Bryan Fischer yesterday falsely stated that gay men abuse children ten times more than straight men do, and the Boy Scouts dropping their ban on gay scouts and leaders amounts to saying to pedophiles, “Y’all come!” Yesterday, the Boy Scouts of America announced they were considering dropping their national ban on gay scouts and leaders, and leaving decisions on discrimination to local troops.
Bryan Fischer is the public face of the certified anti-gay hate group, American Family Association. Since the BSA made their announcement, he has gone ballistic, seeing yet another issue he can lie to the American people about.
The fact is that gay men are no more likely than straight men to be child molesters, and there already are many gay people in Scouting.
“To me it’s just suicidal, they are finished, they are done,” Fischer says. “There is not one loving father in America that ever, ever, ever ought to entrust his son to the Boy Scouts of America.”
Fischer, in this video, via Right Wing Watch, calls the decision by the Scouts, “insanity” that will lead to gays “bunking down with your kid at jamboree.”
