“Sexual preferences are a choice for the vast and enormous majority of people. In fact, the bottom line is, I believe sexual preference is something that people are born with,” said Rubio on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
In an interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos last week, Rubio, who is a strong Catholic also explained that despite his religious beliefs he would attend a gay wedding if it was for a family member or a friend.
“If it’s somebody in my life that I care for, of course I would,” Rubio told Ramos when asked if he would attend a gay wedding for a gay close friend or family member.
“I’m not going to hurt them simply because I disagree with a choice they’ve made or because I disagree with a decision they’ve made, or whatever it may be,” he added. “Ultimately, if someone that you care for and is part of your family has decided to move in one direction or another or feels that way because of who they love, you respect that because you love them.”
“I’m a member of the Catholic faith that teaches, for example, that divorce is wrong,” he continued. “But if someone gets divorced, I’m not going to stop loving them or having them [be] a part of our lives.”
