  1. Wait now. A Big Christian is passing up an opportunity to "testify"? Isn't that his Christian duty?

  5. Murray: Your man Christian is a cake boy!

    Cher, Dionne: A what?

    Murray: He's a disco-dancing, Oscar Wilde-reading, Streisand ticket-holding friend of Dorothy, know what I'm saying?

    Cher: Uh-uh, no way, not even!

    Murray: Yes, even; he's gay!

    Dionne: He does like to shop, Cher. And the boy can dress.

  6. He's had them all right. Just not humane enough to admit it.

    Can you just imagine the utter yuckiness of being hit on by Bryan Fischer.

  7. I'm more interested in finding out if he's ever had an impulse to actually use the brain that God gave him.

  8. Karen: Oh cripes honey, let me give it to you in a nutshell.

    Karen: Your boyfriends a big flaming, feather wearing, man kissing, disco dancing, *takes a drink* Vermont living, Christina Aguilera loving, Mykonos going...

    Karen: ...honey take it on home.

    Jack: Tom's queer dear.

  9. Everyone knows; when the day came to choose his sexuality, he checked the STRAIGHT box.

  10. Of course Fisher is dodging the question. If he said, "no," the follow up question would have been, "if sexual orientation is a choice, how come you were never, ever, even slightly attracted to some guy sometime during your life?" If he said, "yes," there'd be lots of PR about him being gay, which would swamp out his message. Either way, he loses.

  11. Say it isn't so Bryan! Tell them that you are a proud macho Kinsey 0. Heterosexuality depends on you. Speaking of Depends .......

  12. Didn't he kind of obliquely admit it?

    "The focus here everybody experiences sexual impulses that if they acted on those impulses, it would destroy them. ... ...You've experienced them, I've experienced them ...."

    Fischer is an extremely experienced public speaker and debater. He very carefully chooses his words. When given an opportunity to categorically deny that he's ever had a homosexual impulse, he very carefully avoids denying it. I think one can only conclude that he HAS struggled with such impulses (perhaps successfully), and is embarrassed to admit it. This is HUGE news.

  13. LOL...Mrs. Fischer.

    Posted by: Walt NYC | May 9, 2013 2:34:38 PM

  14. He doesn't need to admit to anything: No man has ever been more obsessed with gay!

    It is all he talks about. Therefore, it is all he THINKS about.

  15. @ HirsuteHeuristics, hahahaha...

  16. Shocking, just shocking.

    Next thing you're going to tell us is Tony Perkin is a self-loathing homosexual or Bryan Fischer is a self-loathing homosexual or 99.9% of men who want to preach about the evils of homosexuality are self-loathing homosexuals or Tuesday comes right after Monday.

  17. Andy Towle, you are so wrong and so SHADY for posting that photo of Fissure, lol

  18. I don't think Mr. Fischer admitted to having had gay impulses just by refusing to answer the question. Many people don't like to get into the specifics about their sexual desires. Of course the arguments for or against marriage equality have nothing to do with the the motives of the people who make them. If SSM is a bad idea for society, it doesn't matter how poignant the story given by an individual gay person about his love for his partner/spouse. And if it is good for society then it should be legal even if those who oppose it are Kinsey 2's trying desperately to pretend they are Kinsey 0's - which may be the case for at least some people on the right.

  19. So he deflected the question...why?

    Posted by: | May 9, 2013 5:42:22 PM

  20. "So he deflected the question...why?"

    Because once you indicate that you are willing to answer questions about what you've felt sexually or what you've desired to do, the questions will multiply. Then it will be -" Have you lusted after other women after you were married even if you didn't cheat on your wife? How old were you when you first had (straight) sex? Were you and your wife both virgins when you married.?"

    You can see the problems this would lead to. Then a person who refuses to answer whether he's ever felt X way or done X activity will essentially be admitting that he has. I don't blame Fischer for refusing to answer.

  21. Methinks you doth protest too much, Ms. Fischer.

  22. @Mary: "Of course the arguments for or against marriage equality have nothing to do with the the motives of the people who make them."

    I disagree with this, particularly the proposition that the arguments AGAINST marriage equality have nothing to do with the motives of the people who make them.

    I think those arguments have EVERYTHING to do with the desire of fundamentalist-evangelical types to impose a fundamentalist theology into public policy. And THAT is why there are NO good arguments against equality.

    As far as Mark Fissure (love that), how can it possibly compromise him to say "No, of course not. Never. Not once. Don't be ridiculous. But the focus here, blah, blah, blah, hate, hate, hate...." He didn't do that. And it makes me wonder who's out there knowing what about him.

    Men like Mark Fissure live one rest-stop toe-tap away from oblivion. The pressure must be awful.

  23. @Maguitac: Don't assume that because it is all he talks about, it is all he thinks about. The reason it is all he talks about could be that it is all he is paid to talk about.

    Unfortunately, the definitive way to tell is rather expensive - you'd have to get some gay group to try to hire him as a spokesperson with an offer of a sizable pay raise over what he is making today.

  24. Well, Bryan has admitted to having this long, passionate, adoring, weak-in-the-knees relationship with some sweet, hot, bearded hunk named, uh, Jesus that causes to Bryan ululate at all the wrong times. I mean, don't get more homo than that, right Bryan?
