In an interview with
Wingnut World Daily World Net Daily (WND), Pat Buchanan, once senior adviser to American Presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan, spoke on the controversy over the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration and is urging Christians to fight the “LGBT fanatics” even if it means violence.
“This battle can be won, but it cannot be won if we do not stand our ground and fight against this moral onslaught from the left,” he said. “The hill to stand on and fight on is the God-given natural right and the constitutional principle that people of faith may choose not to associate with those whose actions are abhorrent and whose lifestyle is insulting and offensive to that faith.”
“The LGBT militants are not asking to be left alone, they are demanding that we accept the morality of homosexuality and same-sex marriages, and manifest that acceptance, under pain of law and sanctions, in our daily lives. As the Romans demanded of the Christians, the LGBT fanatics want us to burn incense to their gods. The answer is no. If it comes to civil disobedience, so be it.”
“As Aquinas wrote, we do not have to obey immoral or unjust laws. We should defy them. And support the brave people who do.”
In December of 2013 Buchanan praised Russian President Vladimir Putin for his defense of “traditional values,” citing his opposition to such “evil” developments as marriage equality to position Putin as the global leader of the fight “against the militant secularism of a multicultural and transnational elite.”
