Jeffress is out of line on Holocaust comment

Robert JeffressPastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church of Dallas recently made the following statement on the Hannity show on Fox News:

“I want to remind people that, you know, the Nazis weren’t able to take the Jews to the crematoriums immediately. The German people wouldn’t have allowed for it. Instead, the Nazis had to change public opinion. They marginalized the Jewish people, disparaged them and make them objects of contempt.”

Jeffress was talking about the impending doom of same-sex marriage coming to the remaining 13 states. He considers that persecution of Christians is equal to 12 million people being killed during the Holocaust (some of them, by the way, gays and lesbians targeted because of their sexual orientation).

While others in the area have tried to unseat him and take the top spot, Jeffress has been the Dallas LGBT community’s public enemy No. 1 since he plastered a “Gay is not OK” sign on his downtown church.

How should we respond? The LGBT community needs to just sit back for a few minutes on this one. Let’s let the Jewish community respond. I’ll add responses here as I get them.
