A right-wing conservative radio host Bryan Fischer has suggested that gay men will not go to the 'eternal kingdom' for their parts in a 'homosexual liaison'.
68-year-old Fischer hosts the 'Focal Point' radio show on the American Family Radio Network as well as contributing to the American Family Association blog 'Instant Analysis.'
Fisher reportedly opposes abortion, gay adoption and national health care and has also previously claimed that homosexuality contributed to the rise of the Nazi party in 1930s Germany.
In a recent episode on his radio show, Fischer attacked gay presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg for 'flaunting his homosexuality in front of the nation' and that being a homosexual will stop someone getting into heaven.
Fischer goes on to lament homosexuals before using gay lingo to explain why neither men in a homosexual relationship will get into to so-called 'eternal kingdom.'
There’s a whole lot of sins that will keep you out of the kingdom of God. Here’s just a sample: Sexually immoral can’t get in. Idolaters can’t get in.
Adulterers can’t get in. Men who practice homosexuality, and the term that Paul uses there, he uses two different terms: one for the active participant, the other for the passive.
In the homosexual community, one is called the bottom.
The other is called the top. Not going to go into any more detail about that, but here Paul is talking about both parts of a homosexual liaison -- neither of them is going to make it into the eternal kingdom.
Fischer's comments on gay men and their sexual preferences have been widely mocked on Twitter.
This isn't the first time that Fischer has used Buttigieg to criticise homosexuality. In a column on the far-right website OneNewsNow, Fischer claimed that the South Bend mayor has an "extremist LGBT agenda" and that he "threatens everything that you and I cherish."
He added that his sexuality and 'sexual proclivities' should disqualify him from the White House and if elected could instigate a "homosexuality über alles [German for 'above all']."
Buttigieg's sexual proclivities are enough all by themselves to disqualify him from the Oval Office. Under a Buttigieg presidency, it would indeed be 'homosexuality uber alles.
Buttigieg’s own sexual preference is a huge problem in all this. His identity is wrapped up in getting societal approval for his behaviour.
He cannot live in a society that does not celebrate his sexual choices. If that means trampling on the First Amendment, tough darts.
