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.
