Marco Rubio digs deeper on anti-gay rights

Apr 15, 2015

Marco Rubio keeps digging himself into a hole on LGBT rights. He says he believes states should have the final say on legalizing same-sex marriage but his record tells a different story:

“I’ve never supported a federal constitutional amendment on marriage,” Rubio told msnbc’s Kasie Hunt in an interview Tuesday.

But the Christian Coalition, a group that issues surveys to candidates and tracks their positions on a variety of issues, reported in their 2010 English and Spanish voter guides that Rubio supported a Federal Marriage Amendment.

Despite Rubio’s protests, a spokeswoman for the organization stood by their account. Earlier this week on Hannity, he re-upped his support for religious discrimination laws like Indiana’s RFRA. When it comes to gay rights, he’s guaranteed to be just a discriminatory as the rest of his party.
