Hundreds Of Anti-Gay Activists Pledge To Defy Any Supreme Court Ruling Favoring Marriage Equality

Screen Shot 2013-06-21 at 3.27.02 PM

Over two hundred Christian anti-gay activists and organizations have signed a letter threatening to ignore any upcoming Supreme Court ruling favoring gay marriage. The letter, filled with inflammatory rhetoric, has been signed by a "who's who" of anti-gay bigots including Dr. Ben Carson, Tony Perkins, Bill Donohue, Bishop Harry Jackson, James Dobson, and Oklahoma state Rep. Sally Kern. Additionally, Southern Poverty Law Center designated "hate groups" such as American Family Association and Family Research Council have also signed on.

From the letter:

"As Christian citizens united together, we will not stand by while the destruction of the institution of marriage unfolds in this nation we love. The Sacred Scriptures and unbroken teaching of the Church confirm that marriage is between one man and one woman. We stand together in solidarity to defend marriage and the family and society founded upon them. The effort to redefine marriage threatens the proper mediating role of the Church in society."

The letter goes on to say that "redefining marriage" is the "line we must not draw and one we cannot and will not cross." Considering the fact that Tony Perkins and others have predicted that any ruling in favor of gay marriage will lead to civil war or revolution, one has to wonder just how these anti-gay bigots intend to resists such a ruling.

  1. What they going to do? I wouldn't want one of them to perform a marriage ceremony for me and I sure as hell don't want to marry any of them. What they going to do? Have a hissy fit when gays start getting married.

  2. They said that about Obamacare too. Good luck with that.

  3. What's the point of this? They wouldn't be forced to marry same sex couples anyways, so what would they be defying?

  4. sound and fury signifying nothing.

  5. I think they are going to hold their breath until they turn blue. Then everyone will be sorry. It's sad when adults have temper tantrums.

  6. Who needs the constitution when we have a bible we can interpret any way we want

  7. Good. That'll make it so much easier when the Gaystapo starts rounding up the Christians and hauling them to concentration camps or when we start to beat them and persecute them in the streets or whatever conspiracy-martyr fantasy they come up with next week.

  8. I couldn't even begin to tell you how big a sh!t I don't give.

    And "defy"? WTF does that even mean? They can stamp their teeny weeny little feet to their hearts' content but if people are legally married they're legally married? What's to defy?

    And yeah, "holding their breath until they turn blue" is about the size of it.

  9. Don't go near there Andy. I don't want to see a scratch on that pretty face. Don't be so naive everyone. This was expected and there will be more. You've been watching celebrities promoting gay marriage. These are the masses. They hate gays (just like we wiser ones always knew) It's not comedy to them.

  10. They're going to defy the decision by resolutely refusing to get married to anyone of the same sex. That'll show the rest of us!

  11. Obviously they do not read their own precious bible, where marriage is between a man and his multiple wives, his concubine, his servants and whom ever else happens to walk by.

  12. Great, so we here in OK have a state representative vowing to disobey the laws she has swore to uphold. Thank her godling that she doesn't represent me. Needs to be recalled for signing onto that letter alone.

  13. Cry your sob story to the dwindling number of bigots that are still brainwashed enough to accept your lies. The 60% (and growing) of Americans who now support LGBT equality recognize you for exactly what you are ... extremists poisoned by hate.

  14. Since marriage equality doesn't affect them in any real way, I'm not sure what they are defying? The temptation to marry a person of the same sex? (Not that any sane gay person would marry any fugly face among them.) Will they poke their eyes out so they don't have to see married gay couples wandering about? Manually put their panties in a twist?

    Not that they'll believe it, but someone needs to send them a memo that the backlash over marriage equality in every place that has it has the shelf life of a carton of milk. The vast majority just doesn't give a hoot once the bigoted dust settles, contrary to what the fear-mongers believe.

  15. I guess I should not be expecting any wedding anniversary presents from these folks. But just in case they change their minds: 5th Anniversary is Pacifier.

  16. Can't wait to see how they resist and defy the law. Send them all to jail so that they can fulfill their wish to be martyrs.

  17. This just laying the groundwork to claim victim status when they are required to provide services to gay weddings. It's the florist thing all over again. They're also going to claim that their freedom of speech is being suppressed because there are ramifications (boycotts) for businesses that make their anti-gay policies known.

  18. It's like a Who's Who of who cares!

  19. ...yawn...

  20. Maybe they won't have to protest anything -- or only half of it.

    Posted by: Jake | Jun 21, 2013 7:39:53 PM


  21. Ha, Ha, Ha. Cry me a river you fairy tale believing bigots.

  22. Someone please have the lawyers amend this to the SCOTUS filings as evidence of animus and intent to discriminate.

  25. "Good. That'll make it so much easier when the Gaystapo starts rounding up the Christians and hauling them to concentration camps or when we start to beat them and persecute them in the streets or whatever conspiracy-martyr fantasy they come up with next week."

    Let's not take this option off the table.
