Joseph Farah, editor-in-chief of the Christian conservative website WorldNetDaily (WND), says being opposed to marriage equality is itself a sexual orientation.

In a WND op-ed titled The Same-Sex Marriage Tyranny, Farah argues that laws which prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation protect marriage equality foes because that's their orientation.

“Are they not being coerced to accept and approve someone else's sexual orientation?” Farah said. “Are they not permitted to hold their own sexual orientation, one that acknowledges their God's definition that marriage is a union of one man and one woman?”

“They are being coerced by the state to take part in the sexual choices and activities of others.”

“Isn't that obvious?”

Farah later compares gay rights and Islamic radicals.

“Some people are trying to get the state to force those with different values, morals and religious idea to serve them in ways that violate their consciences.”

“I only see that kind of coercion demanded among two groups of people today – those who believe in the unlimited power of the state as their 'god' and others who believe their god wants them to kill or subjugate all 'infidels.'”
