Fischer: Discrimination Against Homosexuality Is Not Discrimination Against People

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer praised Gordon College in Massachusetts for maintaining its policy prohibiting students, faculty and staff from engaging in "homosexual practice."

Fischer, who has long favored the criminalization of homosexuality, hailed the move, declaring that this is the "good kind" of discrimination that should underlie all of our public policy while laughably asserting that this sort of discrimination does not target people, but simply behavior.

"Discrimination against sexually immoral behavior is good," he said. "I'm not talking about discrimination against people here, not even talking about discrimination against people based on their sexual orientation. It's based on their behavior. We discriminate against sexually immoral behavior, not against the person because unless they act out on it, unless they do something, unless the commit an immoral act they're not properly the subject of these kind of policies. But if they engage in that kind of behavior, then it's appropriate that be a subject or a matter for discrimination of the good kind":
