Glenn has a pretty clear stance on gay marriage: if it neither picks his pocket or breaks his leg, it doesn’t matter to him if gay marriage is legal or not. He simply doesn’t believe people of faith and churches should be forced to support it if they don’t believe it. In fact, government shouldn’t even be a part of it. But with gay marriage now before the Supreme Court, he predicts that a ruling in favor of gay marriage could drastically change churches across the country.
“Hear’s my prediction: If gay marriage goes through the Supreme Court and gay marriage becomes fine and they can put teeth in it – so now they can go after the churches, like the president’s lawyer says – 50% of our churches will fall away. Meaning the congregations, within five years, 50% of the congregants will fall away from their church. Because they won’t be able to take the persecution,” Glenn said. “Because the stigma of going to church will be too much.” “When it comes to religious principles, whether that religious principle tells you you should be for gay marriage or against gay marriage, whatever it is, you have to draw the line. Persecution is coming. If this goes through, persecution is coming,” he said. Glenn and Stu pointed listeners to the story of the Oregon bakery that now has to pay hefty fines of $135,000 to a lesbian couple after the owners refused bake them a wedding cake. FULL STORY
