I think I can speak for all LGM writers in support of the Laurens County (SC) Republican Party and its pledge that it wants to demand of all Republican candidates:
You must favor, and live up to, abstinence before marriage.
You must be faithful to your spouse. Your spouse cannot be a person of the same gender, and you are not allowed to favor any government action that would allow for civil unions of people of the same sex.
You cannot now, from the moment you sign this pledge, look at pornography.
I cannot think of a more successful strategy Republicans can take to ban anyone who has had premarital sex or looked at pornography from running for office moreover, I think it’s only consistent to apply the standards to all registered Republicans.
I strongly urge the national Republican Party to follow the brave leaders of South Carolina in making this a national platform plank.
