Back in July, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver spoke at the Reclaiming America for Christ conference in Oklahoma where he spent a half-hour absolutely fuming about the Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling, calling it a “grave sin” that would lead America “into the very pit of Hell.”
Staver, who has recently been leading Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis’ unsuccessful legal battle, was beside himself with outrage, declaring that neither the Supreme Court nor any state could ever legalize gay marriage because doing so contradicts the will of God and therefore Christians have no choice but to resist with all their might.
“We need to stop playing charades,” Staver thundered, “thinking that five individuals can re-write God’s natural, created order of marriage as a union of a man and a woman, and 320 million Americans are simply just going to follow them like the Pied Piper off the cliff into the very pit of Hell. If that’s what they think, they have something else coming because as for me and my household, I will not obey those five! I will obey God rather than man and they have shaken their fist in the face of the Creator and we must resist that.”
The ruling, he warned, “is a grave sin. There will be judgment on those five unless they repent.”
