There is no more openly bigoted Religious Right leader active today than the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer … and yet that doesn’t stop Republican members of Congress and presidential hopefuls from appearing on his radio program on a regular basis.
Last year, Fischer made news when he asserted that Adolf Hitler surrounded himself with gay soldiers because “he could not get straight soldiers to be savage and brutal and vicious enough to carry out his orders.”
Yesterday, he went even further (if such a thing is possible) and asserted that gays are literally Nazis and that they will “do the same thing to you that the Nazis did to their opponents in Nazi Germany”:
The homosexual agenda is just like Islam: there is no room for dissent, there is no room to leave, once you’re in, you can’t leave. Muslims won’t let you leave, homosexuals won’t let you leave – if you leave, they claim you’re faking it, so there’s no way out. There’s no freedom of choice, there’s no freedom of religion – if you have religious views about homosexual behavior, you are squashed.
I mean, ladies and gentlemen, they are Nazis. Homosexual activists, when it comes to freedom of speech, are Nazis. When it comes to freedom of religion, they are Nazis. There is no room in their world for dissent, there is no room in their world for disagreement, there is no room in their world for criticism. You criticize homosexual behavior, they tag you as a bigot and a homophobe and then they got to work to silence you just like the Roman Catholic Church did in the days of Galileo – it’s no different; it’s the Spanish Inquisition all over again.
Ladies and gentlemen, they are Nazis. Do not be under any illusions about what homosexual activists will do with your freedoms and your religion if they have the opportunity. They’ll do the same thing to you that the Nazis did to their opponents in Nazi Germany.
