"[W]e are seeing now that it's escalating to the point where, you know, bakers and photographers and people over the issue of counterfeit gay marriage... they're going after Christians, they're going after churches. People are going to be facing a real monetary persecution -- fines, the loss of a business, people are losing their jobs...

"So it's escalating, but we're not to the point, obviously, that we're seeing with our Christian brothers and sisters around the world in Iraq, in Syria, in Sudan, and elsewhere where they are literally being tortured and beheaded. So it's a soft persecution in the United States but that's the gateway drug, unfortunately, to violent persecution."

-- Hate group spokesman Matt Barber, in an interview last week on REEL Talk.
