Bryan Fischer gives another loopy, dystopic warning that if same-sex marriage is legalized, Christianity will be criminalized and the Bible will be turned into Mein Kampf and banned as hate speech. Under those hate speech laws that do not exist, presumably.
But the first order of business, Fischer warned, would be to “turn the Bible into Mein Kampf” and prohibit it from being studied or read in schools or public places.
“Anyone who opposes the normalization of homosexuality will be treated as a racist,” Fischer warned. “Anyone, from that day forward, in America who opposes the normalization of homosexuality, who opposes same-sex marriage, will be lumped together by the Supreme Court with the Nazis, with the KKK, with slave holders, and with Aryan supremacists. The Bible will be classified as hate speech from the beginning to the end and it won’t be long before efforts are made to ban the Bible in public schools, to ban it in school libraries, to ban in it public libraries and to forbid the study of the Bible or the reading of the Bible on any campus in any public setting.”
Uh, Bryan…buying and reading Mein Kampf is perfectly legal in this country. It isn’t banned as “hate speech.” You know why? Because there is no such thing legally as “hate speech” in America. The First Amendment forbids it (as it should). The Supreme Court has, quite rightly, upheld the right of Nazis and the KKK to speak their minds, to march in protest, to hold rallies on public property even. But don’t let reality dampen your little marketing campaign of fear.
