Christian conservative Bryan Fischer on Thursday declared that the world will plunge “into a moral abyss of darkness” if gay rights prevail in America.

Fischer, the radio host of Focal Point, told his listeners that this was the defining battle of our time.

“The battle over special rights on the basis of homosexual behavior is the battle of our time, and there is no other battle,” Fischer said.

“America's future is going to be determined by one thing and one thing only. And that is whether the forces of light or darkness will prevail in the battle over special rights based on sexually deviant behavior.”

“Every advance of the homosexual agenda comes at the expense of religious liberty.”

Fischer said that Americans want to believe that “sodomy and liberty” can coexist “but it is impossible,” because “everywhere that Big Gay gains ground, Christ is forced into retreat.”

“If the forces of sexual deviancy prevail, I submit that every part of our culture will be corrupted,” Fischer warned. “It will be contaminated beyond repair and America, instead of leading the world, will plunge the world into a moral abyss of darkness and depravity.” (The video is embedded on this page.
