Following the U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down states’ same-sex marriage bans, some Christian and world leaders have commented on the development and most did not favour the ruling.
While the pastor of the Potter’s House in Dallas, Texas, T.D Jakes couldnt be bothered about the ruling saying Christians shouldn’t be bothered about the world being the world, most Christians are deeply concerned and they have voiced their concerns.

“I’ve just concluded since President Obama endorses the same-sex marriage, advocates homosexual people and enjoys an attractive countenance thus if it becomes necessary , I shall travel to Washington, D.C. , get down on my knee , and ask his [Obama’s] hand.”
