America on the ropes, says ‘pro-family’ group on the wane

The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer:

Rarely can you point to a moment in time when a nation consigned itself to the scrap heap of history. Today, when the Senate normalized sexual perversion in the military, was that moment for the United States. If historians want a fixed marker pointing to the instant the United States sealed its own demise, they just found it.

It won’t happen overnight, but happen it will.

And Republicans did not just stand around and watch as our military was shredded before their very eyes, they helped it happen. Shame on them all. [SOURCE]

Which is of course an awesome assessment. For if we’ve all been living in an America with which this particularly Family Association has self-Bryan-Fischeridentified, then it’s past time we mold the remaining scraps into something new, strong, inclusive and free!

But Bryan aint done yet. He is also ignoring the screening processes that accompany all military recruitment and service, the actual nature of disease transmissibility, the differences between sexual orientation and genuine lifestyle choices, and general facts about human beings and their characteristics/qualifications, instead painting “druggies” and “hookers” and gays with one broad, diseased, deeply offensive brush:

People will naturally recoil at the thought of allowing druggies and hookers to serve openly and wantonly in the U.S. military. But how is that different than allowing active homosexuals to serve? In point of fact, it isn’t.

Why, only prudish, antediluvian Neanderthal troglodytes would deny them the opportunity to defend their country! How can we possibly justify such egregious discrimination against such harmless souls? It’s time for the United States military to drag itself (pun intended) into the 21st century! Stop the invidious discrimination against druggies and hookers – now! Sign ‘em up! Let’s get ‘em into our showers and our barracks and foxholes! If we let gays in there, we’ve got to let needle-pushers and street walkers in there! It’s only fair! They’ve been denied the opportunity to serve their country for far too long! This terrible injustice must end! [SOURCE]

Oh you’re so witty, Mr. Fischer! Hopefully the scrap heap of history has an open mic night or something.

*REMINDER: Just this past summer, the Family Research Council — who every major conservative is now defending against the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate group” claims — booked Bryan Fischer as a military expert.

Latest ‘pro-family’ response to SPLC list: ‘If hating homosexuals makes our church a hate group then that’s what we are’; wants gays dead



(via RWW)

***

*Other SPLC list responses:

Matt Barber: Matt Barber called equality activists ‘purveyors of evil’. But yea, it probably is the SPLC that deserves scorn. Uh huh. Sure.

Gary Cass: Apoplectic rather than apologetic: Another family ‘defender’ knocks SPLC

Tony Perkins: Dish it, can’t take it: FRC pissed that people are calling them on their crap

Maggie Gallagher: No, no — Maggie’s not battling gay orientations. She just calls homosexuality ‘unfortunate’, ‘controllable’, and ‘sinful’ because she’s bored.

Bryan Fischer: In fact we’re so into stifling Bryan’s speech that we’ll now write our 47th post about him

‘Pro-family’ politics: Black-robed judges = bad; armed black-robed preachers = yes!

Jim-GarlowMore from anti-LGBT equality pastor Jim Garlow:

Garlow recalls how pastors before the Revolutionary War led people to godliness. “…When these pastors would complete their sermons, they would take off their black robes — they preached in vestments at those times — … [and] underneath that would be the attire of military,” he shares. “They would pick up a musket and [ask]: ‘Who’s going to go fight with me?’

“And so the revolutionary armies during that time came from pastors leading the churches. It’s known as the Blacked-Robed Regiment.”

That same kind of leadership, says the California pastor, is needed today. “And we need a black-robed regiment today,” he urges. “We need pastors who are willing to stand up. And we need persons who are in the pews to stand up with them — a black-robed regiment of laypersons — who’s going to take [a like stand]. We’re going to have to spiritually see our nation change.”

Pastor: Christians need to make a difference on Nov. 2 [ONN]

You say you want a revolution? Well, you know: We all want to change the world.

But when you talk about destruction, don’t you know that you can count me out?
