Rubio: No ‘Right’ To Gay Marriage

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said it's "ridiculous and absurd" to believe there's a constitutional right to same-sex marriage, weighing in on the issue ahead of a landmark Supreme Court case. "It doesn’t exist. There is no federal constitutional right to same sex-marriage. There isn’t such a right," the 2016 hopeful said during an interview this weekend with Christian Broadcasting Network's The Brody File. "You would have to really have a ridiculous and absurd reading of the U.S. Constitution to reach the conclusion that people have a right to marry someone of the same sex." Rubio's remarks were captured in a blog post Monday by the progressive group's People For the American Way's Right Wing Watch project/The Hill. More here.

Question: Do you agree/disagree with Sen. Marco Rubio?
