Today's featured Republican is the well known Marco Rubio. Today he decided to out himself. As an idiot. How you might ask? By declaring that the special right of not being fired for an immutable characteristic like being Gay is a special right.
I've lived through most of my life without this protection. It is wonderful to see someone blame me for their biases by denying me the ability to care for myself and my family.
Isn't that what family values is all about?
WASHINGTON, DC — Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who is touted as a top GOP presidential prospect in 2016, thinks it should be legal to fire someone for their sexual orientation.
ThinkProgress spoke with the Florida Senator at the opening luncheon of the annual Faith and Freedom Forum on Thursday and asked him about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), a bill to make discrimination against LGBT individuals illegal across the country.
Though Rubio bristles at the notion of being called a “bigot,” he showed no willingness to help protect LGBT workers from discrimination. “I’m not for any special protections based on orientation,” Rubio told ThinkProgress.
