Marco Rubio: Sure, I’d Attend A Friend’s Gay Wedding

gayrubioNot only have I never heard this specific question put to a top Republican, I’m not even sure what the “conservative answer” should be. Rubio opposes legalizing gay marriage and supports the right of Christian business owners to refuse service for a gay wedding (although not to gay customers generally), positions informed by his religious belief that marriage is a sacred commitment between men and women. If you believe that, though, then why agree to participate in a gay wedding ceremony yourself by attending? Rubio’s answer, as always, is savvy, and effective in no small part because of its simplicity: “How you treat a person that you care for and love is different from what your opinion is or what your faith teaches marriage should be.”
