In recent weeks, it has seemed as if the American Family Association—already listed by the SPLC as an anti-LGBT hate group—has been on a mission to transform its public image from that of ordinary family-values advocates to a pack of wild-eyed radicals foaming at the mouth about their perceived enemies.
AFA spokesperson Bryan Fischer has been leading the way. In recent weeks on his radio program, Fischer has:
Declared it will be “the end of America” if Congress does not impeach President Obama.
Denounced anyone who uses the word “racist,” then insisted that Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder are “racists.”
Sided with radical Islamists in Iraq in calling Obama a “devil worshiper.”
Suggested on Twitter that accepting homosexuality leads to people to commit acts of necrophilia.
Said that LGBT people are inherently disqualified from holding public office.
Written an article in which he wonders if Robin Williams will go to heaven and insults Williams’s mother’s belief system (she was a Christian Scientist, Fischer says, and that is “a counterfeit form of religion that is neither Christian nor scientific”)
It’s not just Fischer, though. A couple of AFA analysts recently decried the recent editorial direction of Archie Comics, saying they now promoted “the occult and homosexuality.”
