Family Leader Removes Slave Reference From Marriage Vow
So, that vile "marriage pledge" Iowa conservative Bob Vander Plaats and his group, The Family Leader wanted GOP presidential candidates to sign?
In addition to all the homophobic language, it also included a section that suggested black families were better off during slave days.
Here it is:
Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA's first African-American President.
As Jason Linkins at the Huffington Post reports, however, the Family Leader has now removed that segment.
I suppose that's what conservatives mean when they say they have "common sense."
