Posted on 12/01/2011 2:28:58 PM PST by Lazlo in PA
A cozy town hall meeting with Michele Bachmann at the Waverly Pizza Ranch in Iowa took a twist Wednesday when a student questioned the GOP presidential contenders views on same-sex marriage and of what she would do for the gay and lesbian community as president.
All of us as Americans have the same rights, we have the same civil rights, Bachmann told 16-year-old Jane Schmidt, who identified herself as a member of the schools GSA, the alliance advocating for the rights of gay and straight students.
There shouldnt be any special rights or any special set of criteria, Bachmann continued. We all have the same civil rights.
But that didnt sit well with the student, who said that members of the gay and lesbian community do not have the same rights because they cant get married.
In response, Bachmann said, There are no special rights for people based upon your sex practices.
Theres no special rights based upon what you do in your sex life. Youre an American citizen first and foremost and thats it.
Bachmann reiterated that marriage is between a man and a woman and that it is still the law of the land.

Video at link. Michelle is on fire.
She was great in that video.
There are no special rights for people based upon your sex practices.......yet
Kinda scary that young kids are leftist, mush head ideologues. Bachmann response that man-woman marriage was the law of the land was woefully inadequate. That’s what the debate is all about, and the law of the land may well be changed. Marriage is between a man and a woman. period. Doesn’t matter what law of the land is. Majority votes or minority pressure does not change eternal truths.
Tell me about it. I can’t wait till we have to carve out special rights for bondage freaks. That will be swell.
I admire her calm, cool, reasoned responses. Michelle did great.
Actually lots of states have sex preference laws.
Oh btw because this high school student didn’t agree with Bachman, I think we should have gay marriage. /s
no society can survive based on a “no child producing” marriage mandate. Homosexuals contribution nothing to society’s future via their recreational sex.
Damn...that was very, very good. Interesting to note that when I was younger; the subject of ‘gay’ NEVER came up in school. Now look at our children...the communists rule our public schools with an iron fist.
Jane Schmit or whatever can’t vote and there is a damn good reason 16 year olds can’t vote. Were it not for 18 year olds going to war they shouldn’t vote either. Neither should anyone who doesn’t pay taxes. That is the way it started out and that is the way it should have stayed and for damn good reasons.
Jane needs to sit down and STFU.
She did good. Just wish she would stop throwing darts at the others when they’re down.
I wish the GOP contenders would tie the First Amendment to so-called “homosexual” rights and how Americans would lose that right if we continue to allow so-called “homosexual-rights” to be law in any state.
Why in the hell should two males have special rights because they _______ each others _________?
Why in the hell should two females have special rights because they _______ each others ________?
Coincidence? I don't think so.
In NYS 18-21 year olds *whose mothers are still receiving “child” support payments on their behalf* are allowed to vote. Matriarchy support, errrr, I mean “child” support is mandatory through 21 and beyond.
So basically children can vote in NYS.
This is the SAME 'entitlement' mentality Adam Carolla was ragging about...thanks, "teachers".
“Basically they start insinuating that teens aren’t normal if they don’t have gay thoughts at an age when most kids want to be normal and fit in.
I’m incredibly lucky to have grown up in a conservative rural town where that crap simply didn’t take.”
Because otherwise you would have grown up to be gay?
****no society can survive based on a no child producing marriage mandate****
Sadly, the lesbians use IVF or adopt boys and change them into girls; while the gay men/pedophiles rent wombs and/or adopt boys.
All because they have a civil right to do so...married or not.
“We rural kids learned to think for ourselves at an early age and weren’t easily manipulated.”
From what I remember about growing up, nobody had to teach me or my friends to be heterosexual, and nobody could have taught us to be gay, and I didn’t grow up in a rural community. I suspect there’s more to being gay than what you’re taught at school.
The fact that the numbers seem to be increasing could be because they are now not so afraid to come out of the closet, or perhaps it has to do with plastics or contaminants in the food/water supply which impede normal fetal development.
