Fisher Goes Too Far: Blog Post Changed to Remove "Rut Like Rabbits" Comment

Yesterday, we noted that the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer had posted a piece on the AFA blog asserting that welfare needed to be ended because all it did was give money to African Americans who "rut like rabbits":

Welfare has destroyed the African-American family by telling young black women that husbands and fathers are unnecessary and obsolete. Welfare has subsidized illegitimacy by offering financial rewards to women who have more children out of wedlock. We have incentivized fornication rather than marriage, and it’s no wonder we are now awash in the disastrous social consequences of people who rut like rabbits.

But sometime after the post went up, the AFA changed the paragraph and removed the "rut like rabbits" statement while adding language to make it appear that Fischer wasn't singling out African Americans.  The paragraph now reads

Welfare has destroyed the African-American family by telling young black women that husbands and fathers are unnecessary and obsolete. Welfare has subsidized illegitimacy by offering financial rewards to women who have more children out of wedlock. We have incentivized fornication rather than marriage, and it’s no wonder we are now awash in the disastrous social consequences of those who engage in random and reckless promiscuity, whether they are Caucasian, Hispanic, or African-American.

Suspecting that this might happen, we saved a copy of the original webpage so that the AFA could not succeed in scrubbing Fischer's statement:
