On his "Focal Point" radio show, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer recently claimed that the "active, aggressive homosexual lobby" represented a threat to U.S. democracy.
As Right Wing Watch first reported, Fischer, who is no stranger to anti-gay declarations, told listeners, "I firmly believe the homosexual agenda represents the greatest single threat to religious liberty we have ever seen in the history of our existence as a nation."
He went on to note, "It's the greatest threat to liberty of all kinds, whether it's freedom of religion, whether it is freedom of speech, whether it is freedom of the press, whether it is freedom of association."
Earlier this year, Fischer argued that the U.S. Supreme Court's Oct. 6 decision to turn away same-sex marriage appeals from Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin was "unconstitutional," Right Wing Watch first reported.
He also defended opposition to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights, arguing that anti-LGBT sentiment was a "natural revulsion."
