Bryan Fischer has previously stated that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people should face job discrimination and implied that members of the community should be "delivered" from homosexual behavior.
So it comes as little surprise that the resident American Family Association pundit has now gone even further, claiming that homosexuality will be "responsible for the collapse of the Western economy.”
As Right Wing Watch first reported, Fischer slammed Tom Kostigen of Financial Advisor for the writer's criticism of Harvard University professor Niall Ferguson, who had originally claimed that British economist John Maynard Keynes' philosophy was flawed because he was gay, childless and therefore had no interest in future generations.
Calling Kostigen a member of the "gaystado," Fischer added, "[Keynes] was a narcissist, he was a hedonist and he was a homosexual. His view of history is very shortsighted, short-circuited, he cared about himself and his generation exclusively; so homosexuality in the end is going to be responsible for the collapse of the Western economy.”
Unfortunately for Fischer's argument, Ferguson has since apologized and retracted the comments, noting, "As those who know me and my work are well aware, I detest all prejudice, sexual or otherwise. My colleagues, students, and friends –- straight and gay –- have every right to be disappointed in me, as I am in myself."
