Bryan Fischer's 'Christian' radio show: Come for the GOP candidates, stay for the near-guaranteed gay/Muslim condemnations

by Jeremy Hooper

American Family Radio host Frank Turek chats with our ol' pal Bryan:

Gays and "radical Muslims": "both hate Western civilization, both hate Judeo-Christian
natural law values that our Constitution and particularly our
Declaration of Independence were founded on.
"

[Right Wing Watch]

On "The Real Housewives," it's wine. On competition shows, it's suspenseful elimination announcement. And for far-right evangelical radio personalities, it's the monolithic and reductive assessment of anyone they know they can use as a fearful tool.

Many shows use reliable crutches to heighten drama. But there's no editing more careless than the far-right's constant cutting of anyone who doesn't fit the desired script!

*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 encourages an "ex-gay" mother to ignore court orders that she finds Biblically unfair (Just like Rosa Parks, dont cha know?). 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.
