Bryan Fischer, our favorite mouthpiece for the homophobic American Family Association who happens to have had same-sex “impulses” and a love for black men, is now taking aim at ABC’s hit sitcom Modern Family because of its progressive depiction of a gay married couple raising a child.
In an interview for a right-wing radio show in Idaho (and they’re always in Idaho), he just couldn’t get over the fact that the gay married couple continues to be portrayed in an absolutely positive light and apparently not for the deviants we really are.
“The portrait there that’s being presented is designed to make you think that same-sex households are wonderful, they’re loving, this is paradise, this is the optimum nurturing environment for children…You know, that’s the danger.
It’s just like getting a little bit of poison over a long period of time, eventually getting enough accumulation in there where it can be kind of lethal to the organism. It’s very corrosive; people are just watching TV to be entertained, not realizing that their view of life is being twisted in a way that’s very harmful to them and harmful to our culture.”
Perhaps someone should point Fischer to the study that found children raised in same-sex households to be happier and their families closer than those of married hetero couples?
Or maybe he could ask one of the two million children being raised by LGBT couples across the country how they feel about his comments.
Either way, it doesn’t matter. We wouldn’t want to poison his fragile little mind with the truth.
