Marco Rubio: Homosexuality Is Something You’re Born With

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.

Watch: Imagine If A Conservative Commentator Said This About A Liberal Hispanic Politician…

Yes, far-left comedian and political commentator Bill Maher has aimed some of his super-edgy criticism lately at Democrats, as Western Journalism has noted. However, it seems that the aggressively sarcastic Mr. Maher simply can’t help but return to his old ways and launch the kind of ugly, vicious attack on Republicans for which he’s gained a reputation on his HBO show Real Time.

What Maher let fly on the latest edition of his program was the kind of shocking insult and demeaning affront that, had a conservative said such a thing about a liberal Hispanic politician, there would certainly be relentless charges of mean-spirited racism leveled amidst the demands for an immediate firing, if not a public flogging. You can just imagine how fast the protest groups and Hispanic advocacy organizations would form massive picket lines outside the HBO studios. You might even wonder if Eric Holder would launch a formal Justice Department investigation.

What did Bill Maher say that many decent people would certainly find repugnant? Paul Bedard of The Washington Examiner points out the short segment in which Maher made a demeaning and derogatory comment about newly announced GOP presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio. Bedard quotes the Media Research Center’s Brent Baker, who offers a scathing observation about liberal hypocrisy:

“Imagine the reaction if a conservative made such a stereotypical, derogatory and racially-tinged joke about a liberal Democrat who is Hispanic. Saying it was just a joke would not allay the outrage. It sure is nice to be a liberal so you’re able to get away with such things.”

By clicking on the video above, you can watch for yourself what Bill Maher said that demonstrated no apparent awareness of the abject hypocrisy of his so-called “comedy.” You see, it wasn’t that long ago that Maher delivered a stinging on-the-air rant against liberals who bully and demean people when it suits their agenda.

Don’t Put Your Hope In ‘Conservatives’

“When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on.” –President Franklin D. Roosevelt

Conservatives are continuing on in their venture of shamelessness and stupidity, debating over the next presidential nominees that have been handpicked. Furthermore, in many cases, their records have proven them to be corrupt and ineligible.

Yet, all of this is overlooked by those who should know better. They go on as if to ignore the crimes that have been committed or as if it is the norm for representatives to violate their own oaths and transgress the law.

I ask you: are the conservatives talking about bringing Hilary Clinton to justice? Or are they talking about her chances of becoming the first woman president?

Are they talking about Marco Rubio and his ineligibility? Or are they talking about his chances of becoming the President of the United States? (Article 2, Section 1 The Constitution of the United States)

How about Jeb Bush? There is no difference between him and what America is complaining about concerning the current administration.

Or what of Rand Paul, the libertarian (without regard to the law), who wants to appease both the sodomites who want to marry along with supporters of traditional marriage?

Rand seems to believe that man created government and that he has a right to erect a government in his own image.

It is as if The Lord is saying to America, “You set up Kings, but not by Me” (Hosea 8:4).

The conservatives get the American people talking about the wrong issues; then, they get the same results. All the while, the American people are trying to figure out why they are confused (Daniel 9:7). This process is insanity: doing the same things and getting the same results – while expecting different results (Hosea 8:7).

These are the same people who have helped turn America’s glory into shame because they have left off knowledge and common sense.

Do you want resolve? Well, desperate times call for desperate measures. Bring forth judgment (Amos 5:24)!

For those who realize that this current, criminal administration has done nothing but bring disease, disgrace, lies and deceit, racial division, hatred, huckstering, socialism, poverty, world embarrassment, an illegal healthcare system, tyranny, and economic downfall to this country, also realize that the only remedy for corruption is justice (Psalm 94:16).

America needs to realize that across this nation, we are all saying the same things because we are all rooted in the same principles (Hosea 4).

Shut the mainstream programming off, especially the conservatives; for they, along with their viewers, are responsible for painting America into a corner.

But, some may ask, “Why should I care anymore? There is no hope.” (Jeremiah 18:12)

Yes, there is. The hope is found in what you do with the truth that has been given to you (Colossians 1:27). Do all that you can do, and leave the results up to God. But you first have to do.

There is a story told of a mule that fell into a well. As it sat in the pit of that well, it whined and whined until it could whine no more. During that time, one of the farmers heard the mule, came over, and noticed that it fell into that well and knew that if he did not get it out, it would soon die. So, the farmer gathered some of the local farmers to see how they could get the mule out. Without any lengthy debate, they just decided to leave that mule to die in the pit of that well. It was worthless, or so they thought. Each of the farmers went back to their farms to get their shovels, headed over to the well, and started to scoop the dirt to bury the mule.

