Right Wing Hate Group Director: ‘Boy Scouts Should Be Renamed To Boy Sodomizers’

Showing just how deeply offended the right-wing is about the Boy Scouts embrace of scouting equality, Bryan Fischer, religious nut job-in-chief for the extreme right, has declared that the Boy Scouts shall now be called the “Boy Sodomizers of America.”

Bryan Fischer, known for his extreme views on various subjects but especially homosexuality, is the Director of Issue Analysis for Government and Public Policy for the American Family Association. The AFA is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a classification that was motivated, in large part, by Fischer’s anti-gay statements on his radio show. The inflammatory remarks he made on his show this Friday were par for the course for him:

“We might as well rename this organization now. BSA no longer stands for the Boy Scouts of America. It now stands for the boy sodomizers of America because that is exactly is what is gonna happen.”

Fischer then goes on to read some words from the Gospel of Luke about not leading “little ones” into temptation, saying that the words were from Jesus directly to the Boy Scouts. Fischer goes on to say:

“I would not want to be in the shoes of a Boy Scout executive standing before the throne of God, being judged by the man who spoke those words, by the God who spoke those words. That is not gonna be a pretty picture.”

How much longer are we going to have to put up with hateful bigots like Fischer who insist that by expanding liberties we are somehow promoting the destruction of everything good in the world? Fischer sits in front of a screen showing images of the Constitution, the very document to which we look to define our freedoms, and the American Flag, our nation’s symbol of freedom, while spewing his anger and hate at a segment of society that has done nothing to deserve that vitriol except ask for those freedoms to be expanded in their favor. Using his Bible, that ancient document our Founding Fathers excluded from a role in American politics by the same Constitution that is shown behind him, he hides behind 2000 year-old words that have little to do with modern society, much less modern politics. Fischer uses the words of an historical figure, one who proclaimed love and concern for our fellow human, and twists them in such a way as to justify his hate and wrath for those who do not think like him. How Christ like of him.

As Ghandi famously said, “I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ.”
