On today’s “Faith and Freedom” radio program, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver declared that the fight against gay marriage will never end because marriage equality is a direct assault on God.
After praising Florida Gov. Rick Scott for signing the “Pastor Protection Act,” which shields churches and pastors from being sued for refusing to perform same-sex marriages (something they were already allowed to do), Staver declared that such laws need to be passed all over the country because the fight to undo marriage equality will never stop.
“This issue of marriage,” he said, “this attempted redefinition of marriage, some have said, ‘Well, it’s over with, the Supreme Court has decided, let’s move on;’ even some presidential candidates, past and present, have made that kind of a statement. What they don’t realize is this is not over, it will never be over and there will never be churches, pastors and people of Christian faith and values who will accept this. Period.”
“I think that we can ultimately reverse this trend as well,” Staver continued. “Pendulums swing and I believe that if you remain faithful, you will ultimately be encouraged by being on the right side of history. People say, ‘Well, you’re on the wrong side of history.’ I would rather be on the side of God’s history and the natural created order, millennia of human history than some newfangled idea. This is an assault on marriage and family, our freedom and an assault on God himself.”
