Wow! It's like she researched to find EXACTLY what would keep me from voting for her!
The pledge is a two page document that is the work of the Family Leader, an Iowa-based group. “This debasement [of marriage] continues as a function of adultery; ‘quickie divorce;’… [and] anti-scientific bias which holds in complete absence of empirical proof that not non-heterosexual inclinations are genetically determined." They stand for "vigorous opposition to any redefinition of the Institution of Marriage…through statutory, bureaucratic, or court-imposed recognition of intimate unions which are bigamous, polygamous, polyandrous, same-sex." It also calls on candidates to be faithful to their spouses. Took them long enough to say something I agree with.
...wait a minute...it's time to play "Boot Michele Bachmann" again!
Bachmann, back in June, during the debate on CNN said that she wasn't going to push for a Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage because she felt that was a state's rights issue. "I do believe in the 10th Amendment and I do believe in self-determination for the states. I'm running for the presidency of the United States. And I don't see that it's the role of a president to go into states and interfere with their state laws.” Does this constitute a flip-flop? Why, yes, I believe it does!
Psst...hey, Bachmann? Don't look now, but the first two states to hold primaries for the R's, Iowa and New Hampshire? They've both legalized same sex marriage. Let me know how things work out for you.
