Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver: Marriage equality will cause new civil war

by Jeremy Hooper

My husband just came home from work and we're about to cook dinner. We thought we were having steamed veggie dumplings and garlic sesame udon. But according to Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver, our benign act of domestic bliss within the confines of a legally-recognized union is actually serving up a heaping plate of street war:

"This is the thing that revolutions literally are made of. This would be more devastating to our freedom, to our religious freedom, to the rights of pastors and their duty to be able to speak and to Christians around the country, then anything that the revolutionaries during the American Revolution even dreamed of facing. This would be the thing that revolutions are made of. This could split the country right in two. This could cause another civil war. I’m not talking about just people protesting in the streets, this could be that level because what would ultimately happen is a direct collision would immediately happen with pastors, with churches, with Christians, with Christian ministries, with other businesses, it would be an avalanche that would go across the country."

Is this a prediction or a threat, Mat? Because you have a lot of captive students there on the Liberty University campus. Should we be concerned about what the school's ROTC program might be teaching?

I had the hubby go ahead and lock our door, just to be safe.

*RELATED: Just two weeks ago, I wrote about Mat and how he is much more incendiary than he lets on when appearing on cable news. I thank him for bearing out my claim!
