Bryan Fischer Of American Family Association Slams Gay Marriage Victories, Same-Sex Parents

You didn't expect Election Night's historic same-sex marriage victories to pass without the inevitable commentary from Bryan Fischer, did you?

Appearing on "The David Pakman Show," the American Family Association's pundit spoke at length about marriage equality while slamming gay parenting and implying that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people could be "exorcized."

"We know that people can get delivered from homosexual behavior," Fischer says in the interview. "We believe in the reality of spiritual forces, just like Jesus did."

After Pakman tries unsuccessfully to shift the conversation away from Texas sociologist Mark Regnerus' highly-criticized same-sex parenting study, Fischer goes on to note, "The parallel with race, when it comes to homosexuality, is convenient but it is invalid. I'll stand with Colin Powell on that one. Sexual behavior is always a matter of choice."
