In fact, he gave a pretty sweet speech on it, so I hear.
From the Capital Times:
Libertarian Ed Thompson, the brother of former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson, told a crowd at the 14th annual OutReach awards banquet Friday night that Wisconsin will “draw a line in the sand” in November against prejudice by turning down a constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage and civil unions.
Thompson, a Tomah City Council member and restaurant owner who ran unsuccessfully for governor, challenged the crowd of about 250 at Monona Terrace to stand up against the “incredible hatred and bias that is ruining our country.”
He also accused politicians and religious leaders of using their power to manipulate people and use gay marriage as a wedge issue to garner votes.
“What happened to the separation of church and state?” he said. “The phonies and hypocrites in office talk about the sanctity of marriage and can’t see the love in this room.”
It’s good to see Libertarians reaching out to minority groups. We need to do more of this. Nobody yearns for liberty more than those who have had it least.
