Rubio: Gay marriage is 'about what society should tolerate'
Can Florida Sen. Marco Rubio cut the mustard with GOP conservatives, particularly evangelicals, as Mormon Mitt Romney's running mate when his views on a hot topic like gay marriage are so ... open?
That's an interesting spin out of Sarah Pulliam Bailey's interview with him in Christianity Today. He details his faith journey in/out/in/out/in Catholicism. But none of the faiths he's experienced, including the Mormon church and an evangelical church, would condone legalizing gay marriage.
Marco Rubio says, "I believe marriage is a unique and specific institution that is the result of thousands of years of wisdom, which concluded that the ideal -- not the only way but certainly the ideal -- situation to raise children to become productive and healthy humans is in a home with a father and mother married to each other." That one statement tells you a lot about where this guy is coming from, and the unbiblical character of his faith. Marriage is definitely NOT a "unique and specific institution that is the result of thousands of years of wisdom." That would make it the result of an "evolutionary" process in which society itself decides over "thousands of years" what is best for itself. That is a flat denial of the biblical teaching regarding the origin marriage. Marriage originated on the sixth day of creation, when God took material from Adam's side and formed a woman and gave her to Adam. Marriage is God's institution, not man's. It is not the 'result' of a millenium long process. It was instituted by God at the very outset of human history. Therefore, God alone is "Lord of marriage," and He has designed it to be the holy and sacred union of one man with one woman for life. Woe to any arrogant politicians who dares to "revise" what God has ordained!
So me thinks Obama is a Christian. I wonder how he evolved to that conclusion or is he running on both tickets, it could be a first. So the guy who openly disregards GOD's word on sodomy and murder (abortion) is a Christian that's stretching it. I love when people say I don't question peoples faith. I don't either but I do apply what the bible says what a Christian should look like and neither of them come close. For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth 10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

We the People wanted no-fault divorce (AKA no-requirements marriage) and because that worked so well, now we want gay marriage, otherwise why would a potential Republican VP candidate -- no less -- state so boldly: "Gay marriage is 'about what society should tolerate"?
