Rick Scarborough has bravely declared that he will go to jail and “fight to the death” to stop gay marriage in this country. I’ve noticed that it’s really so much easier to declare one’s willingness to be a martyr when there’s no actual threat of having to follow through on it.
“We don’t capitulate, we fight until we die, we push back with all our might,” Scarborough said. “This is a Dietrich Bonhoeffer moment for every preacher in America. This is a moment where we find whether the Christians who claim to know Jesus really confess Christ, that is what we’re attempting to find out.”
“There’s going to have to be a massive response to this if we get the adverse ruling that from all predictions will come apart from God’s intervention,” he continued…
“Are we going to sit back and let the country be destroyed? Or as believers, are we going to stand up and be counted?” he asked. “As for me and my house, we’re going to serve the Lord for this, we’re going to go to jail if necessary, we are not going to take this just sitting back and watching it.”
Of course you are. Oh, you’ll rage about it for a while. But public opinion will leave you in the dust and you’ll eventually have to move on to the next issue to freak out about so the donations keep rolling in.
