In 2004, at the National Education Leadership Conference, then Minnesota State Senator Michele Bachmann gave a lecture on the effects of same-sex marriage on education, in which her views on homosexuality and LGBT people are vigorously aired.
"I am not here bashing people who are homosexuals, who are lesbians, who are bisexual, who are transgendered. We need to have profound compassion for the people who are dealing with the very real issue of sexual dysfunction in their life, and sexual identity disorders. This is a very real issue. It’s not funny, it’s sad. Any of you who have members of your family that are in the lifestyle—we have a member of our family that is. This is not funny. It’s a very sad life. It’s part of Satan, I think, to say this is gay. It’s anything but gay."
