Bryan Fischer: 90% of Americans Would Find Gay Sex Disgusting if They Actually Thought About It

Just days ago, Pastor Thabiti Anyabwile wrote about how, if Christians only described gay sex graphically, then we’d all be grossed out and work to eradicate the gay gene (or something like that).

Even before that, San Antonio Councilwoman Elisa Chan made remarks (in a private setting) “calling homosexuals ‘disgusting’ and saying that gays should not be allowed to adopt children.” She refuses to apologize for what she said, which makes sense, since she obviously still believes it.

Now, right-wing blowhard Bryan Fischer is jumping into the mix, praising Chan and reiterating this unbelievably silly myth that describing how homosexuals have sex will help turn the tide in his direction:

“I would guarantee you,” Fischer said, “90% of the American people, if they would stop and think about what actually happens in homosexual sexual behavior, they would find it disgusting.”

Well, I’m proud to be part of the fictional 10%…

Fred Clark was referring Anyabwile when he said it the other day but it applies to Fischer, too, and it’s just perfect:

He imagines what gays and lesbians may do together in private, savoring every lurid detail. And then he suggests that other people’s private acts are somehow more shameful than his public fascination with other people’s private acts.

That’s the crux of it. He’s disgusted by it, so we must all feel the same way, right? No. Our minds are not so deranged that the mere mention of a sexual act that we wouldn’t participate in is inherently icky. (Though, to be fair, most sexual acts that gay men and women do together are really no different than what straight couples do, too.)

It’s just hatred and bigotry, pure and simple.
