On Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio program today, Matt Barber declared that the vitriol aimed at Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis for prohibiting her office from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples is reminiscent of the days of Sodom and Gomorrah and the Inquisition, as LGBT activists insist that everyone "come on board with our pagan sexuality or we will literally kill you."
"This whole saga," he said, "is reminiscent of the story of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19 ... The homosexual men of Sodom and Gomorrah, they surrounded the house and they said, 'Send them out' and they pounded on the doors and there is this spirit of anger and lust. This white-hot hatred that we see levied toward Kim Davis and her family and Liberty Counsel right now ... the attitude is we demand that you affirm our position, that you call evil good and good evil, that you go against your conscience and what the Bible teaches about sex and sexuality and the reality of marriage as being between a male and female. You must leave all that and come on board with our pagan sexuality or we will literally kill you."
"They also want to crush dissent," he continued, "and compel people to make some kind of public statement, an overt act that affirms and confirms the sin that these folks are engaged in. If somebody won't do that, or even if they do do that, just the idea that they themselves, in their own mind and in their own conscience, continue to disagree; you know, we saw with the Inquisition and other things where folks would do all the steps, but just the fact that they still held in the heart of hearts opposition to certain theological differences or, in this case, political and spiritual differences, just because they hold that in their heart of hearts, the only thing left to do is to kill somebody. And it's that kind of white-hot hatred and anger that we see rising up with these death threats and these vile attacks."
