Target: Senator Marco Rubio
Goal: Denounce Marco Rubio for promising to reverse the Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage if he becomes president.
Marco Rubio recently promised to appoint Supreme Court justices who would reverse the historic Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage. This announcement comes despite the fact that recent polling reported that 57 percent of Americans are for same-sex marriage, and just 39 percent are opposed.
Rubio said he doesn’t think the case is closed on the ruling, as it is case law that can be changed by any future Supreme Court. He called the ruling wrong, and said it went against his home state of Florida’s voters who voted to define marriage in the state Constitution as the union of one man and one woman.
Rubio has also discussed his plans to roll back protections for trans people, in an attempt to further isolate the LGBT community.
These conversations and promises don’t align with what the majority of Americans believe and want when it comes to these LGBT issues. Rubio’s comments are a blow to human rights and a sad attempt to fight against equality for all. Tell Rubio his comments are wrong and he won’t be allowed to follow through on such promises.
Dear Senator Rubio,
You’ve recently been discussing your plans to overturn the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage. You also want to roll back protections that have been implemented for trans people. These comments are a threat to equality and American values.
Most Americans are now for same-sex marriage, so your promises go against what the American people actually want. You’re attempting to isolate and restrict LGBT people who have been discriminated against for too long, and you won’t be able to change the new social narrative surrounding them. Your comments and promises are wrong and hateful, and you won’t be able to follow through on them.
[Your Name Here]
