Tony Perkins, president of the Christian conservative Family Research Council (FRC), said Thursday that advances in gay rights will bring about the “dissolution of the republic.”

Perkins made his remarks Thursday, just days after Oregon and Pennsylvania became the latest states to allow gay couples to marry.

Perkins told Janet Mefferd that the debate over marriage is “literally about the entire culture.”

“This is about the rule of law, it's about the country, it's about our future. Because we have seen now that it's about redefining the curriculum in our schools, it's about driving a wedge between parent and child, this is about the loss of religious freedom, the inability to be who we are as a people.”

“I think what they're doing here, two things, one they are sowing the seeds of the disillusion of our republic, because if once we lose the rule of law, we've lost what holds us together. And I think there's coming a point that they're going to push Christians to a point where they're not going to be pushed anymore and I think we're very quickly coming to that point,” Perkins added.

What about Christians who support gay rights? Perkins last week said their views don't count.
