Marco Rubio Says Being Gay Is Not a Choice
Marco taking the “states’ rights” route might seem like a standard GOP response, but it’s not. It’s the only path that opposes Hillary Clinton’s recent evolution to full federal rights that stands a miniscule chance of success. Marco’s statement on choice also elevates him to the point position of being the first GOP candidate to break with the hard right FRC stance on SSM. I’ll be getting out the popcorn to watch the response.
Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio says he does not believe sexual orientation is a choice for the “enormous majority of people.”
The Florida senator’s comments came Sunday on CBS’s Face the Nation, where he said that it should be up to states rather than the Supreme Court to define marriage and that he considers marriage to be between a man and a woman.
“I also don’t believe that your sexual preferences are a choice for the vast and enormous majority of people. In fact, the bottom line is, I believe that sexual preference is something people are born with,” Rubio said.
