Finally some good news. Way to go Santorum and Bachman.
Wouldn't that be a sweet ticket - Santorum and Bachman.
NOW READ THIS.
The leftist liberal spin monster socialists jumped all over Santorum and Bachman for signing this vow because of language in it that pertained to slavery. They said what is wrong with these two for signing such a bill with a reference to slavery, shame on them. (paraphrased)
This is the paragraph of the marriage vow the screwed up left complained about:
"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 vow read.(taken from the NY Post)
Well this is what my research has dug up:
During the days of slavery a black child was more likely to grow up living with both parents than he or she is today.

Gutman, The Black Family in Slavery and Freedom, 1750-1925 (New York: Pantheon, 1976). For a review of this and similar studies see Stanley L. Engerman, "Black Fertility and Family Structure in the U.S. 1880-1940," Journal of Family History 2 (Summer 1977): 177ff. Cited in The Abolition of Marriage, by Maggie Gallagher page 117

Then I dug this up about Dr. Blackman, who is she? Just look at her photo http://www.keepingfamilyfirst.org/blackman2007.html,
Then I went to this link http://www.keepingfamilyfirst.org/blackmaninterview.htmland read her interview.
These are a few lines from it:
Q........ You mentioned slavery--- we've heard individuals talk about the lingering effects of the institution of slavery being one of the causes for family problems in the black community. In his book published by the Harvard University Press, Andrew Cherlin states that, During the days of slavery a black child was more likely to grow up living with both parents than he or she is today..
A. (Dr. Blackman) Absolutely and the data is solid.
So the leftist liberals don't even research what they rant about? Anything a white conservative says or does is automatically wrong! Especially shame on the black liberal I saw foaming at the mouth on CNN complaining about Santorum and Bachman. They are doing nothing but trying to stand up for whats right. Why don't these leftist unGodly people just leave this country instead of spewing their divisive hate? And why doesn't the Christian Conservatives fight back instead of caving in?
In the mean time, lets get behind Santorum and Bachman.
