When Mat Staver and Matt Barber get together on the radio, there is bound to be some serious stupid going on. They’re like the tag team champions of absurdity, which is proven yet again by their terrible analogies in trying to explain how unjust it is to make a business not discriminate:
Barber: So, to make that comparison would be like saying the adulteress goes to Jesus and says ‘you’re a carpenter, I want you to make a frame for my adultery bed, for me and then men I’m committing adultery with to commit our sinful acts.’ And it would be like some tribunal coming to Jesus and saying you’re a carpenter, you don’t have a right to refuse to make this bed for the adulteress because you make beds for people who are actually married …Staver: It’s like a carpenter who [is told] you can build this house for this person or you can build this gallows for Hitler. And you can use your talents, we’re going to force you to use the talents to build the gallows for Hitler and we’re going to hang Jews on the gallows.
Uh yeah. It’s, uh, just like those things.
