CHARLESTON, South Carolina, February 18, 2016 – A pivotal member of Marco Rubio’s campaign actively encouraged the Supreme Court to impose gay “marriage” on the entire nation by judicial fiat.
Senator Rubio’s deputy campaign manager, Rich Beeson, signed a legal brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to redefine marriage in last summer’s Obergefell v. Hodges case.
The amicus curiae brief, which was signed by 300 Republican operatives whose names spill over 24 pages, argued that having the court discover a nationwide right to same-sex “marriage” served “conservative values.”
The state marriage protection amendments defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman “run afoul of our constitutional order by submitting a fundamental right to legislative or popular referendum,” it stated. However, the original intent of the Constitution did not include a right to same-sex “marriage,” as states legally prohibited homosexuality until the Supreme Court struck down anti-sodomy laws in the 2003 Lawrence v. Texas decision.
The Rubio campaign declined LifeSiteNews’ request for comment on the story.
