Moore Invokes the Nazis About Marriage Equality. Again.

Moore Invokes the Nazis About Marriage Equality. Again. July 9, 2015

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.
