Bryan Fischer: ‘Obama isn’t a Christian because he supports gays’

Bryan Fischer of the hate group American Family Association has said that Barack Obama’s support of LGBT people means he is not a Christian.

Fischer said on his radio show: “I do not know what goes on inside Barack Obama’s heart, but I do know that he is not a sincerely devoted follower of Jesus Christ. So, in my mind, that means he’s not a Christian.

“Nobody can support and promote and celebrate homosexual behavior who is a sincerely devoted follower of Christ. It’s impossible.

“He walks like a Muslim. He talks like a Muslim. He sounds like a Muslim. He acts like a Muslim.”

Mr Obama’s relationship to religion has been well documented in his autobiographies. He was educated in a variety of different religious schools and raised in a religiously diverse family. As an adult, he was baptised into the United Church of Christ which is a progressive denomination that advocates for same-sex marriage.

In 2008, Obama said in an interview with Christian Today: “I am a Christian, and I am a devout Christian. I believe in the redemptive death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

“I believe that that faith gives me a path to be cleansed of sin and have eternal life. But most importantly, I believe in the example that Jesus set by feeding the hungry and healing the sick and always prioritizing the least of these over the powerful.”

Bryan Fischer has previously said that Mr Obama has ordered all Christians to “drop dead” by signing a bill outlawing discrimination against gay people.
