Moore Invokes the Nazis About Marriage Equality. Again.

When Roy Moore and Randall Terry get together, you know there’s going to be all kinds of theocratic idiocy spewed. Moore told Terry in an interview that Christians must defy the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling and that failure to do so is just like using the Nuremberg defense.

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore sat down with anti-choice activist Randall Terry yesterday to make his case that states should defy the Supreme Court’s decision striking down same-sex marriage bans, with the two pointing to the Nuremberg trials following World War II to justify such defiance.

Both gay marriage and the war crimes committed by the Nazis violate “higher law,” Moore said. He also invoked the Vietnam War to claim that people who recognize the decision on marriage equality are no different from people who commit war crimes and say they are just “following orders.”

Yeah, because letting gay people get married is just like slaughtering millions of people. Just. Like. It.

    Both gay marriage and the war crimes committed by the Nazis violate “higher law,” Moore said. He also invoked the Vietnam War to claim that people who recognize the decision on marriage equality are no different from people who commit war crimes and say they are just “following orders.”

    The distinction between observing “higher law” and “just following orders” is not nearly as clear to me as it apparently is to Moore.

    Wow, blockquote fail. Trying again:

    Don’t you people even remember the Nuremburg trials? Nazi after Nazi in the stand, saying that them issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples was okay simply because it was? Talk about a War Crime!

    Notice the Robert E Lee bust next to him. Not Lincoln, Lee. Tells a lot!

    On one hand, the people of Alabama deserve a court system that gives out marriage licenses fairly and according to law. On the other hand, the”watch the trainwreck” side of me really wants him to defy this to the bitter end.

    If only people would just follow Jesus’ orders, its the natural thing to do.

    That’s easy, discountdeity. Those just “following orders” are ultimately held accountable for their own actions, while “higher law” sits on the top shelf beyond reach of all that meddlesome accountability.

    Is oppression of Jewish people against Christian “higher law”?

    I wasn’t aware there was a clear consensus on that.
