Bachman and her high school debating club arguments are pure common denominator; as if it was the questioner's fault for forgetting to add the qualifier of 'to each other'. It's the same as when they winge on about the definition of marriage in the dictionary being sufficient reason to deny gay marriage, as though it's impossible to edit a dictionary. Childish reasoning of an idiot. Next she'll be saying that freedom of religion means that she's free to impose her christian beliefs on everyone.

If you US lot elect her I shall be very disappointed with you and may even use my iPad slightly less in protest! (joking, ovvers;-))

@Dallas
Lol the comments have really blown up on your video, huh?  And as for the other video, Bachman worded her answer to the gay marriage question SO well.  She has received guidance from intelligent people.  Gays DO have the right to marry.  Gay marriage is not a gay right; it's a right for straights too.  It puts things in a little different perspective for me.

Her rant about religion in schools was also very well-worded.  I can see how a like-minded crowd would rally around her.  She also puts this issue in a different perspective for me.  I realize how important the Department of Education is after seeing this.  Sorry, but public schools are not churches.  That's what private schools are for.

Finally, WHY is everyone posting in the comments section?  I feel like most of what gets said down here deserves a discussion.

A friend of mine had a good idea.  Carry slips of paper with you to drop into Salvation Army Kettles, which explain why you are not donating.
I thought of these four as a sample of what you could write.  Use one or all four, or one of your own.
Why I Will Not Donate to the Salvation Army:
1. When my dad was on the docks loading up to board a ship to to fight a war in Korea, Goodwill was out there giving soldiers cups of coffee. The Salvation Army was out there SELLING cups of coffee to the service men.
2. Like other profit making religious organizations, you file for tax exemption under religion, and therefore do not file a 990 form which would declare your income and what you do with your money.
3. You charge a price for feeding the needy.  That price is obedience to your religion, forcing those who are down and out to pray for their supper, despite individual personal beliefs.
4. You blatantly ignore your position statement of helping all who are in need and deny LGBT people services unless they renounce their sexuality, end same-sex relationships, or, in some cases, attend services "open to all who confess Christ as Savior and who accept and abide by The Salvation Army's doctrine and discipline." In other words, if you're gay or lesbian, you don't qualify.

she got into, and stays in, office because people vote for her.  I have not heard if there is a competing candidate for the upcoming election.  If not, it's partly the fault of the democrats in her district as well.  People can only vote her out if there is a viable opponent.

She's so effin' stupid! How do people like that get into office.

What's the reason for opposing this again?

I don't know which is more annoying - Bachmann or the people who applauded her.  And what schools allow muslims but not christians to pray?  Ms. Bachmann will eliminate the dept of education....  jesus...."When I was growing up in Iowa, there was no fed dept of education" - yeah, and look what resulted, dimwit.

Student questions Michele Bachmann on gay rights

On Wednesday, presidential candidate Michele Bachmann held a town hall meeting at the Pizza Ranch in Waverly, Iowa. The highlight of the eveningcame when a high school student in attendance raised her hand and asked Bachmann what she would do to support and protect the gay community.

Bachmann responded that all Americans should and do have the same rights, which drew a smattering of applause. The student responded: "Well, why can't same-sex couples get married?"  Bachmann responded that gay men and lesbians do in fact have the same rights as everyone else because they can marry members of the opposite sex. So, a gay man could marry a woman. And a lesbian woman could marry a man. Even though they are gay. Got that?

You can watch a video of the full exchange, which also touches on prayer in school, after the jump below.

 

I don't think Bachman understands what it means to be gay.

In 8th grade we had a PSA project. ( Public Service Announcement) Don't Say Gay. I chose a funny way to present it. Subscribe! And thanks to my little brother for being the star!

This video was featured on AOL.com and the Huffington Post!
