Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality described the 2015 Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, which effectively legalized same-sex marriages in the United States, as one of the “most wicked decisions to come out of the court.”

LaBarbera joined American Family Radio host Janet Mefferd on Friday to promote a Washington, D.C., anti-LGBTQ rally in front of the Supreme Court that is scheduled to take place this Wednesday. The rally will feature several anti-LGBTQ Religious Right figures including LaBarbera, pastor Scott Lively, and Liberty Counsel’s Jonathan Alexander, who will join others in protesting the court’s Obergefell ruling.

Mefferd said that the Supreme Court ruling on the case was “based on a lie” that resulted in the country paying a price for “shaking our fist in the face of God.” LaBarbera described the court’s decision as “the height of arrogance,” that Obergefell was one of “the most wicked decisions to come out of the court.”

“It paved the way for the indoctrination and the confusion of children—the intentional confusion of children according to the leftist dictate,” LaBarbera said.
