American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer on the TPP: “A Major Tool to Export Sexual Deviancy to the World”
You’ve probably heard that the House of Representatives (led by Democrats this time) rejected President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal today.
I think it’s a big mistake for the Democratic Party, but that’s not what this article is about. This time I’d like to draw your attention to someone else who’s celebrating the rejection of the TPP, but for reasons that aren’t even remotely sane.
American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer (yes, him again) is ecstatic to see the TPP fail, because he sees it as “a major tool to export sexual deviancy to the world.”
So on this issue at least, the Democratic Party is unfortunately aligned with the most reactionary forces in US politics.
“This bill is not about fast-tracking trade,” Fischer said. “This bill is about fast-tracking sin. So the bottom line is if somebody loves sexual deviancy, they are going to love Obamatrade … We ought to be critical of any Congressman who voted for this thing, it’s a morally dangerous bill.”
