American Family Assoc. senior staffer seeks 'Drug Court' for homosexuality

by Jeremy Hooper

Drug Court is a program that allows nonviolent felony drug offenders to go to rehab rather than prison. According to the American Family Association's senior issues analyst for public policy and prominent radio host, this is how we need to handle gay Americans:

Because let's be clear: in Bryan Fischer's world, it's going to be one or the other, punishment or "change." On a recent edition of his radio show wherein he made the same suggestion of rounding up gay Americans and carting them off to rehab camps, Bryan even asked, with a frightening sense of calm," "Do you put them to death?" as if it was just one possibility on his table. I have to believe he sees it the way that he states it.

But let's be clear again: I don't for a second think Bryan has any kind of support behind his downright insane attempts to rid the world of gay people. But that he says this stuff so loudly and frequently yet still retains employment within the conservative movement, and still has guests like Ben Carson and Sen. Rand Paul catering to him, is very much a statement on our eradication and the blind eyes our opposition is willing to turn toward those within their cause who so fully and frequently seek it.
