Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver Grilled By Congressman Over Support for Anti-Gay Discrimination: VIDEO

Liberty Counsel chairman and homophobe Mat Staver (right) appeared before a congressional committee on threats to religious freedom yesterday and was grilled by Rep. Jarrold Nadler (D-NY) about his justifications for discriminating against gay people.

StaverRight Wing Watch reports:

“I don’t see any difference at all” between refusing a Jewish couple and a gay couple, Nadler said.

He continued: “I’m holding out myself in commerce and my religious belief is that I don’t want black people or Jewish people or gay people in my restaurant and the federal government says that is discrimination, is that a violation of the freedom of religion?”

“No,” Staver conceded.

Before Staver could get there, however, quite a bit of squirming and invalid argumentation took place. The results are somewhat humorous, if not pathetic.
