LaBarbera Award: Bryan Fischer. Again.

Jim Burroway

August 5th, 2010

Disenfranchising LGBT Americans from the institution of marriage isn’t enough for the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer. He also thinks LGBT Americans should be legally banned from public office:

He is Exhibit A as to why homosexuals should be disqualified from public office. Character is an important qualification for public service, and what an individual does in his private sexual life is a critical component of character. A man who ignores time-honored standards of sexual behavior simply cannot be trusted with the power of public office.

He also thinks that this should have disqualified Elana Kagan from the Supreme Court:

This, by the way, is why Elana Kagan should not be elevated to the Supreme Court. Although she has not come out of the closet herself, her lesbian partner has, and Ms. Kagan’s sexual preference is an open secret in Washington circles. Her indulgence in sexually aberrant behavior should make her ineligible to serve on the highest court in the land.

Kagan’s lesbian partner? Where did this rumor come from?

Bryan Fischer is a repeat honoree. The Prop 8 decision has spawned two other award winners in the past twenty four hours so far. Prop 8 is really bringing out the crazy, isn’t it?

Man, they don’t know when to quit with the animus, do they?

“Homosexuals should be disqualified from public office.” Wow. What an American!

I wonder, does the National Organization for Marriage agree that “homosexuals should be disqualified from public office”?

Fischer and Larry Adams of Indianapolis would make fast friends.

I have five words for this ubernutjob: Abraham Lincoln and Joshua Speed.

Very well deserved LaBarbera Award.

The sexual habits of many straight politicians should ban them from office.

Well, following that logic, gays and lesbians should also be banned from holding any job that requires responsibility in the private sector or government as well. If that guy has his way, let me know…I’ll drop out of graduate school and take more naps because no one will hire me for my sexual orientation.

Wow, three consecutive La Barbera award posts…

I wonder if you guys have thought about renaming it to the Bryan Fisher award, because when it comes to unhinged, unglued, irrational rants, this guy takes the cake!
