Byran Fischer Calls For “Underground Railroad” For Kids of Same-Sex Parents
Bryan Fischer, one of the American Family Association’s most prominent radio hosts, is well known for saying outrageous and truly hateful things about…every time his mouth starts moving.
Tuesday was no exception, when he tweeted, “Head of Underground Railroad to deliver innocent children from same-sex households goes on trial.” Included was an article by the Chicago Tribune about a Mennonite pastor that is going on trial this week for helping to kidnap the ten-year-old daughter of an “ex-gay” woman and take her to Central America after a court ordered the woman to allow her former lesbian partner to see the child.
Only a few minutes later, Fischer tweeted a similar remark, “Why we need an Underground Railroad to deliver innocent children from same-sex households: http://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2012/08/6065.” The link is about a man who is claiming that his problems in life were because he was raised by his lesbian parents.
…growing up with gay parents was very difficult, and not because of prejudice from neighbors. People in our community didn’t really know what was going on in the house. To most outside observers, I was a well-raised, high-achieving child, finishing high school with straight A’s.
Yeah, his life was terrible. Reading that man’s story, I find I relate to him very much. It has nothing to do with gay parents. I had a mother and a father. I was just completely socially awkward. This man just had social problems (which probably explains why he is a conservative) that prevented him from “fitting in,” and he blamed it on the one factor that made him different from the rest of his peers: gay parents.
I had no gay parents to blame, nor would I have had I been raised by gay parents. I understood my situation and remedied it, unlike this man that is blaming gays for him having a problem, who Fischer is now using as nothing more than anecdotal evidence to demonise gay parents. For every story he, and any conservative, can point to about a child not liking being raised by gay parents, I can point to ten of the exact opposite, and of kids not liking their “traditional families” with straight, conservative, Christian parents.
Fischer is calling for the kids in these kinds of homes, with loving parents who have the same genitalia, to be taken from their parents simply because they have the same genitalia. Not only that, but he is praising a man who kidnapped a little girl and tried to take her to Nicaragua to prevent her at all costs from seeing her mother (the one that didn’t go all Jesus-y).
