It is hard to imagine how Bryan Fischer can think that anyone would ever believe that all of the anti-gay rants he unleashes on an almost daily basis could be driven by anything other than bigotry … but yesterday on his radio program he attempted to convince everyone that he is really motivated by love and that it is those who support gays who are the true bigots:
That’s the reason we oppose the normalization of homosexuality, it’s not because we don’t like homosexuals it’s because we love them. I mean listen to me, if you love people, if you care about people, if they matter to you, their well-being is important to you, do you want to encourage them, do you want to support a lifestyle, do you want to subsidize and reward and provide special legal protections for behavior that’s gonna make them more likely to experience depression, suicidal ideation, homelessness and domestic violence? I mean that is cruelty to me, that’s the mark of somebody that does not care about human beings. Well, we care about human beings. We do not want human beings to get depressed, we don’t want them to commit suicide, we don’t want them to wind up homeless in the street, and we don’t want them to be victims of domestic violence. And we haven’t even talked about HIV-AIDS. That’s why we oppose homosexuality, because we are for homosexuals; we are for homosexuals, and that’s why we are against homosexuality and the normalization of homosexual behavior.
It’s bigotry to be against people that want people to be protected from suicide and depression and killing themselves and winding up on the street. I mean, how much more bigoted can you get than that to try to stop people that want to save folks from a self-destructive lifestyle? To me that is cruel and inhumane.
Fischer then proceeded to demonstrate just how much he loves gay by going off rant about how gay activists must be stopped and comparing them to his attention-obsessed cat and the residents of Sodom and Gomorrah:
One of the things we said about the homosexual lifestyle is it’s never enough with them. We’ve got a cat, her name is Emma and she always wants to be combed, she always wants to be stroked when we come in the door and she will pester us, she will hound us, she will whine, she will moan, she will complain until you follow her into the little room where her food bowl is and her water bowl is and you comb her. She’s a pest and it’s never enough. You leave the room one time and come back, she wants another comb even though you just did it. And she does not seem to be receptive to my efforts to correct her expectations on this subject.
Now homosexuals are like that. It is never, ever, ever enough with them. You go all the way back the Genesis 19, Lot’s got the two men as guests in his home; what do the homosexuals in town do? They surround his house – it says they pressed hard against his house trying to break the door down. I mean, they’re unstoppable, they are relentless and they have to be stopped. The cannot be reasoned with, homosexual activists – not talking about homosexuals in general, I’m talking about those that are pushing the homosexual agenda – they must be defeated, they must be stopped, they cannot be accommodated, they cannot be reasoned with. They must be stopped.
So, to recap: It is the people who criticize people like Fischer for wanting to criminalize homosexuality who are the real bigots because Fischer actually loves gays … whom he compares to his attention-starved cat that he clearly hates and the residents of Sodom and Gomorrah who sought to rape God’s angels.
