It's unclear whether her faith or belief in fiscal responsibility are the bigger reason Wisconsin lieutenant governor candidate Rebecca Kleefisch, the running mate of Republican Scott Walker, supports the state's gay marriage ban, but she sure talks a good game. In an interview with a radio station, she told listeners: "This is a slippery slope. In addition to that at what point are we going to be okay marrying inanimate objects? Can I marry this table or this, you know, clock? Can we marry dogs? This is ridiculous, and biblically, again, I'm going to go right back to my fundamental Christian beliefs marriage is between one man and one woman." But that was totally taken out of context!
