I signed what?!!?? It says what, now????

Conservative Republican presidential candidates Michelle Bachman and Rick Santorum signed a two-page “marriage pledge” condemning abortion, gay marriage, unwed sex and babies having babies out of wedlock.

They must have overlooked this zinger:

"Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA's first African-American President," the document read.

Both have denounced their former support of the statement.

Now the Iowa-based conservative group, The Family Leader, has agreed to remove the passage amid growing pressure.
