Rubio says gay marriage ruling isn’t ‘settled law’ cuz it conflicts with ‘God’s rules’

Marco Rubio continued his charm offensive with social conservative homophobes Wednesday when he told David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network that the Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriage and abortion are “not settled law” and that we are “called” to try to change them.

Brian Tashman of Right Wing Watch has the details:

The Republican presidential candidate said that states should “do everything possible within the constraints that its placed upon us” to curtail abortion rights, before insisting that government officials “ignore” Supreme Court rulings if they believe they conflict with “God’s rules.”

“We are clearly called, in the Bible, to adhere to our civil authorities, but that conflicts with also a requirement to adhere to God’s rules,” he said. “When those two come in conflict, God’s rules always win. 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 abide by that because government is compelling us to sin.”

Rubio has stepped up his clarion call to homophobes lately with his hiring of homo-hater Eric Teetsel as his “faith” outreach director and his insistence that denying same-sex couples marriage equality isn’t “about discriminating against anyone.”
