Maggie Gallagher Turns On Ben Carson

“Apparently the pounding from CNN led Dr. Carson not only to apologize but say he supports the right of states to choose gay marriage: ‘I support the right of individual states to sanction gay marriage, and I support the right of individual states to deny gay marriage in their respective jurisdictions.’ Only Dr. Carson knows why he chose to apologize. But this is a significant concession on his part substantively on marriage. But it is also true the Christian Right has not yet settled on a realistic legislative objective it wants candidates to support. Nor has it invested in building substantive political organizations to fight for these legislative objectives on marriage. We are witnessing the results of years of failed models of orthodox Christians engaging in politics, as well as not a single Christian billionaire who is investing, as the Koch brothers have done, in building an intellectual/cultural powerhouse like the Cato Institute.” – Maggie Gallagher, in a sideways slam at NOM, which she once headed.
