Gay marriage: Christian pastors vow civil disobedience

A group of Christian pastors has vowed to launch a civil disobedience campaign if the US Supreme Court decides to allow same-sex marriage in a ruling expected this month.

Dr. Rick Scarborough, a Baptist pastor and president of the activist group Vision America, said if it ever came to deciding whether to follow God's law or law passed by politicians, he would follow God's law. He said he and other Christian evangelicals will refuse to recognise any Supreme Court ruling that favours same-sex marriage.

"I will continue to preach that homosexuality is a sinful lifestyle," Scarborough told News Radio 1200 WOAI.

He said about 40,000 pastors and church leaders have signed a petition at to "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."
