Barton’s Loony Anti-Gay Pals

The Texas Freedom Network notes on its blog that David Barton, the Christian Nation apologist and chief distorter of American history, will be promoting on his internet radio show this week the work of Brad Dacus, president of the virulently anti-gay and Orwellianly misnamed Pacific Justice Institute.

So what’s wrong with Dacus? This is a lunatic who actually argued that stopping same sex marriage in California was just like stopping Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. Video and a transcript below the fold.

There was another time in history when people, when the bell tolled. And the question was whether or not they were going to hear it. The time was during Nazi Germany with Adolf Hitler. You see he brought crowds of clergy together to assure them that he was going to look after the church. And one of the members, bold and courageous, Reverend Niemoller made his way to the front and boldly said “Hitler, we are not concerned about the church. Jesus Christ will take care of the church. We are concerned about the soul of Germany.” Embarrassed and chagrined, his peers quickly shuffled him to the back. And as they did Adolf Hitler said, “The soul of Germany, you can leave that to me.” And they did, and because they did bombs did not only fall upon the nation of Germany, but also upon the church and their testimony to this very day. Let us not make that mistake folks. Let us hear the bell! Vote on Proposition 8!
