Secular Coalition Slams Senate for Confirming Carson as HUD Secretary

Washington, DC-- The Secular Coalition for America released the following statement today in response to the Senate's vote to confirm Ben Carson as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

Statement by Larry T. Decker, Executive Director of the Secular Coalition for America

"The Department of Housing and Urban Development is tasked with creating ‘strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all.' Today the Senate voted to entrust this vital mission to retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who has repeatedly disparaged LGBT persons, comparing homosexuality to beastiality and pedophillia. During his confirmation hearings, Carson characterized LGBT anti-discrimination laws as granting ‘extra rights.' As the Head of Housing and Urban Development, Carson will be on the frontlines combating the epidemic of LGBT youth homelessness and protecting same-sex couples from housing discrimination. Carson's confirmation advances a political agenda at the expense of some of our nation's most vulnerable communities."
