Regular readers know that last Friday, after two posts highlighting American Family Association’s American Family Radio General Manager Buster Wilson’s ludicrous statements that gay marriage will lead to people marrying buildings, dogs, and cars, Wilson, via his blog, invited me to discuss the issue on his radio station.
I’ve declined, as you can see from the email I sent today, above.
The American Family Association is an SPLC-certified hate group. They are not interested in an honest debate, rather, they are interested in doing what they exist to do: attack the LGBT community, spread lies and falsehoods about LGBT people, and ensnare as much money from their shrinking base as possible, until they can no longer sustain their operations.
If reasonable-minded people disagree with this assessment of the AFA, it show be sufficient proof that Wilson, immediately prior to his invitation to me, called The New Civil Rights Movement a “homosexual hate group.” I’ve been called many things in my 49 years, but a hate group? What proof does Wilson — whose own employer has met all the published criteria of a hate group, and thus, received the “award” — have, I ask? There is none.
Most folks who read The New Civil Rights Movement know all-too-well the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer, who has a daily talk show that Wilson, in his role as the General Manager for American Family Radio oversees.
Bryan Fischer has said gays are Nazis, suggested that millions of Americans contracted HIV/AIDS because of the existence on Congressman Barney Frank, gays are not born gay, the Tea pArty ended slavery in America, gays are a threat to national security, public health, and traditional marriage is necessary for US survival, the same hate, vitriol, and anti-Christ spirit is at work in Islam and in the “homosexual agenda,” Chaz Bono, “is a surgically-mutilated female,” “Let’s have a state law that provides some kind of fine for anyone who has unprotected homosexual sex,” called for the re-criminalization of homosexuality in every state, homosexuality “is a death sentence, it’s not a lifestyle, it’s a death style,” California is going to have a hard time fulfilling SB 48 because “by definition,” gays cannot be role models, the Norway terrorist would have made a good Muslim but a bad Christian, “Hitler hiomself was a homosexual,” “we cannot have the homosexual agenda and liberty. Those two things are incompatible,” criticism of and Marcus and Michele Bachmann over the practice of “ex-gay therapy” is both religious bigotry and a hate crime, “homosexual bigots commit hate crimes,” “Christophobic gay activists” want to “continue a campaign of threats, harassment…,” “homosexual activists” who attack him for his hate speech and lies against theLGBT community are committing a “hate crime,” “fidelity in same-sex relationships is virtually unheard of,” the Nazi Party was formed in a gay bar in Munich,” once DADT is repealed, neither gays nor straights will sign up for the military, forcing a draft, Christian military officers are about to become victims of “systematic hate crimes,” by gays, and “the homosexual agenda is just like Islam.”
And all that’s just since May of this year.
As I said, I see no benefit to “debating” with anyone who supports these lies.
