    If they’re worried about Paedophiles they should keep all Catholic Priests away from kids!!

    1. Jock S. Trap 29 Jan 2013, 4:04pm

      Indeed.

      I also worry very much about children around people like Bryan Fischer. What they do is nothing more than mental child abuse.

    2. Hey Liam you’re right cause you know what? Those Catholic priests were GAY!

      1. Take your dried snatch back into the kitchen, and make me a sandwich.

  2. If they cannot tell the difference between a homosexual and a paedophile it is debatable whether any kids are safe in their hands.

    If they are so focussed on openly gay individuals who are happy with their life and who have a lot to offer kids, the paedophiles are piling in through the back door unnoticed.

    1. Jock S. Trap 29 Jan 2013, 4:06pm

      It’s no wonder is it that with people like Mr Fischer more LGBT people suffer mental health problems.

      Anyone would with that level of hate aimed at them.

    I love it when the religious right wing nutters go in to meltdown mode :D

    They live in a different reality to most decent people on the planet. The more wild and ridiculous their claims the more normal folk who happen to hear them think they’ve not playing with a full deck. :)

  4. Because no paedophiles are every heterosexual, right?

    Seriously though, what is it with people connecting paedophiles and homosexuals?

    1. Jock S. Trap 29 Jan 2013, 4:10pm

      It’s lazy… was gonna say thinking but that the whole point… they don’t think.

      Many of these bigots also believe that Gay people are a result of child abuse…. yes in most cases it them assuming again yet even if it was true look how they treat people of child abuse. They cannot seriously think it is right.

  5. It says here that parents should have the right to discuss this sexual topic in their own homes with their children. Do they think that if they let gay people into the scouts, that these gay people will be talking about gay sex all the time?? And since when is it all about sex anyway? Is being straight and married all about sex? How about not letting your children go out anywhere because then they might see a married couple and we won’t have had the chance to discuss this sexual topic in the privacy of our own homes!

    1. More to the point he seems to suggest that we’re actively preventing straight parents from discussing sex with their kids.
      What are we going to do? Burst into hetero homes unannounced, like some crack gay commando squad and stick ball gags on mums and dads just as they start discussing the birds and the bees?

  6. Erm, then how did all the paedophiles already in the scouts get in?

  7. Robert in S. Kensington 29 Jan 2013, 3:26pm

    Another religious hate-mongering nutter who should also be barred from entering the UK. There are a number of his type at the Christian Institute right in our own backyard, if that’s not bad enough.

    1. Jock S. Trap 29 Jan 2013, 4:12pm

      Indeed.

      This stems from the Gay people aren’t human argument. It’s ill judge and completely hypocritical.

  8. Wouldn’t life be boring without judgemental ill informed zealous idiots like this. It is hard to hide your race, difficult to hide your religion, and reasonably easy to hide your sexuality as a taboo subject. I support the dropping of the homophobic rules but will it increase the number of boys scouts and masters by 10% because people that identify as LGBT have not been joining? I think the answer will be no! Most scouts will be starting before they identify as gay and anyone that wanted to be a scout master that badly will already be hiding there sexuality. If this changes the key thing tat it will allow is people to stop lying if they choose to and just be better at what they are already doing. I take it that this guy doesn’t object to homosexual men being in charge of and sleeping in the same accommodation as girls or homosexual women sleeping in the same accommodation as boys?

  9. That There Other David 29 Jan 2013, 3:31pm

    As always their comments give everyone a big clue into what really motivates them, as they unintentionally project their own twisted feelings about a situation onto others.

    For example:- “A homosexual does not belong in the same tent with young boys any more than a man belongs in a tent full of Girl Scouts.” says to me that Bryan can’t be trusted around young girls. Law enforcement should keep the man well and truly in sight.

    1. I ended up sharing a room for a week with a gay guy at a business conference some years ago. He was a terrific contact where he worked in the factory tech marketing department. Helped me on some major deals where I worked in the sales dept.

      As for fischer – tell him to stop using his swastka as a dildo.

      BTW for the nutty xtians I actually have a cross made out of two dildoes. Drives them crazy.

  10. Stupid bigoted ignorant man –
    1. There is no proven link between LGBT people and paedophiles. The try to equate these is cheap scare-mongering of the lowest sort.
    2. Since paedophiles are by nature secretive and private, dropping the ‘gay ban’ will have no effect. There are very probably paedophiles already in the organisation.

    If you can’t win your argument with truth and logic, Mr Fischer, DON’T advertise your inadequacies by resorting to lies and innuendos!!!

  11. Jock S. Trap 29 Jan 2013, 3:56pm

    Disgusting man.

