Christian conservative pastor Rick
Scarborough claims members of Congress are “lining up” to sign a
document vowing to defy a Supreme Court ruling striking down gay
Scarborough, a vocal opponent of gay
rights, told WND.com that once gay couples can marry in all 50
states, there will be mass arrests of Christians.
If such unions become legal, then the
government “better have a lot of prisons and jails,” Scarborough
According to WND, Scarborough has
joined with James Dobson of Family Talk Radio, Mat Staver of Liberty
Counsel and James Robison of Life Today to write the statement.
“We're taking a very adamant stand,”
said. “If the court declares same-sex marriage to be on the
same par as a civil right, that's a bridge too far. We won't obey.
We'll go to jail.”
Members of Congress are “lining up to
sign the document,” he said.
“We will simply refuse to comply with
recognizing same-sex marriage as legitimate. The Supreme Court does
not have the inherent right [to make that change]. We're going to
continue doing what we've always done,” he added.
