This past Sunday on CBS' Face the Nation, U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Marco Rubio (R-FL) defended states' rights and the traditional definition of marriage.
"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.
"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," Rubio said.
Rubio also said that he believes that "sexual preference is something that people are born with."
"I also don't believe that your sexual preferences are a choice for the vast and enormous majority of people," Rubio said.
