Yes, yes it does: Marco Rubio says Denying Marriage To Gays ‘Does Not Make Me A Bigot’

March 14, 2013

While Marco Rubio addressed the CPAC 2013 crowd he said, “I respect people who disagree with me on certain things, but that means they have to respect me too. Just because I believe states should have the right to define marriage in a traditional way does not make me a bigot. Just because we believe that life, all human life, all life, all human life is worth of protection in every stage of its development doesn’t make you a chauvinist. In fact, the people who are actually close minded in American politics are people who love to preach about the certainty of science in regard to our climate, but ignore the absolute fact that life begins at conception.”


Well yes, opposing the Violence Against Women Act doesn’t just make you a chauvinist. It does make you a dick. Opposing same sex marriage while touting freedom, is hypocrisy at its best.

    Well, let’s see Marco: you’d deny gays the right to marry, the elderly the right to healthcare and immigrants (you self-hating Cuban American) every right there is, BUT YOU ARE NOT A BIGOT. And the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. Frankly this sort of rejection of the basic tenet of the Constitution: All Men Are Created Equal does not contain the sub-text: but some are more equal than others, no matter how much you’d like it to be the case.
