Texas Republican: Separation Of Church And State Is Comparable To Nazis Executing Jews

    The GOP war against secularism continued in Texas on Tuesday when a Republican state senator used his inauguration speech to compare it to the Holocaust.

    Upon taking the oath of office, Charles Perry made it clear that he’s going to do everything he can to tear apart the foundational values of our nation and replace them with religious extremism. Because apparently, America isn’t enough like Iran yet.

    As many other conservatives have done in the past, Perry trotted out the horrors of Nazi Germany to argue in favor of turning America into a Christian state where biblical law reigns supreme instead of the Constitution. He described a scene where people are led like lambs to their own executions and compared that to government making laws that Christians don’t approve of.

    There were 10,000 people that were paraded into a medical office under the guise of a physical. As they stood with their back against the wall, they were executed with a bullet through the throat. Before they left, 10,000 people met their fate that way.

    Is it not the same when our government continues to perpetuate laws that lead citizens away from God? The only difference is that the fraud of the Germans was more immediate and whereas the fraud of today’s government will not be exposed until the final days and will have eternal-lasting effects.

    Here’s the video via Youtube.

    Yet again, a Republican uses the tired Nazi comparison in an effort to convince people to fear and hate the government. Obviously, this isn’t surprising, but it’s still wrong nonetheless. Clearly, the government is not executing or persecuting anyone because of their religious beliefs, which is exactly what the Nazis did. The willful ignorance of what Nazis are all about has plagued the GOP for years. Perhaps a look in a mirror is in order.

    Here’s just quick list of Nazi characteristics. Notice anything interesting?

    • Obsessed with national power and pride.

    • Rule of the few.

    • Survival of the fittest.

    • Media as a political propaganda machine.

    • Obsessed with security and war.

    • Indoctrination.

    • Re-writing history.

    • Hatred of intellectuals.

    • Hatred of communists.

    • Obsessed with keep women in the home.

    • Align yourself strongly with corporations.

    • Racial superiority.

    • Hatred of unions.

    • Election rigging.

    • Creating scapegoats to blame problems.

    And last but not least…

    • Obsessed with Christianity and with creating a Christian state.

    As you can see, it turns out the Republican Party has a lot more in common with the Nazis than they’d like us to believe. As you can also see, secularism is not a Nazi or fascist characteristic. It’s a trait of a democratic republic that has separated the civil power from the ecclesiastical power. Combining them is a dangerous action that leaves the nation and government vulnerable and far less representative of the people. Constitutional law would be disregarded and replaced with a religious book that only favors those who practice that particular religion.

    Texas does not need people like Charles Perry in positions of power. The state needs someone who will represent everyone in the state no matter what religion they practice. Imposing one’s religious beliefs onto the rest of the population is unconstitutional and contrary to what America is all about. It’s about religious and personal freedom. What Republicans like Perry are preaching would do the exact opposite and Nazis would feel right at home.

    1. If only we could take aim at religious figures who incite terrorism daily, like ministers who promote killing gays in Africa, promote killing of abortion doctors, calling atheists to be killed, promoting after school programs like The Good New Club, which promote religion and ask the kids to bully other kids into believing in their God by telling kids “their going to hell, if they are religious, which is hate speech and should not be tolerated in the public school system.

    2. Plenty of Texans understand the importance of secular government. The hicks in the sticks will keep electing fools like this, but the rest of us will continue to fight against their unAmerican vision.

    3. The Separation Of Church And Hate:

      There is a reason why Church and State must always remain separate. Let’s get something straight, right from the start: A theocratic state is not a free state, and never will be. I’m sure it was never Jesus’ intention nor His will, that anyone should be dominated in His name, the name of Christ. That is the will of men. To be accurate, the concept in itself is anti-Christian. You can only follow Christ by choice, not by legislation.

      It seems some people are more intent on casting stones at perceived sinners than propagating the love of Christ. ~ “Above all else, I command you love one another”. ~ This was the message that Jesus preached, and as far as I can see, the worth of a soul will only be measured as such. But I can assure you of one thing, when your time of judgment comes, you won’t be asked to recite scripture, but rather, if anything, the question will be; did you get the message and live by it?

      For all of you people out there on the religious right, you should try to remember that looking for sins to condemn, and people to persecute in the name of God, is just Satan’s way of keeping you from seeing what is good and praiseworthy. It’s Satan’s favorite means of deceit; getting people to hate and kill each other in the name of Jesus and God. Twisting scripture to incite hatred and division.

      Understand this; that by doing so, you are defaming the name of Christ, associating Jesus with bigotry and hate. Jesus was never cursed with these feelings, these sins that you commit in His name. It’s widely agreed that He rose above it all, and to use His name for the justification of spreading contempt and hatred for anyone is true heresy. It isn’t Pro-Christ by any means, but clearly Anti-Christ.

    4. The Christian Dilemma:

      The greatest threat to America, and indeed to the rest of world, at this point in history, comes from the staunch advocates of right wing ideology, and I must submit this warning to you: There is a grave problem with the right wing movement, in that; they seem to possess a distorted sense of entitlement. They’ve set themselves apart, and seem to think that their faith gives them the right to view the world from a platitude of conceit, through condescending eyes, and with a false sense of superiority. They actually believe themselves to be superior beings, with a manifest destiny and some strange notion that God is on their side. A people with a desire to conquer, under the false guise of Christianity, seeking to dominate in the name of Christ, their view of humanity being reduced to nothing more than a matter of “us” and “them”.

      What they fail to realize is; if the Christ you believe in leads you to view other humans as lesser beings, then you are a follower of the anti-Christ. The plain truth is; God doesn’t have a religion and God doesn’t discriminate. Any religion that professes to be the only true religion,or that they‘re special in the eyes of God preaches false doctrine. If the Spirit of God is truly with you, it will only be known by acts of “unconditional” love and charity. No religion can claim exclusive rights to God. He belongs to all that He has created, and to foster a belief in “us” and“them” is to divide humanity, not unite it.

      And so it will be, in The End, that those who have set themselves apart from their fellow man will find that they have set themselves apart from God. The worth of a soul will only be measured by how much it has loved, nothing more, nothing less. Woe to those who have taken the widow’s mite and built castles and empires in His name. They have incurred a great accountability, their suffering will be unending.

      Even Jesus will not claim to be Christian, but will only proclaim the glory of the Father. And when He returns they will shout: "Here we are Lord!" And He will respond: "I never knew you". They have forsaken the Word and have become prisoners of the Numbers.

      Those who have put themselves first will be last.

    5. The characteristics you mentioned from Nazis are similar to the Republican party. Obviously, you don't have a clue who the Nazis were. You stated, "aligning yourself strongly with corporations". Really! Hitler used massive regulations against corporations because that's how he controlled them. Does that sound like Obama and the democrats or what! How about indoctrination? It's known that 90% of our professors at universities are liberal and have been indoctrinating our students for over 70 years. Election rigging…democratic party has been using this tactic since FDR. These are facts!! Again, need to know your history! Hitler wasn't trying to create a christian state…again, you are so wrong on that one. I can go on with your other characteristics, but why? I think people can find out for themselves. You are an idiot!! I guess you like re-writing history too!

      • But your facts are a deflection from what we are talking about: There is very little difference between facism and religion (theocracy). [We are not talking about Hitler] Thay have the same goals and use the same methods; just different names!
