    In all fairness, the title of the article that appears below is a bit over the top. I did not read or hear that she said that the students are like “demonic Nazis who rape gun owners” but, even at that, her words are pretty deplorable.

    https://www.rawstory.com/2018/03/hitlers-regime-took-guns-televangelists-say-parkland-students-like-demonic-nazis-rape-gun-owners/

    Now I realize that by posting this, I’m going to immediately jumped on as a bigot and Christian-phoebe and you are entitled to believe that if you wish. However, know this. My purpose is really to try to understand what is going on here. To grasp where this woman and those like here are coming from, whether or not they actually believe what they are saying, and how, exactly does attacking children by likening them to Nazis mesh with their Christian faith.

    In her words:



    OK, I get this much. She is a conservative. Conservatives believe the morality – or what they consider morality-has suffered, especially in the schools, I also get that conservative – as a knee jerk reaction, freak out at the mention of gun control. BUT , what I do not get is the need to vilify children who are literally fighting for the right to live long enough to become adults. Again, how does attacking children mesh with Christian values. I might also ask, how does wanting more deadly weapons around mesh with Christian values, but I don’t want to make this to complicated

    Lastly, I would like an explanation as to how lying conforms to her Christian values. Yes a lie. Failing to mention that Hitler confiscated guns from the Jews. A lie of omission is still a lie.

    Let’s here it folks, who can explain this “Christian”

    The nazis disarmed the people before they began the pogroms. Once disarmed, there is no way to stop rape, or violent robbery, or indeed anything. Once disarmed, the public is helpless prey. So the comparison is fair.

    Televangelists and now it's clear 80% of evangelicals are not Christians. They pretend to be but they aren't. They champion and voted for Trump one of the most immoral orange turds ever who is a self admitted sexual predator and endorsed an accused pedophile for public office, they now demonize children.

    This year has been quite clarifying as far as 'evangelicals' go. They are not Christians.

    Is it possible that you do not understand that they disarmed the Jews? Do you deny that is a fact that Swaggart dishonestly omitted?

    You're using the disarming of Jews in Nazi Germany as an argument for disarming Americans. haha.

    This is a bullshit red herring logical fallacy intended to derail the thread because you have nothing intelligent or relevant to contribute. The fact that he may not be a perfect kid in no ways changes the present day facts or mitigates the stupidity, dishonesty and hypocrisy of Swaggart
