“An evangelical Christian suggested in a video posted to Facebook that Christians should fight against gay rights with firearms.” That’s how huffingtonpost.com‘s Gay Voices editor Hilary Hanson sums up Joshua Feuerstein’s message, which has gone viral in the gay community – and beyond! We’re talking more than 244k shares and counting. [Click here to view.] After highlighting a couple of inaccuracies in Feuerstein’s evidence of the left’s war on Christianity – ignoring his factual examples – Hanson reveals her alleged anti-gay money shot . . .
“They are coming after our First Amendment constitutional rights,” Feuerstein puffs. “Well, check this out. This is one pastor that will not bow. Why? Because my First Amendment right is guaranteed by my Second Amendment right.” He then brandishes what appears to be an assault rifle.
“Think about that, ladies and gentlemen,” he continues. “It’s time we finally take a stand and say ‘no more.’ We’re not backing up any farther. We’re not going to allow a tyrannical government to try and strip away our rights as Christians and try to demonize us so that they can make the Bible bigoted.”
Is that suggesting that Christians should “fight against gay rights with firearms”? Once again, the proponents of civilian disarmament see resistance to government expansion as aggression. Once again, they’re portraying conservatives as bigoted, violent insurrectionists.
Have you seen any of those videos where black youths violently attack people and property displaying a Confederate flag? Could we see the day when mobs attack people and property with a pro-gun message? I hope not. But the anti-gun movement has been waging a cultural war against gun owners for some time. And that’s where cultural wars can end-up. Wait. Is that an aggressive statement?
