More amusing hypocrisy from Bryan Fischer. Why, just yesterday he was railing about how Christians are losing their First Amendment rights. Today, he’s demanding that speech that is in favor of LGBT equality be made against the law. Because he loves free speech, right up until he doesn’t.
“We ought to be doing exactly the same thing with homosexuality,” he said. “That’s what Russia is doing. You can’t propagandize youth in Russia because they don’t want the youth of Russia to grow up thinking this is a normal alternative to heterosexuality. And homosexuality is not even against the law in Russia, just like smoking is not against the law in America but we do the same thing; we do not allow the propagandizing of America’s young to think that there is something glamorous and exciting and healthy about cigarette smoking.”
“If we’re going to be concerned across the board about human health, then we ought to have exactly the same concern for people that are considering going into the homosexual lifestyle,” he continued. “Let’s talk them out of it. Let’s persuade them against it. Let’s refuse to allow our young people to be propagandized in preschool, in kindergarten, in elementary school into thinking this behavior is normal. In teenagers, let’s not let them be propagandized, let’s not have gay-straight alliance clubs on our high school campuses.”
Bryan Fischer is like the Humpty Dumpty of bigotry, declaring that the First Amendment means whatever he wants it to mean at any given moment, neither more nor less.
