AFA's Bryan Fischer Blames Hitler Crimes Against Humanity on Homosexuality

     The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer recently made claims on his radio show that Hitler was gay and that he surrounded himself with masculine gays to carry out his evil plans.  Big surprise.  Another fundamentalist Christian blaming gays for the evils of the world.

     The AFA was founded by Methodist Pastor Doland E. Wildmon thirty-two years ago and has a mission of bringing "traditional family values" to our country and making it "a culture based on Biblical truth."  One of the purposes listed on AFA's website is to work for "Media Integrity."

     Here's the video of Fischer's rant.  How's that for media integrity?

    Transcript via Towleroad:
     Said Fischer: "So Hitler himself was an active homosexual. And some people wonder, didn't the Germans, didn't the Nazis, persecute homosexuals? And it is true they did; they persecuted effeminate homosexuals. But Hitler recruited around him homosexuals to make up his Stormtroopers, they were his enforcers, they were his thugs. And Hitler discovered that he could not get straight soldiers to be savage and brutal and vicious enough to carry out his orders, but that homosexual solders basically had no limits and the savagery and brutality they were willing to inflict on whomever Hitler sent them after. So he surrounded himself, virtually all of the Stormtroopers, the Brownshirts, were male homosexuals."

As a gay man I get so tired of being blamed by religious nuts for everything that is wrong with the world. There is no evidence for any of Fischer's claims. Perhaps it's not surprising that someone who believes in a sky fairy can easily fabricate other nonsense. It is so dangerous though, and not far removed from the same sort of bile that, not so long ago, Christians spouted about Jews and black people. The Gospel of Hate indeed.
