Bryan Fischer, Boy Scouts on Parade, and Nazi Germany

Over the weekend, several Boy Scouts and leaders in Utah defied orders and marched in a pride parade wearing their scouting uniforms.  Bryan Fischer and his AFA colleague Randy Sharp discussed the story on Fischer's radio program yesterday and during the segment, Sharp said that one of the adult leaders was "barking military orders" at the Scouts during the parade.

Later in the program, Fischer returned to the topic and claimed that the entire thing reminds him of Nazi Germany, where the German version of the Boy Scouts was started as a "major homosexual recruiting effort":

Bryan Fischer Defends Erick Erickson From 'Dragon Lady' Megyn Kelly

Fox News commentator Erick Erickson has been under attack for the last several days for remarks he made earlier this week that men should play the dominant role in society with women serving in a complimentary role.

Not surprisingly, such views have not gone over well with a lot of people, including Fox News host Megyn Kelly who had Erickson on her program today where she ripped him for his sexist views.

Even less surprisingly, Bryan Fischer, who believes that God created women to be ruled over by their husbands, has now come rushing to Erickson's defense against that "harridan 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":

Fischer: Striking Down DOMA Will Lead to Incest, Pedophilia, Bestiality and the End of America

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer claimed that if the Supreme Court strikes down the Defense of Marriage Act, "it will be too late for America" as every state in the nation will then be forced to legalize polygamy, incest, pedophilia, and bestiality.

"It will be, at that point," Fischer said, "too late for America. We will have become Rome; we will not be slouching toward Gomorrah, we will be bull-rushing Gomorrah at warp speed":

Fischer: Women Were Designed To Be Ruled Over and Focus Their Energy on Making a Home for Their Children & Husband

On today's radio program, Bryan Fischer reacted to new research finding that women are either the sole or primary source of income in 40% of homes ... and his reaction was exactly what you'd expect from sexist, borderline theocrat as he cited the Bible to assert that women were designed to be ruled over by their husbands and "to focus her energies ... on making a home for her children and for her husband."

Fischer was especially alarmed by the prospect that working women might earn more than their husbands because it is an unhealthy dynamic because it undermines "his sense of worth as a male":

Fischer: LDS Church Supported Ending the Ban on Gay Boy Scouts in Order to Restore Polygamy

Last week, Bryan Fischer was trying to understand why the Mormon Church was supporting the decision by the Boy Scouts of America (or "Boy Sodomizers of America," as he calls them) to lift its ban on gay scouts and came up with a novel theory.

Admitting that he has literally "no evidence that this is the case," Fischer nevertheless speculated that the LDS Church has "gone soft on the homosexual agenda" because "as the homosexual agenda advances, the next domino to fall is going to be the ban against polygamy."

"The LDS leadership," Fischer said, "these people are smart, they're sharp, they're thinking all the time and I believe one of the reasons they may have gone soft on the homosexual agenda is that they believe that the homosexual agenda may be the secret to restoring polygamy to America and this would vindicate Mormon doctrine from the very beginning":

Fischer: The Boy Scouts Are Now the 'Boy Sodomizers of America'

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer weighed in on the decision by the Boy Scouts of America to drop its ban on gay scouts last night. 

Admitting that he was shocked by the vote since he was positive that it was going to be retained, Fischer declared that the BSA should change its name to the "Boy Sodomizers of America." Fischer eventually read a passage from the Book of Luke in which Jesus says it is better to have a stone tied around ones neck and be tossed into the sea than to lead a child to sin as a warning to BSA leaders that they will face the judgment of God for endorsing this change in policy:

Fischer Flashback: Chances of BSA Voting to End the Ban on Gay Scouts is 'Nonexistent'

Back in February, the Boy Scouts of America’s National Executive Board was entertaining the idea of ending the organization's ban on gay scouts but after an outcry of opposition by anti-gay activists, decided to postpone the decision and instead put it to a vote, allowing the members of the National Council to decide the question at the National Annual Meeting in May 2013.

Last night, that vote was taken and the decision to end the ban passed with over 60% of the vote.

It must be awkward for Bryan Fischer who, back in February when the decision to put it to a vote was made, rejoiced over the fact that now the resolution would never pass.

