Fischer: AFA Was So Confident That it Only Prepared a Statement Praising Boy Scouts for Retaining Ban on Gay Scouts
Several months before the Boy Scouts of America put the decision on ending the ban on gay scouts to a vote at the National Annual Meeting in May, Bryan Fischer boldly guaranteed that there is literally no chance that a vote to end the ban would ever pass.
As the vote neared, it became increasingly clear that there was a very real chance that the vote would, in fact, pass and pass easily ... which is exactly what happened.
But according to Fischer, who recently appeared on The Dove TV to discuss the issue, the American Family Association was so confident that the measure would fail that the only press release the organization prepared was one praising the Boy Scouts for upholding the original policy.
"We had to scramble to issue a press release, a statement, when we found out the vote had gone the other way," Fischer admitted, "so it was a shocker to a lot of people, including to those of us here at AFA":
