Fischer Comes Unglued Over Supreme Court Arguments

I have to confess that I am so enjoying watching the Christian right absolutely lose their minds over the prospect of the Supreme Court striking down state laws banning interracial marriage. They’re just working themselves up in to a collective conniption and it’s so much fun to see. Bryan Fischer, entertain me for a minute:

Yesterday on “Focal Point,” Bryan Fischer got heated during a rant about Justice Anthony Kennedy, whom he believes will tip the balance in favor of marriage equality advocates at the Supreme Court.

“I got worked up about that but that just tees me off, I cannot tell you the level of aggravation that I got that this thing is even before the Supreme Court, let alone that one man, one man, is going to be allowed to tyrannically dictate to everybody else in America what our definition of marriage ought to be,” Fischer said. “It’s inexcusable, it’s reprehensible, it’s obscene, it’s vulgar to a level that I cannot even begin to put into words.”…

“Your children will be brainwashed, they will be indoctrinated into the entire homosexual agenda,” he declared. After blasting homosexuality as a “sexual abnormality and sexual perversity,” Fischer said that gay rights advocates “are not even really about equality, they are about supremacy. They want it to be gay rights über alles, they want gay rights to supersede any right to religious liberty.”

If every gay bar in the country isn’t serving a drink made with the tears of bigots, they’re missing out on a big opportunity.

    Back in the sixties ‘blog pots’ were all we had (not that I remember the sixties)!!

    Ah yes, the legendary dictator Blog Pot, leader of the Khmer Redditors.

  • felicis

    Did he actually talk about the substance (or lack thereof) of any of the arguments? Or did he just keep screaming “OMG Gay Marriage Sodom and Gomorrah Cats and Dogs Gay Agenda Marxist Islamist Agenda 21 Nazis!!11!”?

    Why do I ask questions that I already know the answer to?

    that one man, one man, is going to be allowed to tyrannically dictate to everybody

    Uh, no, Bryan … it takes at least five justices to “tyrannically dictate to everybody” what the Constitution says.

    richardelguru@3: So you were there,too?

    Fischer comes unglued…

    Well I do keep getting these flashbacks…

    …let alone that one man, one man, is going to be allowed to tyrannically dictate to everybody else in America what our definition of marriage ought to be.

    So, if not one man, then how many would be the correct number? A hundred? A thousand? Maybe 54 per cent of the population of the country? Done.

    “…the Supreme Court, let alone that one man, one man, is going to be allowed to tyrannically dictate to everybody else in America what our definition of marriage ought to be,” Fischer said.

    Well, actually no one is going to tell you what your definition of marriage is. You are perfectly free to define marriage any way you want and recognize only those marriages you choose to.

    On the other hand, by denying other people the right to marry, you, in fact, are trying to “tyrannically dictate” to other people what their definition of marriage ought to be.

    Just sayin’, is all.

    @8: there’s at least two ironic twists regarding the right’s “one man” complaint. One: we have arrived at the “one man” situation because both parties insist on trying to appoint predictable ideologues to the court as much as possible. If the parties appointed moderate/politically neutral justices, we wouldn’t currently have a court of 4 vs 4 with one swing vote. Secondly, that ‘one man’ they’re complaining about guiding the country is a Reagan appointee.

    He still hasn’t gotten a grasp on reality, I see.

    It’s not a specific drink. They only use it when they run out of vermouth, and need something else to make drinks taste awful.

    Tyrannically – you keep using that word…

    Fischer Comes Unglued Over Supreme Court Arguments

    Huh — I was under the impression he came unglued as delivered in the original package.

    “I got worked up about that but that just tees me off, I cannot tell you the level of aggravation that I got that this thing is even before the Supreme Court, let alone that one man, one man, is going to be allowed to tyrannically dictate to everybody else in America what our definition of marriage ought to be,” Fischer said.

    “Because that one man isn’t me,” he added wrathfully.

    I think it’s cute that Ed thinks Fischer was ever glued in the first place.

  • jimnorth

    “…let alone that one man, one man…”

    Shouldn’t that be one man, one woman?

    It’s not that he is unglued but more that his head is filled with a liquid slurry of individual brain cells and cerebral fluid. Having all the individual cells entangled and entwined into a functioning unit was just a little too gay for him to stand. He likely used one of those shopping network doohickeys for scrambling eggs in the shell.

    So, just like Terry Schiavo?

    What? Too soon?

  • blf

    So what, exactly, was this nutter glued to? A large pile of rotting shite, I assume. Has that been safely disposed of, or do we now have two unglued large piles of rotting shite…

    “let alone that one man, one man, is going to be allowed to tyrannically dictate to everybody else in America what our definition of marriage ought to be”

    Keeping in mind that Adolf Fischsticks wants to put people in prison for pro-gay or anti-religious speech, what’s this bastard’s definition of “tyrannical” even look like?

    “it’s obscene, it’s vulgar to a level that I cannot even begin to put into words”

    But enough about the fact that you have a radio show and lie every fucking day on it.

    “they want gay rights to supersede any right to religious liberty.”

    Remember, religious liberty for Adolf here is liberty for Christians only, not for Muslims or non-believers, not the freedom to disagree with his fundamentalist filth. It’s the freedom to refuse service, as long as you’re refusing service to gays and not to fundies.