"The chances that this 1,400 National Council is going to remove the ban on homosexuality," Fischer guaranteed, "is nonexistent.  It does not exist.  It's infinitesimal. It is off the charts in remoteness. So in other words, ladies and gentlemen, this decision today means that the ban on homosexual scout masters and homosexual participants, that ban is going to be upheld. It's going to be defended. It's going to be in place. It's not going anywhere. It's not going to be changed. Sodomy is not going to be normalized in the Boy Scouts of America.  It's the end of the game.  This is game over.  This is the Super Bowl and the good guys have won.  Make no mistake about this, this is a huge win for the pro-family movement; it is a big, big, big setback for Big Gay":

Barber: It's Easy to Be a Conservative Christian Because 'We Just Simply Tell the Truth'

The other day, Bryan Fischer appeared on Alan Colmes' radio program where he refused to entertain Colmes' questions about whether he had ever experienced any gay impulses. It seemed like a relatively simple question, but Fischer insisted that he was not going to talk about his personal life ... but then decided to he needed to make it crystal clear on his own radio program today that he is a "lifelong, happily married heterosexual."

Fischer then welcomed one of the few other Religious Right activist who can match him when it comes to demonstrating relentless anti-gay hostility, Matt Barber, onto the program so the two could congratulate one another for being so courageous in standing for the truth of Christianity in the face of the Left, which is driven by nothing but irrational rage and hatred of the truth.

"That's why it's so easy to be a Christian," Barber explained, "that's why it's so easy to be a conservative because all we have to do is say what we believe and say what happens to be true ... We just simply tell the truth; they can't tell the truth because their entire worldview is rooted in a lie":

Bryan Fischer Won't Answer a Simple 'Yes' or 'No' Question

We seem to recall that after the last time Bryan Fischer appeared on Alan Colmes' radio program, he vowed never to appear on his show again.  But he must have changed his mind, because last night he returned to Colmes' program to discuss a variety of subjects, like his belief that President Obama will seek to forcibly disarm Christians and that homosexuality will be reponsible for the collapse of the western economy.

But things took a turn for the awkward near the end of the interview when Colmes asked Fischer about his theory that being selective in one's choice of sexual partners demonstrates that being gay is a choice.  When Colmes asked Fischer to explain this, Fischer said it simply proves that "people are not obligated to act on every sexual impulse that they experience," which prompted Colmes to ask Fischer if he had ever experienced any gay impulses ... but Fischer wasn't about to engage in that conversation:

Colmes: Have you ever had a gay impulse?

Fischer: (Laughing) Alan, I am not going to talk about that ...

Colmes: I'm just wondering ...

Fischer: Alan, I'm not going to go there. Give it a rest Alan ...

Colmes: It's a simple yes or no question.

Fischer: We're not going to talk about that.

Colmes: Because maybe if you've been able to overcome your gay impulses and you've been successful in doing it, you could be a model for other people you'd like to see act the same way.

Fischer: The focus here, Alan, is that everybody experiences sexual impulses that if they acted on those impulses, it would destroy them.

Colmes: Well, can you give me an example from your own life? What would be some of yours?

Fischer: You've experienced them ...

Colmes: I have?

Fischer: I've experienced them. Every man, every woman has experienced certain sexual impulses that, if they acted on them, if they conducted themselves by yielding to those impulses, it would destroy them. Ask Tiger Woods about that.

Colmes: I don't think I've ever had sexual impulses that would destroy the society or the culture or make me a deviant in some way. I honestly don't think that's ever happened, even in your eyes, so I'm surprised. I wonder what impulses you're talking about. If you've had them, I'd love to know what they are.

Fischer: Well the focus Alan is on sexual conduct, sexual behavior, not on sexual impulse ...

Colmes: So you won't tell me whether you yourself have been able to overcome a gay impulse?

Fischer: Alan, give it a rest.

We are guessing that after this exchange, Fischer will probably renew his vow never to appear on Colmes' radio program again.

Fischer: 'Homosexuality in the End Is Going to Be Responsible for the Collapse of the Western Economy'

Bryan Fischer is a big fan of Niall Ferguson’s bogus claim (which he has since renounced) that John Maynard Keynes did not care about how his economic policies impacted future generations because, as a gay man, he didn’t plan to have children.

The American Family Association spokesman took issue with Tom Kostigen of Financial Advisor, whom Fischer called a member of the “pro-sodomy gestapo, the gaystapo,” for criticizing Ferguson when he is in fact “exactly right” for blaming the 2008 financial crisis on the gay community.

“He was a narcissist, he was a hedonist and he was a homosexual,” Fischer said, “his view of history is very shortsighted, short-circuited, he cared about himself and his generation exclusively; so homosexuality in the end is going to be responsible for the collapse of the Western economy.”


Fischer: Obama Plans to Forcibly Disarm Christians

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer is convinced that President Obama’s pledge to “keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people,” a remark he made while speaking in Mexico City, is actually a veiled attempt to lay the groundwork to forcibly “disarm people of the Christian faith.”

