Fischer: Absolutely No Reason Why Homosexuality Cannot Be Criminalized

Post image for Fischer: Absolutely No Reason Why Homosexuality Cannot Be Criminalized

Bryan Fischer, the public face of the certified hate group American Family Association, on his radio program yesterday called for the re-criminalization of homosexuality in every state, saying that every state in the union had sodomy laws on the books decades ago.

“Both of the cases that went to the United States Supreme Court that dealt with the issue of whether states should criminalize sodomy, and of course they still ought to be able to do it, every state in the union criminalized sodomy until 1962 and then forty nine states until 1972, then they began to fall like dominoes. But by the time of the founding until the late 20th Century, homosexual activity was a felony offense in the United States of America, there is no reason why it cannot be a criminal offense once again, absolutely none.”

Bryan Tashman at Right Wing Watch, who provided the transcript and video, writes,

“In 2003, the Supreme Court’s decision in Lawrence v. Texas overturned anti-sodomy laws in the fourteen states that had them on the books and reversed the Supreme Court’s prior decision Bowers v. Hardwick. Fischer’s opinion should come as no surprise as the AFA filed an amicus brief in support of Texas’s anti-sodomy law and condemned the court’s decision, calling the decision tantamount to ‘tyranny’.”

Last week, Fischer wrote,

“I’ve said it before, and I will say it again, until everyone in the United States agrees with me. America must choose between homosexuality and religious liberty, because we cannot have both. America must choose between homosexuality and freedom of speech, because we cannot have both. America must choose between homosexuality and freedom, because we cannot have both.”

The American Family Association (AFA) was identified as a certified anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the folks who brought down the KKK. They AFA is also the group that Rick Perry chose to co-host and to finance his Christian-only prayer rally in Texas earlier this month.

For those unfamiliar with the hate group leader, Fischer recently claimed that criticism of Marcus and Michele Bachmann over the practice of “ex-​gay therapy” is both religious bigotry and a hate crime, and the Norway terrorist would have made a good Muslim.

Fischer recently said, “we cannot have the homosexual agenda and liberty. Those two things are incompatible,” and, “Hitler Was A Homosexual”.

For those of you who may have forgotten, here are a few of Fischer’s other lies:

Spokesbigot for the Hate Group AFA needs to hop in a time machine and go back to 1830 where he belongs. Too bad we won that round at SCOTUS Bryan back in 1996. You don't get to tell religion what to do either, many churches bless same sex unions now. Get over your irrational hatred or get run over by the future.
