Mat Staver Says Obeying Pro Marriage Equality Rulings Is Equivalent to Turning Jews Over to Nazis
Right Wing Watch found Another Gem of stupidity, bigotry and godwins. Speaking at a local Tea party event, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver, basically compared himself to Martin Luther King, and and claimed that obeying a supreme court ruling legalizing same sex marriage, is as morally horrendous as turning over Jews to the Nazis during world War 2.
Yeah Mat your cause is equivalent to the fight against segregation! And oh, allowing gay people to get married is the same as the Holocaust! Gag me with a spoon!
Also there’s something you should know about what MLK’s wife thought about gay rights. Tell me Mat, was Coretta Scott King equivalent to a Nazi for her support of gay rights? Would her husband have considered her equivalent to mass murderers?
This isn’t really that surprising unfortunately, given how some far right nut jobs have already compared pro marriage equality rulings to Jim Crow laws and slavery. I guess it was only a matter of time before they hit us with an insensitive holocaust comparison, after some unjustified analogies to Dred Scott. Man these guys must really hate gay people.
