Fox News Reporters Claim Vicious Anti-Gay Hate Group is a 'Well-Respected Christian Ministry': VIDEO


On Fox & Friends on Tuesday, reporter Todd Starnes critiqued a military training session on domestic hate groups which included the American Family Association (AFA) alongside the KKK, neo-Nazis, and the Nation of Islam.

Starnes referred to the training as "anti-Christian activity" and claimed it represented increasingly hostile military environment for Christian service members. The other reporters, along with Starnes, said the AFA's anti-gay marriage beliefs were the sole reason for its inclusion in the hate group training.

South Florida Gay News points out the reality:

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) designated AFA as a hate group for promoting anti-gay attacks that harm individuals and threaten human rights. 


Bryan Fischer, the American Family Association’s unofficial spokesman and the group’s director of issues analysis, has previously called on the government to prohibit mosques from being built anywhere in the United States, suggested “the most compassionate thing” America can do is deport all Muslims, and wrote that “gay sex is a form of domestic terrorism.”

The American Family Association has also enthusiastically endorsed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s draconian anti-gay laws, with Fischer stating that the country isn’t being homophobic but “homorealistic.”

The AFA also touts "reparative therapy" for gay people, believes in punishment for homosexual sex, and has linked homosexuality as a cause of the Holocaust.

  4. Let me get this straight. Alleged anti-christian "bullying" [telling them they can no longer attack gay people] is bad, but decades of anti-gay bullying by christians was A-OK becuase, you know...the bible. Ok.

  5. seriously? bryan fisher is like the poster demon for hate mongering. i usually don't like even how the gay media reports him, like he's some kind of, he is evil and is an advocate for real violence in this world. there needs to be a more mature, serious takedown of him and all his peers. NOW.

  6. Conservatives want our rights to come from God so that they can restrict them to the people most deserving of God's favor: themselves.

    They want our rights to come from God so they can overlook the fact that we live in a secular democracy, not a Christian theocracy.

    If you have rights, they say, it's because God gave them to you. If you don't have rights, they say, it's because God disfavored you, and He always will, so you'll be permanently out of luck.

    Handy, eh?

  8. Diversionary tactics, people: it's all about the bucks, big bucks to the fascist right from the mouth breathers, as long as the AFA and their unindicted co-conspirators (rhymes with "Coke") can keep public attention focused on them dirty queers and away from the looting of America's treasure by the corporate oligarchy.

  13. What's the difference between a church and a hate group?

    Hate groups are more honest about their intentions.
