Anti-gay teen activist and Bryan Fischer mini-me Caiden Cowger has taken to his blog to attack the decision of listed hate group the American Family Association (AFA) to remove Fischer from his post as spokesperson, reports Right Wing Watch.
In 2012, Cowger earned some major homophobe brownie points when he called homosexuality a “perversion” and said that President Obama is encouraging kids to be gay.
According to Cowger, the AFA has become lazy, “compliant with liberal organizations” and adverse to freedom of expression.
The try-hard teen also takes on the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) for listing the AFA as a hate group. The SPLC, he argues, is “a pro-atheism organization that has fought to remove the ten commandments from court house buildings, and has been recognized by 22 Republican lawmakers (among them Speaker Boehner and Representative Bachmann, three governors, and a number of conservative organizations) for ‘character assassination.’”
“Being a regular listener of Focal Point w/ Bryan Fischer, it is clear that his own organization…took his words out of context and attempted to discredit his views. [In a letter, General Counsel of AFA Patrick Vaughn] inappropriately cited remarks that Fischer said on his radio show along with his own personal interpretations, and then stated that the American Family Association disagreed with his views on those specific matters. This was completely unnecessary, because all of Fischer’s statements are already disclaimed on his radio show at the end of every broadcast, that his views do 'not necessarily reflect those of the American Family Association.'
“If you also notice, the lawyer did not completely quote Fischer’s statements; quotations were used in the same sentence, along with interpretations. That was extremely unprofessional.
“It appears that the American Family Association has become compliant with liberal organizations and while freedom of expression is still allowed on their radio network American Family Radio, it is no longer acceptable in their main organization.”
