Video: Bryan Fischer pretends fringe, far-right American College of Pediatricians is non-biased house of science

by Jeremy Hooper

The American College of Pediatricians is a tiny (between 60–200 members), ideologically-driven splinter organization that was created by the far-right and given a purposely innocuous name for the sole purpose of confusing the credible data put out by the 60,000+ member American Academy of Pediatrics. This organization, which aggressively promotes "ex-gay" junk science, is the same American College of Pediatricians that National Institute of Health Director Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D smacked down after he discovered that they were twisting his work. This organization has zero credibility. Less than zero, in fact, considering how far they've taken their lies and how much they've been called out by actual scientists.

And this is how the far-right uses it. Listen is as Bryan Fischer, the American Family Association's guiding voice, tells his listeners that this organization is a credible body of doctors who simply have a "scientific" viewpoint on gay parenting. In fact, he uses them for cover of his personal, oft repeated view that same-sex parenting is "child abuse":

Liar.
