Trestin Meacham, the Salt Lake City man who went on a hunger strike to stop gay marriage in Utah, has declared himself a lifetime opponent of the “homosexual movement.”

The day after a federal judge's December 20 ruling struck down Utah's constitutional amendment limiting marriage to heterosexual unions, Meacham jumped into action and stopped eating.

“You can start a blog and you can complain on social networks until you're blue in the face and nothing will happen but actions speak louder than words and I'm taking action,” Meacham, 35, told ABC affiliate 4 Utah of his hunger strike, which he ended after the Supreme Court granted a stay in the ruling.

“Let's be clear about something,” Meacham wrote on Facebook, “my mission, my purpose in life is to stand against the homosexual movement. Not to persecute or hate gay individuals, but to stand against and defeat the homosexual movement.”

“I will never stop, as long as I draw breath,” he added. “I will stand against them when they attack the churches. I will stand against them when they attack individuals. I will stand against them in my old age. I will stand against them in sickness and health. They can kill my body, but my spirit will never submit to their tyranny. I will expose their hate and rage. I will expose their persecution of religion. And I will expose their hidden plans. This secret combination has made a powerful foe. This is only the beginning!”
