Bryan Fischer: Sen Hatch (R-UT) supporting ENDA because he wants to bring back polygamy

by Jeremy Hooper

Is a Mormon Republican supporting employment nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people because he hopes LGBT rights will help him bring back polygamy? The American Family Association's most visible face and vocal spokesman is just throwing it out there:

So many assumptions. First, the idea that Sen. Hatch, because he's a Mormon, must want polygamy. Then there's the causally accepted notion that LGBT rights is an automatic step forward for polyamorous relationships. Then, even if you accepted those ridiculous premises, there's the bizarre idea that protecting LGBT people from unfair employment practices is somehow related to marriage/relationships. Pound for pound, this might just be Bryan Fischer's most multi-faceted logic-leap yet, born from Bryan's years of accepting false realities as the gospel and demonizing anyone who doesn't agree with him as a bad character worthy of rhetorical attack.

What a way to make a living!
