Former House GOP majority leader Tom DeLay joined Steve Malzberg on his Newsmax program yesterday to discuss the incident in Garland, Texas, last week where two Islamic radicals were killed as they tried to attack an anti-Islam event hosted by Pamela Geller … which naturally led them to a discussion of gay marriage.
While they were on the topic of “religious freedom,” Malzberg asked DeLay about an exchange during the recent Supreme Court oral arguments on marriage equality in which Justice Alito asked Solicitor General Donald Verrilli about the Supreme Court ruling that allowed the government to strip Bob Jones University of its tax exemption because of its racially discriminatory practices, and whether the same thing could happen to a university that opposes same-sex marriage. “I mean, my God, is that the road we’re headed down in this country?” Malzberg asked.
DeLay replied that the left is trying to force gay marriage “down our throats” just like Islamic extremists are “forcing someone’s belief down other people.”
“It certainly is the road we’re headed down by the left, and they’re trying to force it down our throats,” he said, “and people like Pam Geller and many others need to be standing up and speaking out. I mean, right there in the Dallas area, where Garland is, the Muslims have come together and they’re trying to impose Sharia law on a voluntary basis, which is the next step into forcing someone’s belief down other people.”
“I mean, honor killings are happening in this country, manipulation destruction of female genitals is happening in this country,” he continued. “Everything that the radical Islamists are talking about, all these things are in their holy book, and we’ve got to have a discussion about this, and we have to make sure that these kinds of beliefs are not imposed on our Constitution or on our way of life.”
