Allow us to present part one million in our never-ending series chronicling how the AFA’s Bryan Fischer can say whatever he wants about gays or Muslims, or both, and will never have to worry that anything he says will in any way threaten to undermine his standing with Republican leaders or within the Religious Right movement.
The most recent installment comes from his radio program yesterday where he declared that gay activists and radical Islamic fundamentalists are driven by the same “dark energy” and anti-Christ spirit:
I will not disabuse you – if you think there is a parallel between Islamic fundamentalism and the homosexual agenda, if they have the same tyrannical impulse – the same impulse of hatred, the same impulse of vitriol, the same impulse of the spirit of anti-Christ, anti-Christian spirit, a vitriolic hatred of all things that are connection to the name of Christ, I’m not going to disabuse you of that notion. I think it’s the same dark energy. Islam wants to completely silence and neutralize Christians everywhere in the world. That’s exactly what the homosexual agenda wants to do.
Do not mishear me on this because I am being very intentional on this: the same spirit of intolerance that’s at work in Islam is at work in the homosexual agenda. The same spirit of hatred, the same spirit of enmity toward anything connected with Christ, the same enmity, the same vitriol is at work in Islam and in the homosexual agenda.
