Marco Rubio on Face the Nation: 'Sexual preference is something that people are born with'

via @learyreports

Sen. Marco Rubio said Sunday on Face the Nation that he thinks people are born with their sexual orientation but that marriage should be between a man and a woman.

"It's not that I'm against gay marriage. I believe the definition of the institution of marriage should be between one man and one woman," Rubio said." "States have always regulated marriage. And if a state wants to have a different definition, you should petition the state legislature and have a political debate. I don't think courts should be making that decision."

"I don't believe same-sex marriage is a Constitutional right. I also don't believe that your sexual preferences are a choice for the vast and enormous majority of people. In fact...I believe that sexual preference is something that people are born with."
