Arvin Vohra on Civil Rights

 

 


Same-sex marriage ok; or any number of consenting adults

Q: What about same-sex marriage?

A: Strongly support. I support any number of any gender of consenting adults committing themselves to each other in any way. If 8 men and 5 women want to get married, that's their business and their right. Government should have no involvement at all. If elected, I will sponsor legislation to repeal any government involvement in marriage, including any law that interferes with gay marriage, polygamy, or any other form of commitment.

Child molesting morally indistinguishable from homosexuality

In one post, Vohra claimed that it was preferable for a fourteen-year-old to be impregnated by an adult, because then they would be less likely to collect welfare. In another comment, he insisted that child molestation was morally indistinguishable from homosexuality, and accused gay members of the party of "hypocrisy" if they disagreed. In others, he insisted the abuse of children as young as nine should be left to the discretion of their parents. That's only a small sampling.

While mainstream libertarian outlets such as Reason have long questioned some applications of age-of-consent laws, for example in cases of the 18-year-old and his 17-year-old girlfriend, or teenagers "sexting" each other, these arguments never go so far as to endorse the permissibility of genuine child molestation. Vohra went much further, denying the morality of any such limits.

Abolish Patriot Act and redundant spy agencies

When we abolish the Patriot Act and massively downsize the current redundant spy agencies into one, constitutionally limited agency, you get your privacy and dignity back. This downsize means an end to warrantless wiretapping and a renewed protection of your right to maintain your privacy against any search or seizure without probable cause. We can focus on the actual defense of our country. I want to protect the individual right to privacy (expressed in the 4th Amendment).
