Michele Bachmann's clinic aligned with Catholic teaching

Above, you just saw the ABC News video on Bachmann & Associates, a Christian counseling clinic owned by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and her husband, Dr. Marcus Bachmann.

While the issue is controversial, having this clinic is in line with the Catholic teaching, homosexuality is a sin, and needs to be treated. Before Vatican II, a priest may have referred a poor soul to a pastoral counselor for treatment for homosexuality. Now, I wish it were done more by bishops, who have the authority to place priests on a leave of absence for treatment to try to correct the problem. There are gay priests out there in Novus Ordo parishes, so watch out!

While the Bachmanns are Evangelical Lutherans, according to Wikipedia, Mrs. Bachmann may get Catholic GOP votes because of this. She also wears the flag pin, which is a boost if she wants to face Obama next year.
