Prominent conservative activist: Oppose marriage equality like you'd oppose genocide

by Jeremy Hooper

With the losses mounting, the social conservatives' rhetoric turns predictably more dangerous and offensive:

Screen Shot 2014-08-15 At 9.59.18 Am"This is not an issue in which you can remain silent any more than you can remain silent during Nazi Germany. That was a moral issue, it was not defined by geography, there was a moral imperative there of the dignity of the human being, you can’t remain silent there and expect no consequences. Nor can you remain silent or advocate to the contrary with regards to the undermining of marriage as a union of a man and a woman." [SOURCE]
—Mat Staver, Liberty Counsel head, Liberty University Law School Dean, Fox News regular, lawyer who is arguing in favor of Florida's marriage ban, and conservative "expert" recently invited to testify before a US House committee

Next month, Staver will be a major presence at the Family Research Council's Values Voter Summit, featured in several speaking slots right alongside any number of U.S. Senators, members of Congress, and prominent conservative voices. So don't for a second see him as disconnected from the mainstream. He is the mainstream conservative movement. This is what passes for acceptable rhetoric within the think tanks and social clubs of one of America's prominent political parties.
