the AFA spokesman was going to discuss the health risks associated with homosexual behavior. He was tossed for it.

I think the AFA should put a disclaimer on their site that they do not endorse Medievalism and ignorance.

Only difference is it was more of a "hang-up" than "throw-out", but still great.

I can't believe he actually said that Hitler recruited gays to be his stormtroopers. I mean, it explains why their uniforms were so fabulous, but c'mon!!!

And yea, the second he started going in to "health risks" she disconnected it.

Good on CNN for calling him out on hate speech, then taking away his soapbox when it became absolutely clear he wasn't the tiniest bit interested in rational discussion. This is how discourse should work - you give them the floor to speak their beliefs, and when they turn out to be absolutely crazy, you stop taking them seriously and move on to a sane person.

Making your post completely useless. That's not what happened. Nor is it what he was invited to talk about.

He was trying to turn an anti-bullying lunch into an endorsement of homosexuality. To Fischer, anything short of beating up suspected gay kids is an endorsement of homosexuality.

CNN host Carol Costello had enough after Bryan Fischer started listing health risks to homosexuality

All of this proves that the lamestream media is in cahoots in with the gays.

There WERE no "highlights".

Voiceofreason01: Can't see video at work. Assuming headline is accurate: good for them.


The interview was part of a story about "Mix it up at lunch day" at some schools. The interview with the AFA representative was to discuss their opposition to this event, but he decided to turn it into a platform for him to spew a variety of lies, half-truths, and misleading facts about the dangers of the "homosexual lifestyle," and to talk about the SPLC is the "real hate group"

Given that Bryan Fischer is also an AIDS denier, and the spokesman for a rightwing hate group who claims that Hitler used homosexuals as his "stormtroopers, his enforcers", I ouldn't be surprised at any ignorant poop that he squeezes out of his mouth

This.
I'm tired of MSM trying to treat rational discussion and irrational discussion as different sides of the same issue. By even allowing them to introduce their irrational theory, you're giving them a voice and adding legitimacy.

You've introduced the plausibility that you've rejected their theory for reasons other than merit because you initially assigned merit during the introduction.

There is an increased chance of getting STDs when having gay sex. Duh. Then again, there is also an increased chance of getting STDs having nongay sex, so whatever... blah blah blah.

And as I said, that's not what he was invited to talk about. You can't stay on topic any better than he did.

I'd suggest you watch the video to help ensure you don't make a bigger fool out of yourself. But I know you will anyway.

Inviting these douchebags on is the first offense. Inviting them on and then throwing them off is merely to create controversy and draw in viewers.

They knew what the AFA believes going into this, and had to know there was no way it was going to be a rational conversation.

The problem is that she started out the interview on that fundie asshole's own side of the field. She constantly asked him about his views on such things as attracting kids to "the homosexual lifestyle," lending credence to the fundie homophobes' retarded concept that sexual orientation is simply a "lifestyle choice" rather than something that has a biological or genetic origin. Once you start out the interview in that territory, it's only a small step to the next few levels of derpitude this cocksucker spouted.

Good for you. Then you also realize that he spent the entire time spewing hateful, ridiculous claims about homosexuals and homosexuality (like the ridiculous claim that Mix it up day is a nefarious plot to push the "homosexual agenda" on good Christian children) and would have done so in perpetuity if not stopped.

She should have stopped him sooner, or better yet, never given the asshat the air time in the first place.

CNN is a privately owned business. They are not required to put anyone on the air. Unless someone passes a law to silence some person or group, there is no free speech issue.

If by "shouldn't be allowed" you mean that laws should be passed that forbid CNN or anyone else from have Fischer (or any group or person) on the air, then, yes, you will get blasted.

That's just simple science. Yes, there is more of a risk to transmission of certain STDs during unprotected anal sex. This is because of a higher transference of bodily fluids, and fluids that usually do not come into play during non-anal sex, fluids which are known to carry high amounts of viral loads.

I really don't like it though when anti-gay morons try to use this basic science and try to turn it around as some sort of punishment for amoral behavior. As if God is responsible for the risks of teh buttseks.
