GOP Candidate Ray Moore Warns Of 'Holocaust' From Teaching Evolution & Homosexuality: AUDIO

Ray Moore

South Carolina GOP lieutenant governor candidate Ray Moore is shoring up his conservative bona fides by claiming that schools are pushing a "silent holocaust" against churches and Christianity by teaching evolution and protecting LGBT students from abuse. While speaking with conservative talk show host Steve Deace, Moore said,

80 percent of Southern Baptists youths are leaving the church and abandoning the Christian faith, and we think all of this is pretty much attributable to government schooling. We think the main culprit is public schooling. So there’s a holocaust, a silent holocaust going on in our evangelical churches.

And thus was Godwin's Law invoked and Moore immediately lost the argument. Undeterred by the utter insanity of comparing dropping attendance rates in churches to the wholesale slaughter of almost 6 million Jews in one of the greatest ethnic cleansing movements of the 20th century, Moore continued by comparing gay marriage to a virus:

[S]o why is same-sex marriage and abortion and all of these viruses latching on to our society so readily? And we think part of it is government-sponsored education where they’re thoroughly and aggressively teaching socialism, humanism; turning their hearts away from Christ.

  2. Call him crazy, but the GOP really does want to shut down public schooling in America. No joke.

  3. "We think the main culprit is public schooling."

    Yeap, it's that damned education! We didn't have this problem when kids were ignorant. I tell you, there's a war on stupidity in this country, and we're going to fight it to the last teabagger is locked up in a FEMA death camp.

  4. I thought the main culprit was Bengzai. Right?

    So education is working! Excellent!

  6. He has no knowledge, he is full of anger and no-one should tolerate what he said.

  7. So this neanderthal thinks we should advocate abuse against LGBT students. He probably advocates stoning of LGBT adults.

  8. Christianity is just an idea and a belief. No one believes in the Greek Gods, The Norse Gods, or the Egyptian Pantheon any more either; so why shouldn't Christianity (as it now has become) fall to the wayside for a better belief system? Some of Christianity's tenets are Universal--they're found in every religion/philosophy-- so they'll live on; but the theocracy of Islam, Christianity and Judaism needs to fall away.

  9. @WOODROAD34 :

    Did you say no one believes in the Greek gods ?

    You risk their wrath, my friend !

  14. I never thought I'd see the term 'holocaust' rehabilitated to mean something good, but here it is. Bring it on.

  15. Weird. I could have sworn gay people were killed in the holocaust too.

  17. If 80 percent of Southern Baptist young people are leaving the church, I think they need to stop looking for a scapegoat and face up to the possibility that they are driving them away on their own. Most intelligent people find intolerance to be patently offensive.

  18. @majortom- you beat me to the punch. It would be funny if it wasn't so sad that this idiot who is running for public office thinks that gays and evolution are driving folks away from his church. Ray Moore- YOU and your attitudes are driving people away from your church. How can you worry about the spec in your brother's eye when you can't see the plank in your own eye. (I may have escaped religion but I remember what I read back then and love to quote it back to them)

  19. So, if 80% of "christian youth" are leaving the church, it may be true that public education works. It may ALSO be true that southern baptist churches provide oppressive, confining, and rejecting experiences for such youth. How does a young person hear a constant stream of "we hate 'special interests'; we hate homosexuals; we hate uppity women; we hate science/technology..." without feeling excluded or oppressed?

  20. 80% of Southern Baptist youth are deserting that rotten church? Damn, that's good news. Let's try for a perfect 100%!

  21. 80% of Southern Baptist youth leaving the church? I rather doubt that -- but I would certainly LIKE to believe that. If that were even partly true it would be a good thing. In such a case, the Southern Baptists are clearly casting-about for a scapegoat and I guess 'edumacashun' is as good as any. Actually -- it's possibly true too; the more educated people become the less likely they are to swallow the repressive and narrow-minded policies of the Southern Baptists. Clearly, education is doing SOME good after all.

  22. So when anti-gays follow the Nazi playbook against gays, and even call for our extermination in no uncertain terms, gays according to anti-gay are not allowed to call it a holocaust.
    But when gays strive for equality, apparently it's OK for anti-gays to cry "holocaust" on their right to commit a holocaust.

    I get it now, Christians, clean cup, clean cup, move down, move down, clean cup clean cup move down.......

  24. I'm sure rhetoric like this will just reverse the tide of kids leaving the church by next week when word gets out. Yes, he's providing them with a very compelling argument to change their secular ways.
