This is wrong on so many levels and must be stopped.
