Long-time conservative activist, nationally syndicated columnist, and best-selling author Phyllis Schlafly said that gay marriage advocates are targeting Christian businesses, such as bakeries and wedding planners, and not targeting similar Muslim businesses because the ultimate goal of homosexual marriage is to “wipe out the Christian religion.”

On the May 11 talk-radio program, Talkback with Chuck Wilder, the host asked Phyllis Schlafly, “Have you noticed that only Christian small-business people have been harassed and sued for refusing to participate in same-sex marriages, even though our fast-growing immigrant populations — you know of Muslims, Hindus and other faiths — are also opposed to that concept?”

He continued, “The use of same-sex marriage to attack Christian businesses but not businesses run by members of other religions demonstrates what is really driving the demand for the new constitutional right to same-sex marriage. And Phyllis, give them the bottom line. What is that bottom line?”

Schlafly, president of the pro-family group Eagle Forum, said, “Well, that is right. They want to wipe out the Christian religion.”

“And most of the other religions do not recognize same-sex marriage,” said Schlafly.  “I assume there are some Muslim bakers and photographers and other people who have been harassed, but they’re not being attacked and they’re not being criticized.”

In one recent case, the husband-and-wife owners of a bakery in Oregon were fined $135,000 because they said their Christian beliefs prevented them from catering a homosexual wedding.

Phyllis Schlafly has been a prominent figure in the conservative movement in America since the 1960s. She holds a J.D. from Washington University Law School and a Master’s in Political Science from Harvard University. She is the author or editor of 20 books, including the best seller A Choice Not an Echo.
