This weekend at the Faith and Freedom Coalition meeting in Iowa, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) joked about President Obama's position on gay marriage (video below).
Despite Sen. Paul’s libertarian views, he does not support gay marriage, but does favor allowing states to decide on gay marriage, which is also Pres. Obama’s position.
Sen. Paul said: “Call me cynical, but I wasn’t sure his views on marriage could get any gayer.”
His remarks have been condemned my numerous people on the right, including Family Research Council President Tony Perkins (video below).
On 'Face the Nation' on Sunday, Perkins said: "I don’t think it’s a laughing matter. I don’t think this is something we should joke about. Ah, we’re talking about individuals who feel very strongly one way or the other, and I think we should be civil, respectful, allowing all sides to have the debate…but I think this is not something to laugh about, to poke fun of other people about."
