Conservative favorite Ben Carson clarified on Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference that gay people have rights — they just don’t have “extra rights” like the right to marry.

“As you know, I am not a fan of political correctness,” Carson said to loud applause in a video clip pulled by Media Matters. “I still believe that marriage is between a man and a woman.”

“Of course gay people should have the same rights as everyone else,” he continued. “But they don’t get extra rights. They don’t get to redefine marriage.”
