At the Fox News presidential debate tonight, Sen. Rand Paul responded to the Supreme Court's recent decision on gay marriage.

A Facebook user asked Paul what he would do to ensure that Christians are not prosecuted for speaking out against gay marriage and if Christians will be forced to conduct business that interferes with their religious beliefs.

"I don't want my marriage or my guns registered in Washington," Paul stated.

He added that if someone has a deeply held religious belief, they should be able to practice that without interference from the government.

He noted a recent incident where the mayor of Houston tried to obtain the sermons of local ministers.

"When the government tries to invade the church to enforce its own opinion on marriage, that's when it's time to resist."

Watch Paul's full response above.
