In the last two weeks GOP Republican Presidential hopeful and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has come under siege by young activists speaking on the behalf of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.

Last week while stumping in Iowa, Bachmann went toe-to-toe with Jane Schmidt, a high school student who is the president of Waverly High School’s Gay-Straight Alliance.

Jane confronted the Presidential hopeful on her same-sex marriage stance and Bachmann replied, “We all have the same civil rights.” 

To which Jane then asked, “Then, why can’t same-sex couples get married?”

“They can get married,” Bachmann responded. “But they abide by the same law as everyone else. They can marry a man if they’re a woman. Or they can marry a woman if they’re a man.”

It was a back and forth exchange that went viral across the internet and didn’t put Bachmann in the best light.

Fast forward a week later. While attending a book signing, Bachmann was approached by eight-year-old activist Elijah, probably coached by his mother, who told Bachmann: “My mommy – Miss Bachmann, my mommy’s gay but she doesn’t need fixing.” 

Most likely Elijah’s comment stems from a statement Bachmann made in the past.

Herman Cain had to suspend his campaign after numerous sexual harassment allegations came from different women over the last month.

Now, with the recent videos of Bachmann having to defend her statements on gay rights, it’s safe to assume that the LGBT community may be painting a bull’s eye on Bachmann’s campaign.

It’s only going to get worse for Bachmann. When she’s out in public everyone’s will question her on gay rights which could take a detrimental toll on her campaign. 

Just how the allegations against Herman Cain didn’t stop, neither will questioning Bachmann on her stance on gay rights. Take a look at some of Bachmann’s most memorable quotes about sexuality on the following pages. 


Back in 2004 when Bachmann spoke at the EdWatch National Education Conference she said:

“If you’re involved in the gay and lesbian lifestyle, it’s bondage. It is personal bondage, personal despair and personal enslavement.”


At the same EdWatch National Education Conference Bachmann went on to say:

“You have a teacher talking about his gayness then student goes home and says “Mom! What’s gayness? We had a teacher talking about this today.” The mother says “Well, that’s when a man likes other men, and they don’t like girls.” The boy’s eight. He’s thinking, “Hmm. I don’t like girls. I like boys. Maybe I’m gay.” And you think, “Oh, that’s, that’s way out there. The kid isn’t gonna think that.” Are you kidding?

That happens all the time. You don’t think that this is intentional, the message that’s being given to these kids? That’s child abuse.”

Wow, that stretched longer than plastic man!


The biggest issue? How about curing AIDS or stopping worldwide terrorism? Certainly there are bigger issues than gay marriage.

“Gay marriage is probably the biggest issue that will impact our state and our nation in the last, at least, thirty years. I am not understating that.”


Back in 2004 while on the KKMS 980-​AM radio show Bachmann said:

“It isn’t that some gay will get some rights. It’s that everyone else in our state will lose rights. For instance, parents will lose the right to protect and direct the upbringing of their children and…they will be required to learn that homosexuality is normal, equal and perhaps you should try it. And that will occur immediately, that all schools will begin teaching homosexuality.” 


On the same radio show Bachmann says she loves homosexuals:

“This is not about hating homosexuals. I don’t. I love homosexuals.”


Our children are smarter than Bachmann believes them to be.

“Our children will be forced to learn that homosexuality is normal and natural and that perhaps they should try it, and that’ll be very soon in our public schools all across the state, beginning in kindergarten.”


Here Bachmann goes the Satan route:

“It’s part of Satan I think to say that this is “gay.” It’s anything but gay.”


Bachmann is always saying that gay marriage is either a ‘serious matter’ or a ‘the biggest issue’:

“This is a very serious matter, because it is our children who are the prize for this community, they are specifically targeting our children.”


Back in 2004 when Bachmann was touting her same-sex marriage ban amendment she said:

“The sex curriculum will be essentially be taught by the local gay community.”
