Leno questions Bachmann’s desire to “pray away the gay”
GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann defended the two clinics she runs with her husband on a recent episode of Leno. Asking Bachmann why gay people shouldn’t have the right to be happily married, Leno said: “That whole ‘pray the gay away’ thing, What? I don’t get that.” She’s offering what she calls a Christian counseling service. The clinics have come under fire because they use a controversial therapy that encourages gay and lesbian patients to change their sexual orientation. Bachmann said the clinics did not discriminate, but repeated her position that marriage should be between a man and a woman.
