Marco Rubio just showed us he is just as much of a two-faced rat as Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz when he stated that “God’s rules always win” over the laws of the land. Despite previously agreeing that the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality was “settled law,” Rubio assured the 700 Club that it wasn’t.
Huckabee and Cruz have both pushed “Christian style” Sharia Law to their fundie right-wing fans as hard while still claiming to support the Constitution. Rubio, however, seemed to at least accept that the law of the land must be followed. That is until a recent appearance on a 700 Club affiliate reminds us, again, this man is not qualified to be president. In a stark display of Christian supremacy, he claimed that marriage equality AND Roe v. Wade are “not settled law.”
While talking about what he believes should happen when law and scripture are conflicting, Rubio stated, “When those two come in conflict, God’s rules always win.” Literally right after saying that Christians are scripturally mandated to adhere to civil authorities. The irony is probably lost on him.
Basically, Rubio is saying that nothing that has already been done to assure rights and equality to all is going to stop him from allowing, and probably encouraging, Christians to break the law. It certainly won’t stop Rubio from trying to return us to the Dark Ages.
Rubio really was looking like the less vitriolic of the fundie whackjobs running for the GOP nomination, but now we know: either he is not the “Constitutional” candidate that he claimed to be or he is not the “Christian Supremacist” candidate that is claiming to be in this interview.
It is perfectly clear that the fact that religion has no place in government is lost on this profoundly anti-equality, anti-woman, anti-family candidate.
Either way, the false jovial respect paid to “family” by the fundie nutjob host at the end of the video rings completely hollow. They say “family” but they mean only “one man and one woman families,” because the rest just don’t rate.
