Michele Bachmann's husband Marcus
Bachmann has said fighting against gay marriage would be a top issue
for him as first spouse.
During a campaign stop in Le Mars, Iowa
on Friday, Mr. Bachmann told supporters of his wife's presidential
aspirations that if Mrs. Bachmann becomes president, he would
dedicate himself to campaigning against abortion rights and marriage
rights for gay people, The
Caucus, a blog of The New York Times, reported.
Taking a swipe at Michele Obama's
crusade to help children become healthier, Mr. Bachmann said: “I've
decided my cause is not going to be happy meals.”
“We are going to be the
message-givers. We are going to get this message across: marriage is
between one man and one woman. We are going to promote families,”
Mr. Bachmann added.
Mr. Bachmann runs two Christian
counseling clinics in Minnesota. Critics have noted that counselors
at the clinics practice “reparative” therapy, which attempts to
alter a gay person's sexual orientation.
Michele Bachmann is a staunch opponent
of marriage equality. She has said she favors a constitutional
amendment banning gay marriage.
