Bryan Fischer: Gays Should Be Banned From Public Office - VIDEO

Bryan fischer

Wingnut Bryan Fischer, who heads the anti-gay organization American Family Association, has said that all gay people should be inherently disqualified from holding public office, reports Right Wing Watch.

Fischer used the controversy surrounding Texas Governor Rick Perry’s attempts to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign following her arrest for drunk driving to argue his point.

Referring to Lehmberg as an "open lesbian," he said that “somebody who is engaged in sexually deviant behavior is not qualified to hold public office.”

Fischer continued:

“If you get a conviction for rape, you can't hold public office. You get a conviction for pedophilia, you can't hold public office. You might even get run out of office on a prostitution charge because it's sexually deviant behavior. Now lesbianism is sexually deviant behavior because it deviates from God's plan and design for human sexually. So I believe that this is a person who, because she's involved in sexually deviant behavior, should be, ought to be disqualified from public service.”

  1. In the examples he gave, people aren't being disqualified from office because of sexually deviant behavior, they're being disqualified because of _illegal_ behavior.

  2. This jackass thinks about gay sex more than gays do.

    What does that say?

  3. American Family Association.
    Focus on the Family.
    Family Research Council.

    The shelters for these socially inept deviants multiply like dung flies.
    There must be a heap of money paying these sad little pimples......but where is that money coming from ?

    And are these bigots all being paid by slush funds and claiming tax exempt status ?
    Are the Koch Brothers involved ?

  4. Only trannies should be banned from public office. They clearly lack the rationality and patience to serve the public. They self mutilate and then expect the rest of the world to tolerate it as though this practice is normal. It's time to put our foot down as an LGB community and tell the T community "enough is enough." Do we really want more homophobic "Trans" individuals altering laws to hurt the LGB community?

  6. Am I mistaken or does he seem to be the most often vocal homophobe among christians

    One has to wonder why he devotes so much time to gays

  7. So rather than flapping his gums, he should run for office and try and institute this law. Go for it baby!!

  8. Can the Catholic Church get him disqualified for being non-Jesus-y in his behavior?

    I know, I'm laughing at my comment too. When is the Catholic Church ever going to do something right, and start righting wrongs.

  10. The way he conflates "legal" and "immoral" says a lot about his audience -- and his lack of respect for them.

  11. Religious whack jobs should be confined to small basement rooms.

  12. What about sexually deviant, money-grubbing Fundamentalist Christians? Oh, God forgives them, so that's OK.

  13. If they banned gay people, there would be barely any conservatives left.

  14. Nobody with any sway or credible position in the national dialogue has any idea who this guy is -- nor care about what he has to say -- except Towleroad. Why do you post this? Can't we move on?

  15. Evangelicals are religious deviants and social psychopaths. They should be banned from running for and serving in public office. They should also be triple-taxed for any money they receive from their spiritually decadent and morally depraved sycophants.

  16. The Nazis "thought" that Jews should not be allowed to hold public office, so I guess Bryan Fisher can claim a precedent for his opinion - "people I don't like should not be allowed to hold public offices."

    How anyone can spout what Fisher spouts and keep a straight face is beyond me.

  17. Another "helmut of white hair". Fellow LGBT brothers and sisters, this is the sign you must look for; a sign of those who would bring the apocalypse of hate.

  18. The crackpot christians have clearly jumped the shark.

  19. Actually, he's quite wrong. On the federal level, conviction of a felony would not bar you from office. You probably won't win an election and you could be impeached, but you are not barred from office. Further, for a long time, federal regulations barred gays and lesbians from federal employment.

  20. Will this include office holders with wide stances?

  21. bigotted x-tians should be banned from the airwaves and from office.

    As I sing "Imagine"

  22. Don't forget that MARYM = RICK too.

  23. I can't believe people still talk about "God's plan" with a straight face.

  24. He's preaching way too much to the choir.. I think he needs to take his mission overseas, perhaps Syria or Iraq, and preach to ISIS about God's plan..

  25. You say a lot of things, Bryan, but no one is going to take you seriously or give a sh*t.
