Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver: The Equality Act “Opens Door To Pedophilia”

Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver: The Equality Act “Opens Door To Pedophilia”

Despite the proven fact that the vast majority of pedophiles and child molesters are in fact, heterosexual males. Mat Staver of the anti-gay “Christian” law group the Liberty Counsel has spit out the false propaganda statement that gay men and pedophilia are connected that dates back to the 1960’s to attack the Equality Act that will amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act to provide employment, housing, and public accommodation protections to the GLBT community that everyone else, including religions have in the United States.

“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. We’re going to be talking about it on Faith and Freedom. I’m Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel. Joining me is Holly Meade, the director of communications for Liberty Counsel. 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.” – Liberty Counsel president Mat Staver

Other than the fact that the Equality Act has absolutely NOTHING to do with the age of consent laws in this country. Staver seems to forget that the door to pedophilia is located on the front of the Vatican, and your Catholic church.
