Michael Peroutka, the former Constitution Party presidential candidate and a Christian theocrat, went on Steve Deace’s radio show to rant about the already-withdrawn subpoenas in Houston and claim that non-discrimination laws are a plot to eliminate religion and replace it with idolatry of the government.
Deace declared that nondiscrimination laws like the one in Houston and transgender nondiscrimination laws being considered throughout the country are ultimately meant to “silence the church” and elevate government to the level of God.
Lawmakers, Deace argued, are “using sexual perversity and immorality as the means to silence the church so that there is no institution capable of challenging the supremacy of the state.”
Peroutka — who is also a GOP candidate for a county office in Maryland — agreed, saying “If you believe that you are God, as government has proved over and over again that it believes it is…you don’t want there to be another God, you don’t want anybody to have an allegiance to the one true and living God, the God of the Bible whose son is Jesus Christ, because if that exists it is the enemy of your own idolatry.”
So if you’re not allowed to discriminate, apparently you can’t believe in God and you have to worship the government. Makes perfect sense.
