"Bryan Fischer: DADT Repeal Will Lead To ‘More Instances Of Pedophilia’"

Bryan Fischer, director of Issues Analysis at the American Family Association and right wing radio host, said on his September 26 program that the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” will cause “more instances of pedophilia now in the United States military.” He added that gays have a “proclivity toward the abuse of children.” Despite a complete lack of scientific evidence linking homosexuality to pedophilia, Fischer is not the first conservative to make such claims. Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee used the same argument to promote the Boy Scouts of America ban on gays. Watch Fischer’s remarks (via Right Wing Watch):
