Some of my followers are asking "Charles haven't you changed your core beliefs over the last 20 yrs?" The answer is NO. A core belief isn't what you do with your hair or the clothes you wear. Core beliefs are deep, long lasting & revealing of character.
So 20 yrs ago I didn't think gov't had a right to control a woman's uterus or her decision to have an intimate relationship with another woman or a man's decision to be intimate with a man. I didn't think of any of this as what @JKenney called a "culture of death"
For me, human beings must have sovereignty over their personal decisions, having or not halving children, having intimacy and marriage with opposite or same. These are core beliefs that I has 20 yrs ago . They will never change.
I found the @JKenney interview in April to be profoundly disturbing. This was not the Kenney I thought I knew. But now in watching this video from 20 yrs ago, I do get it. This is who he was and who he is. And that's why he kept Mark Smith on his roster. He was embarrassed
by how Smith expressed himself, but he shares Smith's core beliefs.When I gave @JKenney a chance to apologize for actions he took in #SanFrancisco 30 yrs ago, he wouldn't. Now I know why. The video tells me he was till grinning about attacking Gay spousal benefits 10 yrs later.
Those benefits included patients dying of Aids being able to have their gay spouses visit them in the hospital. Why would any decent human being be grinning about denying the dying that benefit. Why would he be proud of that at 21, and then at 31 & still not apologize at 51?
Most people who implored me over the last 10 yrs to stop offering support to @JKenney were women, gay & straight, and gay men. I ignored their words & I was wrong. I owe them an apology. You know who you are. I'm as sorry as I can be & hope that some day you'll forgive me.
