Texas GOP Lawmaker: Secularism Is Like Nazi ‘Bullet Through The Throat’

Texas state Sen. Charles Perry (R) on Tuesday compared the lack of religious influence in U.S. government to the Holocaust during a speech at his swearing-in ceremony.

“There were 10,000 people that were paraded into a medical office under the guise of a physical. As they stood with their back against the wall, they were executed with a bullet through the throat. Before they left, 10,000 people met their fate that way,” he said, recalling a recent trip to a former German concentration camp, according to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.

“Is it not the same than when our government continues to perpetuate laws that lead citizens away from God?” Perry then asked. “The only difference is that the fraud of the Germans was more immediate and whereas the fraud of today’s government will not be exposed until the final days and will have eternal-lasting effects.”

Perry said that he believes God and religion have a place in government and that there is a “spiritual battle for the spirit of this nation and the soul of its people.”

He added that he will focus on abortion and same-sex marriage while in office.

“Roe v. Wade condemned 55 million innocent and defenseless souls that cried out for righteousness from a God who is just — we will answer for that as a nation,” Perry said.
