A group of prominent Christian pastors have vowed to engage in acts of civil disobedience if the U.S. Supreme Court rules same-sex marriage to be a constitutional right.

According to a report from WOAI, prominent Baptist pastor Dr. Rick Scarborough, who is the president of the activist group Vision America, indicated that he would follow God if it ever came to deciding whether to follow God’s law or law passed by politicians. He and other Christian evangelicals plan to deny recognition of any Supreme Court ruling that favors same-sex marriage.

“However the law is changed, I will do what I have always done,” Scarborough said. “I will continue to preach that homosexuality is a sinful lifestyle.” Scarborough claimed that about 40,000 pastors and church leaders have signed a pledge posted on the Defend Marriage website to stand up for traditional marriage, which the church defines as between one man and one woman. He declared that many of the petition’s signers are willing to go to prison if it becomes necessary.

“Never before has a civilization in the history of man approved of marriage between two men and two women,” Scarborough said, adding that while ancient Greek and Roman cultures allowed homosexual activities, none of them officially sanctioned same-sex marriage.
