Who Is Marco Rubio? A Brand-new Interview

Sarah Pulliam Bailey of Christianity Today just interviewed Florida Senator Marco Rubio about his faith and political views.  It’s a great introduction to Rubio, who is one of the GOP’s most popular–and promising–young politicians.

Q: Would you describe yourself as an evangelical?

A: I’m a Roman Catholic. I’m theologically in line with the Roman Catholic Church. I believe in the authority of the church, but I also have tremendous respect for my brothers and sisters in other Christian faiths. I recognize, as the Catholic Church does, that there are excellent teachings of the Word throughout other denominations. The elements of salvation are found in these churches as well. Some unifying principles bind all Christians: that God became a man and died for our sins, and that without that sacrifice, all of us would be doomed.

Read the whole thing.  If you want to find out how Rubio defines himself spiritually and politically, this is a good place to go.
