Bachmann's Iowa Campaign Chair Says Same-Sex Marriage Will Lead To Object Marriage
Submitted by Brian Tashman on November 21, 2011 - 1:30pm

A candidate with a long and ferocious anti-gay record as Michele Bachmann needs a campaign chairman with a similar history of activism against gay rights. Last week, Bachmann’s campaign announced that Tamara Scott will serve as her Iowa Co-Chair, with campaign manager Eric Woolson announcing, “We are proud to have the support of an honorable conservative leader like Tamara.”
Scott is the director of Iowa’s Concerned Women for America chapter, and last year successfully fought to remove three justices from the Iowa Supreme Court after they legalized marriage equality in the state. She claimed that the future of America and people’s potential to enter Heaven would be in jeopardy if marriage equality remains the law of the land, telling supporters, “This is a battle for your future as Americans, for your future as a society and for your future someday when you stand before the Throne.”

One reason Scott said that voters should oppose marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples is that it would open the door for polyamory and legalizing marriages between people and inanimate objects. While speaking with Bob Vander Plaats, the head of The Family Leader, Scott warned that gay rights will lead to people marrying objects like the Eiffel Tower:

  In all actuality, I'm so glad to hear this is coming available.  I plan to marry the Capital.  I figure the way I've been f'd raw by the politicians and government, I should at least get a tax break by being able to file "married".  I can take all of congress as a dependent, right?

  Be warned, people....these are the people who want to "lead us" in to the future.

Hello Randy
'....people engaged in such matters say that this attitude is based on three things: ignorance, stupidity, and nothing else' (Douglas Adams, from the radio version of The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy).
Four things maybe, in this case - ignorance, stupidity, bigotry, and nothing else.

Love & best wishes

Hi Sammy;
I love it! I don't recall that phrase from the book? I need to reread's been, gosh, 20-years??? Man, time flies.
Wonderful comment. Thank you.

oh, ps: did you notice that line in the text here about how gay marriage will effect the chance of people to get into heaven??! Wow. My pastor never told me that my ability to get into heaven had anything to do with anyone else. I guess things have changed. Isn't duplicity fun.

Hallo Randy;
I think that in America the cabaret artists always have enough material for their work.
Does the population takes those people with their quirky views realy seriously?

Hi Nikki;
I think these people take themselves far too seriously, and there are a great number of sheep in this country that are in a hurry to follow someone without thinking about where they are going. Now, anyone with any sense is going to hear this and wonder what sort of dope these folks are smokin'.
You have me laughing this morning!
