Bryan Fischer is a well-known evangelical leader and Director of Issues Analysis of the American Family Association who also has a radio show. He has the usual reactionary beliefs of his group, such as that men should rule over women in households and that the recent rise in the number of households in which women are the primary breadwinners was a bad thing.
But he outdid himself when made the following comment about the decision by the Boy Scouts of America to allow gay members.
“We might as well rename this organization,” Fischer said on his radio show. “BSA no longer stands for the Boy Scouts of America. It now stands for the Boy Sodomizers of America.”
I don’t expect much from people like Fischer. But I do know evangelical people and though I have not specifically asked them about this, I cannot imagine that they would not be repulsed by such a disgusting comment. It reveals a gutter mentality and really boggles the mind to think that someone could stoop so low.
But hard as it is to believe, such views must be congenial to sufficient numbers of people since he retains his position of prominence in evangelical circles.
