Anti-Defamation League Condemns Tony Perkins For 'Using Holocaust Imagery' To Attack Gay Rights
Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League released a statement yesterday condemning Family Research Council President Tony Perkins for warning that supporters of gay rights will soon “start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians” to camps, rebuking his remarks as “offensive and inappropriate.”
Tony Perkins’ invocation of the Holocaust in his statement referring to a judge’s finding that a baker unlawfully discriminated against gay customers is offensive and inappropriate.
There is no comparison between contemporary American political issues and the actions of Hitler’s regime during the Holocaust. Such inappropriate analogies only serve to trivialize the Holocaust and are deeply offensive to Jews and other survivors, as well as those Americans who fought valiantly against the Nazis in World War II.
We urge Perkins to apologize and to refrain from using Holocaust imagery to make his point.
