American Family Association: Gay Activists Are Bringing Back Slavery By Forcing Businesses To Serve Them

Last week a Kentucky appeals court ruled that it’s legal to refuse to serve LGBT customers in the name of Jesus. American Family Association radio host Bryan Fischer reacts:

For the government to force someone to do work that violates his conscience is nothing less than tyranny. And for a man to be compelled under threat of punishment to perform work against his will is slavery.

The reality is that the LGBT lobby is the reincarnation of some of the worst elements of the mindless prejudice of the Old South in its irrational venom toward people (Christians) who are not like them. The rainbow flag is the new Confederate flag. It is as much a symbol of bigotry as that flag ever was in the minds of the left.

Bottom line: in Frankfort, Kentucky, homosexual activists tried to reintroduce slavery to the Deep South. They failed in the attempt. And the Constitution’s protections for religious liberty and freedom of speech were upheld.

You may recall that among Fischer’s many batshit crazy claims is that the First Amendment only applies to Christians and that Native Americans are “morally disqualified” from owning property in the United States because they resisted being indoctrinated into Christianity.

      If he has cancer it’s because he isn’t praying hard enough and jeebus hates him.

    • Uncle Mark

      My mama would say that most people get more sympathetic and less judgemental the closer they get to the “jumping-off place,” especially when they’re staring death in the face. Then she would look at this guy and call him a pathetic, decidedly ignorant, unrepentant ass.

      • Falconlights

        Kudos to our mama! That describes this jerk perfectly

    • I’m sorry to hear that poor cancer has to put up with him.

      Prostate cancer is a bad way to go. I’m good with that. I hope while he’s suffering, he considers the suffering he imposed on others.

    • Six Pins Delores

      It is good he is on radio. Bryan is a sick piece of work and I imagine whilst being in his presence, there is an subtle but overwhelming and distracting aroma of farts in the air

    • BlindBill

      you would think that they were being thrown to the lions …. selling cake and T-shirts to “a small population” of customers your holy book tells you are sinners, while happily serving all of the rest of the book defined “sinners”, is definitely a 1st world problem … truly woeful to those merchants making a profit off the people they choose to hate.

      • McSwagg

        We’re much worse than mere sinners to them. They gleefully declare us abominations worthy of death and deny that they are calling for violence. They see advocating for our death to be an “act of christain love” that they generously bestow upon us.

    • Uncle Mark

      Except at the end of the day, it’s not about t-shirts, flowers, or cake. It’s also about being denied medical care, service in a restaurant, bank, store, getting help from the police or fire dept. The moment a mere baker can deny service to an LGBT (or suspected LGBT) person, the moment any other person in any other profession can do the same. For example: last year there was a obstetrician, who denied treatment to a child because she did not approve of the lesbian mothers. What’s next an EMT, who refuses to rush a gay man to the hospital?

      Don’t be fooled; these fuckers want us to sound petty…as if it’s ONLY about cake & flowers, when it’s really about so much more !!

      • RemusL

      Alone in the Oval Office, Mr. Trump began the discussion by condemning leaks to the news media, saying that Mr. Comey should consider putting reporters in prison for publishing classified information, according to one of Mr. Comey’s associates.

      And blatantly unconstitutional.

      • Danieruw

        I wish every journalist or pundit or whatever on TV would blatantly ask any Repugnican why they hate America! Ask Sean Hannity why he hates America (in those words)! Ask Ann Coulter why she hates America! Ask all those assholes on The Five whose names I never bothered to learn why they fucking hate America! This is what the Fox “News” crew does to us!

        I am a native New Englander, and I think that everything south of Manhattan is the south, everything south of New Jersey the deep south. I have been gently corrected by the natives of my new state. Repeatedly.

    Fuck Bryan Fischer and the horse he rode in on.

  • Luther Kreiger

    It would require writing the equivalent of an entire set of Encyclopedia Bullshittica to even begin to unpack and then describe just how factually and morally wrong this infantile, flailing babbling is.

