Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel gave one of his typically irrational rants on his radio show, targeting Dan Barker, Annie Laurie Gaylor and the Freedom From Religion Foundation. He calls them “bullies” and says that the only way to respond to a bully is to — metaphorically, of course — punch him in the face.
He claims this is a metaphor, but what exactly is it a metaphor for? The only thing the FFRF does is file lawsuits over possible establishment clause violations. So how could they be metaphorically punched in the face? Liberty Counsel and other Christian right legal groups already provide free representation to the government entities that are sued (funny, isn’t it? They’re anti-government but all for it when the government is helping them impose their religious beliefs on people) by the FFRF. So how exactly does he propose to metaphorically punch them in the face?
