Renew America, a right-wing group originally launched by Alan Keyes who earlier this year published “Satan’s 10 commandments to the homosexual lobby” reacted to the recent Supreme Court marriage equality victories by asking which states should begin seceding from the union because of it.

June 26, 2013, is the beginning of the end for the United States of America. Christians, conservatives, and liberals to a small degree, who believe in the Judeo-Christian values of our forefathers will find them boxed in by the government police… From my perspective, for us to follow the laws handed down by God, we have only one option and that is to secede from the union…
The big question is, what state or states would secede from the union? My belief is if just one state would secede others would shortly follow because things will only get worse. If a new nation is formed under the Laws given down by God and the values passed down by our forefathers, this new nation will be blessed. The new nation can take the constitution as handed down by our forefathers since America is in the process of abandoning it.
Of course, the most virulently anti-gay states are also the poorest and least able to survive on their own without the massive help they get from the federal government. (*cough* Kentucky *cough*) So as delightful as it would be to get rid of these bigoted asshole states I won’t be holding my breath for this to happen anytime soon.