Each scoop of dirt that was thrown into the well would land on the back of the mule. In desperation, with each scoop of dirt that was meant to bury him, he would simply shake it off and use the dirt that fell from his back as a stepping stone to trot right out of that hole that they meant to bury him in.

To those who are shaking it off and are in the good fight of faith (1 Timothy 6:12; James 2:18), to those who are bringing forth a labor of love (1 Thessalonians 1:3), to those who are bringing forth Judgment to establish righteousness (Isaiah 26: 9), and have come to the realization that we are overcoming this world (1 John 5:4) and are made more than conquerors through Him that loved us (Romans 8:37) and continue to stand in this warfare (Ephesians 6:12), I salute you.

Remember, God does not need a majority to prevail–just an obedient minority (1 Corinthians 1:29).

God is willing to give to His church what they are willing to fight for.

Marco Rubio Hammers Hillary Clinton/Obama Era As A ‘Disaster For America’

Newly announced presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., didn’t back on Sunday when questioned about running against Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton.

One could say that Clinton, who launched her campaign last week–one day before Rubio–underwhelmed the nation with her campaign debut; and many–even some on the Left–think she’s nothing but inauthentic.

Rubio argued that if Hillary Clinton were president, it would be no different than if Obama was serving a third term. He hasn’t seen her “distinguish” herself from what Obama is doing now.

As a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Rubio had a lot to say to CBS News’ Bob Schieffer on Face the Nation about Clinton and her failures as President Obama’s secretary of state.

“We cannot ignore she was the secretary of state during the first four years of the Obama presidency and has virtually no meaningful achievements to show for it,” Rubio said to Schieffer. “On the contrary, whether it’s the reset in Russia, or our response to Benghazi, or everything in between, the Obama foreign policy during the Clinton years – especially as secretary of state – have been a disaster for America.”

“Today, our allies trust us less,” Rubio added. “Our enemies fear us less. And America has less influence in the world than it did four to six years ago.”

What Jeb Bush Just Told Republicans To Do Shows How Much He Agrees With Obama and Reid

At a political event in New Hampshire, the man many people think may be the Republican nominee for president just said GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill should do something that many in the party, especially conservatives, are firmly against. The former Florida governor told the town hall-style forum that the Republican-controlled Senate should go ahead and confirm President Obama’s choice for the country’s next attorney general, Loretta Lynch.

Bush’s advice to Republican senators who stand opposed to Lynch’s becoming the nation’s top law enforcement officer puts him squarely at odds with a number of GOP senators, including the two who have announced their run for the White House — Kentucky’s Rand Paul and Florida’s Marco Rubio.

The New York Times reports that Bush told the Thursday night gathering in Concord, N.H., that when it comes to such nominations, “there should be some deference to the executive.”

“’I think presidents have the right to pick their team,’ Mr. Bush said, in response to a questioner who asked where he stood on the nomination of Ms. Lynch, now the United States attorney for the Eastern District of New York.”

However, at the same time that he said President Obama should be granted his choice for attorney general, Bush launched into a stinging criticism of the current head of the Justice Department, Eric Holder. It would not be a stretch to observe that, in addition to being at odds with widespread GOP sentiment about Loretta Lynch,  Bush’s position seems to be at odds with itself. He suggests that the president’s nomination should be okayed, even if that results in the installation of a powerful department head with whom he strongly disagrees.

Breitbart News notes that Jeb’s call for Lynch’s confirmation aligns him with Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and other Democrats in the upper chamber. Senate Republicans who fiercely oppose the president’s pick have cited their objections to Lynch’s expressed support for Obama’s executive amnesty that would grant millions of illegal immigrants certain rights and privileges traditionally enjoyed by U.S. citizens.

Essentially then, because of Loretta Lynch’s endorsement of Obama’s executive action on amnesty, Jeb Bush is aligning himself with the president’s position on the highly controversial policy that angers many conservatives.

Breitbart also points out that Bush’s contrary position on the Lynch nomination comes at a time when polling is moving against him.

“Bush’s move comes as he’s lost his frontrunner status–despite all the money he’s raking in–in the 2016 GOP primary to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who opposes Lynch’s nomination and now leads Bush in polls in all three early primary states.”

And just today, Friday, Politico reports on a new poll of 400 registered Republican voters in Florida who put Rubio ahead of his former political mentor in the Sunshine State.

“Rubio garnered 31 percent support from Republicans and essentially tied Bush’s 30 percent, according to a Mason-Dixon Polling & Research survey conducted Tuesday through Thursday and shared exclusively with POLITICO.”

Thee is still no date announced for the full Senate’s consideration of the nomination of Loretta Lynch, who, if confirmed, would be the country’s first female African American to become attorney general.
