Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann is using her anti-gay track record as one of her strengths in comparison to her fellow candidates, the New York Times reports.
Again, this is not a surprise - her web site lists “supporting the family” and “defending marriage” as some of her political priorities. Oy. From the NYT:
“Mitt Romney has defended gay marriage and even signed marriage licenses for same sex couples and Ron Paul doesn’t believe the government should protect the institution of marriage,” Mrs. Bachmann said. “I have a record of defending life, marriage and the family and I’ll protect them as president of the United States.”
This woman makes me retch.
In other words “I have a track record of disregarding basic human rights, and I’m PROUD of destroying these lives in my selfish conquest to push MY religion onto others!”
