“Family Leader” Pledge: 2 Candidates Pledge, 1 Shreds | Race 4 2012

“Family Leader” Pledge: 2 Candidates Pledge, 1 Shreds | Race 4 2012:

"The 'Family Leader' organization’s 'Marriage Pledge,' which they are asking presidential candidates to sign, ... lumps homosexuality in with polygamy, polyandry, and adultery ... claims that homosexuality is a public health risk ... requires presidential candidates to affirm that sex is more enjoyable after marriage ... advocates a ban on pornography ... and implied that blacks were better off under slavery (a blurb that was removed from the pledge and apologized for, a matter of hours ago).

"Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum both eagerly signed on to it within a matter of hours.... Huntsman says he’s not signing any pledges whatsoever ... Paul said he had 'reservations' about it, Pawlenty said he needed more time to review it, and Romney, Gingrich, Cain, and Obama are all ignoring it.

"Gary Johnson released a statement saying, 'The Republican Party cannot be sidetracked into discussing these morally judgmental issues — such a discussion is simply wrongheaded.... This "pledge" is nothing short of a promise to discriminate against everyone who makes a personal choice that doesn’t fit into a particular definition of "virtue".'”