    I would call the pathetic ramblings these Christopaths have been reduced to now that so many of their old methods no longer work in order to try and sell their hatred as morality comically inept, but there are STILL way too many that actually believe this kind of linguistic vomit for that kind of dismissal to be safe.

  • HZ81

    Yes, because during slavery, the slaves made the owners work.

    Right-wing history majors rule. Or, not at all.

  • Lars Littlefield

    I foresee a Supreme court sort of upholding part of Kentucky’s nasty law, but only within the context of worship and church-related activities. The Public Accommodation stuff will override this nonsense with regard to being served at Dennys in our fabulous rainbow flag t-shirts and flip flops.

    • Talisman

      If rumors are true, then Kennedy is retiring at the of the term, and we’ve lost the SCOTUS.

    • Steverino

      Correct, which also means the law would be totally redundant since private accommodations (churches, religious organizations) already have this right. Symbolic only, completely unnecessary.

  • 2patricius2

    Just wait till we bring out the whips and the chains, Bryan baby…..

    Actually, Bryan’s comparison is revolting. To compare the way slaves were treated with the responsibility for merchants who serve the public, to serve all the public, is pathetic.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Honey, that’s not slavery, it’s called following the public accommodations laws. It says so, right there in that book you keep waving while yelling obscenities at gay people. Here, it’s right here:

    Romans 13 1-7: “13 All of you must yield to the government rulers. No one rules unless God has given him the power to rule, and no one rules now without that power from God. 2 So those who are against the government are really against what God has commanded. And they will bring punishment on themselves. 3 Those who do right do not have to fear the rulers; only those who do wrong fear them. Do you want to be unafraid of the rulers? Then do what is right, and they will praise you. 4 The ruler is God’s servant to help you. But if you do wrong, then be afraid. He has the power to punish; he is God’s servant to punish those who do wrong. 5 So you must yield to the government, not only because you might be punished, but because you know it is right.6 This is also why you pay taxes. Rulers are working for God and give their time to their work. 7 Pay everyone, then, what you owe. If you owe any kind of tax, pay it. Show respect and honor to them all.”

    Now shut the fuck up you tired old cretin.

  • rapscallion

    But he’s right!!!!…except for the facts that slaves were never allowed to own anything…were never paid a single cent….and were never asked about their religious affiliation by anyone…because they weren’t entitled to have one

    • thatotherjean

      Actually, none of those points is universally true. Some slaves were allowed to own various things, some were paid–not for their time, but their masters sometimes bought vegetables from the gardens their slaves were allowed to grow, or crafts that they produced on their own time, or part of the money their masters made from hiring them out to someone else–and some were encouraged to become Christians, with emphasis on passages encouraging slaves to obey their masters. The point isn’t that slaves weren’t ALLOWED to own things, or make money, or choose a religion–it’s that they weren’t ENTITLED to do so.

      • rapscallion

        Those are distinctions without a difference of the most offensive kind! You’re an apologist for black, chattel slavery by citing the rarest…and in some cases completely spurious…examples.
        Shame on you

        • thatotherjean

          Such distinctions were not particularly rare, and none of them are spurious. Some slaves were allowed to buy their freedom; where do you think the money came from? If you like, I can cite sources for my other examples.

          Nor am I an apologist for black chattel slavery; some slaves were treated reasonably, but a great many were not. All were denied freedoms their masters took for granted. My point was simply that everything depended on the whim of their masters: while some enslaved people were permitted the things I pointed out, none held them by right, and they could be denied their “privileges” at any time.

          • rapscallion

            riiiight. and we all miss the sound of the happy darkies whistling in the cotton fields. Just stop

            from the National Humanities Center,
            Opportunities for most enslaved African Americans to attain freedom were few to none. Some were freed by their owners to honor a pledge, to grant a reward, or, before the 1700s, to fulfill a servitude agreement. A few were bought by Quakers, Methodists, and religious activists for the sole purpose of freeing them (a practice soon banned in the southern states). Many ran away to free territory, and some of these “fugitives” succeeded in avoiding capture and forced to the South (see Theme II: ENSLAVEMENT: #8, Runaways, and Theme III: COMMUNITY: #7, Fugitives.)

