Then there is this:
People For the American Way is calling on three potential Republican presidential candidates to tell Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association that the First Amendment applies to all Americans and doesn’t exclude Muslims.Fischer also had this to say about gays:
Fischer wrote Thursday the First Amendment was only meant to protect Christians. On Friday, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee were scheduled to appear on Fischer’s radio show following appearances at a controversial gathering of Iowa pastors in West Des Moines known as the Iowa Renewal Project.
Fischer claimed in 2010, while his group was spending around $140,000 in Iowa to oust three Supreme Court justices, that Adolf Hitler was gay and hired gays to be Nazi stormtroopers for their “savagery,” that homosexuals should be banned from public office, and having fewer homosexual students would reduce teen suicide rates. In December, he called for homosexual sex to be made illegal because it was as dangerous as intravenous drug use.Now, I am very much against the concept of gay marriage, but really? Is it necessary (or accurate for that matter) to describe homosexuals for their "savagery?"
I join the call for Huckabee and Barbour to condemn Fischer. I know they won't and I won't even bother extending the call to Gingrich and Bachmann. This is just another example of how responsible conservatives need to stand up and reclaim the Republican Party.
