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.
