Minnesota Homophobe Group M4M Tells Pastors To Compare Gays To Nazis

Posted by Phoenix Woman on March 28, 2013

Once again, Sally Jo Sorensen has the deets:

PinktriangleDuring last fall’s debate over the amendment to restrict the freedom to marry, one of the spokesters for Minnesota for Marriage (M4M) compared the tactics of Vote No supporters with Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime. M4M quickly repudiated the claim, but has revived the trope in news materials for April  7 church-based organizing.

Think Progress’s Zack Ford first reported about the April 7 materials in Minnesota Equality Opponents Urge Pastors To Compare Gay Activists To Nazis:

The coalition that advocated last year for a constitutional amendment
banning same-sex marriage in Minnesota has continued to fight as
legislators now consider a marriage equality bill. The so-called “Minnesota for Marriage” coalition is urging pastors to use their sermon on April 7 to take a stand against same-sex marriage, and the provided materials — a “Sermon starter,”
accompanying PowerPoint presentation, and bulletin insert — are
gratuitously anti-gay. Notably, one passage not only condemns gay people
as having a chosen behavior, but then compares the LGBT movement to
Nazis for peddling untruths:

Third, there is a definitive problem. Homosexuals claim:
“We were born this way; it is in our genes; God made us gay.” They cite
old “gay gene” studies predominantly conducted by researchers who are
homosexuals; studies that have been repudiated by credible research.
Yet these same biased and discredited studies have been widely
publicized by the liberal media as true and factual. They
essentially practice Joseph Goebel’s Nazi philosophy of propaganda,
which is basically this: Tell a lie long enough and loud enough and
eventually most mindless Americans will believe it
.  . . .

. . . To sum up: LGBT activists use Nazi propaganda techniques, homosexuality
is comparable to promiscuity, adultery, and pedophilia, and gays are
sinners who have “perverted and twisted desires.”

M4M and other opponents to marriage freedom have been distorting the arguments that Minnesotans United for all Families and other amendment foes made, as we’ve explored in a series of posts: Draz missed Winona Daily News coverage of campaign against marriage amendment, and Yo, Draz: MN United, Project 515 Education Campaign recycle “Grandparents” ad from 2012 and Don’t lie to children: at MN capitol, NOM leader Brian Brown lies to (and about) adults instead

Go read the whole thing, then pass it around. It deserves wider airing.
