Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio on Wednesday said that rulings that conflict with “God's rules” can be ignored.

The Florida senator made his remarks in an interview with David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN).

Rubio told Brody that the Supreme Court's ruling on marriage equality (Obergefell) and abortion rights (Roe) were “not settled law.”

People, Rubio said, should “ignore” high court rulings if 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,” Rubio 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.”
