Here's the latest conservative outlet equating gay rights with slavery; yes, slavery, and yes, literally

Moreno argues that the gay rights movement is not, in fact, a civil rights movement that betters minority freedom and our nation. Instead, it's much more equality to the proslavery movement. No, I'm not making this up:

At the time of the Founding, slaveholders recognized that slavery contradicted the principles of the Declaration of Independence—Jefferson and others repeated that slavery was wrong—but they pleaded for toleration in dealing with a condition that they could not immediately and fully set right. Over time they stopped seeking mere toleration, began defending slavery as a “positive good,” and objected to any public policy that implied its wrongness. The most radical of them, like George Fitzhugh, argued that slavery was a better social system than free labor.

The pro-homosexual movement has followed a similar trajectory, from toleration to equality to supremacy.

The homosexual-rights movement has long claimed the civil rights movement as its model. But its increasingly strident effort to suppress all moral and religious dissent makes it look more like the antebellum proslavery movement.

FULL: The gay-rights movement has followed not the trajectory of the anti-slavery movement, but of those who supported slavery. [Federalist]

I always wondered what the anti-gay movement would look like in its desperation. Some things have nearly followed my guesses, but there are other roads I didn't even think they would go down. But sure enough, go down them they have.

Oh, and who's all about helping Moreno push this view? Why none other than the supposedly nice and measured and "fresh" voice Ryan T. Anderson, who is enthusiastically pushing the piece around Twitter:

Because of course he is.
