Mat Staver: Passing the LGBTQ Equality Act Would “Open the Door to Pedophilia”

Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver is the latest Christian leader to lie about what will happen if the Equality Act passes Congress.

The correct answer? It would add explicit non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people to federal civil rights law. It’s just basic civil rights protections.

Staver’s answer? It’ll lead to pedophilia.

He made the comments on yesterday’s Faith and Freedom Podcast.

If the so-called H.R. 5 Equality Act is passed, it will open the door to pedophilia. That’s right. There’s a huge danger in so many areas, but this is also one…

… Linda Harvey wrote an article. It says, “Equality Act opens back door to pedophilia.” And she begins by saying, “Jason is 13 and wants to date his 21 year old student teacher. If the LGBT Equality Act passes through Congress, the age of consent barrier may fall and allow him to do so.” This is not hypothetical

It’s not hypothetical. It’s insane. It’s a lie. It’s a myth conservative Christians tell themselves because they’ve lost all ability to distinguish truth from fiction.

Notice that Staver’s “evidence” of this theory isn’t some quotation from a liberal organization. It’s not some secret document he discovered linked to those groups. It’s just one of his colleagues who made it all up, so he’s amplifying it on her behalf.

It’s incredible how these people are so worried about the moral decay of society that they would obstruct civil rights legislation, while saying absolutely nothing about the pussy-grabbing, affair-having, hush money-paying child-separating president.
