County GOP: No Premarital Sex or Porn for Candidates

County GOP: No Premarital Sex or Porn for Candidates March 2, 2015

Here’s a story I find amusing. The Laurens County Republican party in South Carolina is forcing candidates to sign a pledge that they won’t have premarital sex or look at pornography. Because good luck finding a way to enforce that or know if someone is doing it.

Last Tuesday, the LCGOP unanimously adopted a resolution that would ask all candidates who want to get on the primary ballot to sign a pledge with 28 principles, because the party “does not want to associate with candidates who do not act and speak in a manner that is consistent with the SC Republican Party Platform.”

Among the principles, according to Vic MacDonald & Larry Franklin of the Clinton Chronicle, is standard fare like opposition to abortion and upholding gun rights, as well as “a compassionate and moral approach to Teen Pregnancy” and “a high regard for United States Sovereignty.”

But then they get even more specific. From the Chronicle:

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 think they should force them all to get transvaginal or anal ultrasounds too. I mean, they think that’s okay for women who want an abortion, so it’s only fair.
