Waukee, Iowa - Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and her husband Marcus attended a church service in Iowa on Sunday, at which the pastor called gays and lesbians "wicked" and "sinful."

There were about 100 people at the service at Point of Grace Church in Waukee, Iowa, reported NBC News.

Pastor Jeff Mullen spoke for 30 minutes about the church's beliefs and focused on homosexuality.

"We inherently know that homosexual behavior is immoral and unnatural," he said. "God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness."

Mullen then showed a video from a man who claimed he was saved from being gay and whose wife is now pregnant. The man said that God gave him "natural affection" for a woman.

The Bachmanns stayed in the audience the entire time and posed for pictures with Mullen afterward.

The Bachmanns have been questioned in the past couple months over Marcus Bachmann's therapy practice, which claims to be able to "cure" gays.

Michele Bachmann has also signed a pledge that if elected president, she would work to amend the constitution to prohibit gay marriage.
