Perhaps seeking to blunt that criticism, Rubio acknowledged the United States has a history of discrimination against gays and lesbians. He added that his opponents pose what he called legitimate policy questions and urged a respectful discussion going forward: “Tolerance is also a two-way street.”
But he said he could not support such marriages despite a quick-moving shift in public opinion on allowing same-sex couples to marry.
“There is a growing intolerance on this issue,” Rubio said of those who back same-sex marriages. “This intolerance in the name of tolerance is hypocrisy.”
Headline = point.
Also, it should be noted…no one is trying to deny the rights of folks like Rubio to marry, if one somehow feels inclined to cast him as the victim of the “folks who aren’t me”-marriage debate.
