We always need to distribute some awards for stupidy and this week, we've got our winner ! Michele Bachmann, congresswoman in Minnesota, continues to affirm that gay men are a health risk for the public health, that it is a choice to be gay and that gay parents are inferior to straight parents.

She wishes as well of course that marriage equality is banned in Minnesota so she was the first to sign The Family Leader's pro-marriage pledge.

As explains DesMoinesRegisterDesMoinesRegister, "the Family Leader is a prominent Iowa group that promotes Christian conservative social values. It asked all presidential candidates to sign a pledge entitled, 'The Marriage Vow – A Declaration of Dependence upon Marriage and Family.' regarding their personal convictions on traditional marriage."
By signing this Marriage Vow, "Presidential candidates must agree to personal fidelity to his or her spouse, the appointment of 'faithful constitutionalists' as judges, opposition to any redefinition of marriage, and prompt reform of uneconomic and anti-marriage aspects of welfare policy, tax policy and divorce law.

The Marriage Vow also outlines support for the legal advocacy for the federal Defense of Marriage Act, humane efforts to protect women and children, rejection of Sharia Islam, safeguards for all married and unmarried U.S. military service members, and commitment to downsizing government and the burden upon American families.

In addition, candidates are asked to recognize that 'robust childrearing and reproduction is beneficial to U.S. demographic, economic, strategic and actuarial health and security.'"

Yes, all that !!! It deserves an award, don't you think? And something is telling me she will be on our list for the gold palm at the end of the year...
