Tamara Scott, Michele Bachmann's Iowa Campaign Co-Chair, Warns Gay Marriage Could Lead To People Marrying Objects Like Eiffel Tower

One of the oldest tricks in the book when it comes to scaring people into not supporting gay marriage is using the "slippery slope" method.

You tell people that if gay marriage is made legal, it's only a matter of time before the state or country will be full of polygamists or men marrying turtles, as Bill O'Reilly has suggested, or, as Michele Bachmann's new Iowa campaign Co-Chair, Tamara Scott, is warning, women marrying the Eiffel Tower.

The two worry that polyamory and "objective sexualism" will run rampant if gay marriage becomes legal (or, in the case of Iowa, remains legal).

RightWingWatch.org notes "last year [Scott] successfully fought to remove three justices from the Iowa Supreme Court after they legalized marriage equality in the state" and that she has told supporters "This is a battle for your future as Americans, for your future as a society and for your future someday when you stand before the Throne."
