Anonymous asked: He doesn't think the government should have a say in gay marriage. His religious values don't promote it, but he doesn't care what people do in their own privacy. He thinks people should be able to decide for their selves with minimum government interference. And he believes if anyone should have a say in marriage its the states, not his decision. He neither a racist nor a homofobe, he stands up for the individual.
That’s the problem with civil liberty though. He wants to give the power to the states because most of them still share his views anyways. We can’t have minimal government interference because that would lead to chaos. See: French Revolution. Back to my point about why there are barriers to change in American Democracy. It’s to keep the crazies under control. Technically speaking, I’m kind of a crazy on the left side. I’m a bit more moderate than fully left, but definitely more left than right wing. We have to keep everyone happy and civil liberty cannot achieve that.
Also, he is a racist and homophobe. I’m sure you’ve at least heard of the racist statements from the newsletter, and if you haven’t come across the homophobic ones the link to a few of those is in that debate post.
Lastly, he doesn’t stand up for the individual he stands up for the states
