Yesterday, Davis’ attorney, Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel, appeared on “Crosstalk” to defend Davis, claiming that she is simply trying to do her job, or at least, her job as she sees it. He even likened her to a Jewish person living under Nazi rule.
When host Jim Schneider of VCY America asked why Davis won’t resign, he said that the county’s residents support her and “she’d probably be able to win the governor’s seat right now rather than just the clerk of Rowan County. She’s there to do a duty, a job and the job duty was changed.”
“Does that mean that if you’re Christian, don’t apply here; if you’re a Jew, you gotta get — what happened in Nazi Germany, what happened there first, they removed the Jews from government public employment, then they stopped patronizing them in their private businesses, then they continued to stigmatize them, then they were the ‘problems,’ then they killed them,” Staver said. “The fact of the matter is, she has a right to this employment and you don’t lose your constitutional liberties just because you are employed by the government.”
Yes being jailed for refusing to follow the law, while discriminating against gay people, is JUST like when the Nazis carted the Jewish people off to the gas chambers.
Why didn't I see that before?
Oh and there are plenty of people willing to take the "Christian persecution" metaphor and run with it.
Here is more from the fine folks over at Wonkette:
Of course while all this is going on marriage licenses are being handed out to gay couples in Rowan County like Tic Tacs.
Update: I think this belongs here.
