Marco Rubio is neither for nor against the LGBT community. But he's definitely for the Christian Right.

Now take deep swig of bottled water and explain all of that to us again, Marco.

Actually, Marco has a problem 'splainin himself to everyone. If ever there was a candidate who looks confused while being "certain", it's Rubio:

With Bob Schieffer:

"I don't believe courts should be making that decision, and I don't believe marriage is a constitutional right," he added. "I also don't believe your sexual preferences are a choice for the vast and enormous majority of people. In fact, the bottom line is that I believe that sexual preference is something that people are born with."

By saying that being gay is not a choice is Rubio giving a hand the the lgbt community? But yet be says that marriage in itself is not a constitutional right. WTF ? Don't discriminate, but don't give people rights, either.

Oh, but he DID say that he would attend a gay wedding. BFD.

But you can't talk nicey-nice to gays while courting the likes of Tony Perkins.

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, which lobbies against same-sex marriage, said socially conservative candidates in 2016 will face the challenge of "distinguishing themselves in a crowded field, so there are those who are going to try to solidify support early. Sen. Rubio has hit a stride where he's comfortable talking about these issues, even though some people in his party are not."

So ... in Iowa:

Rubio drew loud applause when he said the institution of marriage consists of one man and one woman.

Scheiffer To The Rescue:

In his appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday, anchor Bob Schieffer introduced Perkins by saying "we have been inundated by people who say we should not even let you appear because they, in their view -- quote -- you don't speak for Christians."

The Cordileone Conundrum:

CBS SF reports:

In a written statement, the Archdiocese of San Francisco said other Catholic bishops from around the country will attend the March for Marriage, saying it allows Cordileone to "remain home and attend to the pastoral needs of the Church here at this time."
