Stewart: Rand Paul Talks NSA & ‘Religious Persecution’ [VIDEO]

“It seems like gay marriage looms a lot larger in the minds of certain conservatives than it does in the Bible,” Stewart told the GOP presidential candidate. “And the only thing I would say is, don’t they sell cakes to sinners all the time, adulterers?”

Stewart pointed out that if Paul were to enter a bakery looking for a wedding cake, the staff was not likely to ask him if he broke any commandments.

“It feels disingenuous,” he told the senator.

Instead of responding directly to Stewart’s point, however, Paul steered the discussion toward the Patriot Act.

“What I’ve been filibustering against is whether or not a warrant that has a corporation’s name on it [like] Verizon can collect all the records of all the people if corporations are people,” he said. “So we’re right back to the Patriot Act and I think we agree now.”
