Organizers for Exodus International, an “ex-gay” organization, have announced that they will hold the national “Exodus Freedom” conference in St. Paul, Minnesota in July 2012. The last time the conference met in the Twin Cities (in 2004 under the name “Love Won Out), then-state Sen. Michele Bachmann (R) spoke at the conference’s opening and endorsed the conference in a press release in which she said, “Those of us working to safeguard marriage from redefinition by radical judges must inform our efforts with an understanding of the deep emotional wounds that many in the homosexual community carry.” Today, Marcus Bachmann confirmed that his clinic does practice “ex-gay” therapy.
