|Mother, Congresswoman and Sponsor of Hate|
Iowa: Michele Bachmann is the first presidential candidate to sign a pledge that promotes the notion that "homosexuality is a choice, and pornography must be banned." This is so outrageous. Let's see if it makes the news tonight.
This is what the Republicans in Iowa are asking candidates to sign.
These alleged Republicans, in the party of Abraham Lincoln, say kids were better off when they were slaves? Are you kidding me? And a member of Congress signed this thing?
The above statement that Congresswoman Bachmann signed, includes this statement prepared by The Family Leader, an Iowa Republican conservative Christian group who claim:
"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."3.3. The footnote cites a study by the Institute for American values in 2005, "The Consequences of Marriage for African Americans: A Comprehensive Literature Review" by Lorraine Blackman, Obie Clayton, Norval Glenn, Linda Malone-Colon, and Alex Roberts.
How could a study completed in 2005, support any statement related to President Obama, when he wasn't elected until 2008. In addition, it says it's a Literature Review.
We can all see through this, it's pure racism and hate.
According to sourcewatch.org, The Institute for American Values is a right wing anti-gay organization., affiliated with NOM.

"Through its an annual budget of about $1,000,000, financed primarily by tax-deductible contributions from foundations and individuals and the sale of publications, it is able to support a staff of nine, five of whom provide central staff support and four of whom are affiliate scholars. The Institute's affiliate scholars - Enola Aird, Maggie Gallagher, Elizabeth Marquardt, and Kathleen Kovner Kline - work in regional or home offices on projects concerning motherhood, marriage, the effects of divorce on children, and civil society.
I think she should resign her seat in Congress.
