Anti-gay activist Bryan Fischer has claimed that Barack Obama is ordering Christians to “drop dead”, by signing an Executive Order outlawing anti-gay workplace discrimination.
The American Family Association president claimed on Twitter that Obama was breaking the First Amendment by signing the order today, which protects the gender identity and sexual orientation of workers among federal contractors.
Fischer claimed: “In LGBT order, Obama elevates sexual deviancy, sexual disorders and sexual confusion above the First Amendment.”
“Obama’s message in LGBT exec order to every Christian-run business in America: drop dead. It’s faith or funding.
Signing the order, Obama had said:
“It doesn’t make much sense, but today in America, millions of our citizens go to work with the awareness they could lose their job because of who they are – lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender – and that’s wrong.
“We’re here to do what we can to make it right. To bend the arc of justice, just a little bit, in the right direction
“This is not a matter of political correctness. People lose their jobs. Their lives are threatened, their families are threatened. It’s time to address this injustice for every American.
“We’ve got a long way to go, but I hope [today] you are reminded of the extraordinary progress we have made. We are on the right side of history.”
Failed Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum recently appeared on Bryan Fischer’s radio show, despite the host’s extremist views.