            A rare option was “self-purchase” (the term itself revealing the base illogic of slavery).

          • thatotherjean

            We’re talking past each other. You were saying “absolutely none” and I was responding with “No, uncommon but possible.” I doubt that we will ever agree, though neither one of us supports slavery, in any form.

  • Bryan

    The appeals court did not rule that it’s legal to refuse service to LGBT customers. It ruled that the business owner couldn’t be forced to print t-shirts with a message he felt uncomfortable with.

    • lymis

      That’s the distinction the courts have to hammer on.

      If you sell it to anyone, you have to sell it to everyone. It’s the PRODUCT you can refuse to make or sell, not the customer you can refuse to sell to.

  • Uncle Mark

    Wait…what? Bryan Fischer in June 2015 claimed that the Confederate flag was a Democratic problem. So if the Rainbow flag is now equivalent to the Confederate flag as he says above, does this mean that he HATES the Confederate flag now, too? Does he now affirm to HATE the Confederacy and elements of the Old South that he now calls HATEFUL? Does this mean that he hates Southern Baptism that embraced slavery too? Can we assume that he will do all he can to empower the Black community?

    Gotta love these Christianista hypocrites. They reduce lawful business standards and requirements to SLAVERY. What o’bunch of goddam drama queens. If you want to equate that to slavery, perhaps we need to punish those failing to meet business requirements by throwing them in irons to work the fields. I know a certain bigoted Iowa Congressman, who would much prefer to have White people working Iowa fields than those “Mexicans with cantaloupe-sized thighs.” They can get close to god and his growing creation, under his burning sun, or cold rain, while getting a small inkling of what slavery’s about. Maybe, to add to their learning experience we can throw in some brutal beatings, rape, occasional murder, wretched housing, and substandard food.

    Bryan Fisher’s inner bigot is overwhelming his judgement again.

    What is good for the goose, should be good for the gander.
    Is this the world Bryan is asking for?
    When you start a public business, you have to serve the public.

    This is just called ‘a contract.’

  • “And for a man to be compelled under threat of punishment to perform work against his will is slavery.”

    That is not the definition of slavery at all, Brian. But It is sexist to say man/his.

    So, apparently when yer religion worships a scapegoat for centuries, you end up projecting your faults and misdeeds so hard you end up a hatemongering, pathetic clown over retail cake frosting sales. It’s pretty funny that so many Christians keep feeling more and more ‘enslaved’ by repeating one single case of nearly having to frost a cake or people they hate over and over. |

    Or could these hate preachers be just trying to incite pogroms?

    Do you even understand what slavery is, you doddering fool?

    I had to pay a parking ticket last week. Just like everything else I am forced to do by by a tyrannical government, it was bringing back slavery. After all, i was parked on a public street paid for by my tax dollars.

    But I guess i shouldn’t complain considering how well off slaves were, according to the Right .

    Slavery involved denying humans any human rights and dignity. It involved splitting families. It involved forced, unpaid, labor. It involved physical denigration of a race of people. Gay folks are asking to receive services or goods for which they are paying. Yeah, I see the similarities…./s

  • Fissure is still as Bizarro as usual – these sad “religious freedom” rulings relating to businesses refusing to serve LGBTQ people because of so-called “sincerely held beliefs” are just the first step toward returning to racial segregation – especially in the South, where there are bound to be white restaurant owners who will refuse to serve persons of color because they believe that whole “Children of Ham” story from Genesis applies to black folks,and it would violate their beliefs to serve people who ought to be slaves by biblical injunction.

    The fact that he accuses LGBTQ people of somehow trying to impose slavery? Totally BIZARRO, and truly a matter of Fissure projecting his own twisted and evil motivations on others.

    Considering the source of the claim only some Christian zealots would actually believe this line I guess AFA thinks only they are exempt from following federal laws against discrimination against others but if they have to follow that very law they are being persecuted and being made into slaves I guarantee if someone refused service to them because f their religion they would sue
