Marco Rubio: Being Gay Is Not A Choice

Soooo we don’t choose to be gay, yet we have no rights either.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said on Sunday that he didn’t think being gay was a choice but rather the way some people were born.

During an appearance on CBS’ “Face The Nation,” Rubio, who launched his 2016 presidential campaign last week, said that he believes the definition of marriage is a union between a man and a woman. The Florida senator also added said that same-sex marriage was not a constitutional right and should be decided by state legislatures, not the courts.

Despite his position, Rubio added that he didn’t think being gay was a choice.

  1. I am confused by Senator Rubio’s remarks in your article. I believe that being gay is a choice, based on the Bible. Being gay in itself is not a sin. Taking part in homosexual acts is.

    Lev 20:13, Romans 1:26-27, Jude 1:7. 1 Corinthians 6:9

    Yet, it is not the only sin. Fornication, adultery, stealing, murder, lying, and so forth are just a few examples of the many sins. Therefore, we are to love our neighbor, but hate the sin.

    1. I think most educated folks are pretty clear that being gay is not a choice. I read the same Bible and I do not interpret it saying homosexual love and relations within a committed loving (married) relationship is sinful.

      I am a Christian amount a growing number of Christians who believe being gay is not a sin. Yes, the Bibke does condemn some same-sex relations: hedonistic gratification , religious rituals, or when over-power or controlling a weaker person.

      Homosexual love as is understood today was not even culturally acknowledged in those times! Our modern culture has progressed in many areas: women have political and material rights and power, slavery is gone, interracial couples can marry, segregation is abolished and now homosexual love is understood by the medical community and more and more by the general masses as not deviant just a different expression of love.

      If you are heterosexually wired a homosexual relationship wold be sinful FOR YOU. Thou shalt not judge if it is a sin for your neighbor! Thus, the only point of hating a sin is to keep yourself God focused and living your life in a way that honors God’s purpose for you.

      Love the sinner hate the sin should not be seen as a free ticket to judge someone over something you clearly don’t understand.
