UPDATE: Michele Bachmann is not alone in the signing of this radical pledge. I’m sure it will come as no surprise that Rick Santorum has signed the pledge as well. He didn’t really have a snowball’s chance in Hell of winning the GOP nomination, but Michele did. According to Huffington Post, Tim Pawlenty is “reviewing the pledge.” Jon Huntsman has balls, he’s NOT doing it. I’d like to note here that, also according to Huffington Post, Santorum approached the radical Christian group, as did Bachmann.
The “Christian” group – Family Leader – has published a pledge that Presidential Candidate, Michele Bachmann, has signed. The pledge includes “Personal fidelity to my spouse.” as well as, “Official fidelity to the U.S. Constitution, supporting the elevation of none but faithful constitutionalists as judges or justices.” The latter statement is humorous, as portions of the rest of the statement are totally against the First Amendment of the Constitution: “Rejection of Sharia Islam and all other anti-woman, anti-human rights forms of totalitarian control.” The President of the United States doesn’t get to reject Islam. We have religious freedom in this nation. In fact, the Pledge later admits that we have religious freedom. Apparently, they just care about their own religious freedom and no one else’s.
Wait, there’s more…
The group shows their true race colors:
Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African American baby born after the election of the USA’s first African-American President.
That would be quite a feat – if it were true. They totally ignore the fact that slave children were often ripped from their mothers to be sold somewhere else and, many times, were the Masters’ own children to boot. Of course, Bachmann has already proven that she knows nothing about our nation’s history, especially when it comes to slavery. And, the study they were quoting? Completed in 2005 and only went back to 1880 – long after slavery ended.
Isn’t it time that we put a stop to the religious fanatics in this country? Shouldn’t we all be able to live in freedom?
When it comes time to vote for Bachmann, let’s not and say we did. If she wants to align herself with these religious radicals, then she shouldn’t become President of these United States.
