Pastors respond to Obama's support of same-sex marriage

HOUSTON – A coalition of Texas pastors expressed their disappointment after President Obama gave his support for same sex marriage.

"From ordering the Justice Department to abandon its constitutional duty to defend the Defense of Marriage Act to repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and sexualizing our military, President Obama has not been shy about his extreme positions in support of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered, Intersexed, etc. agenda," said Dave Welch with the Texas Pastor Council.

Welch also said pastors are rising to defend traditional marriage because of their belief that as goes marriage, so goes the family and the country.

"When marriage is everything, marriage is nothing.  Obama and his radical allies of the sexual diversity agenda cannot redefine marriage, they can only undefine it and destroy it," said Welch.
