Audio: My civil marriage destroys anti-gay people's religious freedom (*but not their self-centeredness, apparently)

by Jeremy Hooper

Pastor Jim Garlow, longtime practitioner of the faith-guided discriminatory arts, is back to make more claims about what certain America taxpayers' civil marriage supposedly do to people like him, the apparent owners of America. Clip comes from David Barton's reliably absurd WallBuilders show:

I love how it's always a warning that they set apart from their present day actions. "They're gonna treat us like [insert bad thing]," as if (a) any movement has the power to ascribe an undeserved branding onto people and (b) these anti-equality spokesfolks are innocent bystanders in this process.

The truth, of course, is that future Americans will judge past generations on their merits. And when they look back on a man who has equated the tragedy of 9/11 with the supposed tragedy of marriage equality? Why yes, they might have a few less-than-supportive thoughts. That's not on us—it's on Jim, Maggie, and an entire movement that chose to take us to "culture war" at a time when national unity could've accomplished such great things.
