‘Christians Are The New Blacks’ Says Bryan Fischer

Post image for ‘Christians Are The New Blacks’ Says Bryan Fischer

Bryan Fischer yesterday put on his victim hat one more time to proclaim that “Christians are the news blacks.” Talking about the unanimous decision from the New Mexico state Supreme Court that found a wedding photographer guilty of violating that state’s anti-discrimination laws by refusing to photograph a same-sex committment ceremony, Fischer demanded Christians fight back.

The Court concluded that the photographer, Elane Photography, was subject to the laws under the New Mexico Human Rights Act, “and must serve same-sex couples on the same basis that it serves opposite-sex couples.”

“Therefore, when Elane Photography refused to photograph a same-sex commitment ceremony, it violated the NMHRA in the same way as if it had refused to photograph a wedding between people of different races.”

Which of course set Fischer, the top spokesperson for the American Family Association — a certified hate group — into hysterics.

“So to me this looks like Jim Crow is alive and well, we’ve got Jim Crow laws right back in operation, Christians are the new blacks.”

Of course, Fischer likes to recycle his extremism. In January, he said the exact same thing about a different case.

At least he’s consistent.

How many people have been murdered because of their sexuality? Now, how many Christians have been murdered in the United States, purely because of their Christianity?

Exactly.

What does a Str8, white, Christian male know about discrimination?! Because the law states if you open your doors for public business, you must serve the entire public ,he can equate himself with slavery or the struggles of African Americans and it's the Gays fault?
If I made statements like this, my wife would rush me to the doctor to see if I had a stroke or something! Wave a Bible in the air and you can sound like the biggest nut job on earth.
Bryan comments on everything and they all connect to us. He is really gay!

The man is an idiot.

His God is such an evil, twisted thing, let's be grateful it doesn't exist.

Great, so now where are BLACK Christians in Bryan Fischer's field of reference?

Oh, apparently, they don't exist — only WHITE Christians are first class citizens worthy of Bryan Fischer's attention.

… and GAY Christians — completely off Bryan Fischer's radar?

BTW, why is Bryan Fischer on OUR radar?
