Marco Rubio Recorded Robo-Calls For Anti-Gay NOM

MarcoRubio

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a man who has consistently sided with hate, is lending his voice to the National Organization for Marriage's war on equality in the four states voting on the matter next week, Minnesota, Maine, Washington and Maryland.

As Chris Johnson at the Washington Blade reports, though, neither Rubio nor NOM seem keen on making audio available for those of us outside of those states:

The National Organization for Marriage, one of the major groups
opposing marriage equality, included Rubio in a press release as among
those making calls against same-sex marriage along with former Arkansas
Gov. Mike Huckabee and Focus on the Family co-founder James Dobson.

According to NOM, calls will be made in both English and Spanish and
will target voters “across the political spectrum who favor retaining
the definition of marriage” as one man, one woman. NOM said a recording
of the calls wasn’t available upon request from the Washington Blade,
and Rubio’s office didn’t respond to a request for comment on the
senator’s participation.

Fred Sainz from HRC predicted that the ads "will be full of the last minute lies that NOM trots out during every campaign".

"It’s their stock in trade," he said. "But we’re confident that fair-minded
Americans will reject the messages." We'll know soon enough!

    When his ego tricks him into thinking he has a chance to run for President next time all this bs he’s doing now will come back to haunt him. We can all smile when he fails to win the Republican nomination.

    The pro-equality side needs to stop being confident about “fair-minded” Americans. These are the same lies/tricks that were used to pass Prop 8. There must be a response otherwise there will be four more states to add to NOM’s collection.

    We have to get an audio recording of this… Every gay in those 4 states needs to be ready to get this robocall on tape. It could seriously derail his career 10 to 15 years from now.

    Rubio is decidedly homophobic. It is quite discouraging as a gay man to see a politician take such an active role in disseminating misinformation while pandering to a group whose primary mission is to sew seeds of hate.

    @Icebloo, Steve: I’m sure that in 10-15 years he will be quite proud of what he’s doing now. I can still see the Republican party as anti-gay for the foreseeable future and he’ll make for a great nominee.

    Just another idiot that will shamelessly whore for the GOP in hopes of getting crumbs from the adult’s table. Too bad he’ll be stuck at the kid’s table for the rest of his career.

    When are these BIGOTS going to wake up to the fact that everyone that exists in the Universe has been created by God Almighty and that God Almighty does not make mistakes. God Almighty gave man specific rules by which He wants Man to live. One of these Rules is: “Thow shalt not bear false witness against thy naibour”. Why do the Rubio’s of the world think they can attain Heaven when they continually Sin against one of God Almighty’s basic rules when they continually LIE about Homosexuality and Homosexuals? (Or have they deluded themselves into believing that Hell is now Air Conditioned?)
