AFA's Bryan Fischer Wants to Know Why We're Banning Trans Fats and Not Homosexuality: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-11-08 at 2.53.42 PM

American Family Association spokeshater Bryan Fischer wasn't pleased about the FDA's recent announcement that it was phasing out trans fats from America's food supply. 

Said Fisher:

"Even though [trans fats] makes your frosting taste better, your doughnuts taste better, makes your crackers taste better, and improves their texture, their shelf stability, [the FDA] believe its bad for you. Bad for your heart. That's their conviction, the FDA. So we've got to ban it because it is bad for human health. Well if we were going to take that same reasoning, we would ban homosexuality. It is a hazard to human health."

  2. I guess everyone here already knows that trans fats (remember those cans of Crisco?) don't make anything taste better and were never used by any quality traditional bakers or restaurants. Everything was already invented long before they existed.

  3. he probably got confused and thought transfat was transgendered

  4. I would encourage the creation of a trans fat exception for Mr. Fisher and suggest that the more trans fats you eat, the less time you will have to spend around homosexuals.

  5. Oh and it's not just the FDA that thinks trans fats are unhealthy. It's every food scientist and nutritionist on earth. Actually, the FDA doesn't think anything until it has analysed and tabulated all the studies and information available on anything. That's why it's taken them so long.

  6. Emjayjay -- No, you don't understand: In Bryan Fischer's universe, evidence and judgments based on evidence are unknown concepts. Opinions are based on those 3,000 year old tribal taboos from a bunch of Middle Eastern sheepherders that one chooses to accept.

  7. Poor old Brian Fischer: still trying to make "news" out of a grumpy face and debunked lies.

  8. everything comes back to homosexuality with this guy.
    he should just have sex with a man and it over with. it's obviously all he thinks about.

  9. Alright, don't start lumping my Krispie Kremes into your idiotic argument - they are transfat free after all. Check your facts fool.

  10. Wonderful!!! All the trans fat WE'RE not ingesting should (by all means) go to Bryan immediately. His life has been too long by at least 30 years, anyway! I'd hand-feed him myself, but I'm much too busy redecorating The Gay Lobby. Fabric!! I want lots of fabric!!

  11. The first symptom of excessive consumption of transfats - diarrhea of the brain.

    Yup, Mr. Fischer, you have a problem.

  12. Fisher's such an ass.

  13. The FDA does not have jurisdiction over human behavior, but sodomy used to be banned and life expectancies were much lower. Society has been able to liberate everyone's sex life because prevention and treatment have reduced the risks, particularly for women. BF's worldview is a direct assault on the notion of "progress".

  14. Andy, why are you giving this crackpot publicity? Who the f cares what he says?

    Posted by: Ken | Nov 8, 2013 8:46:51 PM

  15. if he thinks homosexuality is hazardous, he's obviously doing it wrong.

  16. Trans fats are unhealthy; homosexuals are not. They have accepted who they are, are not trying to ram their "religion" down anyone's throat & do make things that are pretty. Fischer's pissed because we're getting the right to marriage equality and he still has to run around hiding in closets & T-rooms & changing rooms to get off!

  17. It's absolutely Alice; I'd know him anywhere !

    "Verdict first; evidence later"....said the Red Queen.

  18. He is absolutely OBSESSED with gays and gay sex.

  19. Something tells me he thinks trans fats means something other that what they actually are. Because he's demented.

  20. @JackFknTwist: it was the White Queen. You have to get it, err, straight: queens are so fussy about colors.

    What Bryan Fisher really missed is that the FDA is not preventing him from using trans fats: the idea is to stop corporations from sneaking trans fats into their products to make a buck at your expense. You shouldn't have to take a magnifying glass to the supermarket so you can read the fine print on each package you buy to see what is really in it (plus a dictionary since, if they know trans fats are bad, they'll simply use a different name). The sleaziness of these large corporations is truly amazing: I once saw a packaged pastry and it listed the number of calories per serving. The pastry was in one piece and not very large but they pretended it was two servings so they could make the number of calories seem lower. Those are the creeps the FDA is supposed to be protecting us from.

  22. That darn Brian Feltcher, what will he think of next!

    Posted by: david | Nov 9, 2013 2:41:19 AM

  23. Actually Bry, trans fats don't make anything "taste" better. They were developed as a means to extend the shelf life of producs that would otherwise spoil if they used natural ingredients - mostly butter and other natural fats. Dumbass.

  24. His idiotism raised to a new level.

  25. If Towleroad never runs another story about Fischer or Lady Gaga it will be too soon.
