Bryan Fischer has never been one to mince words when it comes to his views on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
In a new column, the American Family Association's senior analyst has his sights set on GLAAD, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and other LGBT advocacy groups, calling them part of an "evil conspiracy" out to "celebrate" homosexuality.
Writing for One News Now, Fischer notes:
While most homosexuals aren’t in some kind of sinister partnership with nefarious forces, the same cannot be said of homosexual activists. Wikipedia lists no less than 72 groups in the United States alone whose mission is to normalize the “infamous crime against nature,” to demand special rights on the basis of aberrant sexual behavior, to radically redefine marriage and the family, and to demonize pro-family organizations as “hate groups” for disagreeing with them.
The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) are in fact part of an evil conspiracy to celebrate behavior that according to Romans 1 is “contrary to nature,” consists of “shameless acts” and causes participants to “receiv(e)...in themselves the due penalty for their error.”
"We cannot and must not surrender when our most deeply cherished values and the Constitution itself are being shredded," he adds. "This is no time for the sunshine soldier and the summer patriot."

Jeremy Hooper, Special Projects Consultant for GLAAD, shrugged off Fischer's accusations in a blog post, saying his and other LGBT advocacy groups "must be doing something right" to have sparked the ire of the AFA pundit.
"We see ourselves as not needing to be rehabbed the way you might treat a drug addict while he publicly seeks the opposite," he wrote. "If fighting against his chilling vision is a 'conspiracy,' then count me among the proud conspirators."
Fischer's rants against the LGBT community have become a near-weekly staple of his "Focal Point" radio show. In recent weeks, Fischer has suggested that the closure of an Oregon bakery whose owners refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple was evidence of a "homosexual mafia."
He's also repeatedly slammed President Barack Obama's stance on marriage equality and the LGBT community, suggesting, "We have a commander-in-chief who has made it a criminal offense to be a sincerely devoted follower of Jesus Christ in the U.S. military."
