This happened, of course, at the Southern Baptist ERLC leadership summit, and it represents an increasingly popular technique on the part of neo-Calvinistic evangelicals to subtly imply that gay relationships or gay marriage are like slavery, the KKK, racism, lynching, etc. Of course, pretending that discrimination and intolerance are somehow a justice and freedom cause does no one any good.
