Anti-gay Christian radio host Bryan Fischer has claimed that the “Gay Gestapo” has brought back slavery and “become our new slave masters”.
He wrote on his blog on the American Family Association website: “Slavery, by definition, is involuntary servitude. It is being forced to provide labor or produce a product against one’s own will.
“When a man is forced, under threat of being sent to jail, to do work that he would not do unless he was compelled to do it, he is no longer a free man but a slave.
“We fought a brutal civil war over this very issue, and took a pledge as a nation that we would never tolerate slavery again.
“Apparently someone forgot to tell the Stormtroopers in the homosexual movement.
“The leaders of the Gay Gestapo have become our new slave masters. They can now send us to the hole if we refuse the massa’s demands.”
Fischer then referred to baker Jack Phillips, who has said he will stop baking wedding cakes altogether after it was ruled discriminatory to refuse to serve a gay couple.
He said: “Not only is Phillips being reduced to slavery, he is now the victim of tyranny as well since he is being compelled by the government to violate his own conscience.
“So meet our new overlords, the new owners of the American plantation, the gay mafia. All hail Big Gay, our new slave masters.”
