Marco Rubio hires prominent anti-gay spokesperson for presidential campaign

Senator Marco Rubio once whined that " if you do not support same-sex marriage you are labeled a homophobe and a hater." I wonder if he would play the victim if folks reminded him of the past words of his new hire; his director of faith outreach for his presidential campaign, Eric Teetsel:

"In  Obergefell, the highest court in the land has done more than merely allow for citizens to do wrong; it has bestowed its imprimatur to homosexuality as both an identity and a way of life,"  (Eric) Teetsel blogged in First Things. "A significant cultural impediment has been removed, and so sin will spread. This is regrettable because sin, of course, leads to suffering. As our LGBT neighbors continue to experience the ravages of their sin, will anyone be there to explain to them its cause?" Teetsel added: "This is the job of a Christian. Like Christ, we are to meet others in the midst of their pain in order to point them toward the better way on the narrow road."

According to the Huffington Post, who broke the news, comments from Rubio's campaign spokesman have yet to be returned.
