(1 of 2) Conservative Pundit Compares Birth Control Mandate To Rise Of Nazi Germany

Via: Huffington Post

Conservative commentator Eric Metaxas (see photo) took the religious lobbyists’ argument against birth control coverage to a new extreme on MSNBC Tuesday morning, comparing the Obama administration’s new contraception mandate to the rise of Nazi Germany.

In [my] book, you read about what happened to an amazingly great country, called Germany,” he said in an on-air debate with NARAL Pro-Choice America’s Donna Crane. “I’m half German. Uh, in the early ’30s, little things were happening where the state was bullying the churches. No one spoke up. In the beginning, it always starts really, really small. We need to understand as America, as Americans, if we do not see this as a bright line in the sand, if you’re not a Catholic, if you use contraception, doesn’t matter. Because eventually, this kind of government overreach will affect you. If we don’t speak up, we’re gonna be in trouble.”
