Only yesterday at ‘The Tonight’s Show,’ Jay Leno questioned Michele Bachmann about the ‘Pray The Gay Away’ slogan which she tried to make light of calling it a mid-life crisis…’Pray the Gray Away’ (the joke fell flat). She stirred the Gay Rights Activists with her remark so much that they decided to hold a protest against her. The Gay Rights Activists appeared at the California Republican Party convention on Friday and staged a Madonna flash-mob style dance routine.
They danced to Madonna’s “Like a Prayer,” in order to draw attention to the Minnesota congresswoman's anti-gay rhetoric and the controversial therapy methods reportedly practiced at the Christian counseling clinic that Bachmann and her husband owns. “Politicians like Rep. Bachmann need to understand that you can't simply ‘pray the gay away,’” The Courage Campaigners.
In the Tonight’s Show Jay Leno told Bachmann that, “It sounds like, if two gay people want to get married, that's their business, that doesn't concern us…Why is that even an issue?...I know gay families that are married, they have children. And they're wonderful people. It doesn't seem like they shouldn't be allowed to be happy…But I'm not going to change your mind on that one.”
This isn't the first time gay rights activists have targeted Bachmann. In June, Rachel E. B. Lang attempted to throw glitter on the congresswoman as she left the stage at the conservative RightOnline conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. ‘Glittering’ has been a popular stunt among gay rights activists. Newt Gingrich and Tim Pawlenty have also been glitter-bombed.
