GOP Rep: Pray Supreme Court Does Not ‘Impose’ Same-Sex Marriage

Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas) issued a dire prophecy today on the Supreme Court and its role deciding the future of same-sex marriage.

“The court – if it tries to impose this on the nation – will not solve it,” he told listeners at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday. “In fact, I believe it would move us into one of the most tumultuous cultural times we have ever seen.”

The GOP Congressman spoke at CPAC for a panel on religious liberty. The discussion, titled “Religious Freedom in America: Would the Pilgrims Still Be Welcome Here?” addressed tensions in U.S. public life between the secular and the spiritual.

“I think if we lose our religious liberty, we lose our country,” Neugebauer said. “This is a gradual erosion that has been going on for a number of years. If you lose the foundation, the house crumbles.”
