Barber: It’s a Secular Tyranny!

Matt Barber offers up his usual hysterical and hyperbolic rhetoric on the Liberty Counsel radio show, declaring that America is now under the “tyranny of a secularist minority that wants to engage in religious cleansing.” Yes, yes, yes, and pastors will be frogmarched out of pulpits by Obama’s jackbooted thugs any minute now.

This all reminds me of the cartoon of an atheist tied to a stake with a bunch of Christians around him trying to light the logs under him, with the leader saying, “Stop wiggling around, you’re violating our religious freedom!”

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    Aside from the ludicrous frogmarching bullshit, his idiot religion is covered by the same constitutional protections he is trying so desperately to violate.

    That cartoon sounds brilliant – any idea where one might find it?

    Barber is part of what used to be called Falwell’s Moral Majority. A double lie, they are neither Moral, nor a Majority.

    Barber’s death cult variety of True Xians have never been more than 20-30% of the population and aren’t well liked by mainstream Protestants or most Catholics. The vast majority of people who voted for Obama twice were….xians.

    Naw.

    It’s more like US xianity is dying of terminal fundie ugliness and the rest of us are cheering wildly and asking them if they need any help. Don’t worry Matt, the funeral of your death cults will be well attended and the party afterwards will last for days.

    You can tell they are losing members, money, and power and they have finally realized it. And their reaction is predictable. To get more and more extreme. I can’t see that more of what is wrong with them is going to help but who knows, we have lots of time to find out.

    And you know what other political power was losing members, money, and power?

    That’s right, the Nazis!. No, just kidding, its the GOP.

    Isn’t this the same guy (or at least part of the same organization) that has proposed deporting all gays?
