Christian conservative Bryan Fischer
insists he's not an “anti-gay activist.”
During an appearance on The David
Pakman Show, Fischer reacted angrily when host David Pakman used
the term to identify him.
“No, I've never used that term,
David,” Fischer said. “I am not anti-gay. I am for homosexuals.
I am against homosexuality.”
“But you said just the other day that
the [DOMA] decision makes anti-gay activists second-class citizen and
you talked about yourself in that group on your show,” Pakman
“But that's the term you use. That's
not the term I use.”
“That's the term you used on your
show last week,” Pakman said.
“Well, that's because that's the term
you use. I am not anti-gay. I am for homosexuals. I am against
homosexuality, because homosexuality destroys the health and the
spirit of the people that engage in it. So, I am for them because I
want them to be free from the self-destructive behavior.”
“But Bryan, you were talking to
another anti-gay guy and you didn't say 'so-called anti-gay activist'
or 'anti-gay activist as described by the other side,' you just used
the term. How can you now say that that's not something you used to
describe yourself? On your own show, unprompted you described
yourself that way,” Pakman said.
Fischer refused to budge, saying he had
already answered the question. (The video is embedded on this page.
