Bryan Fischer, being an aficionado of aggrieved hyperbole and totally ignorant of virtually everything, declared on this radio show this week that the “homosexual agenda” was the greatest threat to liberty that America has ever faced in its entire history.
“The homosexual agenda represents the greatest single threat to religious liberty we have ever seen in the history of our existence as a nation,” he declared. “In fact, it’s the greatest threat to liberty of all kinds, whether it is freedom of religion, whether it is freedom of speech, whether it is freedom of the press, whether it is freedom of association, all of the rights that are enshrined in the First Amendment are threatened by the active, aggressive homosexual lobby and the homosexual agenda.”
Hey Brian, there are a few million slaves who would like to speak to you. And millions of women who were denied the right to vote for a century. And gay rights are only a threat to liberty if you define liberty as your ability to deny liberty and equality to others, which is, of course, exactly how Fischer defines it.
