Presumably in response to Ron Paul’s endorsement of Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin — a reaction to the “Snubgate” fiasco that the LP claims wasn’t a big deal — Libertarian Party spokesman Andrew Davis has posted a blog at LP.org saying that the Constitution Party’s “raison d’etre is to essentially establish a ‘Christian’ nation.”
Davis, who was allegedly photographed a few years ago wearing a “God Made Adam and Eve, Not Adam and Steve” t-shirt, then goes on to lecture the CP about “gay rights.”
However, the biggest difference between the two parties, and one that is the best manifestation of the diametric difference of philosophies on the role of government in society, relates to the issue of gay rights.
The Constitution Party, in pursuit of their goal to “restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations,” takes a very different approach towards homosexuality than that of the Libertarian Party.Â The platform of the CP states that “the law of our Creator defines marriage as the union between one man and one woman,” and “no government may legitimately authorize or define marriage or family relations contrary to what God has instituted.”
The CP also does not believe the government should recognize civil unions for gay couples.
