Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) says that he believes people of faith should ignore laws that violate their religion.

Marco Rubio is calling for conservatives to turn America into a theocracy.

During an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Marco Rubio pandered to conservative Christians by basically telling them that they can ignore any laws they don’t like as long as they can find a biblical reason to do so.

Rubio specifically took aim at a woman’s right to choose, expressing his desire to see women lose their constitutional right to have an abortion.

“It’s current law; it’s not settled law. 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.”

Rubio said that “God’s rules” are higher than Supreme Court law, which somehow justifies his crusade to oppress women and discriminate against gay people.

“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. We cannot to abide by that because government is compelling us to sin. So when those two come into conflict, God’s rules always win.”

Then he urged conservatives to use the government process to turn our nation into a theocracy.

“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.”

Here’s the video via Facebook.

The Bible has zero legal standing in our system of government. The Supreme Court is the highest authority on the law in our country, not God. The Constitution makes that incredibly clear since it made no mention of God or the Bible, while specifically stating that the Supreme Court is the final arbiter of what is constitutional.

Any candidate who believes otherwise should be automatically disqualified from seeking public office.

  1. The very first line of the very First Amendment…Congress shall pass NO law respecting ANY religion. I am beginning to think christians are illiterate. They don’t read the constitution and they sure as hell don’t read their bibles!

  2. At one time, racial segregation was perfectly constitutionak according to the Supreme Court. Would those criticizing Rubio here have told Thurgood Marshall to shove it when he tried to change that?

  3. I don't think it is necessary to debate the present system to his theocratic 1984 nightmare. Rubio should just stick to his church or scientology or whatever and stop trying to cram his religious views down everyone's throat. But I do blame us mostly for giving him voice and a place to disseminate his weirdo theocracy. If we just ignore him, I feel he'll go away. Our constitution is the law of the land period and that is why it is so very difficult to change it, so that people like Rubio can't impose such draconian anti-human efforts on us.

  4. It is time to remove the tax free status for religious organizations, contributions, activities.
    All church properties should be taxed just as any other business. Entertainment is more important to most Americans than religious activities, if churches are tax free then nightclubs, ball parks / stadiums, auto and horse racetracks should all be tax free! More people enjoy those activities than church activities!

  5. We really do need a WALL, not to keep out immigrants fleeing a Central or South American country our CIA destabilized, but a WALL to separate Church and State.

    Rubio and his right wing nuts would have us return to the Dark Ages, when religious belief and superstition were the law of the land.
