Stephen Forbes on G/L Issues

What He Has Said:

Homosexuality is a lifestyle that I personally do not approve of

I don't think the government should be in the business of making laws about it. But I do think, in terms of the military, the military should not have to take open gays

If you're not openly gay, yes, you can go into the military. But if you are openly gay, then you have to understand, you're not going to be in the military

Open gays should not be in the military. The military is not an agency for social experimentation. They have a real mission and they should be allowed to carry it out.

Additional Positions:

Opposes equal marriage rights for gays and lesbians

Supports "Don't Ask Don't Tell" as is

"Pro-Life" and will use "Pro-Life" beliefs as litmus test for court appointees (note: This relates in that this means that Forbes would be looking for socially conservative people as appointees.)

Reported by Planet Out: Bill Horn of the religious right group Straight from the Heart was present to push the candidates to sign poster-sized versions of his group's anti-gay "Presidential Pledge," which Bauer, Forbes and Keyes did readily; Horn said that Bush had declared in a letter that he abstains from pledges, but stated "that he is against gay marriages and against pornography."
