Two high-profile right-wing pundits are kicking off May with slams to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
As Right Wing Watch is reporting, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer quoted Martin Luther King, Jr.'s iconic "I Have a Dream" speech to argue in favor of discrimination against gays on his "Focal Point" program yesterday.
Noting that King had hope to "live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character," Fischer -- who has previously endorsed the notion that the HIV virus is not the true cause of AIDS -- continued, "You begin to see the implications when it comes to homosexuality, because you're dealing there with issues of content of character. You are dealing with issues of behavior and conduct, and it's perfectly appropriate to discriminate against immoral conduct."
Right Wing Watch also reports that similarly, Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) President Peter LaBarbera took to the airwaves to decry not only members of the LGBT community, but the Obama administration as well.
"The Obama administration has turned the United States into a huge gay-rights government," LaBarbera, who appeared on Michael Brown's "Line of Fire" radio program, said. "There's lots of government and states, whether they're Muslim or like ardently Christian nations like Uganda that don't want, they don't share the caviler attitude of the West toward homosexuality, they certainly don't want to promote it. And all of a sudden Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have turned the United States into a pro-homosexual regime and it's just despicable."
