Bryan Fischer of the Christian conservative group American Family Association (AFA) has said gay marriage would end religious liberty, media watchdog reported.

On his AFA-sponsored radio show, Focal Point, Fischer insisted equal marriage rights for gay and lesbian couples would spell the demise of the First Amendment.

“Every advance of the homosexual agenda comes at the expense of religious liberty,” Fischer told his listeners. “The single greatest threat to religious liberty in America today is the homosexual agenda. We cannot have religious liberty. In fact, I would go so far as to say we cannot have gay marriage and the First Amendment. We can't have homosexuality and the First Amendment. If homosexuality is embraced and normalized, that's the end of the First Amendment.”

“Now I believe we should be free in America to discriminate against homosexual behavior. Because if we don't, then it will be people of faith who will be discriminated against. It is not possible to have a discrimination-free society. We can't have it. Either we are going to discriminate against homosexual behavior or we are going to discriminate against Christianity.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.
