The Marriage Vow — An Un-Christian, Bigoted Screed


A bunch of wingnuts in Iowa have published a document that they call “THE MARRIAGE VOW A Declaration of Dependence upon MARRIAGE and FAMiLY.”  What garbage!  The portions of the agenda that are  desirable are ruined by the rest of the document’s contents, and by the blatant attempt to stuff it down everyone’s throat.  It isn’t even a vow to protect marriage, although they have tried to weasel the wording so that they can claim that it is.  It is nothing less than a platform that they want every candidate for public office to swear to push forward.  It is racist, bigoted, and about as un-Christian as anything I’ve read since Mein Kampf — a blatant attempt to foist the agenda of a few onto the many.

I was going to publish it in its entirety, but could only find it in .pdf.  I would have had to convert and then edit the disgusting trash, and I didn’t want to subject myself to reading it again.

Here’s a link to an article in the Portland Examiner. You can take it from there.  If you want to comment here, feel free.  However, I’m not going to read the comments because it might cause me to change my mind about the sanity — and desirability — of some of my friends.

Among the 14 pledges in The Marriage Vow are faithfulness to one’s spouse, respect for the marital bonds of others and “opposition to any redefinition of the Institution of Marriage — faithful monogamy between one man and one woman — through statutory-, bureaucratic-, or court-imposed recognition of intimate unions which are bigamous, polygamous, polyandrous, same-sex, etc.” Also included are the rejection of “Sharia Islam and all other anti-woman, anti-human rights forms of totalitarian control” and a commitment to reducing the size of government and lowering the public debt.

But wait! There’s more! You ain’t seen nuttin’ yet (pun intended).

  1. I read yesterday that Republican candidate, Herman Cain wants to outlaw Islam. His argument: In Islam the church and state are one and therefore that is unconstitutional here where we have separation of church and state. I don’t recall him giving examples of where any American Muslim refused to live under U.S. law however. And I don’t know if he has signed the pledge or not.

    1. Totally bogus, stupid statement meant to appeal to the members of his potential base who never think beyond sound bites. That isn’t an issue in Islamic countries, where it is (sometimes) enforced, and it certainly isn’t an issue here. Heard about any Muslims trying to take over the USG lately?

      The trouble is, there are a lot of idiots who will think that illogic makes perfect sense, because they’ve never been taught to think for themselves. The educational system in this country wasn’t dumbed down for nothing.

Got an opinion? Keep it clean. Don't ask open-ended questions, like "Does the Pope belong to a coven?" Make it pertinent.
