Marco Rubio, Florida Senator and Presidential Candidate, stated to CBN News that due to the recent infringement on free speech rights, there is a real danger to Christianity in this country. Rubio, a Christian himself, sees the family as the highest form of social order in the world. He believes that the recent attempts to redefine marriage as an unnatural entity in same-sex marriage will pervert the social order, and in doing so, act against Christian principles.
Rubio comments on the attack on the family stating:
"If you think about it, we are at the water's edge of the argument that mainstream Christian teaching is hate speech," Rubio told CBN News. "Because today we've reached the point in our society where if you do not support same-sex marriage you are labeled a homophobe and a hater."
"So what's the next step after that?" he asked.
"After they are done going after individuals, the next step is to argue that the teachings of mainstream Christianity, the catechism of the Catholic Church is hate speech and there's a real and present danger," he warned.
He warns that if America doesn’t lead the world in social and economic issues that the world will spin into chaos; such as in Ireland recently.
"You don't want to be engaged in every conflict on the planet. We're not the world's policemen," he said. "But I question - what would happen in the alternative? If America doesn't lead, what happens? Well, what happens is chaos."
