The Family Leader Says Its Pledge Doesn’t Mean What It Says

Posted by | July 8, 2011 20:05 | Filed under: Top Stories

Michele Bachmann signed a pledge which, among other things, vowed to ban pornography.  The head of the group that tries to get candidates to sign this pledge (also signed by Rick Santorum) now says banning pornography wasn’t the intent.

THE FAMiLY LEADER’s head Bob Vander Plaats has reacted to the growing controversy about his pledge by backing away from its plain meaning. Today, he claimed, “We are not calling for a nationwide band [sic] on pornography,” and that the pledge is really intended “to imply opposition to women being forced into pornography or prostitution.”

The wording of the pledge commits a candidate to:

Humane protection of women and the innocent fruit of conjugal intimacy — our next generation of American children — from human trafficking, sexual slavery, seduction into promiscuity, and all forms of pornography and prostitution, infanticide, abortion and other types of coercion or stolen innocence.

Of course, the light of day helps us see how foolish these pledges are.
