California pastor Jim Garlow on
Wednesday equated reversing gay marriage gains to ending slavery.
Garlow, who currently heads the Skyline
Wesleyan Church in La Mesa, California, made his comment during an
appearance on the radio program Washington Week, which is
hosted by Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins.
“This is going to be a very winnable
said. “It's going to take us a long time, we don't doubt that.
Abortion took a long time. Slavery took an excess of 70 years, once
you add it all it'd take up over 100 years of fighting slavery.”
“We're going to have to battle for a
long time, but we don't roll over on fundamental biblical issues.”
He added that it is “not a time”
for pastors opposed to LGBT rights to “capitulate” to the
“bullying and the badgering and the clubs that come at them from
the radical homosexual agenda.”
Garlow also reiterated his analogy
equating homosexuality to improper plumbing or electrical wiring.
“I live in a home and most or all of
your listeners live in a home or an apartment or a condo, and when
the plumber and the electrician built the home, they knew the
difference between the male and female ends of a pipe and the male
and female ends of an electrical current, and if they had simply
said, ‘I’m going to put the male and male ends of the pipes
together,’ nobody would want to live in that home, it doesn't
work,” Garlow said.
