Christian Pastors Preparing For Massive Civil Disobedience If Supreme Court Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage

Members of the Coalition of African-American Pastors and other ministers stood side by side to say they will refuse to obey the Supreme Court decision if the justices legalize same-sex marriage.

Supreme Court Hears Arguments On California's Prop 8 And Defense Of Marriage Act

Rev. David Welch, president of the Pastor’s Council in Houston, Texas, was in Memphis to oppose same-sex marriage.

“God created marriage between a man and woman and no Supreme Court jurisdiction can define this. We stand clearly saying we will acknowledge God’s law no matter what the cost, no matter what the price. If they want to fill jails with pastors across the nation of every color, denomination and every size who will stand for the laws of God and his truths,” Welch said.

He said many pastors are prepared to call for civil disobedience as a way to protest.

“We stand today to put America on notice that we will not obey an unjust law. Same sex marriages, they try to claim to is a civil right. They hijacked the Civil Rights Movement and say it’s the same thing, but it’s not the same thing,” said Rev. Bill Owens, the president and founder of the Coalition of African-American Pastors.

“It’s not about gay people, but same-sex marriage because we have gay people and we love them and some of my best friends are gay. We love them and don’t dislike them. But when you go to same-sex marriage, you’ve crossed the line,” Owens said.

Others have said they will oppose the ministers’ position on same-sex marriage as they await the outcome of the Supreme Court’s decision.

“This is a matter of being treated fairly and equally by the state. It’s not a matter of anyone else’s business at this point,” said Will Batts, the executive director of the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center.

“We are watching this story very closely. This affects a lot of people in our community. There are those of us in our community who’ve been married for decades and some who’ve passed away who never enjoyed equal treatment under the law and that’s a shame,” Batts said

  1. Forcing churches to perform same sex weddings plus the removal of tax exempt status for churches is the next wave in the gay radical agenda. Total submission is their aim plus the crushing of any established faith that opposes them.

  2. ” Love the sinner BUT HATE the SIN.” They are all accountable. Just wait until judgment day. many tears about to come but it may be too late unless they repent!

  3. Dont you all think ISIL, Islam, and Christian eradication is a more important worry? I dont see one Pator doing a single thing about this “real” issue.

  4. Hilarious. What are you going to do about it? It’s civil marriage. The blessings of a church aren’t necessary to get married, so what manner of civil disobedience do you intend to engage in? Furthermore, there’s no shortage of denominations willing to marry same-sex couples. Churches won’t be forced to marry same-sex couples because 1) First Amendment, and 2) Plenty of churches are willing to officiate a same-sex wedding, and 3) A religious component isn’t remotely necessary to civil marriage.

    You’re not at all important or necessary in the context of civil marriage, and your approval or lack thereof regarding same-sex relationships or marriages simply doesn’t matter to the persons engaging in them. Get over it.

    • I support the pastors. Two churches have been damaged by gay activists in Oregon and North Carolina. Time for religious people to stand unified.

    • A time for celebration They just passed a law to let all the immoral,trashy gay’s to get married. This was america now it’s a fucking joke thank’s to the stupid liberals.The bullshit that’s happened to our country in the last seven years is a bad dream that just get’s worse.Why can’t they keep this sickness in the trash can where it belongs?Seven years of bullshit.This is a sad day for deceint people in america.

  5. This is such crap. What a despicable display by Christians in this hour that could be used to rally the nation for what is right and true. These pastors brought in the federal government and the 14th amendment status when they took on their 501.c.3 status. They have been praying to their “rich and increased with good” god for decades and now when it’s time to pay up they go against law.. Pathetic people that I hope either wake up and remove them from their status or they go to jail and face what they have done to their congregation for decades…
