Last week, Bryan Fischer appeared on theDoveTV to promote the bogus AFA claim that the American Psychiatric Association had reclassified pedophilia as a sexual orientation. During the interview, host Perry Atkinson asserted that it was all part of an effort to desensitize people to the issue of pedophilia in order to normalize it … just as they did with homosexuality, Fischer responded.
“That’s exactly the strategy that homosexual activists pursued with homosexuality,” Fischer said. “Talk about homosexuality all the time; don’t let people think about the behavior itself because that will turn people off, but just talk about it all the time, get it into ordinary conversation, use that term over and over again because it desensitizes people to it. If they hear it often enough then, like you’re saying, they begin to think of it like something, well that’s just a normal part of conversation and then it’s not long before they start thinking well, that’s a normal behavior, that’s a normal sexual orientation. So it’s very deliberate on their part to kind of desensitize the American public on this issue”:
