AFA's Bryan Fischer Says Gays are Like Miami's Face-Eating Cannibal and Deserve Discrimination: VIDEO


American Family Association mouthpiece Bryan Fischer wants conservatives to "reclaim" the term "discrimination", riffing on a piece he wrote last week, arguing they should "dust it off, and use it without apology," Right Wing Watch reports.

In the piece, Fischer wrote:

Public policy is about discriminating against behaviors that are socially destructive and corrosive to the social fabric. So, we rightly discriminate against people who rip off convenience stores, burgle houses, drive while drunk, eat the faces off homeless people, gun down servicemen on military bases, embezzle funds from employers or clients, or beat their wives...

...We discriminate against adults, even priests, who have sex with children. We discriminate against teachers who have affairs with students. We discriminate against teachers who moonlight in the porn industry. We discriminate against students who engage in sexting. We discriminate against rapists. We discriminate against those who expose sexual partners unknowingly to the AIDS virus. We discriminate against those adults who commit statutory rape against minors. We discriminate against homosexuals and prostitutes by refusing to allow them to give blood.

The point is this: we discriminate against sexually immoral and inappropriate behavior all the time, and homosexual behavior is sexually immoral and inappropriate.

Watch him riff on that, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. monsters like this man are the reason for youth suicides. i know many were champing at the bit over Dharun Ravi, but the reality is that ravi's words and actions would have meant NOTHING in a country and culture that wasn't already polluted with anti-gay prejudice, thanks to this bigot and the many GOP talking-heads who drum up anti-gay bigotry to win the votes of America's Low-Thinkers.

  2. Nevermind that the face-eating cannibal was a Christian who had just been to a bible study group beforehand.

  3. The cannibal's victim was a schoolfriend of mine.

  4. @LittleKiwi, well put. The saddest thing is he has followers and listeners.

  6. ...we rightly discriminate against people who:

    rip off convenience stores -> Harms another person.

    burgle houses -> Harms another person.

    drive while drunk-> Harms another person.

    eat the faces off homeless people -> Harms another person.

    gun down servicemen on military bases -> Harms another person.

    embezzle funds from employers or clients -> Harms another person.

    or beat their wives... -> Harms another person.

    adults, even priests, who have sex with children. -> Harms another person. (And priests just get shuffled around by church hierarchy.)

    teachers who have affairs with students. -> Harms another person.

    teachers who moonlight in the porn industry. -> We shouldn't because they're not harming anybody.

    students who engage in sexting. -> We shouldn't because they're not harming anybody, unless the sexts are unwanted.

    rapists -> Harms another person.

    those who expose sexual partners unknowingly to the AIDS virus. -> Harms another person.

    adults who commit statutory rape against minors. -> Harms another person.

    We discriminate against homosexuals and prostitutes by refusing to allow them to give blood. -> Being gay and being a prostitute are two different things. Even so, if the prostitute is having safe sex with their clientele and making sure they get tested regularly, I'm not going to have an issue with them giving blood. And for being gay, that harms no one as well, so discrimination is unjust.

  7. You never need to justify discrimination against the individuals Fisher mentioned.

    You never need to say, "well, a murderer is like a molester" or "a thief is like an adulterer" or "a guy that chews off another guy's face is like an arsonist." Whenever bigots like Fisher attempt to explain why the world should discriminate against us, they have to use a comparison.

    If LGBT equality were so bad, people would know why. We wouldn't need bigots like Fisher to tap-dance around it.

    Come out and explain why LGBT equality is bad without comparison, without metaphor. Until you can do that, give me my equality.

  8. by his logic then i guess we also have a license to discriminate against him and his ilk who immorally preach hate against law-abiding americans.

  9. The extreme right wing Christianists can back pedal all they want when called out ("oh, we don't really expect to put the queers behind fences, or kill them."), but, in fact, their rhetoric is dangerous, and they do mean it.

    I was reading a report on evangelical after school programs - allowed in public schools - where young children read Bibel stories about God commanding death to all (Saul? I'm not a Biblical scholar). He spares some livestock, and the king. The lesson taught? You are not in compliance, you are not done, until you do exactly as God commands. No shades of grey. It's there in black and white.

