A top Vatican Cardinal, whose name often comes up on the short list of papal candidates, denounced same-sex marriage, transgender bathroom laws while slamming gender theory at a prayer breakfast attended by an estimated 1,000 people, including Paul Ryan, other members of Congress and Catholic bishops, Breitbart reports.

Keynote speaker Cardinal Robert Sarah, one of the highest-ranking members of the Roman Catholic Church, had much to say about so-called social reforms at the annual prayer breakfast in Washington, D.C.

"In your nation, God is being eroded, eclipsed, liquidated," Sarah said, according to CNS News.

On same-sex marriage: "This is not an ideological war between competing ideas. This is about defending ourselves, children and future generations from the demonic idolatry that says children do not need mothers and fathers."

On transgender bathroom laws: "Should not a biological man use the men's restroom? How simpler can that concept be?"

Sarah, appointed Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments by Pope Francis in 2014, likened gender theory to "ideological colonization" and blasted the "insidious" dismantling of religious freedom in the U.S.

"Advanced societies, including, I regret, this nation, have done and continue to do everything possible to legalize such situations," Cardinal Sarah said, according to Life Site. "But this can never be a truthful solution. It is like putting bandages on the infected wound. It will continue to poison the body until antibiotics are taken."
