Bryan Fischer, the public face of the certified anti-gay hate group, American Family Association, yesterday on his radio program said that gay marriage and the First Amendment cannot exist together in America. Fischer, who in the past has called gays Nazis, says that homosexuality and religious liberty cannot co-exist, and every win for gay rights is a loss for religious liberty.
Every advance, of the homosexual agenda, comes at the expense of religious liberty. The single greatest threat to religious liberty in America today is the homosexual agenda. We cannot have religious liberty — in fact I would go so far as to say, we cannot have gay marriage and the First Amendment. We can’t have homosexuality and the First Amendment. If homosexuality is embraced and normalized, that’s the end of the First Amendment. It’s gone, it’s out here, shredded beyond recognition, a worthless piece of paper. Now I believe we should be free in America discriminate against homosexual behavior because if we don’t then it will be people of faith who will be discriminated against. It is not possible to have a discrimination-free society. We can’t have it. Either we are going discriminate against homosexual behavior or we are going to discriminate against Christianity.
Apparently, Bryan Fischer cannot imagine a world where every one exists in harmony, nor is he willing to accept the fact that millions upon millions of America’s faithful are fully embracing of same-sex marriage and LGBT civil rights.
It seems that Fischer is rapidly realizing his power to control bigotry and anti-gay hate is diminishing. Americans are, to use Fisher’s word of the week, discriminating, against hate, and that’s what makes him so angry.
