Matt Barber of the Christian conservative group Liberty Counsel has described Harvey Milk as an “evil man.”

The USPS announced last week that Milk's legacy will be commemorated on a 2014 U.S. postage stamp. Milk was the first openly gay elected official of a major U.S. city. However, a year after his 1977 election to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, he was murdered by Dan White, a former supervisor.

Milk is the first openly gay politician to receive such an honor.

Barber told OneNewsNow that honoring Milk's legacy “shows us how we have entered an era where we call evil good and good evil.”

“Harvey Milk was demonstrably, categorically an evil man based on his rape of teenage boys,” Barber said. “And the fact that our U.S. government would be commemorating and recognizing him as some kind of hero really just boggles the mind.”
