The Bryan Fischer award is given to those who display a staggering lack of self-awareness, accusing their opponents of their own worst sins. I’m pretty sure Matt Barber has won this one before but he deserves it again for this column explaining why he calls gay rights activists “homofascists.”
Many Christians have been warning for years that the radical homosexual activist lobby is made up of Christian-hating fascists who are in rebellion against both God and nature, who are hell-bent on criminalizing Christianity and pushing to the fringes anyone who publicly acknowledges natural human sexuality and the age-old, immutable institution of legitimate marriage as created by God.
Sadly, many people, even many Christians, think that I and others are using hyperbole when we refer to this sexual anarchist “LGBT” movement as “homofascist” or the “Gaystapo.” I hope you’ll think again. It’s time to wake up and smell the impending anti-Christian persecution. It’s fully at hand.
BarbWire contributor Laurie Higgins, commenting on the Washington Examiner story below, summed it up well in an email tonight:
When those he opposes use boycotts to pressure companies, that’s “homofascism.” When the Christian right does it, it’s Godly people exercising their unalienable right to speak their mind. Bryan Fischer will be so proud of him.
