Bachmann Calls For Banning Same-Sex Marriage

Michelle Bachmann calls for states to outlaw same-sex marriage:

Minnesota is the first state that has decided that this issue will be on the ballot in 2012, the state of New Hampshire will be taking this issue up as well, and other states. This is the time. And so I want to encourage all of you at home, if you don’t have a similar amendment, consider this in your home states. I believe this is the time to do it. So I just want to say thank you to those who continue to carry that torch.

Regardless of one’s personal views on the subject, you cannot claim to be a supporter of small government while promoting a government which tells people who they can or cannot marry.

Conservatives like Bachmann talking about freedom remind me of slave owners who fought for their freedom to own slaves. To conservatives, freedom winds up meaning the freedom to impose their values and beliefs upon others.

    Nevermind the hypocrisy of the small government thing, which is total bullshit, but it’s just unbelievably cruel.  Why are so many conservatives just so cold-hearted?  It’s actually a little weird.  Then many of them have the nerve to say, “I have many gay friends”.  No, no they don’t.
