Christians react to Supreme Court ruling

The U.S. Supreme Court ruling last week that legalized same-sex "marriage" is predictably a topic of conversation throughout the country.

At a Christian music concert in Beaumont, Texas, people didn't mince words regarding the decision.

"My God defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman and I believe what He said before I believe what the Supreme Court said," one person told OneNewsNow.  

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that there is a constitutional right to homosexual "marriage," and also ruled that such marriages performed in states where it's legal must be recognized in states that have affirmed normal marriage. 

The reaction from the Far Left was predictable - comedian Stephen Colbert mocked the dissenting justices as Frankenstein's monster and mocked their opinions, even John Roberts' warning that the five justices ignored the U.S. Constitution. 

On its website, the far-left Human Rights Campaign was asking for donations for "full LGTB equality" even after the landmark court victory. 

A second concert goer told OneNewsNow that the high court "slapped God in the face with that (decision)."

"Jesus is the only way of any hope.  I can't wait for Jesus to come," a woman said of the decision.
