Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Matt Barber were absolutely beside themselves on today’s “Faith and Freedom” radio broadcast over the fact that Planned Parenthood staff had reportedly used “Genderbread Person” diagrams during a sex ed class at a California high school last month.
The diagram, which is designed to teach the differences between biological sex, sexual attraction, gender identity, and gender expression, had Staver and Barber fuming, with Staver repeatedly calling it “insane,” “nuts,” and “absurd” while Barber decried it as “wicked sexual anarchist psychobabble.”
“You can think you’re a ham sandwich,” Barber said, “but it doesn’t make you a ham sandwich.”
Staver was so outraged by this diagram, in fact, that is he calling on Republicans to shut down the government, if necessary, in order to cut off all federal funding to Planned Parenthood.
“What they’re trying to do is harm young people,” Staver said. “They’re trying to harm a generation. We ought to be outraged at this. This underscores why Planned Parenthood should receive no dollars from any government. We now have a majority Republican Senate and a majority Republican House … That majority must defund Planned Parenthood. There is no reason, and if the government has to shut down, let the government shut down.”
