Matt Barber of the Liberty Counsel today on his radio show said that “President Obama has called Jesus a ‘liar’” by invoking His name in support of same-sex marriage, and added, “there’s a word for this: ‘heresy’.”
Barber falsely suggested that “Jesus himself” spoke out against homosexuality.
The radical religious right has been out of control since President Obama’s May 9 announcement that he supports same-sex marriage equality. Last week, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, as The New Civil Rights Movement reported, said that same-sex marriage “will make the abortion issue look minor.”
Last month, Barber advocated violence by people of faith against “the secularist left” whom he called “bullies,” who need to be punched in the face, and earlier this year falsely claimed there is “no evidence” of anti-gay violence but the “specter” of violence against gay people has forced churches into the closet.
Also last month, Opposing Views reported:
Barber compared the health insurance mandate to Muslim terrorists forcing people to kill family members: “That is no different than the Muslim terrorist going into the village, holding the gun to your head and saying ‘kill your family member or you will suffer the full weight of our tyranny.’ This is all tyranny. This president is engaging in tyranny.”
