Bryan Fischer on BBC: There's no right to be gay

by Jeremy Hooper

Last night, Britons got a glimpse of how extreme and overreaching the American resistance to marriage equality truly is:

Screen Shot 2013-03-27 At 11.01.07 AmAFA's BRYAN FISCHER: There is no right to engage in homosexual behavior. In the United States, it was a felony offense for the first two hundred and fifty-five years of our existence as a nation, everywhere. There simply is no constitutional, legal, or moral right to engage in homosexual behavior

BBC NEWS PRESENTER : I note there, Mr, Fischer, that you actually didn't answer the question—you answered a different question. I was asking you whether you reserve the right to judge gay people and find them to be less than heterosexual people.

FISCHER: No, I answered your question Peter. I said that society should not sanction homosexual behavior. It should not be the basis of special rights; it should not be the basis for marriage, given the health risks associated with homosexual conduct.

Keep talking, Bryan. The world is listening to your attempts to recriminalize gay people. Your words come at the expense of your own team's carefully crafted strategy. So yay.
