Staver: SCOTUS ruling 'just their opinion'

In what Liberty Counsel deems "just the tip of the iceberg," an anti-Christian group is vowing to aggressively challenge the religious freedom of Americans.

The action by Americans United for the Separation of Church and State follows the Supreme Court's legalization of homosexual "marriage," giving it the same legal recognition as if it were equivalent to natural marriage. Constitutional attorney Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, encourages resistance.

"We should not pretend that it is the rule of law, we should not act like it's the rule of law," he counsels. "We do need to protect religious freedom – but in the process we cannot accept this ruling as a legitimate ruling as the rule of law. It is not; it is not based on the Constitution – and if it's not based on the Constitution, it's just their opinion."

Regardless, it has served as motivation for organizations such as Americans United, which has issued a press release vowing to fight to abolish religious freedom laws.

"This is just the tip of the iceberg where this anti-Christian organization wants to come after your religious freedom. They want to target it," warns Staver.

"They said, in fact, that they are putting the so-called 'religious right' on notice," he continues. "They're going to be watching, they're going to be coming after you, they're going to try to trample your religious freedom."

The Christian attorney urges continued and vigorous defense of religious freedom and passage of laws to defend that freedom. At the same time, he says people also need to "resist this unlawful, lawless decision" from the Supreme Court.
