I'm beginning to think that Bryan Fischer doesn't like gays

It's often said that the first to call the other a Nazi has lost the argument. - Matt Barber of the right-wing Liberty Counsel.

Why thank you Matt for calling Bryan Fischer a loser. But the lgbt community always knew that:

By the way, the following is Fischer's idea of "criticizing gay people:"

This is the same Bryan Fischer who's said "Homosexuals in the military gave us...six million dead Jews". The guy who's said "homosexuals should be disqualified from public office," has called on Christian conservatives to breed gays and progressives out of existence, has called gay sex a "form of domestic terrorism," who's said only gays were savage enough for Hitler, has compared gays to heroin abusers, has directly compared laws against gay soldiers to those that apply to bank robbers, who once invoked a Biblical story about stabbing "sexually immoral" people with spears, saying we need this kind of action in modern day, who has spoken out against gays serving as public school teachers, has questioned why Medals of Honor are given to people who save lives (rather than take lives), who says that open service will "assign the United States to the scrap heap of history," who recently commiserated with Bradlee 'Executing homosexuals is moral' Dean, and who has blamed gay activists for dead gay kids, saying that: "If we want to see fewer students commit suicide, we want fewer homosexual students". 

Oh we are such bullies. I mean how dare us lgbts get angry when attacked like this.

The next thing you know, we will get angry when called the "f-word."

I mean that's just uppity.

NOM's Maggie Gallagher the subject of blistering article

Politicususa recently published an absolutely brutal, take-no-prisoners article on National Organization for Marriage head Maggie Gallagher. The article dissects of Gallagher's history homophobia and questionable ethics (going on way before her founding of NOM)  in a manner worthy of Truman Capote in his most caustic, but truthful prose:

Among the juicy bits:

In inciting others to discrimination against gay Americans, Gallagher has no scruples.  The fact of inciting to discrimination, obviously, is in itself a signifier of Gallagher’s repugnant character.  Compounding her ethical repulsiveness, however, is Gallagher’s fast-and-loose handling of the financing of her campaigns to perpetuate sexual-orientation apartheid.

  The administration of George W. Bush, the shameful president who supported a constitutional amendment reinforcing sexual-orientation apartheid in the United States, paid Maggie Gallagher various large sums of money to serve as one of its anti-gay propaganda mouthpieces.  Using Republican, small-government tax payer money, Gallagher commenced to inflict pain on LGBT Americans by serving as one of the Bush administration’s faces of state-sponsored hate.  Gallagher, fraudulently presenting herself to the public as a “journalist,” got vicious anti-gay articles published, promoting Bush’s sexual-orientation apartheid, yet did not disclose that she was on Bush’s payroll.  Paid advertorials must be clearly labeled as paid advertorials.  Maggie Gallagher, in cahoots with Bush to perpetuate sexual-orientation apartheid in the United States, however, published paid advertorials for hate without disclosing that they were paid advertorials.  To call Gallagher a shill for hate is perhaps expressing the case too mildly.  Gallagher eventually got apprehended, in a scandal that would have stopped most other imposter “journalists” from continuing in the field professionally.  However, she had a flippant, obnoxious reaction when called out on her unethical behavior, and certain editors who support sexual-orientation apartheid have published her since.

 . . .  All such defamatory anti-gay propaganda is of course asinine and does not bear any level of intellectual scrutiny.  Gallagher and her followers deploy the classic bully strategy of painting themselves as the victims of the people against whom they are perpetuating institutionalized discrimination.  Gallagher says that if gay Americans are allowed to marry, all heterosexual marriages “are diminished.”  She should tell that one to The Horse Marines.  A strong measure of just how untenable Gallagher’s revolting hate speech is can be seen in some of the events of the challenge to Proposition 8 in the courts in California.  Whereas Gallagher presents herself to the public as though she were the nation’s leading expert on matters of marriage and the law, and appears regularly on television as a supposed expert on marriage, she did not participate in the Proposition 8 case as an expert witness.  As attorney David Boies said; “A witness stand is a lonely place to lie.  And when you come into court, you cannot do that.”

No doubt Gallagher and NOM will exploit portions of the article  to whine about the "evil homosexual activists" picking on her, even though the lgbt community had nothing to do with this very awesome take down.

But it's what we have come to expect from them.

In this case, I say the article is worth whatever flack NOM will try to raise from it. Give it a serious read.
