One of the NC Douchebags who Tried to Reverse Marriage Equality Thinks Lincoln Was a "Tyrant" Comparable to Hitler

Larry G. Pittman
There is more to Larry G. Pittman than just trying to ban same-sex marriage. On Wednesday I wrote about the three North Carolina GOPer ignoramuses (including Pittman) who were trying to reverse marriage equality. That measure was filed but died because even in North Carolina there are Republicans with sufficient intellect and sanity to realize that Supreme Court rulings are not optional.

Pittman decided to respond people who are critical of the marriage bill on Facebook:
And if Hitler had won, should the world just get over it?

Lincoln was the same sort if [sic] tyrant, and personally responsible for the deaths of over 800,000 Americans in a war that was unnecessary and unconstitutional.
Presumably Mr. Pittman refers to our civil war as “The Northern War of Aggression.”

Pittman claims to be a pastor. Apparently a family member (wife or daughter) is on his North Carolina House payroll as his legislative assistant. I find it astonishing that someone so ignorant of US constitutional law would deem Abraham Lincoln's actions unconstitutional.

I emailed Pittman (and his partners in crime as well) asking him if he was aware of the underlying Supreme Court cases that made his bill DOA. The two cases are Cooper v. Aaron and Marbury v. Madison. Pittman never responded. I thought about another email as well — which I am sure is a waste of time. Were that not the case I would love to get a straight answer to a simple question: What harm has come to you, or anyone else, as a result of same-sex marriage?
