Marco Rubio Warns “We are at the Water’s Edge of the Argument that Mainstream Christian Teaching is Hate Speech”!

GOP Presidential candidate and Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) was a guest on CBN’s the Brody File on Tuesday where he discussed a wide range of topics, including his personal story, keeping our priorities straight, and the danger religious liberty in America faces today. He spoke most eloquently on that final topic, clearly articulating just how dangerous our current position is, as a certain segment of culture is seemingly hell-bent on ending religious freedom in America.

“If you think about it, we are at the water’s edge of the argument that mainstream Christian teaching is hate speech,” Rubio told CBN News. “Because today we’ve reached the point in our society where if you do not support same-sex marriage you are labeled a homophobe and a hater.”

 

 

Today, his deep faith drives public policy positions on social issues such as traditional marriage.

“If you think about it, we are at the water’s edge of the argument that mainstream Christian teaching is hate speech,” Rubio told CBN News. “Because today we’ve reached the point in our society where if you do not support same-sex marriage you are labeled a homophobe and a hater.”

“So what’s the next step after that?” he asked.

“After they are done going after individuals, the next step is to argue that the teachings of mainstream Christianity, the catechism of the Catholic Church is hate speech and there’s a real and present danger,” he warned.

Marco RubioRubio said he’s ready to face danger, here and around the world.

“You don’t want to be engaged in every conflict on the planet. We’re not the world’s policemen,” he said. “But I question – what would happen in the alternative? If America doesn’t lead, what happens? Well, what happens is chaos.”

 

Here’s how serious this problem is – a mainstream GOP candidate (Rubio) is considered wildly and horrifyingly conservative by the mainstream liberal media, and he’s talking about the danger to religious liberty and free speech from the mainstream left!

Not very long ago it would be unheard of to think that any Democrat candidate would be arguing that religious freedom or free speech should be curtailed… but that is where we are today. Far from a “slippery slope,” the collapse of our liberties has happened rather suddenly and rather loudly. The fascist left decided that conservatives and religious traditionalists were bigoted, hate mongers who do not deserve the protections of the law, so they swiftly moved to demand that we not be allowed to hold our unpopular opinions. They also fought on a cultural level to demonize and minimize us as pointless and counter-productive to the cultural zeitgeist. Their efforts have led us here… to “the Water’s Edge of the Argument that Mainstream Christian Teaching is Hate Speech.”

Now the question is… how do we fix this?
