I haven’t yet heard anyone ask this question.

So let me put it out there on the table for discussion.

Will a U.S. Supreme Court decision declaring “same-sex marriage” a “right” warrant secession by some state willing and eager to reclaim America’s Judeo-Christian heritage and foundation?

You know it’s inevitable, right?

The fix is in. Two members of the Supreme Court have personally officiated at same-sex “marriages.” I count three solid votes against it. The chances of reaching five are somewhere between slim and none.

I’ve heard some chatter about civil disobedience. That’s all well and good. But I don’t see much in the way of serious organization taking place.

What I do see is a lot of grass-roots concern. I know there are millions of Christians, Jews and others who would pull up stakes and move to another country that honored the institution of marriage as it was designed by God – a union between one man and one woman.

As Jesus said it: “For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh.”

Is there one state in 50 that would not only defy the coming abomination, but secede in response? The rewards could be great. I would certainly consider relocating. How about you?

The founders of this country found a place of refuge in America and shaped it into the greatest self-governing nation in the history of world. Just think what one state could do if it simply stuck to the principles that made this country great? Americans wouldn’t have to cross an ocean to rediscover what brought most of our ancestors here. We could simply drive.

Are any states so inclined?

I haven’t heard this question raised by anyone else. So I’m raising it now. We don’t have much time before the nine high priests in black robes decide to follow Baal instead of the One True God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

We need a Promised Land. We need an Exodus strategy.

If not a state, are there any nations in the world interested in a pilgrimage by millions of Americans?

It’s time to start asking the question.

Maybe you ask: “Farah, why is this such a big deal for you? Will it really make a difference in the way you live?”

It’s not me I’m concerned about. I’m old. I’m married. Most of my kids are raised. It’s my grandchildren I’m thinking about. It’s the next generation – and the one after that. I know what comes next. We’re already seeing it.

With “same-sex marriage” the handwriting is on the wall. With it comes persecution of people of faith.

WND has been chronicling those cases because they tell a story. They send a signal. This isn’t just about redefining marriage. It’s about redefining liberty. It’s about redefining right and wrong. It’s about redefining right and powers. It’s about redefining government’s role and God’s role.

There’s almost nothing bigger than this that I can think of – though the Supreme Court’s ruling that abortion on demand was a “right” was certainly a contender. That one was something of a surprise. It caught the population off guard. They weren’t expecting it or thinking about it much beforehand. It took years for it to sink in – and we’ve paid a horrific price as a people for it for 42 years.

So here’s the question: Do you want to live in a nation that defines marriage as a union of any two people of any gender? Do you think that will be the end of the story? If it’s discrimination to maintain marriage as an institution limited to one man and one woman, why isn’t it discrimination to maintain the institution to only two people? Isn’t there even a bigger demand for polygamy than same-sex marriage? On what basis can the case be made for one and not the other? You know this is not the endgame.

And here’s the second question: Are there any governors or legislatures out there among the 50 states willing to secede to offer a refuge for the God-fearing?
