“Even though we won the vote in Congress, we ultimately lost in the court of public opinion. We’re painted as bigots in the media, we’re driven into the corner. And the Supreme Court, which will ultimately have the final say and has already tipped its hand in Romer, will rule against us.
“But now, religious freedom may have to settle for equality with freedom of sexual expression, because it is overriding religious freedom at every turn. This is the battle we’re having with a number of great cultural pressures. We can’t stand for the Defense of Marriage Act, even if, with us, it’s a matter of religious conscience, because to do so is to ‘do harm to gays.’
“The gay rights juggernaut is grinding down on us. It’s the most ominous threat on the horizon in America, and with all the threats we have, that’s a pretty big statement—because it threatens not only to institute something which is an abomination to God, but also to crush our religious liberties in the process.
“Homosexual ‘marriage’ is redefining who we are. It’s redefining what the creation is about and what it’s for. It simply isn’t about any two (or more) people of the same sex coming together, enjoying each other and sharing joint benefits.
We call marriage a sacrament because it is a sign of God and His creation. It’s the definition of the word creation. We’ve got to restore this and teach it in the churches. We’ve got to take this simple little nugget of truth and build on it so that eventually we permeate public consciousness with the realization that this isn’t just about equality. This isn’t just about rights for gays versus straights. This isn’t about civil rights. This is about the plan of creation. And if we destroy that, we’re going to bring the wrath of God upon us. We’re actually going to destroy the very nature of the world we live in, the very purpose of the world and the very purpose of life.
