"Will there be an incest pride day? Will there be a pedophilia pride day?"

No, Mr. Fischer. Next up is Anti-American Intolerant Hateful Bigot Pride Day.

I know you'll want to mark your calendar.

I'm shocked he knows the word "aberrant". Anyway, these bigots bespeak their own sexual desires when they go on these rants. They're the only ones talking about child rape, bestiality, etc. That's not on anyone else's mind but theirs.

Fossils are "markedly outdated or old-fashioned person or thing" - so as with all pre-historic relics, Bryan Fischer's intolerant, unenlightened and just plain rubbishy way of thinking is going to be extinct sooner rather than later!

I don't know why people have such difficulty drawing the line between acceptable and unacceptable sexual behaviour; its all about consent.

Rape is unacceptable because it directly ignores and violates a persons capacity for consent.

Statutory rape is unacceptable because children are incapable of giving informed consent. Of course setting a hard and fast age, whereby one day you cant consent and the next you can, is just a kind of statistical streamlining. Age is just short hand for mental capacity, maturity and experience. The difference in these qualities between individuals is key; its usually a horrible thing to prosecute a 16 year old for having consensual sex with a 15 year old, but there is almost always too big a difference between a 15 year old and a 30 year old or a 12 year old and a 16 year old. Pedophilia is an evil exploitation and manipulation of this difference.

The gulf between the aforementioned qualities in other animals and humans is immense. Perhaps some species, such as dolphins, come close enough, but the circumstances of their interactions with humans often involve captivity, coercion and grooming, and communication is hugely difficult. Consent is almost impossible.

Grooming is the problem with incest also; it is the psychological relationship between the two individuals that is of concern, not their genetics. In certain cases, primarily those of estrangement, informed consent is possible, but such cases are rare.

Homosexuality and bi sexuality have no inherent issues with consent, so are perfectly acceptable

That was a well-prepared and thoughtful response. I wish we'd handle all of our emotionally-charged disagreements with such informational dignity.
We teach children to reign in their raw feelings and be respectful--but feel perfectly justified to act like three-year-olds when someone does/says something that feels threatening to our sense of right and wrong - to respond in harsh judgmentalism is "righteous indignation".
The reciprocal of that logic is doubly true: it's okay to hurl attacks preemptively at those who do not conform to what we deem as morally acceptable, because it's our "duty" stand up for right--makes us feel as if we are always right--no need for further research or discussion.
Thank you for demonstrating civility in one of the most divisive issues in our society.

"but there is almost always too big a difference between a 15 year old and a 30 year old or a 12 year old and a 16 year old. Pedophilia is an evil exploitation and manipulation of this difference."

Two points of contention. Ageism has about as much place in our society as Racism. A gap in age difference also has nothing to do with consent, which you are so aptly trying to defend in the same breath. Additionally, Pedophilia deals with pre-pubescent children, and is not related to Ephebophilia, which carries no psychological pathology.

Looks like our dear friend Bryan Fischer is utilizing that good old slippery slope "argument".....

Hmm, I wonder if it's taking hold?

Nope. Still not convincing.

"Despite this endorsement, however, Fischer expressed some reservations about GOP candidate Mitt Romney. "In fact, in my judgement, he imposed same-sex marriage on Massachusetts and the U.S. by executive fiat," Fischer said."

God knows I don't make a practice of defending Romney, but this is just completely false. First, no one can "impose" "same sex marriage," seeing as how we don't legally require people ro marry someone of the same sex. Second, how could Romney, as governor of Massachsetts impose anything on the rest of the country? Third, He didn't use "Executive fiat" (whatever THAT is) in MA. He didn't even sign legislation. Marriage equality was acheived iin MA becuaseof a State Supreme Court decision.

This guy is just completely divorced from reality and facts.

This nation is in a rapid downward moral decline. Only the strong upright morally convicted will know right from wrong, The rest will not fair so well. Plain and simple. It is nothing that you can do about it as you see people destroying their lives. I say let them put these rocks in their bed, because they will have to lie on them.

How did gays cause the economic collapse? How did gays cause the turmoil going on in the mideast right now? How did gays cause the wars we seem to be mired in and can't seem to find a way out of? Oh, wait, they didn't do any of those things! Cons did! Persecuting gays won't solve a single real problem facing this country. If this country is in decline, it's because cons care more about what their neighbors do with their crotches then they do about real problems.

Why do you spend so much time speculating on the private lives and relationships of others? I'll bet your life is completely in order, giving you so much time to stick your nose under everyone elses tent.
