Mike Farris: 'Nazi Germany Would Be Proud' Of Efforts To Rollback Indiana's Discrimination Law

Mike Farris, the Religious Right activist who leads Patrick Henry College and the Home School Legal Defense Association, appeared on “The Lars Larson Show” on Tuesday to defend Indiana’s new “religious freedom” law. Farris dedicated most of the interview to claiming — falsely — that Indiana’s law is no different from other versions of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act passed on the federal level and in other states.

“We are going backwards on religious liberty, back to the Dark Ages of toleration, back to the witch trials, back to the very kinds of things that caused people to get in their ships and cross the ocean and come to the shores of Virginia and Massachusetts,” Farris said, rather ironically.

“This is not just about gay rights,” Farris continued. “This is about, can New York City pass a law that prohibits circumcision, will Orthodox Jews be prohibited from circumcising their little boys? Will pro-life doctors be forced to participate in abortions?”

If gay rights undermine religious freedom, he warned, then America will transform into Nazi Germany: “This is all about unilateral coercion, it’s political correctness with the regimentation and force that Nazi Germany would be proud of.”

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 3/4/15

  • Mike Farris has written legislation that "would allow up to 500 grants of asylum per year to family members fleeing homeschool persecution."
  • Morgan Brittany warns that "if the IRS can get away with targeting and shutting down conservative voices, what do you think the FCC will do? Could it be that someday when you Google conservative websites, they won’t be there? Don’t kid yourself; it could and most probably will happen."
  • Mat Staver says that now that the Alabama Supreme Court has halted gay marriage in the state, all the marriage licenses that had been issued are now void because "it wasn't legal to issue the same-sex marriage licenses throughout the state of Alabama in the first place."
  • Looks like Wiley Drake will be supporting Scott Lively's anti-gay marriage protest outside the Supreme Court, but doing so from California.
  • Finally, BarbWire's Gina Miller issues another dire warning: "It’s not about 'marriage equality' or 'equal rights' or 'anti-bullying.'  It’s about subjugating the American people under the despotic boot of sexual degeneracy, the result of which is a crushing of our God-given freedoms, protected by the First Amendment."

Mike Farris Stopped The ERA Because It Would Lead To Gay Marriage

Earlier this month, David Barton, Rick Green, and Mike Farris held a webinar focused on promoting an Article V Convention of the States, the latest right-wing plan to bring together representatives from all fifty states to draft constitutional amendments that will dramatically limit the power of Congress and the federal government.

WallBuilders has been airing portions of this webinar on its daily radio program this week and on today's installment, Farris noted that lots of conservatives leaders are supporting such a convention, with the exception of the Eagle Forum's Phyllis Schlafly, who has been vehemently opposed to the idea for years.

In defending the need for an Article V convention, Farris bent over backwards to praise Schlafly as his "dear, wonderful friend" who is simply wrong about this issue, saying that "in a fifty years career of absolute perfection, she's entitled to one mistake."

Farris went on a brag that he had worked side-by-side with Schlafly in fighting against the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s, noting that they argued against it by warning that it would lead to gay marriage:

One of the arguments we made was if you do this, it's gonna lead to homosexual marriage and people laughed at us.

Homosexual marriage? That's the craziest idea in the world!

Well, it turns out, we weren't so crazy after all.

Gee, it's good thing they stopped the ERA, otherwise we'd have the legalization of gay marriage rapidly spreading all across the country. Thank goodness Farris and Schlafly stopped that from happening!

"Parental Rights"

"Parental Rights" is a phrase often used to mask a right-wing agenda to undermine the rights of children.
