Mat Staver continues ugly rhetoric days after misleading Congress

Mat Staver
Definition of the phrase "totally devoid of shame" - lying to Congress and then returning to your radio program to repeat the rhetoric which led you to lie in the first place, complete with analogies to Hitler murdering Jewish people.

Or to save time, why not put a picture of Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver next to the phrase.
From Right Wing Watch:

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Mat Staver and Matt Barber discussed the situation involving the baker in Colorado who is vowing to go to jail rather than comply with an order to stop discriminating against gay customers by refusing to provide them with wedding cakes, saying that forcing him to bake gay wedding cakes would be like forcing Jesus to build a bed for an adulterer or a gallows for Hitler upon which to hang Jews:


 Barber: So, to make that comparison would be like saying the adulteress goes to Jesus and says 'you're a carpenter, I want you to make a frame for my adultery bed, for me and then men I'm committing adultery with to commit our sinful acts.' And it would be like some tribunal coming to Jesus and saying you're a carpenter, you don't have a right to refuse to make this bed for the adulteress because you make beds for people who are actually married ...

Staver: It's like a carpenter who [is told] you can build this house for this person or you can build this gallows for Hitler. And you can use your talents, we're going to force you to use the talents to build the gallows for Hitler and we're going to hang Jews on the gallows.

I think Mat made it clear to Congress where he stands and it's all BS. The questions were clear and his answers were were not.

What gets me is they think they know what Jesus would say about building a bed for an adulterer.
There is no comparison between making a bed and making a machine to kill.
