Who said THAT???! – Religious bigotry edition


Here’s a good one. Who said this?

“The purpose of the First Amendment is to protect the free exercise of the Christian religion.”

Answer after the jump.

The answer is Bryan Fischer, an official at the American Family Association (AFA), a virulently anti-gay and anti-Mormon organization.

We have the “pleasure” of having and AFA moron running for Senate in Michigan against Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow. Gary Glenn is so odious that even Republicans don’t want him in the primary. From the Michigan Log Cabin Republicans’ press release.

The Michigan Log Cabin Republicans are calling on Gary Glenn, a Republican candidate for the United States Senate to get out of the race as he continues his gay-baiting. Glenn made the news again this evening with a story in The Grand Rapids Press where his organization, The American Family Association of MI ran an ad against Holland City Council Members using the word “homosexual” and “cross dressing” six different times similar to one he ran two years ago in which homosexual was mentioned ten times.

“We need a serious candidate to defeat Debbie Stabenow next year and a gay-obsessed crackerjack like Gary Glenn is not the answer”. “Furthermore I don’t think amongst the grassroots that a career politician, a lobbyist and a political agitator qualifies someone for the United States Senate”, said Joe Sylvester, Chairman of the Michigan Log Cabin Republicans.

He is, of course, the tea party favorite and recently won the straw poll at a tea party candidate forum in Dewitt. Go figure.
