Gays In NFL Would Cause Grenade-Like Explosion’ And ‘Sexual Tension’ Says Fischer

Bryan Fischer says the NFL won’t allow gay players in professional football because they would cause a “grenade-like explosion,” “sexual tension,” and affect “unit cohesion.” Fischer is using many of the debunked arguments against allowing openly-gay service members in the U.S. military, which has experienced almost zero issues since Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) was repealed over a year ago.

Fischer, the director of issues analysis for the certified anti-gay hate group American Family Association, also claimed that straight players will stay away from any team that recruits gay players: “they won’t be able to complete a roster.”

Of course, Fischer is often wrong about issues regarding the LGBT community. In 2011 he claimed once DADT is repealed, neither gays nor straights will sign up for military service, which will force a nationwide draft in America, and then homosexual soldiers will work to get DADT reinstated, “so they can get their get of out jail free card.

Also in 2011, Fischer wrongly claimed that Christian U.S. military officers were about to become victims of “systematic hate crimes” — “one hate crime after another” — perpetrated by the “homosexual lobby” once Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was repealed. Fischer falsely stated that “homosexuals” will commit “virtual genocide” of U.S. military officers “who have deeply-held religious convictions about the acceptability of homosexual behavior.”

And, also in 2011, Fischer called for the re-criminalization of homosexuality in every state, saying “there is no reason why it cannot be a criminal offense once again, absolutely none.”

Does he not know that there are already plenty of gays and lesbians in professional sports? The world hasn't stopped or exploded yet. The only difference is that they are not "out", but you can be quite sure they are there.

Fischer's claim that "the NFL won’t allow gay players in professional football" is contradicted by the recent NFL statement, "any team or employee that inquires about impermissible subjects or makes an employment decision based on such factors is subject to league discipline."
