From Right Wing Watch:
Last month, the Family Research Council hosted its annual “Watchmen on the Wall” conference in Washington DC and, in conjunction, organized a press conference where event speakers would gather to announce their support for the Defense of Marriage Act.
Among the speakers at the press conference was Jim Garlow, who took President Obama to task for saying that his Christian faith played a role in his support for marriage equality. Declaring that anyone can call themselves a Christian but still be ill-informed, biblically illiterate, and even an apostate, Garlow offered Obama a lesson in “Basic 101 of Christianity” to set him straight that marriage has always been, and always will be, a union between on man and one woman.
Garlow then closed out his remarks by likening those opposing marriage equality today to Revolutionary War pastors who fought the British because, just like them, these Religious Right activists are are willing declare “if necessary, here we die!”
Throughout history, people have been willing to die in defense of their country and from religious persecution (which in all honesty, no one can call marriage equality religious persecution because isn’t being forced to marry another man), but there has to be a special type of individual who will put his life on the line to justify his ego.
Come on Garlow and the rest of you guys! It doesn’t even have to come to that. If you don’t agree with marriage equality, you don’t have to come to my wedding. Nor do you have to bring a gift.
Can’t you just throw a normal tantrum to get your way like everyone else?
