On Wednesday, Marco Rubio sat down with Politico's Mike Allen at a Playbook breakfast and made it clear that he does know that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old, even though he once said the age of the Earth is one of the great mysteries. But he's no scientist, man. So, hey.
Rubio said that he still believes that God totally created the universe and that it's possible to believe in creationism as well as science.
Lost in the whole age-of-the-Earth talk was when Allen straight up asked Rubio if he thought homosexuality is a sin.
"Well, I can tell you what faith teaches," Rubio responded. "And faith teaches that it is. And that's what the Bible teaches, and that's what faith teaches."
The Bible also teaches that God repays his enemies by throwing their babies up against rocks. So you better watch out if you know what's good for you, babies!
"It also teaches that there are a bunch of other sins that are no less," Rubio continued. "For example, it teaches that lying is a sin. It teaches that disrespecting your parents is a sin. It teaches that stealing is a sin. It teaches that coveting your neighbor and what your neighbor has is a sin. So there isn't a person in this room that isn't guilty of sin."
But Rubio made it clear that, even though The Gays are going to burn in hell fire for all of eternity because of all the gaying around that they do, he's not going around pointing his finger at them.
Only making policy decisions that negatively impact their lives, is all.
"I don't go around pointing fingers in that regard," he said. "I'm responsible for my salvation, and I'm responsible for my family's and for inculcating in my family what our faith teaches, and they'll become adults and decide how they want to apply that in life. As a policymaker, I could just tell you that I'm informed by my faith. And my faith informs me in who I am as a person -- but not as a way to pass judgment on people."
Hey, man. Marco ain't judge.
When he opposed allowing same-sex couples in Florida to adopt children, that was totally his faith, guy.
When he said he opposed making it illegal to fire someone just for being LGBT, that's totally the Bible talking there, bro.
When he made robocalls for the hate-group National Organization for Marriage last month telling people to vote against making gay marriage legal, that was just his faith being all judgmenty not wanting the gays to gay up America with their gay marriages, guybro.
There is no judgment. There is only making policy decisions that keep people from being happy and living their lives as they wish.
Just like the Bible teaches!
