Keith Ellison Interview

I interviewed Keith Ellison on July 3rd, 2006. During that interview I asked him about his position on GLBT issues and to explain his vote in favor of Intelligent Design Creationism when he was in the state house.

On Marriage:

Keith stated that people should be able to marry who they want. He mentioned the 1967 Loving v Virginia decision that struck down laws banning interracial marriage, and said that the Supreme Court should strike down laws that ban gay marriage.

He said Don't Ask, Don't Tell is a "failed policy" and that he would sign on to legislation that would repeal don't ask don't tell.

I asked Keith about his vote favoring Intelligent Design Creationism in the Minnesota state house. Keith stated this bill was written in an innocuous way. He said he said he wouldn't vote for such a bill again and added that Intelligent Design isn't science.

Keith also talked about his history with organizing the Millions Man March and Louis Farrakhan. He told me the same things he has told other reporters, so there's nothing new to report on that topic.
