Christian conservative Bryan Fischer on
Monday was called out on his hypocrisy after stating that being gay
is a choice.
In speaking with a male caller to his
AFA-sponsored radio show who identified himself as a “non-practicing
homosexual,” Fischer congratulated him for his abstinence.
“I do not believe people are born
homosexual. I believe that it's a matter of sexual behavior and
conduct which is always a matter of choice,” Fischer
told the caller. “You can remain chaste; that you have a
choice over what you do with your sexual impulses. You don't have to
give in to every sexual impulse that you feel.”
“And that's exactly what you're
doing,” he added.
“Alright, I have something that I
would like to ask you,” the caller said. “Could you have sex
with a man?”
“Could you have sex with a man?”
“No,” Fischer answered.
“I thought it was a choice?” the
“Sure it is. I'm just saying, it's
emotionally, morally, mentally impossible for me ...”
“But you just told me that you
couldn't do it?”
“Yeah, I couldn't do it. There is no
way. There is nothing in me that would let me do that.”
“OK, how do you think I feel about
women?” the caller asked.
“I don't know. How do you feel about
“There ain't no way,” the caller
Fischer chose to dismiss the caller's
point and said: “If an individual does not have a legitimate way to
satisfy their sexual impulses, then the path that God has designed
for them is the path of abstinence, chastity and celibacy.” (The
