Bryan Fischer (AFA) wants to make homosexuality illegal in the USA, like Uganda

Homosexuality now against the law in Uganda, just as it was for 200 years in the US. It can be done.

Bryan Jonathan Fischer is the Director of Issues Analysis for the American Family Association (AFA).

I can't tell if he wants the death penalty for it, or just life imprisonment; it's unclear if the death penalty is still in the Ugandan bill or not:

U.S. officials offered a different account about the status of a draconian anti-gay bill in Uganda on Tuesday, saying the legislation had yet to move out of committee and disputing earlier media reports and State Department comments by saying the panel is incapable of removing the infamous death penalty provision from the legislation.

In an email to the Washington Blade on Tuesday, an informed source at the U.S. Embassy in Kampala said the bill is still in committee. That contradicts media reports on the bill — which imposes a penalty of life in prison for homosexual acts — that indicated the Legal & Parliamentary Affairs Committee had reported out the bill last week.

Additionally, the embassy source, who asked not to be named, said that the committee can only compile a report on the bill for recommendations to the bill, and can’t make changes to it. That means the panel can’t take out the death penalty provision for “aggravated homosexuality,” which media sources reported was removed.

An earlier version of the bill defined “aggravated homosexuality” as someone with HIV engaging in homosexual acts, having homosexual sex with a minor or the repeated offense of homosexuality.

The American Family Association (AFA) has been a long-time promoter of "traditional moral values" in the media, particularly television.

5. Bryan Fischer is a leading contender for Biggest Douche In The Universe.

And this year that's a very competitive category. Take Limbaugh and add equal parts insane religious fundamentalism and kill 'em all and let God sort 'em out conspiracy theories and you get Bryan Fischer.

6. Why do Fischer, Beck, et al get any publicity whatsoever?

They are disturbed individuals with a craving for attention, nothing more.
