Enough with the Special Rights Bullshit!

Religious freedom is the first right guaranteed to us in the First Amendment. Special rights for homosexuals receive no explicit mention in the Constitution whatsoever. Yet now we must choose between liberty and the homosexual agenda because, it turns out, we can’t have both.

Thus ended the latest ‘opinion’ missive from Mr. Bryan Fischer – one who some routinely address as ‘the village idiot’ – that was spotted last week in the pages of the Idaho Statesman.   Every once in awhile I’d mull it around attempting to find some concise way to address its scatteredness, and still finding it so disjointed it’s rendered illogical and laughable.

In the first sentence Mr. Fischer turns the attention onto Amy Herzfeld directly.   She had previously written a piece submitted to The Idaho Statesman as a representative of one organization making up a coalition of groups encouraging equity in workplace protections by an amending of the Idaho Human Rights Act (IHRA) to include sexual orientation and gender identity.  The tone is such that it feels as those Fischer is attacking Herzfeld – subtle condescension, you might say.

Hostages of Bryan Fischer?

As noted here the other day, Bryan Fischer of the Idaho Values Alliance – no link to be provided – had this monstrosity posted on his website, via 43rd State Blues.  It references a plane crash in Butte, Montana at the edge of a cemetery not quite making it into the airport. There were no survivors.

You by now will have read about the plane crash in Montana which took the lives of 14 people. What you may not have read is that among the victims were members of Bud Feldkamp’s family, including two of his daughters, two sons-in-law, and five grandchildren. Feldkamp, it turns out, is the owner of the nation’s largest privately owned, for-profit abortion chain. His clinics perform more abortions in California even than Planned Parenthood. The plane, in another tragically ironic twist, crashed in a Roman Catholic cemetery which contains a memorial to victims of abortion, the ‘Tomb of the Unborn.’ Pro-lifers had prayed for years in front of his mansion, pleading with him and praying for him to repent and warning him for his children’s sake that, “If you do not hate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you.”

Then Thursday, I believe, Kevin Richert (Idaho Statesman) had written that he was STUNNED at the posting on Mr. Fischer’s site.

Really?

Why?  Continue reading
