Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Larry Klayman, is very disappointed that America is starting to treat gay people like human beings with equal rights. Borrowing from Reagan and John Winthrop before him, he says we’re no longer that “shining city on a hill” for the rest of the world to emulate.
Barber: We were deeply involved and had a hand in helping to reverse Croatia’s harmful sex education policies and supported Croatia’s constitutional amendment affirming marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and Lord willing, this will set a trend in nations around the world.
Staver: Yeah, it will. And it looks like some of the world, a lot of the world, is going the opposite way that America is. America used to be the shining city on the hill, the example for other nations to follow. Now it’s the example of what not to follow. And other nations around the world are affirming marriage as the union of one man and one woman, while America is rejecting it. It’s as ridiculous as rejecting the laws of gravity. But some judges think they have the audacity and the arrogance to do just that.
Quite the opposite is true, of course. We are finally getting around to correcting the enormous injustice that has been done to gay people, which is exactly why Staver is so upset about it. He’s on the side of injustice, just like his mythical god has always been.
