They keep trying and FAILING, but they don’t seem to ‘get it’. Maybe they will when they’re voted out of office. Marco Rubio is an idiot of the top order. You know, Hilary Clinton might have made bad choices with that email fiasco, but the way I see it, ALL politicians are liars, but at least she’s not trying to destroy the country like Republicans are.
Despite the backlash after Indiana and Arkansas tried to pass laws designed to allow for discrimination against LGBT people, conservatives are still peddling the same talking point that “religious freedom” must be protected — e.g. that refusing to serve a same-sex couple’s wedding is justified for a business owner who opposes same-sex marriage. And it’s a talking point that presidential hopefuls are amplifying.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), having just tossed his hat into the presidential ring, offered a rambling answer to NPR this week in support of these “license to discriminate” provisions that demonstrates how this anti-LGBT discrimination is spun. “I think there’s a difference between not providing services to a person because of their identity, who they are or who they love, and saying, I’m not going to participate in an event, a same-sex wedding, because that violates my religious beliefs,” he explained. “There’s a distinction between those two things.”
