Marco Rubio: Gay Rights 'A Real And Present Danger' To Freedom

Like Bobby Jindal, GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio is desperately prostituting himself to the deranged Christofacsist of the Republican Party base.  Yesterday, Rubio appeared on gay hater Pat Robertson's "700 Club" and described gay rights as a "clear and present danger" to America.  Of course, if anyone is a clear and present danger to the country, it is the Christofascists and hate merchants like Pat Robertson (who has stated that he wasn't sure if the recent Texas floods were the fault of gays or not).  Right Wing Watch looks at Rubio's disgusting self-prostitution.  Here are excerpts:

Marco Rubio was the subject of a fawning profile on today’s edition of “The 700 Club,” in which host Pat Robertson hailed the GOP presidential candidate as “the Democrats’ worst nightmare.”

In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody, Rubio warned that gay marriage represents “a real and present danger” to America because gay rights advocates are bent on labeling any anti-gay messages, including those from churches, as “hate speech.”

“We are at the water’s edge of the argument that mainstream Christian teaching is hate speech because today we’ve reached the point in our society where if you do not support same-sex marriage, you are labeled a homophobe and a hater,” Rubio said. “So what’s the next step after that? After they’re done going after individuals, the next step is to argue that the teachings of mainstream Christianity, the catechism of the Catholic Church, is hate speech. That’s a real and present danger.”

During a previous CBN interview, Rubio criticized gay marriage supporters for trying to sway the Supreme Court with “a ridiculous and absurd reading of the U.S. Constitution.

It's beyond frightening that Rubio views the concept of equality under the civil laws as a "ridiculous and absurd reading" of the U.S. Constitution.
