U.S. Supreme Court Gay Marriage : Christian evangelicals say they will refuse to obey the new law, and are prepared to go to prison if necessary,

With the U.S. Supreme Court expected to rule in the coming weeks that same sex marriage is legal, many Christian evangelicals say they will refuse to obey the new law, and are prepared to go to prison if necessary, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
  Dr. Rick Scarborough, a prominent Baptist pastor and president of the activist group Vision America tells News Radio 1200 WOAI it is a matter of whether to follow God's law or the politicians law, and he'll go with God.
  "However the law is changed, I will do what I have always done," he said.  "I will continue to preach that homosexuality is a sinful life style."
  Scarborough says some 40,000 pastors and church leaders have signed a petition at www.defendmarriage.org.  He says those who signed the petition will 'resist all government efforts to require them to accept gay marriage, and they will accept any fine and jail time to protect their religious freedom and the freedom of others.'
  The petition demonstrates that, despite all of the other social changes which have taken place since the growth of the organized evangelical Christian movement in the early 1980s, from the acceptability of divorce to children being born out of marriage, to 'Sarah has two mommies,' it is the legalization and acceptability of same sex marriage which is seen as a 'bright line' over which the Godly should not cross.
