Bryan Fischer decries "homo-fascist thugs," calls on pro-gay judges to resign

Bryan Fischer has once again blatantly indicated an apparent belief that fascism is, not the process by which policies are enforced, but the practice of supporting any policies he would not support himself.

Last week, the Arizona legislature passed a bill that would allow businesses to legally discriminate in the name of "religious liberty." The legislation was designed to be discriminatory against homosexuals, though opponents have noted that the flimsy language could permit businesses to discriminate based on religion, ethnicity or gender as well.

Needless to say, Fischer, who has proven time and time again to dislike anyone of a different sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity or gender other than his own, is fully supportive of the legislation, and decried gay activists as "jack-booted homo-fascist thugs."

"They are jack-booted homo-fascist thugs who want to use the totalitarian and tyrannical power of the state to send men of faith to jail," he insisted. "That sounds far more like Nazi Germany than the United States of America."

Which is a bit contradictory, given that, on Friday, Fischer had insisted that any state Attorney General who does not enforce their state's anti-gay laws (which have already been declared unconstitutional) should resign.

"You resign and say the honorable thing for me to do is to step down so that my office can be fulfilled by somebody who can fulfill the oath of office," Fischer urged. "I am violating the sacred oath I took before Almighty God to uphold and defend the laws of this state. I am in egregious dereliction of duty and it's not morally right for me to continue in office."

This is not the first time Fischer has so blatantly contradicted himself. On immigration reform, Fischer argued that the law trumps any sort of moral argument one might possibly have, and only one day later, told his listeners to ignore the law if the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act.

Fischer's regard for fascism is not much different. Just as he cannot enshrine the law while simultaneously ignoring it, he cannot have his fascism and decry it too.
