    Marco Rubio says sexual preference is not a choice

    Marco Rubio says sexual preference is not a choice | MSNBC

    Newly declared Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio said Sunday that he believes being gay is not a choice.

    “I … don’t believe that your sexual preferences are a choice for the vast and enormous majority of people. And, In fact, the bottom line is that I believe that sexual preference is something people are born with,” Rubio, a senator from Florida, told “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer.

    Although Rubio continues to be generally opposed to gay marriage, it appears his position on the key social issue is evolving. Just Tuesday, Rubio told reporters that he has never supported a national constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, despite a 2010 voter guide from a leading social conservative group indicating he supported such an amendment.

    How long until he comes out to say it was all the fault of the "liberal" show host/reporter and he really didn't mean what he said?

    This forum probably has gigabytes worth of people screaming that sexual orientation is a choice. I'm sure they'll start evolving on this issue soon enough.

    Well that will upset all the social conservatives. And I agree with others, there goes most of the SE States Republican vote.

    I wouldn't be so quick to try to push Rubio off the stage. I think there are plenty of social conservatives who believe that homosexuality is not a choice. How one behaves, of course, is always a choice, but not necessarily orientation.

    Re: Marco Rubio says sexual preference is not a choice

    I happen to believe that sexual orientation is not a choice and that gays should have the right to marry whomever they choose. I like Marco Rubio and that's not just because I'm a U alum as well. He appeals to younger conservatives like myself and does appear to be evolving on the subject of gay marriage, although he doesn't yet believe gay marriage is a constitutional right (probably where I disagree with him the most).

    Anyway - believe it or not - there are many "social" conservatives whom believe gay people were born that way. Now, I just believe we should go all the way and allow gay marriage across the board - older social conservatives (imho) are doing us younger members (whom are the future) of the GOP no justice in their bigotry towards homosexuals. "Oh, but the Bible says!" And that is precisely why the GOP will most likely continue to lose presidential elections - as well as us younger voters.
