“But the Declaration is more than just an assertion of rights. It also makes a clear statement about the ultimate source of authority which commands respect for those rights. God, the Creator, the author of the laws of nature, is that
source.” ALAN Keyes ‘96 FOR PRESIDENT" Campaign Brochure.
Yet on page 28 and 29 of his SPECIAL FEATURE article “Gay Rights and Religious Freedom” by Dr. Alan Keyes he says “That’s why laws against their sexual practices should be repealed, unless some purely secular justification can be advanced to support
them.” I believe this statement would be accepted completely by Act Up, Queer Nation, and the Washington Blade, the homosexual advocate magazine.
That sounds completely contradictory to what he said in his Campaign Brochure. This statement was also verified by Phil Litton, a delegate, in the presence of other witnesses, while at the California Republican Assembly Presidential Endorsing convention
in Oakland on Sunday November 12, 1995.
If that was not enough contradiction he says in the same campaign brochure.
“After conception, the human life in the womb is no different than human life outside the womb. Except where necessary to save the physical life of the mother, abortion is the unjust taking of a human life and a breach of the fundamental tenets of our
public moral creed.” This position is clearly supported throughout all his writings and statements.
Yet, when he was on CBS This Morning on April 14, 1995 and was pressed by Paula Zahn about his abortion position he said: “I have made it very clear throughout my career that I make the life-of-the-mother exception and that I would accept the rape and
incest exceptions.” This was a radical and different shift in his position. I verified with Keyes the authenticity of the interview.
If you can not trust a presidential candidate to stand firm on the moral issues that have brought him this far, what can you count on him for?
