I'm for people not signing stupid pledges like that in the first place. Remember the judge in the Bible named Jeptha? After the Lord granted him victory in battle he pledged that he would offer the first thing that came out of his house to the Lord as a burnt offering. The first thing to come out of his house was his only daughter. Oops!
Remember Israel's first king Saul? (The one who came before David). After God granted his son Jonathan a great victory over the Philistines, Saul made a pledge that all the men should fast and that anyone who didn't observe the fast should be put to death. But Jonathan didn't get the message and ate some honey. Saul was going to put Jonathan to death, but thankfully the rest of the soldiers thought Saul was an idiot and prevented that. Again. Oops!
The moral of the story is, don't make stupid pledges. I'll support the GOP nominee no matter who he is? So someone gets the GOP nomination and is later revealed to be some Manchurian candidate but you have to stick with him because, by golly, you signed a pledge? Really?
