Tony Perkins, the president of the Christian conservative Family Research Council (FRC), has predicted a revolution over gay marriage.

While discussing the string of wins for marriage equality on Election Day, Perkins declared that the Supreme Court would be facing a revolt from Christian conservatives if it legalized marriage for gay couples.

Marriage equality, like abortion, runs “counter to natural law,” Perkins told Peter Sprigg on AFA radio.

“I think if the court steps in at this moment and says, 'We're redefining marriage, same-sex marriage will be the law in every land.' I'm telling you what, I think you will crate a firestorm of opposition. I think that could be the straw that broke the camel's back. When you look at a nation that is so divided along these moral and cultural issues, that you could have – you know I hate to use the word – but, I mean a revolt. A revolution. I think you could see Americans saying, 'You know what? Enough of this.' And I think it could explode and just break this nation apart,” he explained. (The video is embedded on this page.
