This moment in careless punditry: LGBT evolution = anti-LGBT revolution

by Jeremy Hooper

Not content with simply penning an openly defiant letter that encourages his movement to completely ignore yesterday's Supreme Court rulings, the Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver is now beating the drum for an all-out American Revolution:

Is that what Matt teaches his students there at Liberty Law School? If your side fails to make an able case and loses in the highest court, you take to the streets in revolt?

But the thing is, it's not just the Supreme Court. When a couple of state legislatures granted marriage equality back in April of 2009, Matt issued the same call for "another American Revolution." Oh, and he's also suggested the whole thing could "cause another civil war":

"[The marriage fight] 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." [RWW]

That is at least three calls for war in three years, all related to advancement of marriage in various ways. I don't know about you, but I'm starting to believe he means it.
