Various media outlets reported about the debate and argument between Alexander McCobin and conservative radio host Michael Medved:
Talking Points Memo writes:
Prior to Medved’s comment, Alexander McCobin, president and co-founder of Students for Liberty, a libertarian group, said that the religious liberty that had historically been repressed had been “the liberty of those religious institutions and practices that support same-sex marriage.”
“The government has prevented them from engaging in the religious practice that they want,” said Alexander McCobin, president and co-founder of the libertarian Students for Liberty.
Alexander McCobin, the president of Students for Liberty, argued that the liberty of pro-gay religious groups is being denied when you have “state-sponsored discrimination” all across the country.
Chris Johnson quotes Alexander McCobin in the Washington Blade:
Alexander McCobin, executive director of Students for Liberty, represented the opposite end of the conservative spectrum and said on the panel that marriage equality is “the civil rights issue of the 21st century.”
MSNBC also mentions the panel.
SFL Board of Advisors member, Daniel Hannan, MEP, mentions SFL and the popularity among Millennials in this Rare interview:
There’s the Students for Liberty movement, which is global. I’ve spoken at their meetings in some of the most unlikely places – provincial France. I think there’s a real generational shift. We’ve seen this in polling in the UK.
We have hard data that the younger people are, the more likely they are to be libertarian on issues like welfare reform, education reform, and taxation.
Furthermore the Miami Herald quoted SFL Campus Coordinator Associate David Deerson.
In fact, the usual clusters of Students for Liberty and the Campaign for Liberty activists traditionally at CPAC appeared to ignore the first day of the conference, and showed up for the second day.
