Fischer: The Bachmanns Are Victims Of A Hate Crime Based On Their Heterosexual Orientation
Bryan Fischer has been dedicating a lot of airtime on his radio program this week to defending Michele and Marcus Bachmann in the wake of reports Marcus' clinic practices and promotes "ex-gay therapy."
And it was a topic to which he returned today, where he claimed that the Bachmanns were the victims of religious discrimination and a hate crime "based on their sexual orientation":
The Bible teaches that a change in sexual orientation is possible. This is a biblical principle, it is a biblical proclamation, it is a biblical assertion and Marcus Bachmann and his wife Michele Bachmann believe that. They believe that sexual orientation, a change in sexual orientation, is possible because that's what the Bible teaches. So that makes this attack on them a blatant example of religious bigotry.
They have been the victims of religious discrimination. They have been the victims of religious bigotry, of bigotry and discrimination and hatred that is directed against them because of their religious beliefs. In other words, this is bordering on a hate crime. You could also make the point that this bigotry against the Bachmanns is based on their sexual orientation. They have a heterosexual orientation and pro-homosexual bigots are trying to discriminate against them, they're trying to threaten them, they're trying to harass them because of their normal orientation, their heterosexual orientation.
