Bryan Fischer Suggests Gay Activism Will Send Women Into Combat To Die

Bryan Fischer is on a big, anti-gay roll this week.

After condemning the Boy Scouts of America for rethinking a longstanding policy barring gays from participating, the American Family Association pundit took aim at another target: the U.S. Pentagon's decision to lift its ban on women serving in combat roles.

Fischer, whose anti-gay declarations have become a near-weekly staple of his "Focal Point" radio show, drew a bizarre link between women in combat and the "sinister, malicious" bullying from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, Right Wing Watch reported.

The 2011 repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," Fischer claims, will see a drop in the number of qualified soliders who are willing to enlist in the military, and as a result, "they're going to have a tough time filling their ranks."

He adds, "So they’re going to have to go to the draft, and that means your daughters are going to be pulled into the draft and they could be sent into combat to die, whether they want to do it or not, because of Big Gay."
