Buddy Roemer on Civil Rights

Former Governor (R-LA); frontrunner for AmericansElect presidential nomination


Protect sexual preference; decide gay marriage by each state

Q: I would like to see your positions on social issues?

A: Social issues abound and I'm not sure which are in your top priority. I am a practicing and church going Methodist. (I attended the 8:45 service at Sandown, N.H. this morning, for example.) I am no saint, but I am trying to close the gap. I am pro-life, but believe that the life of the mother should be protected. I believe that our Constitution grants us the freedom to worship as we please without government interference or permission. I believe that God and our Constitution protect our liberties regardless of our color, religion, or sexual preference. I am a traditionalist on the question of marriage, believing that marriage should be between a man and a woman. But our Constitution protects each state's right to decide this question by a vote of its people or their representatives. We MUST work together to reclaim a nation in peril. I will work hard to build that kind of nation. Thanks and America needs your help.
