This does not in any way diminish my respect for and commitment to the legitimate protection of the right to believe, to practice and to express deeply-held religious beliefs.
When it comes to civil rights and the LGBT community, states are best served when they take an inclusive approach of "fairness to all. The goal was fairness for all: Fairness for people of faith seeking to live their religion, and fairness to the rights of gays and lesbians.
This approach was actually led by many leaders of the LDS Church. Having crossed the plains of the United States seeking the freedom to worship as they chose, Mormons have a keen appreciation of how minority groups can suffer under majority rule.
Rather than seek to pass a law with a thinly-veiled intent to discriminate against gays — or to permit everyday businesses to discriminate against gays — this "Utah Compromise" provides an example of how we can strike the balance between religious freedom and civil rights.
The Utah compromise barred discrimination against lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgendered individuals in employment and housing. In addition, the Utah law requires the office of every county clerk to be available to solemnize same-sex unions.
At the same time, the law provides reasonable protections for the freedoms of speech and association of bona fide religious organizations — and made the religious and LGBT protections inseverable.
In a March article in Time magazine , Jonathan Rauch, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, contrasted this approach with the discord in Indiana:.
We saw it taken in Utah just a few weeks ago. The state passed new religious-conscience accommodations, but they were tied to new gay-rights protections.
Both sides walked away feeling more free to live according to the lights of their consciences. Both got a win and supported the outcome.
America is big enough to accommodate differences of opinion and practice on religious and social beliefs. As a nation and as a society, we must reject discrimination, forcefully and without asterisks.
Most importantly, as president I will zealously defend the Constitution of the United States and all of its amendments. Gary Johnson is the Libertarian Party's presidential nominee.
His running mate is former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld. Check out his political positions Wikipedia page for an in-depth look.
Suffice it to say, Johnson is a libertarian. He supports the decriminalization of recreational drug use. Furthermore, Johnson strongly favors a limited government and would like to see government spending cut in virtually every area from entitlements to military to education.
As I have examined this issue, consulted with folks on all sides, and viewed it through the lens of individual freedom and equal rights, it has become clear to me that denying those rights and benefits to gay couples is discrimination, plain and simple.
