WASHINGTON – GOP Presidential Candidate Herman Cain has raised the profile of marriage in his campaign by calling President Obama's views on marriage “an impeachable offense.” The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) shares Mr. Cain’s sentiment that marriage should be defended.

“We need someone who does not just talk the talk, but walks the walk on marriage. That is why we asked all the GOP candidates to sign NOM's 5 point marriage pledge. Bachmann, Santorum and Romney have. Why hasn't Herman Cain?" asked Maggie Gallagher, chairman of NOM. "President Obama claimed he supported traditional marriage but then failed to follow through. If Herman Cain wants to distinguish his position from President Obama, he should commit to concrete actions, not just rhetoric in support of marriage."

NOM's marriage pledge was offered to all serious announced candidates for the GOP nomination.

Candidates’ signed pledges can be seen here:
Michele Bachmann
Mitt Romney
Rick Santorum
