Britain risks becoming a totalitarian state as a result of gay marriage and could go the way of Nazi Germany, Tory opponents of the government's plans have heard.

Addressing an anti-gay marriage rally in Birmingham Town Hall on the fringes of the Tory Party conference on Monday, the former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey said Christians had so far been "too timid" in their opposition to the government's plans.

He also warned that those of faith could even begin to experience the persecution endured by the Jews in Nazi Germany if they dared to speak out if same-sex marriage laws were passed.

"Remember that the Jews in Nazi Germany, what started it against them was when they were called names, that was the first stage towards that totalitarian state," he said.

He added: "It's part of a slippery slope where the unintended consequences could be shocking."

Lord Carey said politicians were trying to "plunder" the institution of marriage. "It's like annexing what was regarded as specific to make and female relationships."

He added: "Same sex relationships are not the same as heterosexual relationships and should not be put on the same level."

Along with the other speakers including former shadow home secretary Ann Widdecombe and current backbench Tory MP David Burrows, Lord Carey took exception to the 'Coalition4Marriage' campaign being called "bigots".

Old men love to voice grouchy, and frequently senseless, observations. The next subject he railed about was probably kids on the front lawn.

That has to be the best slipperly slope argument I've ever seen.

"YOU CALLED ME A MEAN NAME. THEREFORE, NAZIS"

Ugh, Anne Widdicombe. We hates it forever.

How you can convert from Anglicanism to Catholicism over an unrelated issue is beyond me. Oh, now that women are allowed to be priests you've suddenly changed your mind about the miracle of transubstantiation, the existence of Limbo and the proper place of idols in Christian worship?

How convenient. It's not like changing the colour of your tie you know, swapping belief systems has profound implications beyond your position on what genitals the one in front with the gold hat should have.

No it doesn't, no it isn't and they are stupid. Or evil. Or maybe both.

I've heard that Britain risks becoming a totalitarian state, but for different reasons.

[Britain risks becoming a totalitarian state as a result of gay marriage and could go the way of Nazi Germany]

Only with the sheer stupidity that comes with such a religiously conservative mind could you make up such a premise. This is probably second place to that Muslim who made the claim that abolishing slavery dehumanizes humanity.

["Remember that the Jews in Nazi Germany, what started it against them was when they were called names"]

You mean like fag, dyke, things of that nature?

["It's like annexing what was regarded as specific to make and female relationships."]

Yep, after we recently just annexed what was supposedly for only two of the same race.


Go get some help. Your extreme persecution complex is far more offensive to any rationally minded person than marriage 'redefinition' could ever be.

When will these nimrods get it in their thick skulls that NAZI GERMANY SENT HOMOSEXUALS TO FREAKIN' DEATH CAMPS?!!!

Anyone who compares the experience of modern day Christians to Jews in the Holocaust has no credibility.

It becomes the risk of becoming the very regime that prosecuted homosexuals. Right.
