A public high school in Grosse Pointe, Michigan this week canceled a school assembly to be held later this month featuring former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum. Naturally, that has the wingnuts freaking out about how horribly persecuted they are. Like Janet Mefferd on Facebook:
I can see the potential future unfolding, moving us toward a day when every Christian who supports real marriage might be made to wear a yellow patch on the sleeve, a “badge of shame” to identify us as “anti-gay haters.” Kind of like the Jews in Nazi Germany.
You mean like the gay people you hate so much, who had to wear pink triangles on their bodies? You mean like we make racists wear badges of shame to identify them? Oh wait, we don’t? How about that. Maybe your persecution complex is complete bullshit.
