Mat Staver, the attorney who is representing anti-gay Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, claims a same-sex marriage licenses is like a license to “sodomize children.”
Staver displayed his obnoxious anti-gay Christian bigotry while appearing on the “WallBuilders Live” radio program, where he said that requiring Davis to issue same-sex marriage licenses is like requiring her to provide licenses to “sodomize children.”
The following is an excerpt from Staver’s remarks, via Right Wing Watch:
A clerk provides licenses to do something. A license to operate a motor vehicle on the road, a license to build a particular facility or a license to do this or a license to do that or a license to operate a business. So that person is licensing someone to do something and in this case, they’re licensing what? They’re licensing something that is directly contrary to the core of their religious convictions, to engage in sinful activity among same-sex relations and sanction something that is contrary to the Scriptures and that is marriage of two people of the same sex.
To force someone like that to give a license for something that will legalize, that will put a stamp of approval on something that is absolute rebellion against God, sinful, then that is a direct collision of unprecedented magnitude.
The moral depravity required to equate same-sex marriage with sodomizing children in unfathomable. Staver is a monster, and the Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, which has been correctly identified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
