AFA's Bryan Fischer Names NJ Governor Chris Christie First Member of 'American Association of Religious Bigots' (AARB)
Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association has come up with a new way to play up the false meme of Christian victimization so popular with anti-gay hate groups these days.
He's launching "the American Association of Religious Bigots, the AARB for short," Right Wing Watch reports:
The AARB will consist of individuals and groups in America who demonstrate that they are Christophobic bigots and hatemongers by their opposition to the free exercise of religion, speech, press or association for followers of Christianity, a religion the Founders were specifically protecting by the First Amendment.
Fischer's inaugural attacker of Christians is NJ Governor Chris Christie for saying he found Union High school teacher Viki Knox's anti-gay Facebook remarks "disturbing". Writes Fischer:
Our charter member is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who yesterday publicly criticized a New Jersey teacher who criticized her public school’s promotion of sexually aberrant behavior. She exercised both her freedom of religion and speech by posting her comments on her own Facebook page.
This Christian teacher expressed her opposition to the school’s celebration of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender history by correctly labeling such behaviors as “perverted.” That may sound harsh, but consider the dictionary definition of “perverted:” “Characterized by sexually abnormal and unacceptable practices or tendencies.” So her assessment is not harsh, it’s just true.
No doubt Fischer saw NOM's new Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance and figured he would try the same thing. Those poor oppressed Christianists.
