Mike Farris Goes Full Godwin Over Gay Rights

Mike Farris, head of both Patrick Henry College and the Home School Legal Defense Association, went full Godwin on a radio show discussing the whole Indiana RFRA situation and equal rights for gay people in general. It seems “Nazi Germany would be proud” of how horribly we’re persecuting Christians by not letting them persecute others.

“We are going backwards on religious liberty, back to the Dark Ages of toleration, back to the witch trials, back to the very kinds of things that caused people to get in their ships and cross the ocean and come to the shores of Virginia and Massachusetts,” Farris said, rather ironically.

“This is not just about gay rights,” Farris continued. “This is about, can New York City pass a law that prohibits circumcision, will Orthodox Jews be prohibited from circumcising their little boys? Will pro-life doctors be forced to participate in abortions?”

If gay rights undermine religious freedom, he warned, then America will transform into Nazi Germany: “This is all about unilateral coercion, it’s political correctness with the regimentation and force that Nazi Germany would be proud of.”

Always with the Nazis, which is especially ironic when we’re talking about gay rights given that they killed tens of thousands of gay people, bare minimum.

    “…back to the very kinds of things that caused people to get in their ships and cross the ocean and come to the shores of Virginia and Massachusetts,” Farris said, rather ironically.

    Well, to be fair, the colonies in Massachusetts were founded by people thinking that the Church of England back home was too tolerant.

    …back to the Dark Ages of toleration….

    lol

    Yeah, okay, I’ll give them this one. To the bigots, we must appear to be entering a new Dark Ages of Toleration.

    Mike Farris, head of both Patrick Henry College and the Home School Legal Defense Association…

    Not to be confused with actor and activist Mike Farrell.

    Because nothing says tolerance like the Inquisition, pogroms and witch hunts.

    How about we agree that we use an actual doctor for the circumcision, instead of a old man with herpes who gives it to the kid by sacking on the wound?

    back to the witch trials, back to the very kinds of things that caused people to get in their ships and cross the ocean and come to the shores of Virginia and Massachusetts

    Where the people in Massachusetts promptly conducted … witch trials!

    Those Nazis were all about gay rights, as we all know. Like the right to wear pink badges at all times, and the right to free showers and saunas.

    Actually, while I realize this will never fly, I would outlaw infant circumcision. If a grown man wants to mutilate himself for religious reasons, well OK I guess, but I don’t think it’s a decision that should be made for boys in infancy. And certainly I think that if we are going to allow it all, it should be done by a doctor in sanitary circumstances and with at least a local anesthetic.

    There is not only the mutilation of infant boys for non-medical reasons, there is a similar barbaric torture inflicted on some young girls, generally known as FGM.
