Florida Senator and Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio has made waves in the last week regarding his stances on homosexuality and gay marriage. Previously, he expressed that he would attend a loved one’s same sex wedding because he would continue to love them, but also would do so while disagreeing with their decisions.
More recently, in an interview with Bob Schieffer on CBS News’ Face the Nation, the Republican candidate added that while he believes marriage is an institution between one man and one woman, he believes homosexuality is “something that people are born with.”
“I don’t believe that your sexual preferences are a choice for the vast and enormous majority of people,” Rubio said. “In fact, the bottom line is, I believe that sexual preference is something that people are born with.”
Rubio navigated the questioning carefully, trying not to ostracize anyone.
“It’s not that I’m against gay marriage,” he said, adding that he thinks state legislatures ought to be making decisions about marriage rather than the courts. “I don’t believe same-sex marriage is a constitutional right.”
Same-sex marriage and homosexuality are probably going to be two issues pushed hard by the left during the 2016 election, in an attempt to secure the LGBT community’s vote.
