Speaking before a group of religious leaders at a private prayer breakfast in Washington D.C. on Thursday, Rand Paul suggested that the marriage equality debate was taking place because the country is facing a "moral crisis."
“Don’t always look to Washington to solve anything. In fact, the moral crisis we have in our country, there is a role for us trying to figure out things like marriage, there’s also a moral crisis that allows people to think that there would be some sort of other marriage.”
Paul, who is expected to announce his presidential bid early next month, went on to suggest that America is in need of "another Great Awakening" complete with "tent revivals."
