The American Family Association (AFA) has been a long-time promoter of "traditional moral values" in the media, particularly television. AFA built its reputation on organizing boycotts against sponsors of TV shows with "anti-Christian" messages and ideas, or against companies it claims support the so-called "homosexual agenda" or marriage equality.

As we noted just last week, Bryan Fischer does not bother with things like having evidence or even knowing what he is talking about before going off on an rant on his radio program on some issue that he obviously does not understand. Like Glenn Beck, Fischer too seized on a report that President Obama had waived prohibitions in the Arms Export Control Act so that the US can provide chemical weapons assistance to Syria and used it to raise the possibility of impeachment: Don't miss the significance of this, ladies and gentlemen. We have a president who is breaking the law. ... MORE >

After the sudden resignation of Regent President Carlos Campo, Pat Robertson has resumed the role until a replacement can be found. Richard Land calls on conservative Christian not to grow despondent and give up but rather keep "fighting for a society that is less unjust, less pagan, and where people are welcomed and protected by law from conception until natural death and everywhere in between their entry into, and exit from, this life and where the freedom to practice and live one's faith is recognized and protected in law." Christians who support Glenn Beck... MORE >

Bryan Fischer began a segment on his radio broadcast today explaining that there are lots of Americans who love gays but are just "grossed out by what homosexuals do" and "want to see them delivered from the bondage and the deception and the darkness and the perverseness of that lifestyle." In fact, Fischer explained, these folks love gays so much that it saddens them to see people "falling prey to that disease; there's a sickness there, there is a pathology associated with homosexual behavior." "You know," Fischer added, "these are not happy... MORE >

As he does every day, Bryan Fischer began his radio program with a Bible reading and discussion, in this case, a passage from Psalm 135 which he cited not only as proof that God struck down the Native Americans so that the United States could be established by Christians, but also as proof that there is nothing that human beings can do to influence the climate. Verse 7 of the Psalm declares that "He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth; he sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses." As such, Fischer said, "that's why it is dumb... MORE >

The last time Bryan Fischer spoke at the Values Voter Summit was back in 2011, when organizers tried to hide his involvement in the conference because of his long history of unabashed bigotry. The effort failed as the decision to allow him to speak badly backfired when Mitt Romney, who was also speaking at the event, called out Fischer's bigotry from the stage and repudiated it. In 2012, VVS organizers wised up and dropped Fischer from the program altogether, though Fischer insisted at the time that he was not being shunned, but was simply giving up his normal speaking slot to AFA...

Fischer: Stopping Terry Jones' Koran-Burning 'Is Really No Different Than What The Pharisees Did To Jesus'

Yesterday, radical anti-Islam pastor Terry Jones was arrested while transporting nearly three thousand copies of the Koran that had been soaked in kerosene which he intended to burn in protest of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Jones was charged with illegally carrying a firearm and unlawful conveyance of fuel and the latter charge struck Bryan Fischer as laughable as he defended Jones' right to burn the Koran on his radio program today, saying that using this sort of trumped-up charge to stop him "is really no different than what the Pharisees did to Jesus."
