Bowing to the pressure of special interest groups, Rick Perry signed National Organization for Marriage’s anti-marriage pledge, joining fellow GOP hopefuls Michele Bachmann and Mitt Romney in their promise to increase the size of government by creating
a presidential commission on religious liberty;
spending taxpayer dollars by sending a
a Constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman to the states for ratification;
and by defending the Defense of Marriage Act in court. Additional government spending will be required to
“advance legislation to return to the people of the District of Columbia their vote on marriage.”
How un-Republican. It is horrifying that the GOP candidates for president are groveling for the votes of extremists and vowing to appoint judges that will legislate from the bench. I am shocked, absolutely shocked!
