Rand Paul Weighs In On Obama’s View Of Marriage


Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has come under scrutiny for saying he did not believe President Barack Obama’s views on marriage “could get any gayer.”

During a speech at Iowa’s Faith and Freedom Coalition meeting, Paul said: “The President recently weighed in on marriage and you know he said his views were evolving on marriage. Call me cynical, but I wasn’t sure his views on marriage could get any gayer.

“He said the biblical golden rule caused him to be for gay marriage. And I’m like, what version of the Bible is he reading?” Paul continued.

“That doesn’t mean we have to be harsh and mean and hate people. … We are not out there preaching some sort of hateful dogma against people, but that doesn’t mean that we have to go ahead and give up our traditions. We’ve got 6,000 years of tradition. There’s a lot of stability, even beyond religion, there’s stability in the family unit. Just from an anthropological point of view, the family is a really important thing. We shouldn’t just give up on it.”

Paul also addressed abortion during his speech. He said he has helped introduce the Life at Conception Act, the Pro-Life Act, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act and the Human Life Amendment.

For a proper understanding of abortion and government, Paul recommended Abortion and Liberty, a book written by his father, Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul.

Rand Paul added that the 1st Amendment is about keeping government out of religion, not about keeping religious people out of government.
