I'm not worried about President Trump or Carson. I'm worried about President Rubio.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) says religious believers are called to “ignore” laws that violate their faith.
“In essence, if we are ever ordered by a government authority to personally violate and sin — violate God’s law and sin — if we’re ordered to stop preaching the Gospel, if we’re ordered to perform a same-sex marriage as someone presiding over it, we are called to ignore that,” Rubio said in an interview with CBN on Tuesday.
“So when those two come into conflict, God’s rules always win,” he added.
Rubio said Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision creating a constitutional right to abortion, is open to revision.
“It’s current law; it’s not settled law,” he said. “No law is settled. Roe v. Wade is current law, but it doesn’t mean that we don’t continue to aspire to fix it, because we think it’s wrong.”
The Republican presidential candidate, who is rising in the polls, encouraged the faithful to work within the political process to change laws that violate their conscience.
“If you live in a society where the government creates an avenue and a way for you to peacefully change the law, then you’re called to participate in that process to try to change it,” he said.
Once again, this is a supposedly serious presidential candidate openly saying that rule of law and the US Constitution are both meaningless, because God. What the Supreme Court determines as constitutional has no value because no law is settled. Rubio will just ignore the laws he doesn't like.
There's a word for that.
It's called "theocracy". And this is supposedly the least insane of the GOP candidates.
Republicans cannot be allowed to win in 2016, or we lose the country.
