Obligatory Bryan Fischer post for this 48 hours

by Jeremy Hooper

Today the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer does something completely shocking: He makes amends for his years of increasingly aggressive comments about LGBT people, and promises to start working towards bringing people together rather than further ripping this world into a shredded pile of battered and tattered rags.

Just kidding. He actually blames living gays adults for making dead gay kids:

It must be pointed out that homosexual activists are not wholly innocent in these tragedies either. Homosexuals cannot reproduce so they must recruit. Part of the agenda of groups like GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) is to urge students at younger and younger ages to come out and declare a disordered sexual preference. Sexually confused youth are pressured into locking into a sexual identity far before they are mature enough to do so.

We know that suicidal ideation occurs far more frequently among homosexuals than in the normal population, even in Europeans countries where homosexuality has been accepted for decades and critics of homosexuality can be thrown in jail. For adults who know this to urge students to self-identify as homosexual is to condemn them to yield to dark and ultimately tragic impulses. And students just aren’t developed enough to handle it. I’m afraid GLSEN and groups like them may share more of the blame for these suicides than anyone.
...
If we want to see fewer students commit suicide, we want fewer homosexual students. What all truly caring adults will want to do for a student struggling with his sexual identity is to help him resist dangerous sexual impulses, accept his biological identity as either male or female, and help him learn to adjust his psychological identity to his God-given biological one.
