Good As You, a gay activism blog, discovered that a California “pro-family” organization is comparing court clerks who issue marriage licenses for gays to the Nazi gassing the Jews
Good as You posts a screen grab from the Campaign for Children and Families showing highly volatile text before it was “scrubbed” from the site (and Google’s cache), which read the following:
Remember, even if county clerks tell you they MUST follow the Supreme Court decision that’s not true and you should tell them so… Ask you county clerk if they were a Nazi officer during WWII and had been ordered to gas they Jews. Would they?
History is replete with examples of doing what was right despite unjust laws and tyrannical orders… The post-WWII Nuremberg trials punishing military officers who followed orders and committed crimes against humanity.
Yes, a group that claims to be promoting values is comparing a legal union between consenting adults to the genocide of millions.
The Campaign for Children and Families is a 501(c)(3) non-profit… which is unusual, because according to the IRS, groups with this status, “may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities.” One look at the group’s homepage indicates that their main intent is to influence legislation.
On the not so controversial side Cal Law’s Legal Pad blog suggests that if the “California Marriage Protection Act” passes in November, the result could be the elimination of state recognition of “marriages.” In summary, they believe the legal interpretation could come down to this:
“We could hypothetically resolve this whole mess by requiring the state to call all formal unions ‘domestic partnerships’ and leave it to the churches to decide who’s ‘married.'”
That sounds rational. But would the gay Nazis approve?
