Christian leaders have vowed they will not remain silent – as they did following the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision – on the topic of gay marriage, promising to take nonviolent direct action if the High Court votes to redefine marriage, states crossmap.com.

The Supreme Court is deciding two separate issues: Whether the 14th Amendment guarantees same-sex marriage as a constitutional right, and whether states must honor the same-sex marriage contracted in states that have voted to or allowed the redefinition of marriage.

“We believe that the majority of the Court will rule in favor of elevating what we have always taught to be a sinful lifestyle to the stature of a civil right – forcing us to choose between their ruling and our religious convictions that are based on Scripture,” said Rick Scarborough, a former Southern Baptist minister who now heads Vision America Action.
