Sam Rohrer, president of the American and Pennsylvania Pastors Networks, joined Jim Schneider on his “Crosstalk” radio program on Friday to discuss the legalization of same-sex marriage nationwide. Rohrer, a former member of Pennsylvania’s legislature, argued that “God’s law must always reign supreme” and that due to its acceptance of same-sex marriage the U.S. will “go nowhere but down.”
“One of the marks of a nation that is walking away from God that will incur God’s judgement is a nation whose systems and functions and elements of government proclaim to be true what is false and proclaim to be false what is true,” Rohrer said, claiming this occurred when the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage.
“No court has the authority to overturn what God says and what God defines to be a matter of marriage in this case, so that’s the clearest example where man’s law counters what God has said is what something ought to be,” Rohrer said. “God’s law must always reign supreme.”
Rohrer and Schneider accused the government of attempting to force acceptance of same-sex marriage on churches, and Rohrer warned this will lead to America’s demise.
“Only by the grace of God and the help of some human institutions of law that have helped to step in that have, at this point, held it off, but this is the direction that they’re going,” Rohrer said. “Any nation that throws God off and says, ‘We don’t need God’ or ‘We don’t care what God says, as a matter of fact, we’re gonna stick our fingers in his eye and redefine what he says,’ we’ll ultimately find that God will judge that nation — which I believe that God’s judgment is on our nation right now — but ultimately once that happens, you go nowhere but down.”
Last year Rohrer called Russian President Vladimir Putin “the moral leader of the world” for his crackdown on homosexuality.
