Michele Bachmann: Gay People Can Get Married -- But Only To Members Of The Opposite Sex

Video.........

GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann says gay people do have the right to get married -- so long as they're planning on tying the knot with a member of the opposite sex.

The Minnesota congresswoman was campaigning in Iowa Wednesday addressing a group of high school students when Jane Schmidt, president of Waverly High School's Gay-Straight Alliance, confronted her on same-sex marriage rights.

Bachmann had just finished explaining that the purpose of government was to ensure that the civil rights of all Americans are protected.

"We all have the same civil rights," Bachmann said, according to the Des Moines Register, providing an opportunity for Schmidt to press her.

"Then, why can't same-sex couples get married?" Schmidt asked.

"They can get married," Bachmann responded. "But they abide by the same law as everyone else. They can marry a man if they're a woman. Or they can marry a woman if they're a man."

It hasn't worked in the past. Can't wait until iVillage gets that "ignore" button back.

He's one of the truist Christians I've ever met. He does the WWJD, thing to the Nth power. He truly forgives his dad. He really "Love's God, and love's his neighbor." I swear, if he was being stoned to death, his last words to his perpetrators would be "I love you and I forgive you." You know how Jesus said "Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do." That is my nephew and he's been like that since he was a little, tiny

"How & who do same sex couple hurt??"

<>

There are no valid social reasons that same-sex marriage hurts anyone.

Let me know when you've been electetd Supreme Ruler of the World so your decrees will carry more weight.

As for religious reasons, that's between someone and their church/beliefs, not something that has anything to do with anyone else who doesn't belong to that church/belief system.

Sure it does...people with religious beliefs vote.

Links, please.

It's an easy google search...but not worth my time to dig them up for you when all you'll do is pooh-pooh them and attack the sources.

<>

Having just looked up the definition, you are wrong.

Yeah...again with the whole Supreme Ruler thing. ; )
