Interesting Quote: Marco Rubio


“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. 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.”

Pandering asshat.
We are not a country of God's laws.

While I believe Rubio to be completely unqualified for the job of president, his statement here doesn't necessarily have anything to do with civil law. If any citizen is presented with a legal requirement to do something he finds morally abhorrent, he SHOULD refuse to do it, and be ready to face the consequences of doing so. Just as Thoreau refused military service during the Mexican War, and then served jail time as a result. Now, if Rubio in fact contended that one should be held immune from legal remedy in ignoring civil law, he would in fact be a total fool...can't say that he didn't or that he's not, but the above statement doesn't make that clear.
