Notorious homophobe and director of issues analysis at the antigay American Family Association Bryan Fischer turned up the persecution rhetoric to 11 when he touched on the Colorado bakery story. By finding Phillips guilty of discrimination, Fischer claims that Colorado might as well be Communist Cuba or Soviet-era Russia.

"Our secular theocrats have found this man guilty of heresy," Fischer cried. "Guilty of idolatry, guilty of blasphemy because he will not agree to the dogma of the secular theocrats. He is a heretic and he must be punished just like the Spanish Inquisition did for those that went astray from the dogma of the church in their day. … This is something that happens in Cuba. This is something that happens in the Soviet Union."
