AFA's Bryan Fischer Keeps Hammering 'Underground Railroad' For Children Of Gay Couples: VIDEO


Evangelical radio host Bryan Fischer from the American Family Association doubled down on his claims that children need to be kidnapped from same-sex couples to protect them from the so-called gay agenda.

In the video AFTER THE JUMP, Fischer again suggests constructing an "underground railroad" for that very purpose.

  1. OMG more power to you, Bryan. I'd LOVE to see you go to prison.

  2. A pretty sad little man, not quite the best PR for God's Gentle People.

  3. I see you are trying to turn this into another Joe.My.God with the constant Fisher tirades. He is obviously baiting you and is enjoying every minute of it - and the Gays fall for it every time.

  4. What evangelicalism meant originally is very different from what this sad man is doing. I would call him far-con evangelical, and in his (and many others) case it is a political movement with main goal to hate and destroy everyone and everything not alike themselves.

  5. This guy isn't what we should be worrying about, its the people that hang on his every word. One of these days we're going to see a story of some gay couple's kid being abducted by one of these nut jobs.

  6. Ignore it, and it goes away. He is a lunatic. Just like Westboro Baptist. If people stop noticing their sad little protests, they lose their power.

  7. Ugh, like the FBI doesn't have enough work to do....

  8. Yes, children in a loving, nurturing home with same-sex parents is just like owning slaves.

    Harriet Tubman would be proud!

  9. I'm sure there are children of evangelicals who'd like to be rescued from their families.

  10. What Byron St. James and AJ said.

    Geez, wake up, TR.

    His reach small, but you help greaten it. And you also contribute to misinforming and faux-empowering gays who believe this crazy is real and threatening. What's your primary motivation? Traffic or paranoia?

    Gee, thanks. You're doing the cause a great service.

  11. When will they be investigated as the terrorist organization that they are?

  12. DH, he obviously sees LGBT kids rescured from Fundie parents as being "kidnapped."

    Posted by: David Ehrenstein | Aug 9, 2012 1:03:08 PM

  13. Any legal experts out there? If he is encouraging felonious activity,, can't he be arrested for that? It seems like the line of free speech is crossed when you begin telling your mob to go out and do harm. But seriously- if there are any legal-people out there, are there any charges he can be brought in on from these comments?

  14. I work in the courts. Two days ago I was with a sad, sad woman doing time in our state penal institution. She had accidentally killed a child using Michael Pearl's evangelical discipline techniques. The nerve of them to condemn loving gay families! These twisted people like Fischer are breathtakingly evil.

  15. Can we just ignore this raving lunatic and his inane ramblings? I bet he comes to this site and masturbates while reading the comments on his latest case of mental diarrhea.

  16. I hope that if ANYTHING even remotely resembling a kidnapping from an LGBT family occurs, that he is held and charged for inciting the action, as well as the idiots who listen to him and take his words to heart. THIS MAN IS CRAZY AND HE IS DANGEROUS. There are idiots out there who hang on his every word...THAT scares the crap out of me.

  17. Attention Department of Justice/FBI:

    This man is probably trying to find families with gay/lesbian parents in Bible-belt states right now. That would amount to conspiracy to commit kidnapping. An investigation is in order.

    Posted by: Artie_in_Lauderdale | Aug 9, 2012 1:33:06 PM

  18. Once again: this is prompted by the kidnapping that HAS occurred.

    Kenneth Miller is on trial in Burlington NOW on charges of international kidnapping in connection with the Lisa Miller case.

  19. Two comments-

    Say "lesbian" again....


    Yes, the ______ are going to steal your children!

    Insert gypsies, jews, homos, or whatever other group tickles your bigoted fancy here....

  20. posted today "Why we have to keep monitoring Bryan Fischer":

    "Every once is [sic] a while, we will get criticized for supposedly paying too much attention to the AFA's Bryan Fischer, with people accusing us of giving him the attention that he craves and suggesting that we'd be better off just ignoring him.

    "Believe us, we'd love nothing more than to be able to ignore Fischer's daily litany of idiotically bigoted ravings ... but we can't do that as long as leading Republican candidates keep appearing on his program, as Missouri GOP Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin did just today where they rejoiced in the fact that 'freedom seems to be on the march again'."

  21. Tell you what, Bry. We'll set up "safe houses" and "refugee spaces" for kids trying to escape from nutjob fanatical Christian fundie parents who abuse them, torture them, imprison them, etc. We'll have one each in Seattle, Portland, SF, LA, Chicago, New York, Boston, and Miami. Then we'll take out nationwide ads letting kids know they exist.

    You go ahead and set up your "underground railroad" for kids who want to "escape" from their gay parents to "safe houses" in Salt Lake City, Kansas City, Houston, Cincinnati, Nashville, Tampa, and Atlanta. And you reach out nationwide to let kids know they exist.

    At the end of six months, if you did a comparison study, I think you'd probably find several thousand kids crammed into the gay-friendly refugee houses, vs. maybe one or two in your fundie Christian houses (and those would probably be there because their two dads or two moms wouldn't let them borrow the car overnight, or go to an unsupervised party, or refused to buy them the new i-Phone).

    Unconditional love wins out over fear and hate.

  22. @Scott:

    He has to be inciting imminent and unlawful behavior. Raising the idea wouldn't support prosecution.

    Otherwise, Snoop could be arrested for saying "smoke weed everyday."

  23. Thanks Jack.

  24. @Diogenes Arktos, I get that. I really do. I'm glad that *someone* out there is keeping an eye on these people, but I'd rather stick my head in a toilet and flush then watch one of his videos. Same thing, really. I've never actually watched one of these vids and I have no plan to. It's not really a newsflash that there are some really deranged @ssh@oles out there spouting this stuff.

    So how about instead of the DAILY announcement on TR that the AFA's Bryan Fischer said some nutty homophobic crap, which is right up there with 'the sun rose this morning' in its newsworthiness, that Bryan Fischer "news" be limited to when a political candidate appears on his show? It makes sense for RightWingWatch to document his every utterance because that's what they do, watch the right wing. If someone wants to keep up with it, it's right there for them. But on a gay news blog it these almost DAILY stories feel gratuitous, like "look at this fresh pile of dog poo we found to rub your face in! Enjoy!"

    "AFA crazyman Bryan Fischer says gays are evil while he's a friggin' SAINT!" There. I've just written ALL the Bryan Fischer headlines for the foreseeable future, so until he deviates from that formula there's no reason to announce every time he breaks verbal wind.

  25. The gay community has every right to be outraged, but where are the Christians in all this controversy? Why aren't Christians coming out to condemn this tirade? Have they not heard about Bryan Fischer? Or are they afraid of him?
