Marco Rubio: Gay Rights ‘A Real And Present Danger’ To Freedom
Be scared. Be very scared that gays get rights because, somehow, that take freedom away from other people. Somehow. I’d like someone to explain, for once, exactly how giving rights to one group removes it from another.
In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody, Rubio warned that gay marriage represents “a real and present danger” to America because gay rights advocates are bent on labeling any anti-gay messages, including those from churches, as “hate speech.”
During a previous CBN interview, Rubio criticized gay marriage supporters for trying to sway the Supreme Court with “a ridiculous and absurd reading of the U.S. Constitution.”

well in a way he’s basically right – the majority, that being the heterosexuals, should have first say and ultimate privilege over the will of the nation
it’s this western notion of equality that’s outdates and deserves criticism

it is your complete lack of understanding of how America works that deserves criticism.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Riiigght. If what you claim were true, I’d still be living under Jim Crow laws and riding in the backs of buses, using separate bathrooms, and standing at the counter in restaurants to be served while watching “the majority” sit down inside and enjoy their meals. Equality is an important concept because it recognizes the shared humanity of all persons. It’s not necessarily about what type of sex someone is having, or who a person loves. It’s a matter of being equal under the law.
If one says s/he doesn’t believe in equality for all, then, s/he has no compassion for his/her fellow man and somehow thinks, because of the way s/he was born, that s/he is superior in some way to others when s/he is not. We’re all headed to the same place—the grave. Now, if one could convince me of his/her immortality, I might believe we aren’t all equal, but since no one can do this, I can only conclude that we’re equal to each other in our right to live our lives the way we choose.

Too bad you’ve never read the Constitution (or if you did you didn’t understand it)
The Document was penned for one reason…to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority. We don’t live in a democracy, we live in a Constitutional Republic.
He is not “basically right” but you are completely wrong.

if you are in the usa and n what you say, I believe you should get the hell out and find a stye where the slop is better distributed among the sick minded.

The government just needs to up and get out of the marriage business. Religious aholes who think they have a lock on being ‘Murican are one of the reasons we can’t have nice things.

Way to ramp up the old resume for president, Rubio. Nothing like alienating potential voters. But, hey, keep it up. You’ll soon be in the dust pile of the forgotten.

So much for the all inclusive party

Only in the world of the seriously deranged can another group of Americans having the right to do what their fellow citizens can already do be called “a present danger to freedom.” Freedom is freedom. Rubio is making a critical mistake. He’s pandering to the far right in an effort to win the primary, but he’s going to have a hell of a time moving to the center if he does win the nomination. Most Americans have already shown that they do not have an objection to gay marriage.

Okay, so we think the Rub has been introduced to at least 1 of Tom Clancy’s books.

There is no essential difference between a layman saying ‘I think gay people are dirty perverts’ and a pastor saying ‘the bible says that homosexuality is wrong and perverted’.
Just because something is said by a religious leader or a church,
doesn’t exempt it from being horrible, hateful, ignorant or wrong. If
churches want to express hate speech, then by all means, go for it, but
own it for what it is and don’t try and say that it is merely ‘sincerely
held religious belief’.
