Michele Bachmann: Gay People Can Get Married — But Only To Members Of The Opposite Sex – The Huffington Post http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mobileweb/2011/12/01/michele-bachmann-gay-marriage_n_1123784.html
Here’s the full transcript of the exchange between Bachmann and the high school students, via the Register:
JANE SCHMIDT: One of my main concerns is government support for the LGBT community. So my question is what would you do to protect GSAs in high school and support the LGBT community.
BACHMANN: Well, No. 1, all of us as Americans have the same rights. The same civil rights. And so that’s really what government’s role is, to protect our civil rights. There shouldn’t be any special rights or special set of criteria based upon people’s preferences. We all have the same civil rights.
JANE SCHMIDT: Then, why can’t same-sex couples get married?
BACHMANN: They can get married, but they abide by the same law as everyone else. They can marry a man if they’re a woman. Or they can marry a woman if they’re a man.
And by God her and Marcus live by that rule. To. The. Letter.
