Romney Refuses To Sign Anti-Gay Marriage Pledge [UPDATED]Irin Carmon7/13/11 10:10amFiled to: PoliticsFamily leader pledgeFamily leaderMitt Romneymichele bachmannGettypicRepublicans2012 ElectiontweetFb151EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkMitt Romney is refusing to sign a pledge that promises fidelity and rejection of gay marriage, abortion, pornography and Sharia law. His spokeswoman said he "strongly supports traditional marriage," but that the pledge "contained references and provisions that were undignified and inappropriate for a presidential campaign."Deets please! At the time Romney rivals Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum signed the pledge, it contained a wistful reference to African-American families during slavery, and implied that our first black president had something to do with the alleged iniquity of the black American family. But it was yanked after an outcry, so it's not that. Perhaps Mitt has a secret yen for Sharia law.
