Bryan Fischer's latest 'logic': LGBT nondiscrimination = 'secular theocracy'

by Jeremy Hooper

Bryan Fischer just can't escape religious terminology:

"Dogma"? "Theocracy"? "Heretic"? "The Inquisition"?

Bryan uses the allusions (/illusions) because he and his movement have wrapped their entire viewpoint in the shroud of the New Testament. He cannot (or will not) accept that those of us who argue for nondiscrimination laws that prevent business owners from turning away gay customers at whim and will are actually operating on the basis of civil (/secular) law, independent of our personal faith.

Whether or not that is the viewpoint we, the citizens of a church/state-separated nation, must use when considering civil law is not up for debate.
