Religious Right Goes Batsh!t Over SCOTUS Same-Sex Marriage Ruling (VIDEO / TWEETS)

The U.S. Supreme Court did something quite unexpected Monday. They declined to hear lower court decisions banning same-sex marriage. The non-ruling ends delays on same-sex marriage in 11 states. Previous to this ruling, same-sex marriage was legal in only 19 states. Now LGBT couples can marry in 30 of our united states!

… and the radical right is pissed!

Republican Governors in three affected states–Nikki Haley of South Carolina, Sam Brownback of Kansas, and Matt Mead of Wyoming–have essentially said they’re going to ignore the SCOTUS ruling.

Several anti-gay hate groups have expressed their repulsively ill-informed opinions.

The National Organization for Marriage. A group whose slogan reads, “Defending marriage as one man and one woman!” released a horribly intolerant statement along with the following tweet.

The Faith & Freedom Coalition, endorsed by Sarah Palin (enough said), had the following reaction.

John Stemberger, President of Florida Family Policy Council, offered this unpleasant suggestion.

Family Research Council ominously predicted that people will “…lose their livelihoods because they refuse to not just tolerate but celebrate same-sex marriage.”

Focus on the Family fears that the SCOTUS ruling will result in a “further expansion of threats to religious freedom.:

Bryan Fischer of the hate group inappropriately named “American Family Association” let loose with the most heinously intolerant rant. Fischer said of the SCOTUS ruling, “This is the defacto Roe v. Wade of sodomy based marriage,” and concluded “It’s unconscionable, unconstitutional, and completely absolutely un-American.” He coughed up the following grotesque tweet as well.

If you can stomach it, watch Fischer’s hate speech on video compliments of Right Wing Watch:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) weighed in as well. He whined about introducing a constitutional amendment that will never happen.

Not to be outdone, The Mormon Church, made infamous for their support of California’s Proposition H8 in the documentary 8: The Mormon Proposition, issued a statement. In part the statement reads,

The succession of federal court decisions in recent months, culminating in today’s announcement by the Supreme Court, will have no effect on the doctrinal position or practices of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which is that only marriage between a man and a woman is acceptable to God.

Sadly, we will have to drag these troglodytes, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century. On the bright side, considering 67 percent of Millennials and 53 percent of Generation X favor same-sex marriage, it’s only a matter of time before same-sex marriage becomes the law of the land.
