Gay Couples Raising Children are not "Families" according to Bachmann

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...
