Bryan Fischer Award Nominee: Buster Wilson

The Bryan Fischer Award is given to those who display an astonishing lack of self-awareness and no sense of irony, people who project their own worst flaws onto others. Today’s nominee is Fischer’s co-worker at the American Family Association, Buster Wilson. Check out this bit of projection:

One of my big pet peeves is that people on the left, people in Big Gay, people like Southern Poverty Law Center, people like that, they do not have the capacity—I supposed because they never do—it’s either they don’t have the capacity or they absolutely have no desire, to literally try and have any kind of intellectual conversation about these issues that we all talk about and sometimes disagree on. There is no ability to reason, no ability to have sane conversation, it’s just name calling and personal attack.

Remember, this is from someone who thinks gay people are deliberately trying to destroy morality, Christianity and all of western civilization by getting married.

    This is especially apt given the preceding post where people who (I assume) are co-ideologues of the AFA call for GLBTQ people to be put to death.

    I don’t think there’s much opportunity to reason with someone who wants you dead on account of disagreeing with whose pants you want to get into.

    Yeah, that must be why you keep losing in court on gay rights. Because our lawyers have no ability to reason.

    Remember, this is from someone who thinks gay people are deliberately trying to destroy morality, Christianity and all of western civilization by getting married.

    Do you remember when Canada okayed gay marriage and the whole country burned to the ground the very next day? And still now seven years later it’s a devastated, ash-covered wasteland, filled with roving packs of gay cannibals wearing wedding rings.

    Chilling to think about that happening here.

    Wow. Deja Vu. I’ve been in a Facebook conversation over the past couple of days with a Romney supporter. Every time I ask a question to try and get her to actually establish what her position is, aside from “Christian Values”, she responds with “Why do leftists always have to be nasty and attacking?” It must be hard to live in a world where every challenge to your beliefs, whether explicit, implied or imagined, is regarded as a personal attack.

    Remember, this is from someone who uses the term “Big Gay”.

    Is that the “Big Gay” whose Alabama chapter has the animal sanctuary?

    Funny how the Religious Right constantly warns of the total destruction of Western Civilization when gays marry but never point to the wasteland to America’s north as an example.

    …it’s either they don’t have the capacity or they absolutely have no desire, to literally try and have any kind of intellectual conversation about these issues that we all talk about and sometimes disagree on.

    To be fair to Big Gay, I have to admit that I don’t usually try to have “intellectual conversations” with small toddlers either.

    Well we TRIED Buster, but all we got in response was infantile ignorant gibberish, so we gave up.

    And we’re super, thanks for asking.

    I guess if you work with Bryan Fischer, you have to work hard on your crazy in order to stand out.

    So, that would be Big Gay AL?

    …to literally try and have any kind of intellectual conversation about these issues…

    Intellectual? Hell, when you people rise to the level of moron, let us know, ok? Then maybe we’ll stop laughing.

    I feel the need for a quote from the Steve Martin movie LA Story.

    “Well, maybe you think it’s intellectual because you were raised with a banana and an inner tube… this is an intellectual free zone”.

    The “Big Gay” thing sort of sounds like the assertion that ‘gays want to ‘shove their vile sexual practices down our throats’. It always comes out in a way that leaves a considerable amount of ambiguity as to whether they are expressing disgust, repressed desire, or typical of a approach/avoidance conflict, both.

    Of course the whole “lack of self-awareness [lack] of irony” plays out in this sort of thing. Approach/avoidance conflicts are frequently a result of not being able to integrate certain feelings into their self image. Unable to own their own feelings they project them outward and experience them as entirely alien and pushed onto them by the “other”, in this case “Big Gay”.

    “Big Gay” – love that! The man truly deserves an award. (Although I’m not sure what this term implies: is it to distinguish from “small gay” or is gayness somehow profitable? And what about hairy-back gay?)

    Wasn’t ‘The Big Gay’ Raymond Chandler’s unsuccessful foray into homoerotic fiction?
    (Yes, I’ve said it before but every time I see it…)*

    I may be dating myself here but when I read “Big Gay” I instantly thought of Raymond Burr.

    Must have been the use of inappropriate caps I guess…

    Generalissimo Google™ finds, for “Big Gay” (with the “quotes”): Big Gay Ice Cream, The Big Gay Musical (a movie), the Big Gay 10K Walk (in London), and so on…
    “Big Gay” lifestyle finds the Big Gay Lifestyle Show 2012.

    And completely stoopid nutters and the “Big Gay” has a few hits…
