• Clyburn: Religious Freedom Laws Like Post-Slavery Segregation

    As liberals desperately try to keep their anti-religious freedom crusade alive, the comparisons they make just keep getting sillier by the day.

    The latest elected official to make a ridiculous comparison to the religious freedom laws that have been passed in several states, following Bill Clinton and Chuck Schumer’s lead, is South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn.

    “I think I’ve reached the point I’m going to stop talking internally,” Clyburn said.

    “What we are beginning to experience legislatively throughout the country, are the same legislative activities that we experienced in this country following the ending of reconstruction,” Clyburn said.

    So there you have it.

    This fool is now comparing the recently adopted religious freedom laws to racist, segregationist laws that democrats passed after slavery.

    Christians–and Muslims, for that matter–only want statewide religious freedom laws, that mirror the federal act signed by Bill Clinton, as a guard against being forced to participate in activities that go against their faith.

    Engaging in this kind of hyperbole makes Rep. Clyburn an embarrassment to his office and to the state of South Carolina.
