Vertical-video-addict Joshua Feuerstein, last seen showing his children how to fire guns in the backyard, now says the jailing of Kim Davis amounts to a “Christian holocaust“:

The Christian Holocaust has officially begun in America!

I told you a long time ago, ladies and gentlemen, that the LGBT community has one agenda and that is to come after Christians. That has been the agenda all along. They want to put the clamp on Christianity in America, and you either back them and support them or you’re going to jail…

… I challenge you to get there, to Rowan County, and let’s make sure that Kim is let out of jail. It’s not fair that a Christian is persecuted and thrown in jail simply for not endorsing gay marriage.

As usual, Feuerstein is lying to his audience.

It’s not a Holocaust. That’s just insulting. No one’s rounding up Christians and killing them. Shit, no one’s even walking into churches and asking them to change their minds. We’re just asking Christians who work for the government to obey the law.

Kim Davis doesn’t have to “endorse” gay marriage. She just has to do her job and sign marriage licenses. That’s all it’ll take to get her out of jail right now.

We’re not keeping her in there. She’s keeping herself in there.

As for the gay “agenda,” the only thing gays and lesbians have asked for in this entire controversy is the ability to get a marriage license in the county where they pay taxes. Because of Kim Davis, they couldn’t get it. But she’s the real victim here because the people who pay her salary were asking her to (gasp) do her job.

The only people more ignorant than Feuerstein on these issues are the people who comment under his videos to agree with his lies.

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.shutterstock_296153609
