Christian conservative Bryan Fischer
admitted that the tide has turned against gay marriage foes but added
that they won't give up.
Fischer, a spokesman for the American
Family Association (AFA), made his comments during an appearance on
The David Pakman Show.
“You talked last week about feeling
like this [DOMA] decision has made anti-gay activists second-class
citizens,” Pakman said. “Without addressing that specifically,
do you think that the tide has turned and that this is really the
end, that we're going sundown on this whole thing?”
“Well, trends can be reversed,
David,” Fischer said. “Trends mean nothing when it comes to what
is right and best for American culture. You know, the homosexual
activists in 2004, they lost 31 straight votes on gay marriage, they
didn't say, 'Hey, the tide is against us. The trend is against us.
There's no point in fighting any longer, let's just give up.' Well,
they didn't give up and neither are we.” (The video is embedded on
