American Family Association Rejects Any Gay SCOTUS Nominee

Thursday, April 15, 2010


When the subject is a potential gay or lesbian U.S. Supreme Court justice, the American Family Association doesn’t even try to mask its homophobia. In an unintentionally comedic missive appearing on the AFA website, Bryan Fischer writes:

If we elevate an open homosexual to the Supreme Court, we will be elevating someone who freely admits that he (generic use) engages routinely in behavior that was still a felony in every state in the Union as recently as 1962 and a felony in the other 49 states until 1972.

Sodomy is still a felony in the criminal code of about a dozen states. The Lawrence decision of 2003, an egregious act of judicial activism, prohibited enforcement of these laws, but the fact remains that 25% of the states in the Union still regard it as criminal behavior.

We simply should not elevate to the highest court in the land people who are known for engaging in sexually abnormal behavior which would technically make them felons in a quarter of the states over which they will have jurisdiction.

Tim Donaghy, an experienced NBA referee, was recently banned for life when it was revealed that he placed bets on games he himself officiated. He eventually plead guilty to federal conspiracy charges and is in prison as we speak. You just can’t have a referee – or a judge – who has a built-in bias towards one team or the other.

A homosexual judge cannot help but give the home-field advantage to every legal team appearing before him who represents homosexual causes. It will be impossible for the visiting team, the team representing sexual normalcy and natural marriage, to get a fair shake in his courtroom.

Got that? According to Fischer, because gays and lesbians play for other “team,” we lack the required strength of character, historical perspective, and intellectual capacity to interrupt complex legal issues. An gay or lesbian SCOTUS justice would naturally make law that favors the greater LGBT community, while ignoring the great legal tradition of impartiality that characterizes the High Court.

    Good thing these sick Mo-Fo’s have absolutely no vote on whichever Supreme Court Nominee President Obama picks…. I imagine Oral sex is still Illegal in some of those same states…. and I dare you to find any people, of either sex, who don’t practice that, in marriage or out of it. American Family Association…. STFU!!!!

    Bryan Fischer wrote a terrible rip off of the Seinfeld riff on Elaine being lonely and wanting to turn a gay guy into a straight guy but Jerry, patiently explains to her about what team he’s playing for.

    Conservatives, as usual lack all originality.

    Let’s win one for the team! đŸ™‚

    Right. Gays and lesbians are intellectually inferior to straight judges — NOT!

    The American Family Association are populated with bigots, racists and homophobes and now, a number of them are self-confessed Teabaggers as well.

    As long as I can remember, the AFA has hated gay people and gone out of their way to bad mouth the LGBT community. Of course, they exploit their homophobia to raise donations which serves their bottomline.
