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.
