Bryan Fischer, the public face of the certified anti-gay hate group, American Family Association (AFA), yesterday published an official statement for the AFA on Wednesday’s shooting at the Family Research Council — and included a shocking lie.
Ignore for a moment his comment, “The left’s war on religion and Christianity has now gone from symbolic to literal,” Fischer lies by stating:
Yet the SPLC has consistently used dangerously misguided language in classifying the Family Research Council as a “hate” group with absolutely no foundation. They have repeatedly and without cause demonized FRC, and have spent years stirring up anger in the homosexual community and directing that anger toward an organization whose only crime is to promote and defend the classic American values of faith, family and freedom.
Fischer, who believes it’s his duty to Christ to steal the children of gay people and same-sex couples and send them on an “Underground Railroad,” also stated:
Disagreement is not hatred. We don’t hate anyone. In fact, we love homosexuals enough to tell them the truth about the risks involved in their lifestyle choices. But for those who hate the truth, the truth will seem to be hate.
Fischer’s shocking disregard for not only truth, but for the intelligence of his readers is appalling.
The FRC often makes false claims about the LGBT community based on discredited research and junk science. The intention is to denigrate LGBT people in its battles against same-sex marriage, hate crimes laws, anti-bullying programs and the repeal of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has written extensively on the Family Research Council (FRC), and explained in many articles exactly why they added the Family Research Council to their list of anti-gay hate groups.
Perhaps Mr. Fischer would like to do some reading, courtesy of the folks at the Southern Poverty Law Center:
