Marcorubio

In an interview with CBS's Face the Nation on Sunday, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio stated that while he does not support same-sex marriage, he also doesn't believe sexual orientation is a "choice."

Said Rubio:

"I don't believe same-sex marriage is a constitutional right. I also don't believe that your sexual preferences are a choice for the vast enormous majority of people. The bottom line is I believe that sexual preference is something that people are born with."

Marco Rubio: the candidate who doesn't blame you for being gay and will even attend your wedding...he just doesn't think you should be able to have one in the first place.

Scott Walker Admits He's Attended a Same-sex Wedding Reception: VIDEO

Walker

Add Wisconsin governor and likely presidential candidate Scott Walker to the growing list of Republicans who've been asked "Would you attend a gay wedding?"

The New York Times reports:

“That’s certainly a personal issue,” Mr. Walker said at a brief news conference after addressing a gathering of New Hampshire Republicans here. Referring to his wife, he continued, “Tonette and I and our family already had a family member who’s had a reception. I haven’t been to a wedding. That’s true even though my position on marriage is still that’s defined between a man and a woman, and I support the Constitution of the state. But for someone I love, we’ve been at a reception.” The governor was away on business when the wedding occurred, but he later attended a reception for the newlyweds.

Last June, a cousin of Mrs. Walker, Shelli Marquardt, was married to her partner at Waukesha County Courthouse outside Milwaukee, according to media reports. The Walkers’ then-19-year-old son, Alex, served as a witness and signed his name to the marriage certificate.

FRC Hate Leader Tony Perkins Attacks Hillary Clinton For Including Gay Families In Campaign Ad: LISTEN

Tony Perkins has attacked presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign launch video for including a same-sex couple, reports Right Wing Watch.

Family Research Council President Perkins said on his radio program this week that Clinton’s “definition of family is a bit different” because she had the audacity to include a gay couple.

The hate group leader’s guest, conservative commentator Terry Jeffrey, said that GOP presidential candidate Paul Rand will lose votes because he has already “surrendered” on the issue of same-sex marriage:

“If you have a candidate that does that, a Republican Party candidate who does that in the fall election, then there is going to be millions of voters all over America — especially people who are married folks with families who get out and go to work and support and raise their own kids and believe in the Judeo-Christian moral tradition that made America great and made America free — you will have millions of voters like that say ‘wait a minute’ and they’re going to be turned off and some of them, quite frankly, aren’t going to want to vote for somebody who takes that position.”
