Recent events in the U.S. are destroying Americans’ ability to connect to God, according to Cardinal Robert Sarah, a native of the West African nation of Guinea.

In a keynote address at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., Tuesday, Cardinal Sarah said that in the United States, “God is being eroded, eclipsed, liquidated,” Catholic News Agency reports.

Cardinal Sarah pointed out specific events “in the name of ‘tolerance'” that have contributed to this erosion, including “the legalization of same sex marriage, the obligation to accept contraception within health care programs, and even ‘bathroom bills’ that allow men to use the women’s restrooms and locker rooms.”

“Should not a biological man use the men’s restroom?” he said in his prepared remarks. “How simpler can that concept be?”

He further warned that subversions of the church’s teachings – including a “demonic ‘gender ideology'” – could lead to the family unit becoming “a place where human beings can be humanly and spiritually wounded.”

To combat these subversions, Cardinal Sarah encouraged the audience to “be prophetic, be faithful, and above all, pray.”

“In the end, it is God or nothing.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sister Constance Veit of the Little Sisters of the Poor also delivered remarks prior to the cardinal’s keynote address.
