Bryan Fischer a US radio host, and spokesman for the American Family Association, has weighed in on the debate around a gay teacher who was fired by a Catholic school for naming her same-sex partner in her mother’s obituary.
In the video, posted by Right Wing Watch, Fischer commends the school for discriminating against Hale, and says that it is right to discriminate against gay people’s “immoral behaviour”, and that Hale was engaging in “sexual misconduct”.
Speaking on his show, Focal Point, he says: “We have go to reclaim the ‘discrimination’ word. The language has gotten to the place where everybody thinks if it is discrimination it’s bad. ‘Discrimination’ itself has become a bad word.”
“The school discriminated against this teacher, yes they absolutely did and they should have,” Fischer continues.
“They were absolutely right to do it. There are times when discrimination is the right thing to do. They were discriminating against this woman’s sexual behaviour; sexual misconduct; immoral sexual behaviour. We should make no apologies for discriminating against that kind of behaviour.
He goes on to say: “We discriminate against shoplifters. My point is that we discriminate against immoral behaviour all the time, and we should. So let’s reclaim the discrimination word.
“It is right to discriminate against people who engage in aberrant sexual behaviour We should discriminate against people like that. It is right to discriminate against people who engage in that kind of behaviour.”
Bryan Fischer previously came to the defence of an anti-gay evangelist who is being sued for supporting a Ugandan bill to intensify punishments for homosexuality, and claimed that “the left” is trying to “destroy” him.
