Tea Party Caucus Chair: Left Wants Churches, Non-Profits, Schools To Accept Polygamy

"We're talking about polygamy."

Rep. Tim Huelskamp, a Republican from Kansas and the chairman of the HouseTea Party Caucus, says "the left" will push churches, schools, and non-profits to accept polygamy following the Supreme Court's decision to strike down bans on same-sex marriage.

"It's the same old compromise with the left," Huelskamp said on "The Steve Malzberg Show" Monday, responding to comments from Ohio Gov. John Kasich this weekend saying, "the court has ruled, and it's time to move on."

"They're not about compromise they're about winning," Huelskamp added. "Imposing their will, that's why they go to courts, every time they can cause they know that they can win that there and nowhere else.

"We've got to stand up for marriage, we've got to stand up for First Amendment right of those who disagree," added Huelskamp. "There is no doubt we're already seeing it come out."

"They want to go after churches and educational institutions, non-profits, anybody that doesn't agree will be made to care and not only accepting same-sex unions but now we're talking plural unions, John Roberts mentioned that. We're talking about polygamy, he mentioned that as well., those kind of things that were unthought of is now ordinary. You must accept that from Washington D.C. and backing down as Kasich is suggesting is exactly how the left wins battle after battle."
