FRC’s Jerry Boykin: ‘God’s Army’ Must Rise Up Against ‘Evil’ Of Gay Rights (VIDEO)

For the second time this week, a member of the notoriously hateful and rabidly homophobic Family Research Council seems to be inciting violence amongst conservative Christians an effort to create some kind of  “uprising” to go up against the movement for equal rights for LGBTQ Americans. First, the organization’s president and Hater-in-Chief Tony Perkins said that a “Christian uprising” was inevitable if the Supreme Court legalizes marriage for same-sex couples in all 50 states, and now, another member, Jerry Boykin, has said that his fellow conservatives must rise up as “God’s Army.”

During a blistering speech at one of the FRC’s “Watchmen on the Wall” events in Springfield, MO, Boykin sent out a fear-filled warning to his fellow Christians, referencing SOGI, the city’s non-discrimination ordinance that forbids discrimination against people based upon sexual orientation and gender presentation and identity. He said:

“If you’re a Bible-believing Christian, if you’re a person who has a biblical worldview, if you serve the one and only God, you are going to be persecuted, plain and simple.”

So, in other words, Mr. Boykin is stoking the fires of the paranoia and persecution complexes that so many people on the right have with regards to this issue. They think that because they no longer have the right to actively and openly discriminate, that they are somehow being persecuted. Boykin went on to say:

“This SOGI nonsense is an example of exactly what they’re trying to do us. They’re trying to put us in a situation where we’re going to lose our businesses, where we’re going to be forced to accept what Adolf Hitler forced the church to accept in Germany in 1937.”

So, being unable to turn people away from public services just because you don’t like who and what they are, Mr. Boykin, is just like what Hitler and the Third Reich did? The very comparison is frankly absurdly bizarre and ridiculous, and when you invoke that, you’ve already lost the argument and shown everyone with even a tiny bit of a brain just how paranoid and delusional you really are. No longer having the right to discriminate against others at will does not equal persecution, sir. If you truly believe it does, it is you who has the problem, not everyone else.

Boykin then went on to, essentially incite violence:

“We’re at war. This is not about civil rights, this is about the evil that has come into our society and is trying to destroy our ability and our freedom to be able to worship our god as we choose.

We’re not rising up against evil. When we rise up against evil, we’ve got to rise up like an army. We’ve got to act like we’re in the military because, in fact, we are God’s army.”

Not being able to discriminate against others is not stopping you from worshipping your god, Mr. Boykin. However, if anything comes of this incitement to violence that you and your boss Tony Perkins are calling for, you’ll be in jail, because, no matter who you are, that is illegal.
