Michele Bachmann is the first presidential contender to sign a pro-marriage pledge by Iowa's right-wing Family Leader promising not to do any funny stuff like sleep around or get an abortion or follow Sharia law. The Marriage Vow covers alot of bases, from vowing support for the Defense of Marriage (as in, one guy, one gal, no sheep) and appointing "faithful constitutionalists" as judges to safeguarding military personnel from "intrusively intimate commingling among attracteds" and banning promiscuity and pornography - like, maybe, attempting to dictate the terms of other people's private lives according to your own twisted, narrow and fearful vision?

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
