In a despicable move to try and pander to the republican evangelical base, Marco Rubio said something so perfect imbecilic that it is difficult to believe his brain can generate enough power to move his legs. In a statement to the New York Times about Kim Davis’ refusal to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, Rubio said,
We should seek a balance between government’s responsibility to abide by the laws of our republic and allowing people to stand by their religious convictions,” his first public remarks on the case.
“While the clerk’s office has a governmental duty to carry out the law,” he added, “there should be a way to protect the religious freedom and conscience rights of individuals working in the office.”
Marriage is the most important institution in our society, and I believe it should be between one man and one woman,” he said in his statement. “Our nation was founded on the human right of religious freedom, and our elected leaders have a duty to protect that right by ensuring that no one is forced by the government to violate their conscience and deeply held religious beliefs about traditional marriage.”
Such is Rubio’s sentiment that all religious beliefs should supersede the tenants that our republic is founded upon. Not only does this hapless nitwit want to abrogated 200 years of constitutional law for religious law, he determines that Christianity is the religion that should supplant our constitution. Both state and federal law should kneel to the religious beliefs of a single individual. Thomas Payne is rolling in his grave.
The inherent danger of government recognizing religious beliefs is completely alien to the prodigious buffoon. If not for one billionaire hedge fund manager pumping millions into his campaign, Marco Rubio would be stuck in a corner and forced to wear a dunce cap.
If you weren’t sure if Marco had reached the zenith of bubonic stupidity, then there is this gem from Fox Snooze:
Here we are in 2015 in what republicans like to incessantly iterate is the “greatest country in the world” with crumbling infrastructure and sequestration that took 100,000 first responders out of service and the only things republicans are concerned with is abortion and Planned Parenthood!
Here you go Marco, it’s first for a reason.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
