“People argue that some folks have a genetic, hereditary predisposition to alcoholism. We would never say to such individuals, “Hey, in most cases, we tell people not to drink themselves into a stupor – it will destroy your life, your marriage, your family, your career – but hey, go ahead, you’re born that way, you can’t help it, knock yourself out, wreck your life, don’t worry about it.”
Of course not. We’d, say, hey the road may be a little tougher for you than others, but you have got to get control of these dark impulses before they wreak utter and total havoc in your life. I’m here to help, what can I do?
That’s the same message we have for homosexuals: sexual behavior is a choice, homosexual behavior will leave you diseased, lonely, and dead, you’ve got to learn to resist homosexual impulses, I’m here to help.
If homosexuals resist the offer of such help, well, I guess that’s a choice too, isn’t it?”
In other parts of his spiel, Fischer asserts that a gay gene would lead to mass abortions of gay babies and compares gays’ “sexual impulses” to Tiger Woods’ extramarital actions. So essentially, in Fischer’s world, LGBT people are condemned from birth to afterlife, with little more transient, STD-laden affairs to fill the days in between.
It Gets Better? Not if Fischer and the bitter, battering far-right can help it.

**EARLIER FISCHER: He’s the guy who’s said that “homosexuals in the military gave us…six million dead Jews,” who’s said “homosexuals should be disqualified from public office,” who 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, and who has spoken out against gays serving as public school teachers, 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.”
