Bryan Fischer Calls LGBT Activists ’Leeches’
The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer is back in the spotlight for once again spewing anti-gay remarks.
As reported by Right Wing Watch, Fischer targeted the LGBT community, calling New York activists that oppose plans to open a Chick-fil-A in the city "leeches."
"The point here is that with the homosexual lobby, you cannot ever give them enough. Don’t even try," Fischer said in a recent broadcast of his show "Focal Point." "There’s no point in offering them some kind of appeasement in the hopes that they will leave you alone, that they will leave you in peace. It won’t work."
Earlier this year Fischer voiced his problems with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ performance at the Grammy Awards, where the duo performed their gay marriage jam "Same Love." During the performance, Queen Latifah married more than 30 couples, both gay and straight, and Madonna made an appearance. That didn’t sit too well with Fischer, however.
"The heart of the Grammy-thing last night was this big number -- Queen Latifah, deputized by L.A. County apparently to perform wedding ceremonies -- she performed wedding ceremonies in the middle of the Grammy ceremony for 34, 36 couples, a number of whom were homosexual couples" he said. Fischer went on to call the performance an "abomination," asserting his opinion that same-sex marriage harms children as though it was a documented fact.
"If you care about children, this thing should appall you," he added. "Gay marriage is bad for children. In fact same-sex parenting -- I’m going to be very direct here -- same-sex parenting is a form of child abuse."
Fischer also had a problem with the other musicians, including Beyonce, who kicked off the Grammy’s with "Drunk in Love," featuring husband Jay Z.
