The director of issues analysis of the fundamentalist American Family Association (AFA) on Thursday warned that “homofascists” were going to make anti-LGBT Christians wear badges like Jews had to wear during the Holocaust in Nazi Germany.

During his Focal Point radio show, AFA’s Bryan Fischer explained that he was outraged that Dr. Ben Carson decided to drop out as commencement speaker at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine after his comments linking same sex marriage to bestiality.

“If you don’t believe in sodomy-based marriage, you’re not prepared to endorse and sanction sodomy-based marriage, you have no place in this institution,” Fischer complained. “So we’re getting to the point — I don’t know what the emblem would be — remember when the Jews in Nazi Germany, they had to wear a yellow Star of David on their sleeve? I mean, we’re getting to the point now, that’s what they’re going to make us do.”

“I don’t know what the symbol would be, I’d have to think about that,” he continued. “We’re getting to the point where these homofascists are going to force us to wear on our sleeves some kind of identifying marker so people will know who the racists and the homophobes and the bigots are, and can stay away from them.”

In fact, men arrested for homosexuality in Nazi Germany were forced to wear inverted pink triangles as identifying badges in labor and concentration camps.

“As part of the Nazis’ attempt to purify German society and propagate an ‘Aryan master race,’ they condemned homosexuals as ‘socially aberrant,’” according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. “Many survivors have testified that men with pink triangles were often treated particularly severely by guards and inmates alike because of widespread biases against homosexuals.”
