Bryan Fischer: “Homosexual Agenda” is America’s “Greatest Threat”

Jim Burroway

October 9th, 2011

Bryan Fischer, who followed GOP presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney to the podium during yesterday’s Values Voter Summit, delivered some of that poisonous language which Romney denounced.  Right Wing Watch has posted his entire talk here. During this portion of his speech, Fischer denounced “the homosexual agenda” as the “greatest greatest immediate threat to every freedom and right that is enshrined in the First Amendment”:

I believe we need a president who understands that just as Islam represents the greatest long range threat to our liberty, so the homosexual agenda represents the greatest immediate threat to every freedom and right that is enshrined in the First Amendment. It’s a particular threat to religious liberty….

We need a president who understands that every advance of the homosexual agenda comes at the expense of religious liberty. We need a president who understands that we must choose as a nation between homosexuality and liberty, because we cannot have both. A president who understands that we must choose between homosexuality and liberty, and who will choose liberty every time.

Okay, let me get this straight? Freedom can only exist as long as gay people do not have it??

That doesn’t make any sense. If one group does not have equal rights, or freedom…then no one really does. It’s called equal protection under the law you moron.

Bryan Fischer is just another False Prophet with bold, empty talk. “Ye shall know them by their fruit.”

No civilized, democratic country of which I am aware understands religious liberty as including liberty for the majority to discriminate against or harass a minority.

So only straight people deserve liberty. Are they making lists of all the LGBT people?

It’s revealing that Fischer’s previous statements about Mormonism earned him the ire of other VVS speakers, but not his homophobic statements.

Liberty; homosexual/ity; need; understands

You keep using these words, I do not think they mean what you think they mean.

So if gay people are the “biggest threat” to anything in these people’s minds…I wonder how they would handle living in a place like Afghanistan or Mexico where there are things going on that are genuine, physical threats to people’s freedom and lives??

Yeah, I bet then teh gays wouldn’t seem so scary.

Deranged. Christians are being targeted for murder in Egypt and Pakistan, and these bretheren in Christ say and do virtually nothing. But they are gravely threatened by the fact that 6 years ago, David Parker’s kid almost read King and King.

I’ve always loved Dickens, as well as Victor Hugo, their novels were social commentary on the evils of poverty and hypocrisy.

In fact, do any of you remember the warning the spirit of Christmas present gave when he revealed what was struggling under his cloak to Scrooge?

The children named ‘Ignorant’ and ‘Want’.
They were humanity’s children, and the most dangerous of all.

Guess Fischer and his ilk never get that memo.
Dumb shits.

It’s these people who are one of the biggest threats to America.

When will they learn that the “homosexual agenda” is the same as the “heterosexual agenda?” All we want to do is live our lives without fear. Our primary agenda seems to be making a living, maintaining a home, going to buy groceries, cleaning house on a regular basis, picking up kids at school to haul them to some other after school event, etc. etc. etc. Seems his agenda is only the spread of hate and misinformation.
