Bryan Fischer tired of getting blistered; we're tired of him attributing every societal blister to our bedrooms

by Jeremy Hooper

And now this lesson on civil discourse from a man whose all but obliterated the concept:


[AFA]
***

*The "civil" things Bryan Fischer considers to be true: He's the guy who said "Homosexuals in the military gave us...six million dead Jews." He's the guy who's said "homosexuals should be disqualified from public office," who 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. Bryan's words pretty much single-handedly landed the American Family Association on the Southern Poverty Law Center's hate groups list.
