One day after President Obama became the first president to mention gay rights in an inaugural speech, Christian conservative radio host Bryan Fischer blasted the president for his “ignorance of homosexuality” because, as Fischer believes, “gays do not have the right to engage in sodomy.”
After praising the American people as “resilient” and noting that the second inauguration of Obama means “we are halfway there,” Fischer went off on Obama’s specific quote that “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. For if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.”
“We are for every homosexual being treated as equal before the law,” Fischer couched before saying, “However, homosexuals do not have a constitutional right to engage in sodomy. They do not have a constitutional right to engage in whatever to make what ever sexual choices they want to make.”
Fischer then explained that sodomy was a felony for the first 200 years of America’s history, “so it’s absurd in the extreme, it’s ridiculous, it’s ludicrous for homosexuals to claim that they have some kind of constitutional right to engage in sexually deviant behavior. They don’t.”
Apparently Fischer has never heard of a little Supreme Court case called Lawrence v. Texas (2003) which essentially invalidated sodomy laws in 14 states, making sodomy legal in every U.S. state.
Regardless, he went on to proclaim that homosexuals have “no more a right to engage in sodomy than pedophiles have to engage in their sexual practices; than those who would like to engage in incest have a right to engage in their kind of practices; or people who want to have sex with animals. They don’t have a right to do that under the Constitution.”
“All men are created equal,” Fischer concluded, “but nobody, nobody, nobody is born gay.”
