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 war,” Garlow 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.
