Rick Perry Signs Marriage Pledge

Presidential candidate Rick Perry has signed a pledge promising to oppose same-sex "marriage" and advance a constitutional marriage amendment.

Candidates Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann have also signed the pledge. Other Republican candidates have not signed it.

I wonder if, say, local politicians were asked to sign a similar pledge to support marriage, who would sign it?

Would candidate Inslee sign it? No.

Would candidate McKenna sign it? Who knows?

Would your senator and representative sign it?

If you support marriage and oppose re-defining it, will you vote for a candidate who does not support the most fundamental unit in human civilization---marriage as the union between a man and a woman?

Here's the pledge: Should we expect those in Washington state asking for the conservative, Christian vote to promise to support the spirit and intent of this pledge? Or a similar one? Or should we just vote for the "lessor of two evils?"

Thank you for your support as we defend marriage in Washington State.
