AFA's Bryan Fischer Applauds Russia's Anti-Gay Law as an Example of Model Public Policy: VIDEO


American Family Association spokeshater Bryan Fischer took to the airwaves on Monday to applaud Russia's anti-gay "propaganda" law as an example of the type of public policy he's been advocating for years. Fischer, who sees the law as Putin's attempt to reestablish 'Christian morality' for the country, then wondered why why so few anti-gay activists have been willing to stand up in defense of Russia.

Said Fischer:

"What Russia's done here with this law is they have expressed the values that we have been advocating for years and years and years....In my mind, we ought to be celebrating this. And I don't know what the timidity is. There's such a hesitancy in the pro-family community to support this law. I'm not sure what the reason for that is. But this is public policy that we've been advocating and here's a nation in the world that's actually putting it into practice."

Fischer's sole criticism of the anti-gay law is that it unfortunately doesn't go far enough to combat the scourge of homosexuality:

"They understand that homosexual behavior is a moral evil among teenagers. Now they need to get to the point where they recognize it's a moral evil for anybody."

Putin/Fischer 2018?

  2. Why does Towleroad insist on giving this cretin, the oxygen of publicity?

  3. MAry,because this guy is someone many of the people who run for the president on the Republican side make a point of cozying up to.

  4. @MARYM Because it pays to know thine enemies. There are millions of Americans who follow and believe in what this man says. They vote. Never, ever take the Bryan Fischers of the world for granted. We are always one or two elections away from the right-wing taking firm control all government.

  5. This guy is so extreme that it is not beneficial for anyone to cosy up to him.

    It's time to ignore him.

  6. Glad to hear that. Now this dumb ass can move to Russia where he belongs.

  7. The irony of having a graphic representing the U.S. constitution in the background while espousing the great qualities of Russia isn't lost on me.

  8. Funny, I thought sound public policy was supposed to safeguard citizen's rights, not oppress them...

  9. What no one seems to get is that the AFA and their ilk are giant fund-raising machines that use lowest-common-denominator vitriol to bestir the befuddled masses to shell out dollars, lots of them, to fight the "gay agenda" or whatever the bitter flavor of the week may be. This will stop only when the media (this means you, T'road) ignore these parasites.

  10. Isnt the AFA a designated hate group by the SPLC. Hasnt Fisher just stepped over a red line in promoting lawlessness. Anyone who can praise Russia for its "democracy" and civil rights needs to be on a watch list somewhere.

  11. Mr. Fischer really should go over to Russia and enjoy the glory of his worldview being put into practice. As for the USA, we are heading in another direction, and have no more time for hate-filled morons like him.

  14. If only Mr Fischer and those like him would all move to Russia. Then we would have plenty of room for the Russian gays who want to leave. Sounds like a fantastic trade to me.

  15. BF might find Russia less friendly than he thinks. First of all, it's illegal to criticize politicians in Russia, so he'd be in jail for a lot of remarks he's made. You also can't criticize the Russian Orthodox Church, which is in his mind an offshoot of the devilish Catholic Church and completely apostatic. Any Russians drink and smoke, which is against Baptist teachings too.

  16. Of course Bryan would say this. Him and Pat Robertson must have a wager going to see who can troll the gay community the hardest.
