GOP lawmaker: 'Nearly everything that plagues our society' is because of marriage equality
C-SPAN/screen grab

Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) argued on Tuesday that nearly every problem in modern-day society was created by not following "God's rules" for marriage.

The remarks came while Good was speaking on the House floor in opposition to a bill that would reauthorize the Family Violence and Prevention Services program.

Good said that he opposed the bill because "it would insert gender identity language into U.S. code."

"And isn't that the objective of this administration, this majority, to force faith-based providers out of business and to redefine sex and to change the identification of gender?" he opined. "My colleagues on the other side claim they want to protect the family but instead they've chosen to attack the very bedrock of our country, the moral principles and the traditional family that hold our families and communities together."

"In fact, nearly everything that plagues our society can be attributed to a failure to follow God's laws for morality and his rules and definition of marriage and family," he added.
