Rand Paul says LGBT people should leave their personal lives at home

While campaigning for the GOP nomination for the presidency in Iowa, Senator Rand Paul responded to a question about LGBT workplace discrimination by implying that people who encounter anti-LGBT discrimination should feel free to find another job.

“I think really, the things you do in your house we could just leave those in your house and they wouldn’t have to be part of the workplace, to tell you the truth,” Paul said.

“I don’t know that we need to keep adding to different classifications to say the government needs to be involved in the hiring and firing,” he continued. “I think society is rapidly changing, and if you are gay, there are plenty of places that will hire you.”
