Wow. Just wow. I knew Bryan J. Fischer is a total nutjob, but this is really over the top.
Fischer the head of the ironically named "American Family Association" took to Twitter to endorse kidnapping the children of same-sex couples:
Head of Underground Railroad to deliver innocent children from same-sex households goes on trial. chicagotribune.com/news/sns-rt-us…— Bryan Fischer (@BryanJFischer) August 8, 2012
Why we need an Underground Railroad to deliver innocent children from same-sex households: thepublicdiscourse.com/2012/08/6065— Bryan Fischer (@BryanJFischer) August 8, 2012
The background is Fischer is referencing a trial that is underway where a pastor faces charges of being an accomplice to kidnapping. Kenneth L. Miller, 46, the leader of a Beachy Amish Mennonite church in Stuarts Draft, Virginia, stands accused of helping spirit Lisa Miller and her daughter to Nicaragua. Miller fled the country rather than
share surrender custody of her daughter with Janet Jenkins, a woman she had shared a civil union partnership with in Vermont before undergoing a evangelical Christian conversion. Miller's case has become a cause célèbre in American Christian Evangelical circles.
These American theocrats, the Christian Taliban are always telling us God's law is supreme over man's, and here were have it again.
Janet Jenkins sought and legally obtained
a visitation order full legal custody of the daughter through the Vermont court system. Bryan Fischer is declaring war not only on the parental rights of LGBT Americans, but on the fundamental system of American jurisprudence. He is essentially saying, "If you don't like the answer the court gives you, it's okay to go rogue."
Update: thanks to Rich M for reminding us American Family Association is also among the Southern Poverty Law Center designated hate groups Chick-Fil-A donates money to. They even organized a Buycott on Chick-Fil-A's behalf.
