Wingnut Bryan Fischer: 'Ordinary Americans' Fed Up With LGBT Advertising - VIDEO

Bryan fischer

Bryan Fischer has warned that advertisers face a backlash from "ordinary Americans" because of ads aimed at the LGBT community.

In recent months there has been a marked increase in LGBT-focused advertising.

A recent spot for Chevrolet which includes both same-sex and single parent families with the voice-over "while what it means to be family hasn't changed, what a family looks like has,” are representative of this shift towards LGBT-friendly advertising.

Speaking to Press Telegram, Bob Witeck, president of strategic communications firm Witeck Communications said:

“What we’re witnessing is the idea that you don’t have to isolate gay ads and messaging to markets only intended for gay people. Families all look different from the traditional family Americans grew up with 50 years ago. They are far more multiracial, more single parents, more gay couples raising kids. If you start leaving them out, you’re not only erasing gay people, but you’re also erasing people who are part of people’s family.”

However, Fischer, Director of Issues Analysis for fundamentalist Christian non-profit group The American Family Association, which maintains OneMillionMoms.com, argued:

“I think eventually this LGBT advertising push is gonna trigger a blowback from ordinary Americans. I think that ordinary Americans are getting fed up with having the homosexual agenda shoved down their throats when they’re watching TV with their families. What American families are gonna begin to react to is that they are recognizing that this is no longer about advertising a product. This is about propaganda for a sexually deviant lifestyle.”

Bryan Fischer Warns of Gay Fairy Tale Book Tainting the 'Tender Young Souls' of Children

PrincesTreasure

The Princes and the Treasure, a revisionist fairy tale which finds its duo of handsome princes (on a quest to save a damsel in distress, mind you) falling in love with each other, is likely sitting on the shelf of your local public library. Written by University of the Pacific professor Jeffrey A. Miles, the book is a welcome and exciting breath of fresh air for a genre which has steadfastly stood by its heteronormative foundations. Bryan Fischer feels differently.

Book Patrol reports:

Bryan Fischer, the director of issue analysis for the nonprofit Christian organization, talked with the Christian Post recently and had these nuggets of close-mindedness to share:

“The stories and the images that children store up in their minds from fairy tales have a very powerful imprinting effect on their tender young souls.”

“And the bottom line is that no responsible library should ever include a book like this on its shelves, and no responsible school should ever use this book as a part of its curriculum."

Unsurprisingly, Fischer's definition of "responsible" lies within a Judeo-Christian value system, one which he believes all families should adhere to.

“Christian parents don’t want to be concerned only about their own children, they want to keep this kind of warped literature out of the hands of other children as well.”

“And if parents want this book for their children, there’s nothing to stop them from going to Amazon and buying it with their own money. But taxpayer dollars should not be spent on tripe like this.”

“[Because] of the power [of] fairy tales, this book is a particularly pernicious form of sexually perverse propaganda.”

Thank you for the words of warning, Mr. Fischer. If you'll excuse me, I have a "pernicious" gay fairy tale to read.

American Family Association Tells Members to Send Back All Mail Bearing a Harvey Milk Stamp

The American Family Association is instructing its members to send back all the mail they receive that comes bearing a Harvey Milk stamp, in a comical pearl-clutching alert:

MilkThe Harvey Milk stamp was a result of seven years of lobbying by a self-described drag queen (a biological man with implanted breasts) and former transsexual prostitute Nicole Murray Ramirez of San Diego.

Honoring predator Harvey Milk on a U.S. postage stamp is disturbing to say the least. Harvey Milk was a very disreputable man and used his charm and power to prey on young boys with emotional problems and drug addiction. He is the last person we should be featuring on a stamp.

Unfortunately, the deed is done. The United States Postal Service honored a child predator at the whim of a drag queen.

Furthermore, the radical homosexual lobby will undoubtedly encourage businesses to use these stamps - all in the name of inclusiveness, political correctness and diversity. This is not diversity; this is perversity.

What you can do…

1. Refuse to accept the Harvey Milk stamp if offered by your local post office. Instead, ask for a stamp of the United States flag.

2. Refuse to accept mail at your home or business if it is postmarked with the Harvey Milk stamp. Simply write 'Return to Sender" on the envelope and tell your postman you won't accept it.


AFA Leader Says Mississippi Businesses Displaying Gay-Friendly 'Don't Discriminate' Stickers are Bullying Christians

Decal_mississippi

Several weeks ago we reported on 'If You're Buying, We're Selling'. a sticker campaign launched by a Mississippi group in response to the passage of the anti-gay 'religious freedom' bill allowing businesses to discriminate against gay people on the basis of religious beliefs.

The campaign allows businesses that don't discriminate to declare it by placing a sticker in their windows.

Buddy_smithBut have a good laugh at the nonsense that Buddy Smith, the executive vp of the American Family Association is spewing over it:

"It's not really a buying campaign, but it's a bully campaign," he says, "and it's being carried out by radical homosexual activists who intend to trample the freedom of Christians to live according to the dictates of scripture.

"They don't want to hear that homosexuality is sinful behavior – and they wish to silence Christians and the church who dare to believe this truth."

Smith offers a word of caution for those who do business with facilities posting the decal supporting homosexual activism. "If you do that, you are agreeing with these businesses that Christians no longer have the freedom to live out the dictates of their Christian faith and conscience," he tells OneNewsNow.


Bryan Fischer: The Poor Should Be 'Kissing The Ground' On Which The Rich Walk - VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-04-16 at 3.21.27 PM

American Family Association spokeshater Bryan Fischer, responding to a recent Wall Street Journal article reporting that the top 1% of Americans account for nearly 30% of all federal tax revenue, had this to say on his radio program:

So rather than the poor, the low-income, and the middle class being resentful of [the rich], they should be kissing the ground on which they walk. Who’s paying for the EBT cards? Who’s paying for food stamps? Who’s paying for the women and infant children program? Who’s paying for subsidized housing? Who’s paying for Medicaid? It is the top 1% So they ought to be given ticker tape parades once a week in all of our major cities to thank them for funding welfare for everybody.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP

AFA President Can Tell Who Is Gay Because ‘They Walk Like A Girl’ – VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-02-03 at 9.33.10 AM

As part of anti-gay wingnut Linda Harvey’s promotional tour for her new book Maybe He’s Not Gay: Another View on Homosexuality (which is now back on Amazon), Harvey appeared as a guest on American Family Association’s radio broadcast to help answer some hard-hitting questions about the gays

Right Wing Watch reports that one of the more pressing questions came from AFA president Tim Wildmon who, after declaring that when he is out in public he “can tell you who’s gay” just by looking at them, asked the following: 

"They have these effeminate, a lot of them, actions. They walk like a girl, a lot of them. I mean, I'm just being honest. This is what everybody says but maybe nobody talks about publicly, and it just makes you wonder, how did that develop, where does that come from?" 

In her response, Harvey blamed Hollywood’s efforts to “feminize” men by providing non-masculine male role models in advertisements for television events like the Super Bowl.

Watch the absurdity, AFTER THE JUMP

But what about you? Did you happen to see “ad after ad after ad” of effeminate men parading around during last night’s game? I just seem to remember a lot of beer and truck commercials...
