top and bottom

Bryan Fischer is affiliated with the American Family Association, which has been designated as a hate group.

You can always count on ultra-conservative kook Bryan Fischer for an outrageously homophobic soundbite.

The Fundamentalist Christian pundit brought up gay sex Monday as host of Focal Point on American Family Radio, which is run by the American Family Association, Media Matters reports.

Fischer broached the subject by defending fellow Christian homophobe Franklin Graham’s recent remarks that Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg’s sexuality is “something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised or politicized.”

“There’s a whole lot of sins that will keep you out of the kingdom of God,” Fischer explains. “Here’s just a sample: Sexually immoral can’t get in. Idolaters can’t get in. Adulterers can’t get in.” He then referenced the Bible, claiming that St. Paul the apostle “uses two different terms: one for the active participant, the other for the passive.”

“In the homosexual community, one is called the bottom. The other is called the top. Not going to go into any more detail about that, but here Paul is talking about both parts of a homosexual liaison—neither of them is going to make it into the eternal kingdom.”

Fischer, who has a long history of anti-LGBTQ rhetoric, once declared that “the homosexual agenda represents the single greatest modern threat to freedom of religion and conscience.” He has also argued for the criminalization of sodomy and described the rainbow flag as “the mark of the beast.”

Fischer is the former Director of Issues Analysis for the AFA, which the Southern Poverty Law Center designated as a hate group in 2010. He was fired from the position in 2015 for his extremist statements, including that homosexuals were responsible for the Holocaust.

The right-wing pundit continues to post on the AFA blog Instant Analysis. In a recent column about the Equality Act, he compares homosexuality to pedophilia, necrophilia, and bestiality.
