Sometimes I think Bryan Fischer gets up in the morning, looks himself in the mirror, and says, "How can I be more outrageously bigoted today than I was yesterday?" This man is one of the most virulently homophobic people on the planet, as he affirms every time he spews his hate on his AFA radio program. The New Civil Rights Movement sums up his history of assholery quite succinctly, in case you're fortunate enough to not be familiar with Fischer.

In the past, Fischer has said gays are Nazis, suggested that millions of Americans contracted HIV/​AIDS because of the existence on Congressman Barney Frank, gays are not born gay, the Tea Party ended slavery in America, gays are a threat to national security, public health, and that traditional marriage is necessary for US survival.

Fischer has also claimed the same hate, vitriol, and anti-​Christ spirit is at work in Islam and in the “homosexual agenda,” that Chaz Bono, “is a surgically-​mutilated female,” and has said, “Let’s have a state law that provides some kind of fine for anyone who has unprotected homosexual sex.”

He’s called for the re-​criminalization of homosexuality in every state, said homosexuality “is a death sentence, it’s not a lifestyle, it’s a death style,” and claimed California is going to have a hard time fulfilling SB 48 because “by definition,” gays cannot be role models.

-deep breaths- Oh, but wait, that's not all.
Fischer tweeted that the Norway terrorist would have made a good Muslim but a bad Christian, said, “Hitler hiomself was a homosexual,” and “we cannot have the homosexual agenda and liberty. Those two things are incompatible.”

Bryan Fischer claimed criticism of and Marcus and Michele Bachmann over the practice of “ex-​gay therapy” is both religious bigotry and a hate crime, he’s said, “homosexual bigots commit hate crimes,” and “Christophobic gay activists” want to “continue a campaign of threats, harassment….”

It's pretty goddamn hard to top all of that. But he just might have done it. Follow me below the fold.

Fischer starts off in this segment arguing that same-sex couples can't form lasting relationships. Say what? I guess a lot of gay and lesbian couples are going to be quite surprised by this news. Now, I'm sure Fischer doesn't exactly have a lot of gay friends, but it's difficult to believe even he is stupid enough to believe that. That's not ignorance--it's a malicious, bold-faced lie. I know it's difficult for fundies who get their gay sex in restroom stalls to understand, but we gays do form wonderful relationships.

Then, he goes on to talk about gay sex, blah blah blah immoral, blah blah blah unnatural, blah blah blah I'm sexually repressed, blah blah blah can't conceive children. Then he makes the leap, apparently based on the irresponsible, unethical, methodologically flawed, and thoroughly debunked study that claims children of gay parents are worse off, that gays shouldn't adopt. But that wasn't enough. Not only should they not adopt, but allowing them to adopt is sexual abuse. Seriously. Of all the monstrous, hideous, loathsome things that have oozed out of Bryan Fischer's hate-hole, this has the be among the worst, if not the worst.


Here's the transcript if you can't possibly bring yourself to watch the video.

Companionship is just not one of the purposes that homosexuals can fulfill in marriage, they don’t know anything about the staining a lasting relationship, they can’t do it. There’s so much pathology associated with homosexual behavior that they’re not able to pull that off. The sex that’s involved in homosexual behavior, it’s unnatural, it is immoral, and it is unhealthy. We don’t need to belabor that but we know the health risks involved in homosexual behavior. We know that it puts the human body to uses for which it was not designed.

Whether you believe in evolution or you believe in creation we can all say, ‘look the human body was not designed to be used that way it just wasn’t. I would suggest to you that people who believe in evolution ought to be more opposed to the normalization of homosexuality that evangelicals because evolution is supposed to be all about propagation of the species. Can’t happen when two members of the same sex come together, it’s impossible to procreate to conceive children.

Bottom line, ladies and gentlemen, to put kids in this environment it’s a form of sexual abuse all its own. To adopt kids into a same-sex environment is a form of child abuse.

Yep. Putting children in loving homes with responsible adults is just like "child abuse" in Fischer's mind.

Words fail to describe just how big a piece of shit this guy is.

I might be a little consoled if Fischer was just a lone wingnut like Bill Donohue. Unfortunately, though, that's not quite the case.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
