The Corner

Correction/Clarification

As readers of NRO know full well, I have clearly and repeatedly announced my opposition to sodomy laws. I did so two years ago, in “The Ashcroft-Logger Alliance,” and did so again recently in “Defending Senator Santorum,” http://www.nationalreview.com/kurtz/kurtz042403.asp and in “Sullivan, Santorum & Me.” In fact, I do so again in my new piece for NRO today, and do so on yet another blog I’ve put up today on The Corner. Despite all this, I am sorry to say that one of my fellow NRO Contributing Editor’s, Deroy Murdock, has written a column that condemns me for my supposed support of sodomy laws. In the column he refers to, “The Libertarian Question,” I do explain the rational for sodomy laws, but I never, as he claims, argue that they should “remain on the books.” In fact, in that piece, I specifically separate my views from those of Senator Santorum. And again, as noted, I have clearly and repeatedly announced my opposition to sodomy laws in many other pieces. I have asked both Deroy and Scripps Howard to issue a public correction on this matter.
