Rubio: ‘God’s Rules’ Trump Supreme Court Decisions
Sen. Marco Rubio called on religious believers to ignore U.S. Supreme Court rulings in favor of “God’s rules.”
“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.
The Hill reports:
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.
Rubio on Tuesday wrapped up his five-day swing through Iowa, which holds the first caucuses next year and has a large, influential evangelical population.
The Florida senator is fourth in the state, with 11.8 percent support, according to a RealClearPolitics average poll, trailing GOP front-runner Donald Trump by nearly 14 points.
