Sen. Marco Rubio, (R-FL), warned in a speech Wednesday that there was a “growing intolerance” toward those who support traditional marriage.
Speaking at the Catholic University of America, Rubio cited various instances of intolerance:
We have seen the push to remove the CEO of Mozilla because, in 2008, he made a small donation to support Proposition 8 in California, which would have upheld the traditional definition of marriage. We have seen the CEO of Starbucks tell a shareholder who supports traditional marriage that he should sell his shares and invest in some other company. And we’ve seen Chick-fil-A attacked and boycotted due to its CEO giving an honest answer to a question regarding his deeply held religious beliefs.
“I promise you,” Rubio added, “that even before this speech is over, I will be attacked as a hater, a bigot or someone who is anti-gay.” ...More HERE
