I was going to make fun of the Family Leader Pledge, but after I read it, I was too busy trying to catch my breath to laugh. The very idea of any group proposing such an outrageous so-called "pledge" for candidates to sign is appalling. These people are seriously deranged, and so are any candidates who agree to sign this abomination. Talk about trying to legislate morality! ''
This document is an all-out attack on gays, with a few snipes at Mormons, big government, Sharia law, abortion, marital fidelity and jaywalking. O.K. I made that up about jaywalking.
Naturally, Michelle Bachmann was first lin line to sign it. It wouldn't surprise me to discover that her gay-hating husband authored it. He's rabid on the subject of gays. He seems to believe homosexuals can just pray the gay away. Fool.
It was gratifying to see that there are a few Republican candidates who have just enough sense to avoid this pledge like the plague, in spite of their natural affection for politically-based pledges. They propose at least one per election, starting with the Contract for America, devised by Newt Gingrich. Even Newt won't sign this one.
Not that I will be voting for any of them. Heh-heh. But, you knew that.