    Fact is they have already opened up to paedophile by not letting Gay people in. It nasty, it’s bigotry and it has no place esp with children.

    And Mr Fischer, there’s a reason we have heterosexual, Bisexual and Homosexual and the term paedophile is completely a separate matter. Stop trying to link esp ignoring the fact most paedophiles come from within the family and attack girls and boys.

    Bryan Fischer is a disgusting excuse for a human being, the worst of human kind.

  12. These right wing Christian freaks are obsessed – worse day in the history of western civilisation was when the emperor Constantine swallowed their mumbo jumbo.

    1. Lynda Yilmaz 29 Jan 2013, 5:20pm

      I’m not at all sure that Constantine actually did swallow their mumbo jumbo, I think it was expedient for him to introduce Christianity in terms of organising the masses so he could control them, after all, if you are in control of the God you are in control of the people. I still can’t understand how people the world over never question the strangeness of the fact that the Big Three world religions sprouted in the Middle East and are all basically rehashes of the same one. I have also never met a Christian who even thought about this at all never mind the weirdness of it.

  13. Kerry Hollowell 29 Jan 2013, 3:59pm

    These vile people should not be allowed to run a bath let alone run any organisation

  14. And we’ve jumped on the bandwagon to Land of Paranoia.

  15. He’s off again. OBSESSED with homosexuality! Hey, Bryan. You’re begining to give the game away. We ALL know why you’re so obsessed with the subject. All that seething swamp of self-hatred just spewing out of you ….
    Just face up to your ‘demons’ ….and come out. You’ll be happier once you do.

  16. I never cease to be amazed by the complete lack of self awareness displayed by bigots like Bryan Fischer. The assumption that all gay men are sexually attracted to young boys makes me wonder about his attraction to young girls (assuming he is, as he claims, heterosexual). That any adult finds a child attractive sexually is a problem, regardless of that adult’s sexual orientation. Fischer’s assumption that all adults are attracted to children makes me wonder what he’s saying about himself.

    1. Yeah! Statistics reveal that 97% of all pedophilia cases are committed by heterosexuals. Do your sums and you’ll realise that as homos occupy 10-18% of the population then why the imbalance toward heteros?!?!?!?!

  17. The man really is in need of some psychiatric care!

  18. I am intrigued by Fishers argument. I wonder, does the boy scout movement allow catholic priests to have access to their boys? I hope not!

  19. Brett Gibson 29 Jan 2013, 6:09pm

    I think I just vommed in my mouth a little bit. The vast majority of paedos are straight so put that in your pipe and smoke it. He looks like a paedo himself anyway.

  20. Both Bryan Fisher and Tony Perkins are in documented HATE GROUPS. They are the scum of the Earth and everyone knows that. When they make these kinds of rash statements it only makes other people who are NOT insane realize just how insane THEY are!

  21. He’s obsessed by paedophiles. Why?

    I’m convinced fundamentalists stop themselves from acting on their urges by being obsessed in condemning them.

  22. he has the look of ted haggard somehow

  23. The level of stupidity of these people is astounding. As if a paedophile wouldn’t lie anyway.

  24. Bryan Fischer is a tired old fart who’s had his day in the sun. His kind of classic homophobia is manifested by delusions of righteousness; an inability to accept change; compulsive lying; an obsessive interest in the sex lives of others; an unhealthy need to suppress their fellow citizens; and oppressed feelings of same-sex attraction. There is no cure but with help, very close supervision and monitoring, homophobes such as he may be able to learn how to live productive lives and participate in our modern society.

  25. BRyan Fischer is a spokesman for the AFA – perhaps the absolutly most vicious anti gay group in America.

    Note the German spelling of FisCher. If you read about him on wiki you can see he is a racist also.

    But he prob makes millions from the money the american nutters send to him.

  26. ...Paddyswurds 29 Jan 2013, 8:54pm

    In the last 100 years ALL of the paedophile cases brought against the BSA were against breeder heterosexual men who were “pillars” of their communities… What is this vile bigot going to do about that one wonders…..

  27. Davisonbob 31 Jan 2013, 4:10pm

    Mr. Fischer you are the dumbest, most irrational religious pundit around. You do not read…you are ignorant of the topic and you know less than nothing about sexuality.
    Pedophiles are ALREADY in the ranks of BSA they are people like you..who tout themselves as being pillars of society while they diddle little boys. There is a VAST diffference between pedophiles and homosexuals. MOST pedophiles are straight…
    Will you get educated or shut up. All you do is fan the fires of hate and bigotry…

  28. Davisonbob 31 Jan 2013, 4:12pm

    NO, Mr. Fischer the left is not trying to destroy you…you will destroy yourself with your lies and vile, bigoted hatred.
