Bryan Fischer Attacks CNN; Network Is 'Gay Gestapo'

Text of article:

Bryan Fischer of the Christian conservative American Family Association (AFA) has called CNN the “gay gestapo.”
During an appearance last week on the network, Fischer was abruptly cut off by CNN anchor Carol Costello who objected to his anti-gay rhetoric.

The segment was a discussion on the AFA's objection to the Southern Poverty Law Center's (SPLC) 11th annual Mix It Up at Lunch Day. The October 30th event encourages schoolchildren to eat lunch with someone they normally might not in an attempt to break up social cliques.

In an e-mail to members, the AFA called the project “a nationwide push to promote the homosexual lifestyle in public schools.”
“You know it's interesting to me that they are doing this on October 30, the day before Halloween,” Fischer said in the CNN segment. “And what this program is, it's like poison Halloween candy. Somebody takes a candy bar, injects it with cyanide. The label looks fine, it looks innocuous, it looks fine. It's not until you internalized it that you realize how toxic it is. And we want parents to be aware that any program that comes from the Southern Poverty Law Center is going to be toxic to their student's moral health.”
On his AFA-sponsored radio show, Focal Point, Fischer blasted CNN's actions.

Costello “showed you what the gay gestapo looks like in action,” Fischer told his audience. “Because she cut my water off just as soon as I started to talk about the health risks of homosexual behavior. But Carol Costello, the gay gestapo, the Nazis in the gay gestapo, they do not want to hear the truth about the homosexual behavior because what they're about is promoting this lifestyle – not promoting diversity, but promoting pervert-sity.” (The video is embedded on this page.
