American Christian leaders call for disobedience if the same-sex marriage will be legalized in US

 

A group of prominent religious leaders reacted to the Supreme Court of the United States consideration of same-sex marriage with the warning: "We will not obey"

In their document "Pledge in Solidarity to Defend Marriage" they say: "We respectfully warn the Supreme Court not to cross that line. We stand united together in defense of marriage. Make no mistake about our resolve."

"While there are many things we can endure, redefining marriage is so fundamental to the natural order and the common good that this is the line we must draw and one we cannot and will not cross," the pledge states.

One of the author of the pledge Mat Staver, the founder of Liberty Counsel, declared : "We're sending a warning to the Supreme Court and frankly any court that crosses the line on the issue of marriage. Once same-sex marriage is elevated to the level of protected status - it will transform the face of society and will result in the "beginning of the end of Western Civilization."

And that means the possibility of Christians - people of faith - engaging in acts of civil disobedience. "I'm talking about resistance and I'm talking about peaceful resistance against unjust laws and unjust rulings" - added Staver.

James Dobson, the founder of Family Talk Radio said : "For about 50 years the homosexual community has had as its goal to change the culture, to change the ideology and if necessary - to force people who don't agree by use of the courts. I think there's a collision here and we can all see it and where it's going to go is anybody's guess - but it is serious."
