Yesterday, fired/demoted/something-like-that American Family Association radio host Bryan Fischer referred to U.S. District Judge Callie Granade’s court order on issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Alabama a form of “slavery,” brought about by the “gay gestapo.”
Via Right Wing Watch:
“When you are ordered by an agent of the government to violate your own conscience in something that you do, that is slavery. If you are forced to violate your conscience to do work, that is slavery. If you are forced to violate your conscience that is tyranny…that is the gay gestapo at work, ‘you either do what we tell you or you’re gonna get punished.'”
Remember, when LGBT advocates refer to equality issues as “civil rights” the right wing loonies lose their minds.
BUT – they feel perfectly free to compare advances for gay Americans with “slavery” and Nazi Germany.
