Doug Newman describes himself as Christian and libertarian. Maybe his
website and articles
could be helpful when dealing with the religious right.
Or maybe not.
"Let me be blunt: homosexuality is a depraved and perverted
lifestyle. The thought of going at it with one of my own positively
makes my stomach do 360s. Christianity and numerous other
faiths condemn it. It is a lifestyle fraught with peril. God made
Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve."
Since the rest of Mr. Newman's article from which you quote makes a
case for opposing a constitutional amendment prohibiting same sex
marrieage, I have no problem with his stomach doing 360's. I am
assuming that the Libertarian principle of using our own bodies as we
see fit also applies to Mr. Newman. I do have a problem, however,
when personal beliefs regarding any subject (homosexuality, abortion,
prostitution, gods in public spaces, etc. etc.) translate into action
at the ballot box which results in limiting my Constitutional
rights. Perhaps Libertarians need to focus on such actions?
