United States Senator Rand Paul commented on President Barack Obama’s public disclosure of his views on same-sex marriage, as he stated at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition:
“The president recently weighed in on marriage – and uhm, you know – he said his views were evolving on marriage and call me cynical, but I wasn’t sure that his views on marriage could get any gayer. Now it did kind of bother me, though, that he used the justification for it in a biblical reference. He said the biblical golden rule caused him to be for gay marriage. And I’m like, what version of the bible is he reading from? It’s not the King James version, it’s not the New American Standard, it’s not the New Revised version. I don’t know what version he’s getting that from.”
The 49-year-old Kentucky Senator and member of the Tea Party continued to talk about sin, family, tradition, and how the country is in a “spiritual crisis” that will require “leaders beyond your political leaders.” Now, if you’re wondering who these leaders will be, Paul proposes:
“You need people like Senator Grassley and hopefully myself to try to fix some of these problems.”
Will Sen. Rand Paul and Grassley be capable of resolving our “political problems” and “spiritual crisis?” The junior senator seemed to answer this simple inquiry as he stated:
“I don’t think that we’re going to fix all of them. I think there are problems beyond the political discourse.”
What do you think of 2012 Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul’s son, Randal Howard “Rand” Paul, and his commentary regarding President Obama’s stance on gay marriage?
