AFA's Bryan Fischer Wants Homosexuality Recriminalized Again in all 50 States: VIDEO


American Family Association radio host Bryan Fischer told listeners on his show yesterday that he sees no impediment to recriminalizing homosexuality in all 50 states again, Right Wing Watch reports.

Said the hate group leader:

Both of the cases that went to the United States Supreme Court that dealt with the issue of whether states should criminalize sodomy, and of course they still ought to be able to do it, every state in the union criminalized sodomy until 1962 and then forty nine states until 1972, then they began to fall like dominoes. But by the time of the founding until the late 20th Century, homosexual activity was a felony offense in the United States of America, there is no reason why it cannot be a criminal offense once again, absolutely none.

  1. Seriously? Why is this guy so obsessed with how people are f-ing?

  2. I almost wish there was such a thing as hell. Almost.

  3. LGBTers are a market segment. In a million years Fischer couldn't get retailers to give up an identifiable target audience. He's high if he thinks there's even a hint of a chance of success.

  4. Instead of re-criminalizing homosexuality, why not criminalize ignorance, intolerance, hate and bigotry?

    If there is a Heaven or a Hell, people like Fischer are in for an incredibly rude awakening one of these days.

  5. This type of hypocrite wants no governmental intervention in financial matters, social welfare, use of weapons, support of the arts, business regulation and almost every other field of human existence - except what you do in your bedroom.

    Your sex life must be regulated by the government - all of a sudden the government is good and needs to be more powerful so it can watch you have sex in case you need to be punished!

  6. Rich,

    Why not just criminalize Christianity and spare us the trouble? It's okay to be hateful and bigoted towards the hateful and bigoted. That sort of hate and bigotry should not only NOT be banned, but encouraged and enshrined into law.

  7. any politician that aligns themselves with this man is petty much aligning themselves with the ideologies of Nazi Germany.

  8. I'm not a professional, but I think he is mentally ill.

    Religion is a magnet for the mentally ill.

  9. It's almost as if we are headed into another civil war in this country, or mass civil protests at least. Same lines, the South (Tea Party, neocons, religious right) against the North (Moderates, normal people). Mark my word, if by some wild chance someone like Bachmann wins the Presidency, which would mean the Senate would go to the Republican's again...and some of this stuff starts to get implemented...there will be huge civil issues that make the Tea Party look like an actual tea party.

  10. I'm with Rich.

  11. Seriously, are they trying to bring back the witch hunts to rile up their base? They try to hide their utter lack of humanity behind their supposed Christianity. Makes me sick.

  12. First of all, sodomy was not a felony in all states. In many states, the crimes against nature was a misdemeanor. Secondly, there is a very good reason why it cannot be a crime again. Crimes outlawing consensual gay sex have been deemed unconstitutional. So unless there is a Constitutional amendment, which is not going to happen, you can huff and puff as much as you want, you hateful demented bigot, and work yourself up into a little brown puddle of Santorum. As good as you? Hell, no! We are much better.

  13. Interesting evolution of the anti gay argument. For years they've held that interventionist judges are pushing gay rights despite overwhelming opposition of legislatures and voters. Now that lots of legislatures are passing gay rights legislation and voters are quickly moving in the same direction, that argument will soon be a dead end. So instead it's back to the founding fathers, and since there were no gay rights 200 years ago, there shouldn't be any now. Really, if we were to adopt that as a reference point, 99 percent of all our laws could be repealed, and you wouldn't even need a legislature anymore since all the laws that mattered were apparently passed in the eighteenth century.

  14. @Candide: You seem to be under the impression that Dominionists like Fischer actually care about the Constitution.

  15. Republicans in Texas and Wyoming have fought hard to keep gay-targeted sodomy laws on the books. There must be a reason for this.

    Lawrence v. TX was decided by a 6-3 majority. If that case were heard today, we'd most likely have a 5-4 majority. But if we lose Ginsberg or Kennedy and a Republican President replaces that justice with someone like Alito, we're looking at the losing end of a 5-4 decision.

    There is an ugly form of anti-gay populism that has taken over the Republican Party. It makes the unthinkable frighteningly thinkable.

  16. Making sodomy illegal would put most heterosexuals in jail.

  17. And women couldn't vote, and black people were property, and on and on and on....

    This man is quite simply mentally ill. He comes off as a paranoid schizophrenic. And any rational human being simply rolls their eyes at him. He's close to being on the corner with a "God Hates Fags" scrawled on a cardboard box, screaming at cars.

    Even the rightwingers have to be humiliated by him because he becomes their face, and believe me, they don't see themselves as this guy...yet he has the microphone.

  18. I'd prefer we outlaw hate speech like Canada, Britain and others. Incitement to violence is the only thing religion is good for and I hope they all die killing each other. Good riddance.

  19. Now we just need that stupid people criminalization.

  20. No reason at all, Bryan? Forgot about common decency and the Bill of Rights, I guess.

  21. What this closet case is saying is "I can't stop thinking about gay sex so I need the law to remove temptation and scare me straight."

  22. How do people such as this function in life?

  25. I like how you only have to let crazy, evil people talk to know that they're crazy... and evil.
