Bryan Fischer ready to lead modern marriage movement; we second the NOMination

by Jeremy Hooper

The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer, defiant as always:

"This battle is not over, not by a long shot, and will not ever be as long as we defenders of natural marriage have breath left in our bodies.

We will fight to the last ditch, to the last barricade, on the last hill, to defend the institution that is the cornerstone of a healthy society. We will resist to the last ditch, the last barricade, the last hill, the effort to normalize sexual deviancy in our culture. To borrow a phrase from John Paul Jones, “We have yet begun to fight.”

Get used to it. We’re not going anywhere
."
Bryan Fischer: USA Today: Yes, we will fight to the last ditch [AFA]

So congratulations, National Organization For Marriage and entirety of "pro-marriage" movement: You all are getting an unshakable assist from the guy who said "Homosexuals in the military gave us...six million dead Jews." The guy who's said "homosexuals should be disqualified from public office," has called on Christian conservatives to breed gays and progressives out of existence, has called gay sex a "form of domestic terrorism," who's said only gays were savage enough for Hitler, has compared gays to heroin abusers, has directly compared laws against gay soldiers to those that apply to bank robbers, who once invoked a Biblical story about stabbing "sexually immoral" people with spears, saying we need this kind of action in modern day, who has spoken out against gays serving as public school teachers, has questioned why Medals of Honor are given to people who save lives (rather than take lives), who says that open service will "assign the United States to the scrap heap of history," who recently commiserated with Bradlee 'Executing homosexuals is moral' Dean, and who has blamed gay activists for dead gay kids, saying that: "If we want to see fewer students commit suicide, we want fewer homosexual students." The guy who said the only acceptable "culture war" truce would have gays giving up their demand for equality. The guy who painted Native Americans as cursed because they "cling to the darkness of indigenous superstition." The guy who Warren Throckmorton aptly noted is "to the right of Jerry Falwell" on some LGBT issues. The guy whose words pretty much single-handedly landed the American Family Association on the Southern Poverty Law Center's hate groups list.

We agree the "battle" is not over, and probably even far from it. Where we differ from Mr. Fischer is on the point of who actually benefits from his staunch advocacy:
