Speaking yesterday with a caller who identified himself as a “non-practicing homosexual,” Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association reaffirmed his belief that homosexuality “is a matter of choice.” When the caller asked if Fischer “could have sex with a man,” Fischer was flummoxed and said he would never even begin to think about having gay sex.
Bryan Fischer of the hate group American Family Association again inadvertently wears his fantasies on his sleeve when he speculates that Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin are having a “lesbian affair,” which would explain why neither one of them really give a rip about their respective husbands peccadilloes.
One of many reasons why, other than his monumentally ignorant bigotry, there is a hug ick factor in very mention of the name “Bryan Fischer.”
We should note that Bryan didn’t come up with this idiotic idea all by himself, though. Bryan is recycling a 2-year old conspiracy theory first floated by … YES! The Dumbest Man on the Internet, Jim Hoft.
In December 2011 this brain dead fantasy was a featured LGF post: Jim Hoft’s Idiotic Post of the Week: Obama Photoshopped Into Situation Room.
And so the circle of derp will be unbroken — from the febrile imagination of Jim Hoft directly to the religious fanatic ravings of Bryan Fischer. Conspiracies without end, amen.
Sandy Rios, a Fox News contributor and American Family Association radio talk show host today compared the love two gay men feel for each other to the “love” kidnapper, rapist, and murderer Ariel Castro felt for the women he kept captive as slaves in his home.
Rios was speaking with Chicago pastor Erwin Lutzer, who insisted that pedophiles also “love” the children they rape.
Lutzer also claimed that same-sex marriage leads to the destruction of the family and “confusion” for children.
Both were arguing that only one man, one woman love is real love, and that the love same-sex couples feel is different from heterosexual love, which is both offensive and ludicrous.
The American Family Association also hosts Bryan Fischer, and is a certified anti-gay hate group.
Oh sure, you already know Bryan Fischer is one of the premier religious right bigots, but you probably didn’t realize how downright weird he is.
In this clip from his American Family Association webcast he explains how a demon was tormenting “some children” by threatening to kill their parents, until Fischer came to the rescue and saved the day with the sheer power of his godliness. (Midway through the story, it changes from “some children” to “the girl.”)
And Fischer himself is not immune to attacks from disembodied malignant presences. He says witches once sent demons on a midnight mission to grab his ankle and pull him out of bed. (He doesn’t say what the demons planned to do after this ankle-yanking maneuver, and I think it’s really better not to speculate.)
As part of their diabolical plot they also gave Fischer a monumental case of cotton mouth (demons think of everything), but he was finally able to fend off the ghastly creatures by croaking out the name of … you guessed it … Jeebus.
The sad thing: there are actually more than a few people who will watch this and believe every word.
Religious right caveman Bryan Fischer is very concerned about the hordes of dusky-skinned savages who would pour into America if we ever enact immigration reform, but he’s not just complaining; Mr. Fischer has a solution, and that solution is “procreation,” ladies. His advice to conservatives: “Get busy.”
“The whole argument for immigration is, ‘We got to get workers.’ Why? Because native-born Americans simply are not reproducing at rates fast enough to increase the population. So we know what we need to do. Let’s get busy.”
I will leave you, gentle reader, with the horrifying image of Bryan Fischer “getting busy.”
Fox News contributor and redstate.com founder Erick Erickson’s asinine statement that men should dominate women — because SCIENCE! — got him in hot water with the queen of the Fox News blondes, Megyn Kelly.
When Kelly challenged him with, “Who made you scientist in chief?” Erickson wimped out, weaseled around and tried to dial it down.
But stand back, Erick. Here comes American Family Association spokesbigot Bryan Fischer to show us how a real right wing caveman treats uppity wimminfolk like Megyn Kelly.
Calling Kelly a “feminist on steroids,” Fischer said she was “resentful,” “angry,” “hostile,” and “bitter” to these “poor guys” who were just trying to defend the biblical view of the gender roles.
Fischer went on to say that Kelly was driven by an unhealthy, bitter “angry feminist energy” before finally just calling her a “dragon lady.”
President Obama said in Mexico City yesterday that he wants to “keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people,” sending American Family Association spokesloon Bryan Fischer into a feverish paranoid fantasy in which Obama’s jack-booted thugs burst into the homes of Christians, grab their guns, and label them as terrorists.
(Insert sound of cuckoo clock.)
Fischer said that Obama is “setting up the stage to take guns away from evangelicals” and classify them as terrorists: “‘You believe in Jesus Christ?’ ‘Yes I certainly do sir.’ ‘Give me your gun, we’re coming into your house and taking your guns, you’re dangerous, you’re a threat you’re an extremist, you’re a terrorist threat, we can’t let you have a gun.’”
“Ladies and gentlemen,” Fischer declared, “we should be under no illusions here; President Obama is not our friend, President Obama is our enemy.”
What do you think follows from this in the warped mind of the wingnut? What are people supposed to do to their enemies?
And remember, Fischer’s American Family Association is an SPLC recognized hate group since 2010.
I hope the Secret Service is keeping close tabs on Fischer and his brethren in the AFA.

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer helpfully explains that Satan chooses to activate his influence over mankind when the moon is full.
Snark fails me.
