Dr. Ben Carson was questioned today during his confirmation hearing.

He is the nominee for Housing and Urban Development head.

He was grilled in particular about whether he would enforce laws relative to LGBT people, given his conservative Christian views.

From The Hill:

“Of course, I would enforce all the laws of the land,” Carson responded. “Of course, I think all Americans should be protected by the law.”

“What I have said before is I don’t think anyone should get ‘extra rights,’” he added.

Carson’s point is a simple one.

We are a country that protects individual rights, not group rights.

Everyone is equal under the law, that’s the principle of our Constitution.

Progressives believe in dividing by groups.

Conservatives believe in the rights of the individual.

All individuals, each individual.

That way, everyone is empowered.
