“If same-sex so-called marriage is established as the law of the land, many of the people who are listening to my voice right now, not maybe immediately but at some point in the future, if they are followers of Christ, will be forced underground. Their buildings will be taken away from them, many of their rights will be taken away from them.” – Pastor Jim Garlow, who also said that gay people don’t actually want to get married, but rather are determined to “destroy marriage” and “force us to affirm an immoral behavior”.
“The only relationship in natural law that can produce consumers is the relationship between a man and a woman. When you create a society that does not recognize this relationship as the foundation of its existence and you cease to produce what is required to sustain your economy, you will not survive.” – Matthew Hagee (son of pastor John Hagee), warning that legal gay marriage will spell “the death of capitalism”.
“If you want to understand the homosexual movement, it’s a movement at war with nature, with God and with truth.” – Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality.
“[Any Supreme Court decision that does not prohibit gay marriage] will be the nail in the coffin of the credibility of the entire judicial system… [The Supreme Court] will have lost its legitimacy in its entirety.” – Matt Barber & Mat Staver of Liberty Council. Staver is also vice president of the Jerry Falwell-founded Liberty University.
