AFA's Fischer: Criticism of Uganda's 'jail the gays' law is also a modern version of Jim Crow

by Jeremy Hooper

It's not just the idea that anti-gay Christians must serve gay people that constitutes a new form of Jim Crow. No, no—according to this AFA senior staffer, criticizing Uganda's shocking law that literally imprisons gay people is also a modern equivalent of the segregated south:

"On an international level, the United States is doing to Uganda what the NFL is trying to do to Arizona, and if anything it’s more insidious because they are doing it to a nation of black people. Our own government is seeking to ostracize an entire nation of blacks, segregating it from the nations of the world, simply because that nation of blacks wants to protect the health of its own people from the ravages of disease caused by promiscuous homosexual behavior.

So the NFL is saying to Arizona, and President Obama is saying to Uganda, 'If you support religious liberty or natural marriage, you can’t sit at our lunch counter.'

Sounds a whole lot like Jim Crow to me
."

American Family Association Sr. Analyst Bryan Fischer
