Gee, Bryan, can't understand why federal courts are rejecting you gay = incest view

by Jeremy Hooper

Court after court continues to rule in favor of equality. They are all wrong, says in-no-way-legally-trained American Family Association analyst Bryan Fischer. And these judges are wrong, naturally, because gay people are more similar to pedophiles and people who sleep with goats than they are to heterosexuals.

Move over, Jeffrey Toobin:

So when it comes to the “right” of homosexuals to marry each other (there never can be a “right” to same sex marriage since it is impossible for there to be moral or constitutional “right” to engage in sexually deviant behavior), the only possible question for a federal court would be whether a state’s marriage law is the same for everybody. If it is, the discussion is over.

If the right to marry is reserved under a state’s constitution for individuals of opposite genders, and that policy is applied equally, especially with regard to race (given the historical context of the 14th Amendment) then there is simply no constitutional violation. Everyone is equal before the law. If the same law applies to every citizen in the state, then justice is being served.

Since homosexuals already possess full marriage equality, what they want is not equal rights but special rights, “rights” granted on the basis of sexual deviancy. They want special treatment that is not granted to would-be polygamists, pedophiles, and practitioners of incest and bestiality.

The 14th Amendment doesn’t guarantee anybody special rights, it guarantees equal rights. Homosexual activists have no case and no constitutional right even to be in federal court. The sooner federal appeals courts recognize that the better.
Bryan Fischer: State marriage amendments should not even be in federal court, period [AFA]

If only bombastic commentary, self-assuredness, and open hostility were binding legal precedents, Bryan would be on to something. But since it's not, his animus will only help us win the wins we're already winning anyway.
