Bryan Fischer, one of the nation’s leading homophobes and transphobes, sees good coming out of the COVID-19 crisis in that children will not go to public schools where they are indoctrinated in “sexual deviancy.”
“Closing public schools will protect vulnerable young children from force-fed indoctrination into the absurd and anti-science environmental agenda,” Fischer wrote in a column published Wednesday on the American Family Association’s website. “It will protect them from being brainwashed into normalizing sexual deviancy, gender confusion, and Drag Queen story hours. By forcing parents to home school their children at this time, big government nannies may discover that all they did was to give parents a chance to try home education and discover they liked it more than they thought.”
Fischer, who has often associated LGBTQ people with Nazis and said they are trying to oppress Christians, also said that forcing families to be home together will expand the role of fathers and offer “more time for parents to instruct their children in the teaching and admonition of the Lord.” He contended that the shutting down of most activities in many major cities is unnecessary, but “coronavirus might create a fantastic, once-in-a-generation opportunity to reverse some anti-family trends and move back toward the America we used to be.”
Good as You blogger Jeremy Hooper published a response on GLAAD’s website. “Leave it to the American Family Association and its spokespeople to latch onto a worldwide crisis and use it to continue their anti-LGBTQ crusade,” he wrote.
“While millions of us around the world are in restless worry about this hurting world and how we can fix it, this man who professes to be a ‘family values’ voice of a ‘pro-family’ organization is seriously citing the saving of children ‘from being brainwashed into normalizing sexual deviancy’ as a goal,” Hooper continued.
“How heartless can you be to look at this, one of the most impactful blows to working families to stem from coronavirus, and tell these families that their burden and lost educational opportunities for their children is actually a blessing?” he added. “A blessing, as Bryan tells it, because these schools were always too darn queer for proper educatin’ in the first place.”
“While you all spend this time of crisis misplacing your ‘values’ and pushing your un-American obsessions that seek to harm families, the rest of us will work to save the world from normalizing deviant values like yours,” he concluded.
