Christian radio host and Director of Issues Analysis for the American Family Association Bryan Fischer worn on his program on Thursday that the forthcoming Supreme Court ruling that may overturn the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) means that “we will not be slouching toward Gomorrah, we will be bull-rushing Gomorrah at warp speed.”

“Here’s hoping that the Supreme Court will have enough constitutional sense, enough moral decency and enough foresight not to make a catastrophic blunder here,” referring to an upcoming Supreme Court ruling that will decide whether 1993′s DOMA, which establishes the federal definition of marriage as between one man and one woman, is unconstitutional. “So my hope is that the Supreme Court will give full faith and credit to the 30 states whose constitutions forbid same sex marriage.”

“If it doesn’t, it will be too late for America,” he continued. “If we don’t do this, we will be opening the door, then, not only to same sex marriage, they’ll be opening the door to transsexual marriages. They will be opening the door to polygamy. They will be opening the door to incest. They will be opening the door to pedophilia. They will be opening the door to best-bestiality [sic]. And it will be, at that point, too late for America. We will have become Rome; we will not be slouching toward Gomorrah, we will be bull-rushing Gomorrah at warp speed.”

Many expect the Supreme Court to rule on this case sometime in June.
