    BREAKING: Bachmann pledges to ban pornography | ThinkProgress

    Bachmann became the first presidential candidate to sign a pledge created by THE FAMiLY LEADER, an influential social-conservative group in Iowa. By signing the pledge Bachmann “vows” to “uphold the institution of marriage as only between one man and one woman” by committing herself to 14 specifics steps. The ninth step calls for the banning of “all forms” of pornography. The pledge also states that homosexuality is both a choice and a health risk. You can read all the details of the pledge here.
    The ninth step does not call for the banning of all pornography. Actually click all the links until you reach the PDF of the actual document. It reads differently to me.

    The whole thing sounds nutty to me but that doesn't mean we can lie and say it calls for the banning of pornography.

    "Humane protection of women and the innocent fruit of conjugal intimacy () -our next generation of American children- from human trafficking, sexual slavery....all forms of pornography and prostitution....blah blah.

    Sounds like they want to ban it.

    He's right that it doesn't explicitly mention banning it. But it does at the very least call for more "protection" from it or controls on it (and again, that's just at a minimum)...which, as I said in my previous post, is more government intervention from a candidate built on the idea that government intervention is inherently bad.

    This is my problem with conservatives. They say they're for less government involvement, but they're really just for less government involvement in areas they don't like.
    Sort of like trying the dictate to others what they can eat while pigging out on the very same stuff you are saying is bad? (this is not a defense of Bachmann)

    Exactly, the pledge sounds loony which is right up bat**** crazy bachman's lane, I just don't think we have to misrepresent what it says to make her look bad. She does a good job of that already.

    You consider they lump porn in with sexual slavery, it sounds like they may want to ban it.

    BTW, who here thinks that whoever typed up this "pledge" has a massive stash of porn hidden either in the closet or on his computer?

    I think that's a good question for someone to ask her. Lets see if she wants to ban it or not.
