Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, asked the attorney Nicole Martin of Alliance Defending Freedom on his show, Washington Watch With Tony Perkins. Martin had recently represented Jack Phillips, owner of the Masterpiece Cakeshop in Denver Colorado. Judges on the Colorado Human Rights Council recently unanimously ruled against Phillips in a claim that Phillips had violated a gay couple’s civil rights when he refused to bake them a wedding cake.
The discussion on the show about the council decision quickly escalated beyond the usual hateful bigoted remarks usually associated with anything to do with Tony Perkins or the Family research Council and jumped right into Holocaust territory so fast it would make Godwin gasp. Somehow in Perkins’ mind not only is there a gay agenda, there is also a gay final solution that involves Christians being exterminated in concentration camps.
“I’m beginning to think, are re-education camps next? When are they going to start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians,” asks Perkins.
Yeah that’s right. Tony Perkins actually said that gay people, one of the largest groups of people who actually were exterminated in concentration camps during the Holocaust, is part of a 21st century plot to do the same to Christians.
Martin described the ruling as part of a continued “witch hunt” against Christians.
Yeah that’s right. Nicole Martin actually said that there is a witch hunt going on against Christians. Christians being the ones who actually accused people of being witches, then burned them alive, thus creating the term “witch hunt.”
Hopefully for Perkins and Martin’s sake, of there is a heaven, passing a history test is not a requirement for entry. You can listen to an audio clip of Perkins and Martin right here posted online by Right Wing Watch.
