Bachmann, Santorum endorse right-wing pledge on homosexuality, marriage and slavery

She really can’t stop the hate, and the desperation to keep that husband of her’s in check.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is the first presidential candidate to sign a pledge written by a socially- conservative advocacy group in Iowa that, among other things, endorses the view that homosexuality is a choice rather than a biological trait.

The pledge, titled “The Marriage Vow: A Declaration of Dependence Upon Marriage and Family,” originated with a group led by Bob Vander Plaats, an unsuccessful GOP gubernatorial candidate and evangelical Christian leader in Iowa. The group, the Family Leader, is asking all the 2012 presidential hopefuls to sign it.

The pledge asks signatories to vow that they will be faithful to their spouses and to the U.S. Constitution. It condemns adultery, “quickie divorce,” infidelity, pornography, cohabitation and Islamic sharia law. It also suggests that more African-American children are born out of wedlock now than they were under slavery.

Of course, her absolutely fabulous husband Dr. Marcus Bachmann didn’t sign, but should have just to further MAKE SURE he doesn’t resort to any wide stances in public restrooms!

And, Santorum. Well, he’s Santorum.

And, yeah, no surprise for any rational person, the reference to slavery created a major controversy. But, Bachmann and Santorum were on board even with that slavery language included:

A social conservative Iowa group has retracted language regarding slavery from the opening of a presidential candidates’ pledge, amid a growing controversy over the document that Michele Bachmann had signed and Rick Santorum committed to.