Thanks Lazlo in PA.
She is STILL my first choice. She is SMOKING conservatively speaking....
For those who argue that no one has the right to deny consenting same-sex adults the right to marry because it’s an outmoded moral value that has no basis in law, then there’s no right to outlaw incest, polygamy, or bestiality. All can be justified using the logic of the people who support same-sex marriage.
BTTT! I agree completely!
But, let’s be sure to counter-attack their arguments with more than just the moral argument.
The idea behind giving government or business benefits to a heterosexual couple is that they can create life (all on their own accord) to grow and develop a cohesive society. Homosexual couples offer NOTHING to the development and growth of society, safe with the help of someone else! There is absolutely no way around that argument!
young minds are indeed malleable, I can remember, growing up, that many of my male friends were indeed cute or even handsome. However I also remember the cutest, sweetest girls in the world....pinafores, puffy skirts, mary-jane patent leather shoes, curly blonde locks, shy smiles......and as handsome as little freddy was, he didn't have a chance!!!!!
Or a latex one.
“Surely you are NOT suggesting that young minds are not easily impressed and corrupted? There are volumes of proof that kids are EXTREMELY malleable in a variety of subjects, up to and including KILLING! So, why would these easily misled youths not be convinced that homosexuality is an acceptable way of life?”
I think what I said was pretty clear-—that no amount of misleading information from my school was going to convince me or anyone of my friends to be attracted to members of the same sex. Do you think that you could have been swayed in that direction? I doubt it. Now as far as making these youngsters more tolerant of those that are gay, I think you are right, they could be swayed in that direction.
Latex? I may have to borrow that one...
If anybody knows that a gay man has the same right to marry a woman that anybody else does, it’s Michelle Bachmann.
I heard that a town on the Cape which is a homosexual enclave only had one child born one year.
This homosexuality is normal began with the Kinsey Report in the 1940’s. This report was done by a perverted guy who interviewed sex offenders and included child abusers in his study. This was the foundation of the modern sex education that is now prominent in our schools. The sex education group SIECUS also came from this study. I guess if you have a PHD after you name it excuses you from being a pervert.
Plastics have been around for sixty years. Is it a coincidence that there seems to be a growing number of homosexuals since the gay movement became so in-your-face in the seventies? They are playing with us. They are recruiting right under our noses. There is much about human psychology that we do not understand.
I agree that children are malleable, that is why parents are told to bring them up in the care and admonition of the Lord. Consider how whole societies have fallen into deprave behaviors like human sacrifce and canabalism. We have to guard our hearts and minds.
The homosexuals have put words in the kids mouths at these gay alliance clubs. They give them the *talking points* that slick, educated public relations people put together. This gives them an advantage in any discussion with other kids, even adults.
A great change in behavior that has occured in this country is the widespread use of drugs. When I was in highschool in the mid-sixties there were no drugs in the great majority of schools. It was something that was considered fringe behavior and I knew no one who used drugs. Now almost everyone has someone in their extended family that uses drugs. The abnormal became normal.
Consider abortion. I never heard of anyone having an abortion now abortion has reached 50 million. When the Supreme Court put its official seal of approval on the practice it became acceptable to many people. Something that was a crime and considered murder became a *right*.
exactly...I found the “law of the land” approach lacking too.
You could tell by the girl’s face that she was listening to circular logic.
From the girls viewpoint - Michelle says...you don’t have special rights based on your sex practices.
The girl is thinking...but heterosexuals have an “extra” privelege to get married.
Everyone is missing the point.
The very definition of marriage is the union of male/female
You just can’t make it mean the opposite of what it has always meant.
we are slowing turning into a child-producing-non-heterosexual-marriage society.
The young’uns aren’t getting married - they are living together, procreating, fighting, breaking up, moving out, finding another partner,repeat.
It has become the new circle of life.
This new system provides the foster care system with plenty of kids to place into the care of homosexual couples.
