People Have A 'Natural Revulsion' To Gays That They Got From God, Bryan Fischer Claims

The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer defended opposition to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights, arguing that anti-LGBT sentiment was a "natural revulsion."

As Right Wing Watch first reported, Fischer told his "Focal Point" listeners that the term "sodomy" has become culturally obsolete since "it's an ugly word, because it refers to an ugly practice."

"It’s not the word, it’s what it describes, it’s what it refers to," he said. "We have a natural revulsion to that kind of behavior just as we do. We got that from God. God reacts the same way to homosexual behavior, to sodomy, as we do.”

Fischer, whose personal opposition to LGBT causes is well-established, seems eager to have the term re-embraced. Describing marriage equality as "pseudo, counterfeit," and "fake," Fischer told "Focal Point" listeners last year, "I refer to homosexual marriage as 'sodomy-based marriage,'" Right Wing Watch also originally reported.

He also slammed the U.S. Supreme Court's Oct. 6 decision to turn away same-sex marriage appeals from Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin, calling it "the de facto Roe vs. Wade of sodomy-based marriage."
