Christian conservative James Dobson claims in a video message that opponents of marriage equality can expect to be persecuted now that the Supreme Court has ruled that gay couples have a constitutional right to marry.

Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family, which he led until 2003, is the host of Family Talk with Dr. James Dobson, which is broadcast on over 300 radio stations nationwide.

Earlier this year, he predicted civil war if the Supreme Court strikes down state bans on gay marriage.

“This decision will quickly touch every dimension of American life,” Dobson said in an 11-minute video posted on his website. “And the family will be forever changed.”

“I grieve most for what it will do to our children, our grandchildren and future generations. They will be taught that right is wrong and wrong is right. And that the teachings of Scripture are unreliable and inaccurate.”

“Many adopted kids will grow up in homes with same-sex parents, lacking either masculine or feminine role models. They're among the saddest victims of this ruling,” Dobson added.

Dobson added that opponents will also “suffer.”

“Many of us will be dragged into court to be prosecuted or subjected to civil judgments. Some will lose their jobs. Some will lose their professional licenses. Some will be persecuted, ridiculed and fined. Some may go to prison as the years unfold,” he said.
