Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Larry Klayman (which explains why Jerry Falwell would make him dean of his law school), goes full Godwin yet again, saying that modern America is even worse than Nazi Germany because Christians are being forced to take part in “genocide” and gay marriage.
Bizarrely, Staver claimed that, under Obamacare, Christians are not only being required to fund abortion but are literally being “forced to participate in genocide,” which is something that not even the Nazi government forced the German citizens to do.
“Even in Nazi Germany,” Staver said, “the government participated in genocide but the individuals, the citizens weren’t forced to participate in it … The people were not forced to push people into the gas chamber or pull the trigger, but now you’re being forced to pull the trigger, you’re being forced to participate in a genocide, that’s different than anything before.”Barber agreed, saying “this is the most oppressive time in terms of religious liberty in the United States,” not only because of abortion but also because Christians are also supposedly being persecuted for opposing gay marriage.
“Everyone is going to have to make a decision to either obey the laws of God or to obey the laws of man,” Barber said, “and this is unprecedented.”
Yes, yes, yes. Christians are so terribly persecuted by not being able to prevent gay people from getting married. Your tears are incredibly delicious, by the way.
