If gay marriage is about civil rights, Supremes will force pastors: Choose to obey unjust law or obey God

With the U.S. Supreme Court expected to render a decision soon on gay marriage, Rev. Rafael Cruz, the father of Republican presidential nominee U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, said government may soon force pastors to choose between obeying an unjust law and obeying God.

And potentially face prison.

“We need to realize that the attack on marriage is more than just an attack on marriage, it actually goes to the heart of religious freedom,” Cruz said in an interview with Phyllis Schlafly on her radio program “Eagle Forum Live,” according to CNS News.

“Because, you see, what is going to come next — and this is part of the danger of what may happen out of the Supreme Court in June — is that if marriage of anybody-with-anybody becomes a civil rights issue, then they are going to come to churches and force pastors to violate their religious convictions,” the pastor said.

“And so it is going to come to America to where a pastor is going to be faced with a decision: Do you obey a law that is not only unjust but violates your core principles, or do you obey God and face prison?”

Same-sex marriage remains illegal in 13 states, CNS News reported.

“This is the dilemma that America’s pastors are going to be facing, if this issue is labeled a civil rights issue,” Cruz added.  “It goes way beyond marriage to actually violate the religious freedom of people of faith.”
