Bryan Fischer, director of Issues Analysis at the American Family Association and right wing radio host said Thursday on his radio show that the U.S. Constitution and the “homosexual agenda” cannot coexist. As such, he argued, the only way to preserve liberty, freedom, and the First Amendment was to defeat the “forces of homosexual activism.”

Right Wing Watch notes that Fischer told listeners:

We in America are gonna have to choose between the homosexual agenda and liberty, because we cannot have both. We have to choose between the homosexual agenda and freedom. We have to choose between the homosexual agenda and the Constitution, because we cannot have both. We have to choose between the homosexual agenda and the First Amendment, because we cannot have both. Ladies and gentlemen, I’m telling you, we have got to understand we cannot give an inch, we cannot give one centimeter, we cannot give one millimeter to the forces of homosexual activism. We cannot accommodate, we can’t compromise, we can’t find middle ground, they cannot be reasoned with, they cannot be compromised with, they cannot be dialogued with, they can only be defeated.

It is comments like this the demonstrate exactly why the American Family Association has been designated an anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Amazingly, in recent years, Rep. Steve King (R-IA), former Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R-MN), Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and even Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have all done interviews with Fischer despite his shocking history of similarly hateful and dishonest comments.
