Bryan Fischer Warns Boy Scouts Will be Destroyed by 'Homosexual Pedophiles Like Jerry Sandusky': VIDEO


On his show Friday, American Family Association Bryan Fischer used the popular right-wing lie linking homosexuality to pedophilia in discussing the Boy Scouts policy against gays, warning that allowing them would allow "homosexual pedophiles like this Jerry Sandusky" to infiltrate the BSA, Right Wing Watch reports.

  1. Jerry Sandusky is heterosexual.

  2. This issue with the Boy Scouts is very similar to the military's repealed DADT policy. I am a Eagle Scout (you're never a former or ex Eagle Scout regardless of your age) and can tell you from my experience with many years in scouting that there are already MANY honorable gay people, scouts and leaders, in scouting. The fact that some were gay had zero impact on their ability to be a good scout or great leader. Continuing this "ban" will not prevent gay people in scouting. It's ridiculous!

  3. What a simpleton. Gays have been "infiltrating" the Boy Scouts since the group's founding. The Scouts' leadership has always had a number of gay members; the youngsters' part of the Scouts has, and will continue to have, gay members simply because the group bridges that age range where young men learn how they lean sexually. Let us not forget that youngsters experiment with sex -- even out in their tents, but relatively rarely with the troop leaders.

    It's a perverse kind of treat to hear an individual broadcasting such blatant, hateful, bigoted, benighted, doggerel. His audience must number in the high teens, don't you think?

  4. some people make it so hard not to hate...
    do people still buy the some pedophiles are gay so gays are pedophiles mantra? Sandusky has a problem and it is not being gay. is he gay? maybe, he certainly seems to like little boys...but he's been married to a woman his whole life and currently denying these allegations of child molestation. he's clearly sick and probably a pedofile but he is defintiely not LGBT, so their is no correlation to the boy scouts and homosexuality.

  5. Really. Please. Stop.

    It's a basic fact that Bryan Fischer is a wingnut. He's been a wingnut for a long time and he's probably going to die a wingnut. Every day I see this man's photo, I just cringe and move on, but it seems as if there has been an inordinate amount of attention payed to this wingnut in the past several months as if what he is saying is creating some controversy that we aren't already aware of. Can you just create a "Wingnut Alert" section off to the side somewhere that doesn't interfere with your regularly scheduled informative and entertaining posts? It's just so godawful irritating to even read about this turd in the punchbowl.

    I've even asked my own mother, a church-going Methodist who sings in the choir every Sunday and believes in my equal right to exist and has seen me through a few relationships and viewed them as valid as anyone else's, "Do you know who Bryan Fischer of the AFA is?"

    Her response? "Who?"

  6. Jerry Sandusky (before he was exposed) was more than qualified to be a scout leader according to their rules.

  7. Pedophiles come in the same varieties non-pedophiles do: homosexual, heterosexual, and bisexual.

    The tired old notion that most gay men are pedophiles has largely been discarded by society, based on the factual evidence that has been accumulated over the last few decades. So people like Fisher who continue to promulgate it will only make themselves look like fools to most of the population.

    But for some of you to claim that homosexual pedophiles, like Sandusky, are "not gay" is as silly as for heterosexuals to cliam that heterosexual pedophiles are not straight. He did not molest girls and boys; he only molested boys, so clearly he had a sexual preference and that makes him gay--not one to be proud of, but no less gay than Jeffrey Dahmer or the Canadian porn star who was just arrested for hacking his "partner" to death.

    There are gay pedophiles and murderers and criminals and insane people, just as there are straight ones, so to pretend they are not gay just because they are bad people is just self-serving and without validity.

  8. ESA,

    Your mom may not know who Fisher is but there are many who do. I think the more we highlight the crazy rantings of homophobic bigots like Fisher the better! Sane, critical thinking people need to witness this!

  9. Not at all surprising that a simpleton like Rick would equate "he only molested boys" to mean that Sandusky is homosexual.

    Posted by: endo | Jun 18, 2012 11:55:06 AM

  10. This is offensive and blatantly false. The term "homosexual pedophiles" is sure to strike fear into bible thumper's heads. Pedophiles don't usually care if their victims are male or female, as long as they are pre-pubescent. It has nothing to do with homosexuailty.

