Two of the top Republican presidential contenders have backtracked from signing a pledge against gay marriage that also suggested Black families were stronger under slavery.

First Leader, an Iowa Christian conservative group, released a pledge called “The Marriage Vow” which equates homosexuality with polygamy and adultery, and calls for the banning of all porn.

The most shocking part of the document is when the group says that Black children were better off under slavery because there were more two parent households.

“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,” reads pledge.

The group has since removed that passage from the document and apologized for it.
Bachmann said she is against the slavery passage in the document, and Santorum claims he was taken aback by it.