    So when the whack jobs call for discrimination - and worse - they mean it. And they should be held accountable.

  11. In a way, you kinda have to feel sorry for the man. He's obviously just a miserably unhappy simpleton.

  13. This is where the freedom of speech goes too far. This is hate speech. This is propaganda. This is reprogramming weak-minded people to justify hatred-based actions. When people like Fisher start rewriting the English language, his followers believe their ignorance is justified and we start seeing murder and beatings and horrible acts against innocent people. The ignorant, simple-minded idiots who worship these monsters eat this stuff up without a second thought about it.

  14. Someone please call the nursing home and tell them Bryan got out again and is terrorizing the neighborhood again. And to bring his medication, poor old thing.

  15. ....and they wonder why they are classified as a hate group? Why is Focus on the Family still a tax exempt organization (see FS-2006-17, February 2006 for 501(c)(3) organizations)?

  16. Andy Towle posts this extremists nonsense because he knows it causes the gay knee jerkers to go nuts. Why doesn't he post the opinions of the more reasonable voices of the left and right?

  17. @Littlekiwi
    You hypocrite! YOU TELL GAY PEOPLE TO COMMIT SUICIDE JUST BECAUSE THEY QUESTION YOUR PRONOUNCEMENTS! "Why don't you do your best Sylvia Plath..." You tell gay people to "grow a pair" and tell them their testes are small. Straight homophobes say things exactly like that to gay people to make them feel horrible and it works and you know it. YOU ARE HOMOPHOBIC FILTH! You can't deny your words are meant to hurt as bad as possible. That is why you choose to claim you are gay and then victimize actual gay people. If you are gay, you are a sociopath because you say the most hateful hurtrul homophobic slurs to other gay people without conscience! You are unaware how wildly inapropriate your appropriating other peoples handles "jokes" are. You don't see how other people are repulsed by you even when people started out "adoring" you (UFFDA) you end up nauseating them in the time it took for winter to turn to spring. He told me as much and you saw it. You don't realize how repelent you are. Everyone knows that is you doing the misapropriations because you are no more clever than homer simpson "Look at me, I'm stupid Flanders!" That is the level of your parody. That is how much insight into other people you have. You can't empathize because you are a sociopath.
    TJ, you are not Littlekiwi's friend because you never defend him like you do me. Well I call you on it this time. Admit all that I say about those concrete examples is true, and stope condoning it, or you are every bit as sadistic as perverted littlekiwi.

  18. or keep posting obsessive essays about me from a place of anonymity. because that's sane.

  19. It's really thrown me for a loop, Jeff R.

    What are you doing in here "Hullnaught"? Wouldn't you be more at home at Free Republic?

  20. This site would be so much more rational, insightful and sane without both demogogues: Littlekiwi and Nullnaughts.

  24. @David Ehrentstein
    I suppose you assume that because I point out Kiwi's behaviour (do you want to deny any of what I said? I beg you to PLEASE, because I will just expand on my theme that Kiwi is a psychopathic traitor, if he is actually gay)that I am defending the scum in the article. NO I AM NOT. I noticed kiwi's hypocrisy and felt compelled to point out what a revolting person he is.
    Do you care to deny any of my concrete examples of behaviours he has exhibited over and over, contest my conclusions, or make more absurd suggestions about my political affiliations?

    You never instructed me how to get my homepage. I want to know. You never answered any of my questions. YOu made a few vague statements and left. If you think that is instruction, you are mistaken. I don't know what you wish to call it, but an instructor is responsible to get his explanation understood.
    Do you want to explain to me how and where I can get my own home page that is not on a virus-prone site (Facebook, I understand) nor is it a site where you can only upload videos, or do you want to continue to sh!t all over yourself making demands you know for a fact I can not meet? That is sadistic behaviour, you know. (as in you are a psychopath.)

  25. Only an evil piece of sh!t would speak like that in 2012.
