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.

Anti-Gay Bishop Harry Jackson Wants to Know if Obama Wants to 'Wipe Biblical Marriage from the Earth': VIDEO


Anti-gay activist and NOM ally Bishop Harry Jackson is leading a coalition of 176 religious people opposed to Obama's endorsement of marriage equality:

“We want to know whether he is going to use the bully pulpit of the presidential office to absolutely erase the image of biblical marriage from the face of the earth...“Voters need to know whether they have a friend or an assent, an enemy to an institution that God has ordained. Some of us have taken his statements as a declaration of political war against the venerable institution of marriage.”

Bishop Harry Jackson Leads Freakish 'Family Research Council' Gathering Against Gay Marriage: VIDEO


Anti-gay crusader Bishop Harry Jackson spoke at a Family Research Council-hosted event with wingnut Cindy Jacobs over the weekend to raise money to fight Maryland's marriage equality efforts, Right Wing Watch reports:

JacksonAs a favorite of both the traditional Religious Right groups and the “prophets” and “apostles” of the New Apostolic Reformation—Jackson has openly embraced NAR’s Seven Mountains Dominionism mantra—it was only fitting that Jackson made a surprise appearance at last night’s event, “A Gathering of Eagles,” hosted by the FRC and NAR prophetess Cindy Jacobs’ Generals International...

...He urged people at the church to pray against “the power of the Queen of Heaven, the ruling principality over this region that has created perversion, collusion and division.” Jackson called the legalization of same-sex marriage “an assault” and said “The Enemy wants it to be a legacy, or a seed that is planted in this generation that corrupts, perverts and pollutes” society. He then led the congregation in praying in tongues, and said “we agree together that the Queen of Heaven has no authority over Maryland” and that they will bring down the Queen of Heaven who led to the “perversion of doctrine, perversion of morals and perversion of ethics in D.C.”

Bishop Harry Jackson: The Black Church 'Raised Up the Banner of Jesus' to Kill Gay Marriage in Maryland


Anti-gay crusader Bishop Harry Jackson spoke with the Christian Broadcast Network following the shelving of the marriage equality bill in Maryland and claimed the win for the Black Church:

"We exerted spiritual impact in that natural secular arena. It took the Church coming out, the Black Church, and telling its representatives, don't listen to party leadership. Understand that you're going to have to come back to your own community. They see you sort of as lemmings who are willing to march off to your death. When really and truly there will be a price to pay. That message came across. The Church was strong. And the Black church did raise up the banner of Jesus and win the day for the Church in Maryland."

CPAC Still Dedicated To 'Traditional Marriage'

Chrisbarron Pundits on the left and right alike claim inclusion of gay group GOProud at this year's Conservative Action Political Conference represents a defining moment for the right wing gathering.

Those who support GOProud's inclusion suggest the group can help bring LGBT into the conservative fold, while opponents, including heavy-weights like Focus on the Family's Family Research Council's Tony Perkins and Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly, describe GOProud's attendance as being "incompatibile" with conservatism's true mission.

But looking over the schedule of events for CPAC, which begins today with a speech by Rep. Michele Bachmann, it's clear that divisive anti-gay politics are still at the top of the conference's agenda: today, at 2:30PM, homophobic Bishop Harry Jackson and Tom Minnery, the head of Focus on the Family's political advocacy group, will participate in a seminar called "Traditional Marriage and Society."

Considering Jackson tried, and failed, to fight D.C.'s marriage equality law all the way to the Supreme Court, one can be pretty sure he won't be espousing the virtues of LGBT families and love.
