Christian conservative Bryan Fisher on Wednesday argued that Anthony Weiner's sexting scandal should disqualify him from holding public office, then added that similar “sexually perverse behavior” should also disqualify all “practicing homosexuals.”

Weiner enter the New York City mayoral race two years after a sexting scandal forced him to resign from Congress. But on Tuesday, Weiner admitted to sending a woman sexually explicit photos and messages as recently as last summer.

During a hastily called news conference, Weiner, with his wife Huma Abedin standing by his side, resisted calls to withdraw from the race.

“I want to bring my vision to the people of the city of New York,” said Weiner, a Democrat. “I hope they are willing to still continue to give me a second chance.”

In an online editorial posted Tuesday, The New York Times urged Weiner to walk away.

Weiner “should take his marital troubles and personal compulsions out of the public eye, away from the cameras, off the Web and out of the race for mayor of New York City,” the paper wrote.

Fischer extended the Times' logic to gay people, first in a series of tweets, then on his AFA-hosted radio program, Focal Point.

“Discriminating against sexually perverse behavior is right: NYTimes calls for Weiner to drop out of mayoral race. I agree,” Fischer tweeted to his more than 4,200 followers on Tuesday.

“If Anthony Weiner should step down for engaging in sexually perverse behavior, so should every practicing homosexual,” he messaged.

Fischer returned to the topic on Wednesday.

The New York Times is “disqualifying Anthony Weiner on the basis of what he does in the privacy of his own life. So they are discriminating on the basis of sexually immoral conduct. They are saying, 'Look this behavior is perverse and therefore he ought to be disqualified from public office.' Well in our view homosexual behavior is perverse. Practicing homosexuals are disqualified from public office, for the same reason,” Fischer said during his radio program. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
