Anti-Gays: Protecting Gay Kids Worse Than Nazi Furnaces

October 19, 2007 at 7:09 am 1 comment

In yet another sign of how Christianity is being used by anti-gay extremists to justify their homo-hatred, Watchmen on the Walls compares a new California law protecting LGBT kids to the Nazi furnaces used to kill millions of Jews during the Holocaust.

Vlad Kusakin, human rights activist and owner of “The Speaker” media holding company, told the audience: “Now it’s time to rescue our children from the public schools as from a hellish furnace. Just like one who would prescribe the burning of kids in the Nazi’s concentration camps furnaces, now 65 years later Arnold Schwarzenegger opened furnaces which are even worse for our children by his signature. Pray and fast for the kids and families of California and take your kids out of public schools”.

Extremely disturbing, but not unbelievable.

The Watchmen have fomented a particularly virulent strain of homophobia that has resulted in the loss of at least one life. The Southern Poverty Law Center has said that the group is even more physically abusive than Fred “God Hates Fags” Phelps. One of the group’s co-founders Scott Lively was ordered by a civil court judge to pay $20,000 to lesbian photojournalist Catherine Stauffer for dragging her by the hair through the halls of a Portland church in 1991.

The Watchmen may on the surface look like another group of nutty right-wingers, but they should be seen for what they are: a growing hate group spreading domestic terrorism against LGBT people.

As Box Turtle Bulletin points out,

But these extremists aren’t just some fringe part of the Watchmen movement. Scott Lively and Vlad Kusakin, along with Rev. Ken Hutcherson, are among the most prominent U.S.-based leaders. In the Watchmen world, these guys don’t represent the extremes; they’re at the very the core of the movement.
