Rachel Maddow reported that the American Family Association (AFA) has fired radio show host Bryan Fischer as its official spokesman, while letting Fischer keep his radio show on the organization’s radio network.
According to Right Wing Watch, the move apparently came as a result of growing controversy surrounding a trip to Israel for Republican National Committee delegates bankrolled by the AFA.
It didn’t look good for the Republican National Committee that the group paying for the trip to Israel has a spokesman and radio host who believes that gay people are modern-day Nazis who are responsible for the Holocaust. Fischer also reportedly demands Jewish conversion to Christianity (and wants to require conversion for non-Christian immigrants), and insists that non-Christians have no First Amendment rights: “Counterfeit religions, alternative religions to Christianity, have no First Amendment right to the free exercise of the religion.”
Wikipedia: “The American Family Association (AFA) is a United States non-profit organization that promotes fundamentalist Christian values. It opposes same-sex marriage, pornography, and abortion.”
