Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa recently warned viewers of conservative host Glenn Beck's online program that the U.S. would suffer "endless trauma" if the U.S. Supreme Court rules to legalize same-sex marriage (video below).
The high court recently heard arguments for a challenge brought against four states that banned gay marriage.
"If this court decides that they're going to change the definition of marriage, that then throws this country into an endless trauma as well," King stated, noted RightWingWatch.org.
When Beck questioned how that would happen, King recalled the landmark abortion case, Roe v. Wade, and added, "The public will not accept a huge decision of a Supreme Court that's not a decision of the people."
King also recalled the infamous U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized slavery in 1857. He lamented all the laws and amendments that had to be passed to rid the country of slavery.
King predicted a "long battle" if gay marriage becomes legal nationwide.
Some of that "long battle" recently turned into vandalism. A church sign in Mill Valley, California, was vandalized on May 3 because of its pro-gay marriage message.
The Marin Independent Journal notes that the sign outside the Mt. Tamalpais United Methodist Church read, "Jesus had two dads and he turned out just fine."
The vandal used white paint to cover up the words "two dads" and "Church."
Kim Smith, who pastors the church, says the community has been supportive and a church family helped clean the sign.
