Marco Rubio is calling for conservatives to turn America into a theocracy.
During an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, GOP presidential wannabe 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.”

I’m in Iowa — the heartland of America. Earlier today, I sat down with Presidential hopeful Marco Rubio. I asked him about same-sex marriage being so-called "settled law.” He had some interesting things to say about the moral conflict many Christians face when the Bible commands to obey civil authorities but also the overlying mandate to follow God’s law. What do you think of what Rubio had to say? Watch below. We'll have much more on this next week AFTER THANKSGIVING on The 700 Club. This is just a little taste of what's to come.

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.
