Now, what was he thinking?

The following excerpts are from an article on the CBS News site titled:

"Thought Police Go Too Far"

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/07/ ... 7969.shtml


(National Review Online)
This article was written by By G. Tracy Mehan III.

It is not without irony that Robert J. Smith, a Catholic citizen of Maryland — the Catholic colony of the original 13 — has been punished by that state’s Republican governor for exercising his right to freedom of speech and religion.

Robert Smith, a Maryland gubernatorial appointee to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) board, appeared regularly as a panelist on a local cable talk show. As the Washington Post reported, during a recent show the topic of homosexuality and federalism came up, and Smith at one point said, “That’s fine, that’s fine. But that doesn’t mean that government should proffer a special place of entitlement within the laws of the United States for persons of sexual deviancy.”

Later, Smith acknowledged the comment and reiterated it.

Ooh. That was an interesting article. I love/hate it when people do stuff like this.

For future reference, please don't quote a copyrighted article in its entirety without permission from the source. I truncated the article a bit (probably not enough) for you here. Thanks for providing the link, though!
