There seems to be no limit whatsoever to how hysterically overblown the reaction from the Christian right can be to the loss of their ability to discriminate against gay people. Paul Blair of Reclaiming America for Christ told Tony Perkins that the fight against equality is just like the fights against slavery and Hitler.
Blair: We had talked in years past when they made the change as far as the United States Military and just exactly where this is going to lead. Well, now this is on our front doorstep and it’s not just going to stop here. Ultimately, this will be forced upon pastors and our hiring practices and any Christian business within the state of Oklahoma. It’s up to us now to decide that along with our forefather pastors, “resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.” It’s time for us to stand with men like Charles Finney in opposition to slavery and with Dietrich Bonhoeffer to opposition to totalitarian government in Germany, we’re facing much the same thing.
Oh yes, much the same thing. Not allowing Christians to discriminate against gay people is just like enslaving an entire race of people. And it’s just like committing mass genocide in the name of racial purity. They’re practically identical in every imaginable way.
