Okay, the homophobia is one thing, but that last sentence brings a new definition to redundancy.

Fischer argued that discrimination based on behavior is justified and absolutely appropriate ...
But, does Fischer realize that his being a complete and utter asshole puts him on the line for the harshest sort of discrimination?
His behavior is appalling 24/7.
Look out for that boomerang, Bryan, for it's a comin' back at ya'.

Something isn't immoral just because you personally don't like it. It has to cause harm first.
5/9/2012 3:33:25 AM
Personally, I think that people who dare to quote Martin Luther King to argue in favor of discrimination deserve to be kicked to death. But that's just my opinion.

The 'Homosexuality==Immoral' meme is strong in this one.
How do sane people get these scripture-munching dingle berries to understand that they don't have to participate in gay sex if they don't want to?

Radio program? I reckon. A guy that shameless probably wasn't wearing any pants.

Wow, way to miss the point of the speech
5/9/2012 4:28:25 AM
""you begin to see the implications when it comes to homosexuality because you're dealing there with issues of content of character and you are dealing with issues of behavior and conduct and it's perfectly appropriate to discriminate against immoral conduct":
Yeah I see the implications. Your character is bigotry and as such discrimination against you is justified and absolutely appropriate. We are dealing with issues of behavior and conduct and it's perfectly appropriate to discriminate against immoral conduct":
5/9/2012 4:30:11 AM
Okay, Fischer went too far this time.

Some asshat tried this tack years ago. MLK's family put paid to that horseshit immediately.
But cerebrally-challenged BryBry doesn't learn from the past. Or apparently from anything else.

The irony meter just exploded.
5/9/2012 4:54:20 AM
Speaking of behavior worthy of lynching.
String up a preacher today.

Of course it's perfectly appropriate to "discriminate against immoral conduct".
And as soon as anyone comes up with an explanation for why homosexuality should be regarded as immoral conduct that doesn't rely on "I think it's icky!" (not actually relevant to morality in any way) and "God said so!" (because until someone can provide any actual evidence for the existence of a deity, evidence for his/her/hir/their/etc view of homosexuality and a reason for accepting that deity/ies opinion other than "might makes right", that's not actually relevant either) I will happily change my mind on the subject.
Since I am fairly confident that will never happen, I'm left to conclude that a) causing harm to people, except where unavoidable or he lesser of two evils, is immoral; b) discriminating against LGBTQ people causes them great harm, c) not discriminating against them doesn't harm anyone, and therefore d) discriminating against them is immoral behaviour.

You just took the words of a fighter for equality and turned them into a meaning that justifies discrimination?
I do not know what to say...
5/9/2012 5:04:31 AM
"as ye would that men would do unto you, do you also unto them in like manner"
Take this together with "Judge not lest you also be judged".
Where does this allow for discrimination of any kind? Or did Jesus get it wrong resulting in a contradiction of scriptures? No. I think rather it is Fischer twisting meanings to suit his agenda - the Homophobe Agenda.
You don't have much wriggle room for your blatant bigotry. what is worse, you are using the words of someone who fought against bigotry and hatred to bolster your own hatred. I wonder are you capable of realising what a hypocrite that make you.

See, music fans, THIS is what "murdering a classic" looks like. Not that cover of your favourite song some other band did, but this guy right here quoting one of the greatest anti-bigotry speeches of all time and using it to promote bigotry.
5/9/2012 5:08:57 AM
I think MLK was against cheerful people.
I choose to believe that in his vague remark about judging people by character he meant cheerfulness insted of the infinite number of character traits that could be applied to the sentence.
5/9/2012 5:28:52 AM
Except that biological differences, like eye color, dominant hand, and sexual orientation don't fall into the categories of character or morality.
5/9/2012 5:34:57 AM
Go die in a fire, Bryan.
5/9/2012 5:44:10 AM
5/9/2012 5:47:32 AM
Frelus, it means that morally, this man is a cancan without pants.
5/9/2012 5:55:28 AM
I've always been of the opinion that Mr. Fischer is--ahem--compensating for something. Now, I doubt that is the case for all anti-gay zealots, but I suspect he is gayer than boysenberry compote.
5/9/2012 6:01:02 AM
We can certainly judge Bryan by the content of his character, can't we?
5/9/2012 6:05:03 AM
Bryan, who says you are the one who gets to determine what's moral or immoral?
5/9/2012 6:16:19 AM
Considering how brutally Fischer perverts the words of Jesus when it suits him, perverting the words of King must be equally easy.
