Outrageous Comparison Watch

This from the Washington Post account of the Justice Sunday II rally sponsored by various conservative Christian groups:

"Speakers compared the civil rights movement of the 1960s to demands now by Christian groups for restoration of traditional morality. "It's time we move to the front of the bus and that we take command of the wheel," said William A. Donohue, president of the Catholic League."

Even putting aside the outrageous comparison of Christians to blacks in the Jim Crow South, Rosa Parks never demanded that she should drive the bus.
