Christian conservative Bryan Fischer is
calling for civil disobedience if the Supreme Court strikes down
state bans on gay marriage.
The high court is expected to hand down
a ruling next month in a case challenging bans in Ohio, Kentucky,
Michigan and Tennessee.
“This has got to be a non-negotiable
red line for us,” Fischer
told his radio listeners on Wednesday. “It is absolutely
imperative that that we categorically, unambiguously, and publicly
declare that we will NEVER ... accept the normalization of homosexual
marriage, and will NEVER capitulate to any Nazi-esque order from any
government at any level to violate either conscience or biblical
principle on this matter.”
“They can't arrest us all. They
can't prosecute us all. They can't lock us all up. They can't shut
down every Christian-run business. They can't shut down every
Christian-run school. They can't shut down every Bible-believing
church. They can't shut down every Christian ministry.”
“They can't lock us all up. But our
determination to resist moral tyranny must be resolute enough to
prompt them to try,” he concluded.
Fischer is working on the assumption
that all religious Americans are with him, when, in fact, a
plurality of religious Americans support marriage equality.