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.’”

  • Finally, we won't hold our breath waiting for Bryan Fischer to correct the record after he spent several segments claiming that Saudi Arabia provided the US with a direct warning about Tamerlan Tsarnaev based on this article, which the Saudi government now denies.

Fischer: Being Selective in Choosing Partners Proves That Being Gay is a Choice

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer dedicated multiple segments to dismissing the news that Jason Collins has become the first openly gay athlete to play in the NBA.

Things took a rather odd turn when Fischer started taking calls from listeners, one of whom tried to claim that the fact that gays use discretion in picking sexual partners proves that they can control their behavior and thus being gay is really a choice.

And Fischer agreed, saying "anytime a homosexual exercises any sort of selectivity at all when it comes to intimate matters, he is proving that it is a matter of choice. Nobody is compelled to follow those impulses."

Of course, by this logic, then being straight must also be a choice, since straight people also exercise selectivity in choosing partners.

But eventually Fischer got back to the topic at hand, asserting that gays celebrate things "that ought to be matters of shame, humiliation, and embarrassment" and criticizing President Obama for supporting Collins and "openly celebrating sexual deviancy, calling evil good and calling good evil":

Fischer: Jason Collins' Coming Out Is Not Brave or Courageous, But 'Just a Shrewd Marketing Move'

Bryan Fischer dedicated a segment on his radio program today to once again discussing the news that Jason Collins has become the first active NBA player to announce that he is gay.  And Fischer is unimpressed, to say the least, saying that Collins is a free agent at the end of his career with no real prospects of playing again next season and so he thought this was a good opportunity for himself to garner some attention for himself and make money.

"Everybody is talking about how brave and courageous Jason Collins is and I'm going to submit to you that he's not being brave and courageous at all," Fischer declared. "This is just a shrewd marketing move to wave the rainbow flag right at the time when it can be of the most benefit to him. A year from now, when he's been out of the NBA for a year, nobody is going to care.  This is the only time this would be of any benefit to him ... This is why this is not courageous; he's become a hero to the deviancy cabal and their allies in the political world and academia and the media, like President Obama":

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/29/13

  • It is a genuine tragedy that this country never had the opportunity to witness the class that Sarah Palin would have brought to the Vice Presidency.
  • Even The Blaze is recognizing that Glenn Beck's 2123B timeline doesn't make much sense.
  • Tom Minnery says this nation may soon see a religious revial, in part because "religion makes people healthier" and so "given that health care costs are rising chronically, it may be that discounts on health insurance may be offered for those who attend church regularly or who otherwise demonstrate their religious participation."
  • Bryan Fischer continues to speculate that the military blocked the Southern Baptist Convention's website out of some sort of hostility toward Christians despite the fact that even the SBC says that was not the case.
  • Peter LaBarbera is not happy with news that the LDS church supports a proposal to drop the ban on gay Boy Scouts: "Look, this is a church which is outside of Christendom. Mormons can change their core beliefs and call it a divine transformation. They did it with polygamy; they did it with racism – and now I'm afraid, I'm very afraid, that they're going to do it with homosexuality.”
  • Finally, the AFA's Ed Vitagliano is also a little worked-up over the prospect that the Boy Scouts may soon allow gay scouts: "For the tolerance gurus there is a secular morality that is just as absolute as that preached by any Bible-thumper behind a pulpit. It is a pagan sexual ethic rooted in moral relativism with the taproot deeply embedded in Darwinian evolution. Its teachers have their own unbending laws cut into stone and pronounced from on high. Their prophets hurl jeremiads at the unrepentant, who are relegated to a this-worldly hell consisting of the drying up of corporate funding, the disdain and downright persecution of the civil state, banishment to the fringes on university campuses, and the sneering mockery of Hollywood. For these pioneers of the brave new world, people who practice sodomy are the saints and Christians are the sinners. And humanist stormtroopers have spent the last 60 years hunting down and driving out the infidels."

Fischer: No NBA Team Should Sign Jason Collins Because He Will Be 'Eyeballing' Players in the Shower

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer is joining other anti-gay activists in attacking Jason Collins, the NBA player who today came out as gay. Fischer said that NBA players and their wives would loudly resist being on a team with Collins out of fear that he will be “eyeballing” them in the shower.

  • Bryan Fischer says he only blocks people on Twitter for using profanity, which is a total lie since we have never used profanity but he has blocked us.
  • James Robison warns that "the American people are being asked to vote for idolatry, accept it, embrace it, and approve it."
  • Finally, Mike Huckabee is making it his mission "to do everything I can to expose the Southern Poverty Law Center for the fraud that it is."
