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:

Center For Inquiry Condemns Attacks on Coptic Christians and Muslims

You may have heard about how Coptic Christian churches have been under attack in Egypt — just read the lede in this Wall Street Journal article:

Osama Makram Amin woke to the sound of gunfire, looked out his window and saw what he says were young men throwing gasoline bombs at the nearby Coptic Christian church.

Awful stuff. Seriously awful.

The Center For Inquiry has issued a statement condemning the religion-based violence:

Tennessee Church Kicks Out Longtime Members for Their Quiet Support of Gay Daughter’s Civil Rights

Police detective Kat Cooper (photo, right) became sort-of-famous in Tennessee earlier this month when she petitioned the city of Collegedale, a suburb of Chattanooga, to extend partner benefits to her wife, Krista (on left), whom she’d married in Maryland in May of this year.

“It should be of no importance to my employer if my lifelong commitment is made to a man or a woman — both are equal,” Cooper said [addressing the city commissioners]. “Small ripples can precipitate huge waves. In this case, a great opportunity lies in your hands.”

The commissioners voted on the matter on August 5, and the outcome, 4 votes to 1, was yes, fair’s fair, let’s do it. Case closed, right?

From the city’s perspective, yes. But for Ken Willis, the minister at Cooper’s family’s church, not so much.

Alabama State Senator Files Unnecessary ‘Merry Christmas’ Bill

Remember when Texas Governor Rick Perry signed a law making it legal to say “Merry Christmas” in public schools — even though no one ever said it was illegal — and also allowing for religious holiday displays?

Now, Alabama State Senator Gerald Allen (R-What else?) is set to to pass a similar bill in his state:

Allen said he is bringing the bill to protect schools from litigation.

“I’m convinced that there is an undeniable secular progressive agenda to remove all religious freedoms from the public square and that includes our public schools,” Allen said.

Herman Cain: America ‘Was Conceived on Biblical Principles’… Just Look at ‘In God We Trust’ on Our Money!

Remember 2012 GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain?

Of course you remember Herman Cain. Everyone remembers Herman Cain.

Well, that guy has responded to American Atheists’ recent victory in which they were able to donate atheist literature to Georgia state parks since the parks were already allowing in donated Bibles.

Does he support the atheists or oppose them?

It’s hard to tell. He refers to the lawsuit threat as “frivolous” while at the same time arguing that it’s the atheists’ right to place those books in the cabins.
