The lam of God: Ignoring court orders like Jesus (& Rosa Parks?!) would do

by Jeremy Hooper

And now here's the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer on why "ex-gay" Lisa Miller was right to flout the law so as to keep her biological daughter from her former lesbian partner (who has been awarded custody):

"Lisa did what any good mother would do when her child was being systematically and psychologically abused by a total stranger: she refused to subject her child to that continued abuse."
...
"Rosa Parks gained civil rights immortality because she refused an order to obey an unjust law. If there was ever a contemporary case in which civil disobedience is justified, the Lisa Miller case is it. May God have mercy on Lisa Miller, her daughter Isabella, and Pastor Timothy Miller. And may God, the Judge of the living and the dead, bring the guilty before his bar of pure and uncompromising justice. " [AFA]

So to recap: Lisa should just ignore court decisions that she finds inconvenient; a lesbian partner who Miller even hit up for child support is now a "total stranger"; a custody arrangement is "child abuse"; court orders that support joint parenting are as offensive as racial discrimination; and God should strike vengeance on "the guilty."

But hey, it's not like major GOP Congress members and presidential candidates are cozying up to this Fischer guy. Oh wait a minute...

*REMINDER: This is the same Bryan Fischer who's 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 innately cursed because they "cling to the darkness of indigenous superstition". The guy who conservative Christian 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.
