It’s spilling out of virtual territory and into the campaign. Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute (no relationship to the Pacific Legal Foundation which backed the lawsuit against Measure T) is basically comparing homosexuals to Hitler.
“There was another time in history when people, when the bell tolled. And the question was whether or not they were going to hear it. The time was during Nazi Germany with Adolf Hitler. You see he brought crowds of clergy together to assure them that he was going to look after the church.
And one of the members, bold and courageous, Reverend Niemand (sp?) made his way to the front and (inaudible) said “Hitler, we are not concerned about the church. Jesus Christ will take care of the church.
We are concerned about the soul of Germany.” Embarrassed and chagrined, his peers quickly shuffled him to the back.
And as they did Adolf Hitler said, “The soul of Germany, you can leave that to me.” And they did, and because they did bombs did not only fall upon the nation of Germany, but also upon the church and their testimony to this very day.
Let us not make that mistake folks. Let us hear the bell! Vote on Proposition 8!”
It’s catchy. The Republicans of Monterey County sent out an email comparing Obama to Hitler. I wonder if they’ve been consulting with the Republican Party of Pennsylvania who compared a vote for Obama to the Holocaust.
