Did you know that by reading this site, you are in a "sinister partnership with nefarious forces" and "part of an evil conspiracy"? Well if radical anti-LGBT activist Bryan Fischer is to be believed, you totally are:
While most homosexuals aren’t in some kind of sinister partnership with nefarious forces, the same cannot be said of homosexual activists. Wikipedia lists no less than 72 groups in the United States alone whose mission is to normalize the “infamous crime against nature,” to demand special rights on the basis of aberrant sexual behavior, to radically redefine marriage and the family, and to demonize pro-family organizations as “hate groups” for disagreeing with them.The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) are in fact part of an evil conspiracy to celebrate behavior that according to Romans 1 is “contrary to nature,” consists of “shameless acts” and causes participants to “receiv(e)...in themselves the due penalty for their error.”
So basically, in Bryan's world, you can be gay without being sinister or evil. It's just when you step up and defend your life against crude rhetoric like his and cruel actions like his employer's that you cross over in to the "nefarious" realm. You're allowed to share Bryan's oxygen just as long as you don't respect yourself (/disrespect his discriminatory crusade).
It's also hysterical (yet somehow not funny) to see Bryan continuing the ridiculous idea that he and his AFA simply "disagree" with LGBT rights groups. This is Bryan Fischer:
-- On multiple occasions, called for an “Underground Railroad to deliver innocent children from same-sex households”
-- Says gay people must be criminalized and treated like drug addicts; even asks (at 2:29): "Do you put them to death, do you lock 'em up...what do you do?"
-- Directly links homosexuality to pedophilia and bestiality: "We should discriminate against unnatural and aberrant sexual behavior, whether pedophilia, bestiality, or homosexuality."
-- Said that by overturning the Defense of Marriage Act and throwing marriage back to California, the Supreme Court is "doing to us what the Nazis did to the Jews"
-- Says about LGBT activists: "We cannot accommodate, we can't compromise, we can't find middle ground. They cannot be reasoned with, they cannot be compromised with, they cannot be dialogued with—they can only be defeated!"
-- Says: "In the wake of what we've seen at Penn State, that alone out to be enough to say that, look: we are not going to put children in same-sex households—we are not going to adopt them into same-sex households. We are not going to give custody, if somebody goes into the homosexual lifestyle after siring children—bringing children into the world with an opposite-sex partner—they are not going to get custody of these children. If they have visits with those kids, they are going to be supervised visits. We cannot trust the sexual integrity and innocence and purity of those kids with those who have same-sex preferences. The risk is far, far too high.
-- In wake of Sandy Hook tragedy, suggested lack of God, prayer, and guns was to blame
-- Has dedicated several show segments to denying that HIV causes AIDS
-- Claims: "The homosexual agenda represents the single greatest modern threat to freedom of religion and conscience.”
-- Says: "The real haters are homosexuals. The real venom is coming from those that support the homosexual agenda, either homosexual activists, homosexuals, or those that support the homosexual agenda. They are the real haters. There is a heterophobic hatred, there is a Christophobic hatred that is just seething, there's a dark, venomous, demonic hatred that is in the homosexual community."
-- Says: "The Democrats as a party, I believe, they want slaves, they want Americans to be as slavishly dependent upon the central government as slaves were upon their masters in pre-Civil War days, that’s what they want.” Claims African-Americans "stay on the Democratic plantation" because they are "like drug-added addicts and the Democrat Party has gotten them addicted to welfare benefits."
-- Claims: "The homosexual agenda represents a clear and present danger to virtually every fundamental right given to us by our Creator and enshrined for us in our Constitution."
-- Asserts: “Ladies and gentlemen, they [gay people] are Nazis (see video at :24). Do not be under any illusions about what homosexual activists will do with your freedoms and your religion if they have the opportunity. They’ll do the same thing to you that the Nazis did to their opponents in Nazi Germany.”
-- Claims: "So Hitler himself was an active homosexual. And some people wonder, didn't the Germans, didn't the Nazis, persecute homosexuals? And it is true they did; they persecuted effeminate homosexuals. But Hitler recruited around him homosexuals to make up his Stormtroopers, they were his enforcers, they were his thugs. And Hitler discovered that he could not get straight soldiers to be savage and brutal and vicious enough to carry out his orders, but that homosexual solders basically had no limits and the savagery and brutality they were willing to inflict on whomever Hitler sent them after. So he surrounded himself, virtually all of the Stormtroopers, the Brownshirts, were male homosexuals."
-- Says: “Islam is a totalitarian political ideology. It is as racist as the KKK. ... Allowing a mosque to be built in town is fundamentally no different than granting a building permit to a KKK cultural center built in honor of some King Kleagle.”
-- More: "It is time, I suggest, to stop the practice of allowing Muslims to serve in the U.S. military. The reason is simple: the more devout a Muslim is, the more of a threat he is to national security."
-- Fischer's bullying prevention plan: "If We Want to See Fewer Students Commit Suicide, We Want Fewer Homosexual Students"
-- Again: "There is no spirit of God in Islam. It is the spirit of Satan (see video at :19). It is the spirit of darkness. It is the spirit of tyranny. It is the spirit of bondage."
-- Claims homosexuality is a form of "domestic terrorism"
-- In order to stop open service in America, Bryan claimed of the past: "Homosexuality gave us Adolf Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and six million dead Jews."
-- Claims "allowing gay adoption is a form of sexual abuse"
-- In a now-scrubbed column, claimed Native Americans as innately cursed because they "cling to the darkness of indigenous superstition" (In a January 2013 interview with David Shuster, Bryan said he stood by this claim).
-- Flatly declares same-sex parenting to be "a form of child abuse" (using anti-gay researcher Robert Oscar Lopez a "proof"
-- Links homosexuality to dalliances with sex workers
Oh, he disagrees with us, alright. We see ourselves as not needing to be rehabbed the way you might treat a drug addict while he publicly seeks the opposite.
If fighting against his chilling vision is a "conspiracy," then count me among the proud conspirators.
