Ladies and gentlemen, I give you your hysterical overreaction of the day. In an article on Pat Robertson’s CBN website, unhinged anti-gay bigot Brian Camenker of MassResistance says that Christians today are being treated just like the Jews were in Nazi Germany because they’re being “demonized.”
Some say American Christians are paranoid, that they’re feeling targeted and persecuted. But is it possible America is facing a growing anti-Christian agenda?
Some on the frontline of the culture wars have responded with a resounding “yes.” They feel it up close and personal – right in their faces.
“I’m particularly sensitive to that because I’m Jewish,” Brian Camenker, with Mass Resistance, told CBN News.
“I saw what happened to Jews in the 1930s and 40s and much of that same thing is happening to Christians now,” he said. “There’s an organized movement to demonize Christians.”
Maggie Gallagher, with the American Principles Project, agreed.“What we’re seeing very clearly is an effort to target them [Christians] legally when possible and then to humiliate or deprive them of social respect,” she said.
Hmmm. Demonizing and trying to humiliate them and deprive them of social respect…Would that be by, oh I don’t know, I’m just spitballing here, but maybe…claiming that they’re demon-possessed perverts who want to rape your children, that their push for equal rights is a Satanic attempt to destroy not just America but all of Western, nay human civilization? Because that’s what people like Camenker and Gallagher have been claiming about gay people forever. Would that qualify as an “organized movement to demonize gay people”?
The Jews weren’t the only victims of Nazi Germany, you know. Tens of thousands of gay people, at least, were also thrown into concentration camps. And it was justified on the very same basis that people like Camenker use to demonize gays today. He clearly has the comparison on the wrong side. In Nazi Germany, he would have been one of the ones rounding up the victims of the Holocaust.
