Once again Michele Bachmann avoids the issues related to gay rights and equality. Why these interviewers let her get away with this I don't know, but it's time someone made her answer for her backwards, hate-filled views of gay people in general. She is twisted mentally in her thoughts and hypocritical in her answers. Is this the best the GOP an do for a candidate?
On Sunday's Meet The Press, David Gregory challenged GOP hopeful Michele Bachmann on her anti-gay views. Among other things he asked whether she believes a same-sex couple raising children constitutes a “family.” Bachmann doesn’t.
The 2010 Census shows that there are at least 13,718 same-sex couples living in Bachmann’s home state of Minnesota, and 2,372 of those couples report raising children.
GREGORY: Can a gay couple who adopt children, in your mind, be considered a “family”?
BACHMANN: When it comes to marriage, and family, my opinion is that marriage is between a man and a woman. And I think that’s been my view —
GREGORY: So a gay couple with kids would not be considered a “family” to you?
BACHMANN: You know, all of these kind of questions really aren’t about what people are concerned about right now...
