A few weeks ago we noted that since Religious Right leaders keep comparing themselves to Dietrich Bonhoeffer, it only stood to reason that they see their opponents as akin to Nazis.
Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber, at least, has been very open about this. Just a few weeks ago, he plainly stated that those who support marriage equality or a reproductive rights are “on the wrong side of history” and “advocating things that are equally as horrific” as what the Nazis did.
But just in case that wasn’t clear enough, Barber followed it up today with a another Bonhoeffer/Nazi comparison where he explicitly stated that he is comparing those who support a woman’s right to choose to the Nazis:
Let’s be very clear here. What we’re talking about here is, as we’ve long called it, an abortion holocaust. Are we comparing the pro-choice movement to the Nazi movement? Yes! Absolutely.
In recent weeks we talked about how the pro-life movement really embraces the mantle of Dietrich Bonhoeffer …This is the modern-day anti-holocaust movement; the pro-life movement is.
And, you know, I was, a few months ago, in the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC and I was taken by how the arguments that the Nazis made in order to dehumanize the Jews are the same arguments that we hear coming from the so-called pro-choice movement to dehumanize the unborn child.
