AFA's Bryan Fischer Calls on States to Ignore Any SCOTUS Ruling Favoring Marriage Equality: VIDEO


Of course American Family Association blowhard has weighed in on today's Supreme Court ruling on marriage, urging states to ignore any ruling that favors marriage equality, Right Wing Watch reports.

Says Fischer:

Anything short of upholding DOMA, anything short of upholding Prop 8 in California will be a setback for the rule of law, it will be a setback for a constitutional form of government; in fact you can just eliminate the first three words of the Constitution: “We the people.” That will be utterly meaningless if the Supreme Court does not uphold Prop 8 and does not uphold DOMA, period. Anything short of that and the American people have been robbed of the capacity and the right and the authority to be a self-governing people.

If the states were to do it, the thirty states that have marriage amendments say, ‘fine, the Supreme Court has issued its ruling, we’re going to ignore it, they have exceeded their authority, we have no obligation. In fact, if we recognize their ruling, we give credence to it, then we are violating the Constitution because the Constitution gives them no authority to do that to us so we have compounded their unconstitutional act with an unconstitutional act of our own.

  3. Looks like somebody needs to brush up on their elementary school social studies.. he's talking complete nonsense.

  6. But you bet he endorses the gutting of the Voting Rights Act, from that same Supreme Court. That one we shouldn't ignore.

  7. Maybe I just crave drama, but I think it would be funny as hell if we had a civil war over same-sex marriage of all things, and the fundies were globally acknowledged as the rebels. Remember, they promised "The south shall rise again."

  8. i would still like to know HOW he plans for them to go about doing this. i know one person who said the only way would be for him to NOT have a same sex marriage. ewwwwwww! wipe that picture from my mind........

  9. Wow. I think he should be detained and questioned. Sounds like a traitor.

  10. I feel the only place Bryan Fischer has any weight is in his own mind. It doesn't matter what you proclaim, if no one's listening. The only people who would stop to listen are the ones who already agree with him, or the ones monitoring him.

  11. Fischer has an audience in the tens of millions in 30 states. They listen religiously and take their talking points from this hatemongering hump.

    DOMA gone! Prop 8 Gone!
    His head will be exploding all over those states today.

  12. How did he hold back from a rant predicting a wave of public sodomies across the nation today?

  13. Right. Because he now knows more than the Supreme Court...because he says he does. This guy is just a sad piece of work. Maybe he's so adamant because he's really one of us, deep down. What a load of crap.

  14. NOW maybe attention can go to ENDA, which will benefit so many more people than the admittedly important but actually peripheral Marriage Equality. There are plenty of us who don't want to be joined in marriage but need to have security in jobs.

  15. In honor of Bryan Fischer's distress over the Supreme Court DOMA ruling, I'm having a very big slice of schadenfreude pie.

  16. States don't have any say over DOMA, so they can't do anything about it. It's a federal matter entirely. Prop 8 is limited to CA.

  17. He forgets that we in the LGBT community are also part of "WE THE PEOPLE". Until, he and those like him, recognize we are also citizens who should have rights equal to anyone without regard to religious affiliation or acceptance of religious doctrine then the only chance for changes with them is with their passing.

  18. Keep crying, Bryan....your sweet, sweet tears of rage sustain me.

  19. @Todd—I had the same reaction, in three words, he relegated gays to "not people".

    I'm surprised that scumbags like this jerk aren't handcuffed, this isn't free speech, it's enticement to hatred.

    Like the another commentor said, "he's a traitor".

  20. He's an idiot. The states with marriage bans don't have to do anything, the ruling doesn't impact them in any way so he's counselling them to do exactly what they can do regardless, what it means is that folks who are min same sex marriages and legally so in the jurisdiction where they were married, can now access federal benefits they couldn't before. He needs to crawl back under the stank rock he crawled out from under.
