Here’s yet another example of a phenomenon I’ve noticed for quite some time now. For wingnuts, everything reminds them of Nazi Germany except actual Nazis. Eric Metaxas and the even more unhinged Kevin Swanson agreed on Generations Radio that the existence of a few gay-friendly churches is just like what led to the rise of Hitler.
“I’m talking about the theological liberals in the mainstream church that is just getting off in a whole other direction where they are just failing to teach biblical orthodoxy, failing to teach the Bible as the word of God and yet they still think of themselves as the church,” he said. “We see that obviously happening in issues of sexuality, but how can you say that most mainline denominations in America today are profoundly Christian when they have given up the ghost on all of these fundamentals of the faith? You had the exact same thing happening in Germany. It’s just setting things up so that when evil comes, where do people turn?”Swanson agreed that the “abortion holocaust” and the “significant rise of homosexuality, something that Nazi Germany was seeing in the 1920s and 1930s,” show that America is on its way to Nazism.
This is what happens when you get your history from David Barton and Scott Lively.
