Bryan Fischer from the American Family Association must be lapping up water from the same toilet bowl as the North Shore Sloth, kicking the year off with outlandish ignorant statements decades out of date. Fischer even goes as far to say:
“homosexuals have no more right to engage in sodomy than paedophiles have to engage their sexual practices, that those who would like to engage in incest have a right to engage in their kind of practices, or people who want to have sex with animals, they don’t have a right to do that under the constitution.”
“Homosexuals do not have a constitutional right to engage in sodomy,” Fischer proclaimed, as first reported by Right Wing Watch. Noting that sodomy was a felony for the first 200 years of America’s history, he added, “It’s absurd in the extreme, it’s ridiculous, it’s ludicrous for homosexuals to claim that they have some kind of constitutional right to engage in sexually deviant behavior.”
“All men are created equal, but nobody, nobody, nobody is born gay,” Fischer, who also argued that Obama “displays ignorance” in his embrace of same-sex marriage and other LGBT rights and “doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” stated. “Nobody’s born that way!”
The Family Research Council‘s Peter Sprigg has objected to the president’s comparison of the 1969 Stonewall Inn riot — a watershed moment for gay rights — with similar moments from the women’s rights and Civil Rights movements.
“We as social conservatives do not agree with the president’s attempt to link the modern homosexual movement with the women’s rights movement or the civil rights movement for African Americans,” Sprigg said. “The irony is that homosexuals already have all the same civil rights as anyone else.”
Maybe Colin Craig and Bryan Fischer need to sit down together with a cup of tea and a gingernut and sing along to this song. Who knows, they might even loosen up a bit and take one up the clacker.
