That People Would Say This....

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.
According to The Ticket that language was reportedly part of a marriage vow urged upon GOP candidates by "The FAMiLY LEADER a Christian conservative organization which provides a consistent, courageous voice in the churches, in the legislature, in the media, in the courtroom, in the public square…always standing for God’s truth in order to strengthen the family."

It blames the War on Poverty and says that Gay marriage is harmful to the institution of marriage. It urges the candidates to be monogamous and to remain married.In the paper that goes with it, it sometimes sounds like a pro-women statement, but it doesn't feel all that inclusive in its underlying ideology. They have removed the slavery section, but the underlying meanness toward Obama is staggering in its blindness.
