Jim Garlow, the radical anti-LGBT religious extremist Senior Pastor of Skyline Wesleyan Church in San Diego, California was a vocal opponent against gay marriage in California with his strong support of Proposition 8,.
Not that Prop 8 has been verturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, Garlow and the conservative Capitol Resource Institute are now leading the charge against a California law that protects transgender children from discrimination. The law allows children to self-identify their gender, use the restroom of their choice and play on school sports teams of their choice.
During a recent webcast, Pastor Garlow told his fellow pastors to be “prophets” and fight the transgender law, even if they have to die:
“I would rather die in the battle for truth than continue living under the chaos and tyranny that is coming upon us. And so some things are worth dying for, whether it’s in our own emotions or in our own ambitions or whether it’s actual, physical death. Some things are worth standing for and it’s time for us to stand up. We’re coming into a season of intensified persecution, we all see it, we all know it, discerning people grasp it. So be it.”
Garlow who once compared children losing their parents on 9/11 to children with gay parents, also compares marriage equality to slavery and has said that “Satan” is behind extending the freedom to marry to gay and lesbian couple
