I’m still highly amused at all of these Christian leaders pledging to “give their lives” and to bravely refuse to follow any Supreme Court ruling that allows gay people to get married. It’s damn easy to refuse to follow a law that doesn’t apply to you in any way. Here’s Mat Staver at the March for Marriage.
Staver, who has recruited hundreds of anti-gay activists to sign onto a pledge to disobey a high court ruling in favor or marriage equality, told the crowd, “As someone who’s argued before the United States Supreme Court, I have great respect for this court, but have no respect and cannot respect a lawless decision.”
Saying that like Dred Scott, a decision in favor of marriage equality would be “contrary to the natural law of God,” Staver said, “As much as I’m an attorney and I respect the rule of law, I also respect the higher law. And when an earthly law collides with the higher law, we have no choice to obey the higher law.”
