Fischer Loves Russia’s Fascist Policy

It should come as no surprise that theocrat Bryan Fischer just loves what Russia is doing with its fascist new law that criminalizes even advocacy of equal rights for gay people. The Voice of Russia bizarrely refers to Fischer as an “expert.” In what? I have no idea.

VOR also spoke with Bryan Fischer, head of the American Family Association, who has a different view on the situation.

“Russia is not being homophobic, it’s homorealistic – the Russian government is trying to take the issue into consideration and establish public policy to contribute to public health, as this lifestyle is not be promoted, endorsed or granted special legal protection”, the expert said, warning of high health risks linked to this lifestyle.

He cites the Center for Disease Control that has monitored the HIV epidemic since 1987 and determined that 61% of HIV-positive males had sexual contacts with other males.

“Homosexual behavior is just as risky as drug abuse,” Fischer said.

“I think the Russian government is right to be concerned with propaganda on teenagers who are at the age of struggling through sexual identity issue and we should help to channel these urges in productive behavior. Heterosexuality is God’s design. Policies that encourage young people to think this are good ideas.”

Funny how they always mentioned health stats on gay men but ignore gay women, which have lower rates of STDs than straight people do. So since this is all about health, their authoritarian ideas apply only to gay men, right? Of course not. Because that is a pretext, not a serious argument. It’s classic special pleading to cover up the fact that their only real argument is “ewwwwwwwww.”

    Homophobia. Which, of course, is just what the Russians think they need.

    Seems to me that the statistics support the idea that men pass on STDs much more easily than women. We should just eliminate men altogether (except for your’s truly, of course!)

    Risky as drug abuse? Some drugs like caffeine and cannabis can be abused with very little health risk compared to other drugs like cocaine and alcohol. Sounds like he needs to state his units: is being gay as risky as smoking crack every night? or only as risky as having more cups of tea than is medically advised?

    Is there something Fischer isn’t telling us?

    And:

    Fischer Loves Russia’s Fascist Policy

    Birds of a feather. . . .

    Nor is Fischer the “head” of the Always Fearful Americans – that latter job is an entitlement of the (males of the) Wildmon family.

    Fischer is just a hired mouthpiece.

    I suppose it depends on how one plays the game.

    But really, how does Putin expect to be taken seriously when he’s constantly releasing all of those homo-erotic, shirt-off-riding-horses-fishing-and-doing-lots-more-manly-stuff photographs. That’s a clear case of ‘do as I say, not as I do’.

    In the US, of course, which has a very different epidemic of HIV than, say, sub-Saharan Africa. But pointing out there are different strains of HIV with different risks of transmission depending on the actual sexual act or other behavior that is the mechanism for transmission would deprive Fischer of having another reason to hate on the group he obsesses over on a daily basis.

    Actually, I suspect that Fischer and his ilk would be willing to ignore lesbians, just as Leviticus did, as long as they did it in the harem behind closed doors, didn’t try to get publically married or otherwise insist too vocally on their rights.

    Yeah, but smoking pot and drinking tea at the same time can lead to…a very pleasant afternoon. Ahhhh!

    I would have defined homorealistic as “interested in, concerned with, or based on the acceptance of homosexual orientation as part of the human condition”

    An “expert” is anyone with a microphone who agrees with the speaker. Standard news media bullshit, really.

  12. Crudely Wrott says

    Daffynition of “expert”:

    X = symbol representing an unknown

    spurt = a small amount of liquid discharged at a high velocity

    Ergo: an expert is an unknown drip under pressure.