  11. Ha! The current policy would have welcomed Sandusky, no problem..

  12. Jake, I do agree with you wholeheartedly. After so many years of the bulls#!* barrage, however, one experiences a bit of wingnut fatique. It is of course, of the utmost importance to identify the ridiculousness of zealots and politicized religious fiction. My comment is really more of the "Gawd, does it ever end?" variety.

  13. @RICK "But for some of you to claim that homosexual pedophiles, like Sandusky, are "not gay" is as silly as for heterosexuals to claim that heterosexual pedophiles are not straight."

    He is not gay because he declares that he is a straight, happily married man and swears these allegations are false. he does not believe he is gay therefore he is not gay. He is a sick man who preyed on under aged boys, but that in and of itself does not make him, gay. Most experts say molestation and pedophilia is not always about sex and preference. don't act like you are some knowledgeable psychiatrist who understands all aspects of pedophiles and the reasons why they choose their victims. we know the truth, you are actually a head case with his own problems that pushes them on others because you can’t be who you truly are inside.

  14. The fault with the Sandusky incidents is that people knew and didn't act on their knowledge. They are as much to blame as Sandusky. Would the Boy Scouts let something like that go unaddressed? Somehow, I don't think so.

  15. hey not doubt IF Sandusky HAD access to both boys/and girls - there would be girls who would have been "Groped" by him too...and most likely this would have come out LONG before now...

  16. "Pedophiles don't usually care if their victims are male or female, as long as they are pre-pubescent. It has nothing to do with homosexuailty"


    NAMBLA stands for the North American MAN-BOY Love Association, not the North American MAN-CHILD Love Association. Why? Because its members have no interest in girls, only boys.

    And the reason you have not heard about priests molesting little girls is because they have virtually all molested only little boys, as did Sandusky.

    Stop trying to lie out of political expediency.

  17. @Rick I question your motives.

    A man being sexually attracted to men is not the same as a man being sexually attracted to boys.

    Most pedaphiles have no sexual attraction to adults and therefore do not qualify as gay or straight.

  18. It's bizarre how people like Fischer and others try to tar the gay community with the actions of ONE person, and that person doesn't even identity as gay and would probably have punched you in the face if you said he was. The other day someone commented on a Yahoo story about Sandusky, "Jeffrey Dahmer was gay too!" Uh, and Ted Bundy was straight, so what's your point?

    The fact of the matter is that studies have shown that OUT gay men are almost never child abusers. They've already told you what they like, other adult men. Thanks to stereotypes about gay men parents tend to keep an eye on them around children so it's NOT a successful strategy for a child molester! Child abusers are MUCH more likely to be married and even have kids because that's how they get close to their prey, by blending in. Most child molestation is perpetrated by a family member or friend. It's the married guy down the street who is "so good with kids" and goes out of his way to spend time with them that parents need to worry about, not out gay men.

    And FWIW I don't even think NAMBLA is a real group. Maybe it was at some point but there are probably more undercover law enforcement members in it than there are real members. Either way it's disgusting because child abuse is always wrong- children CANNOT consent so no matter how much flowery language you wrap it up in it's rape. Period.

  19. "Most pedaphiles have no sexual attraction to adults and therefore do not qualify as gay or straight"

    Also, not true. Sandusky was married and has several children by his wife. In fact, most pedophiles have otherwise "normal" lives, including relationships, sexual and otherwise, with adults.

    As for my is the same as always. The honest truth.

    Posted by: Rick | Jun 18, 2012 1:54:09 PM

  20. "As for my is the same as always. The honest truth"

    Yeah, but why does it always come out as the dishonest truth.

  21. "As for my is the same as always. The honest truth."

    LOL! That's the biggest laugh I've had today! Rick, you're a straight-up TROLL. Your posts do have some meager benefit because arguing with you encourages more people to post their own comments. I rarely bother since it's a waste of time.

    Posted by: Caliban | Jun 18, 2012 2:07:36 PM

  22. "Yeah, but why does it always come out as the dishonest truth."

    It only sounds that way to those who are threatened by the honest truth and want to run away from it.

    If we counter the lies propagated by the Bryan Fishers of the world with lies of our own, then we will be no more credible than he is with the public.

    And if we lie to ourselves about ourselves, we will never be able to fix what is wrong.

    Posted by: Rick | Jun 18, 2012 2:09:06 PM

  23. So: if your have to watch Gay men around little boys, doesn't it follow that you should watch straight men around little girls?

  24. He oughta know about the predilections of pedos, after all, he's not only the president of company, he's also a member.
