WATCH: Bryan Fischer Says Homophobes Are 'Born That Way'

There's an instinctive revulsion to 'the act of homosexuality,' the antigay activist claims.

Radio host and blogger Bryan Fischer has a new explanation for why he's a homophobic bigot -- baby, he was born this way.

This week on his American Family Radio show, Fischer took a call from a man named Terry who said he was born a Christian because he was made in God's image and wondered why he had "fewer rights" than LGBT people, if sexuality is also an inborn trait.

"That's a good argument," Fischer replied. "The way I am, I was born this way." He then asked, "Who would choose, at this time in our nation's history, to be a Christian?" Christians, he said, "are the unending subject of ridicule, mockery, and contempt by liberals in society, by elites, by professors, on the media, by politicians," and are losing their jobs. "Who's going to choose that? So our defense is, hey, I was born that way."

"After admitting that this was really nothing more than a facetious argument because 'we know that our faith is a matter of choice,' Fischer went on to assert that being repulsed by homosexuality was actually something most people were born with," Right Wing Watch notes.

"I think that most of us have an instinctive, I think revulsion is not too strong of a word, to the act of homosexuality, what actually happens when homosexuals come together and engage in sexual congress," he said. "We look at that and there is just an inner revulsion to that. ... I was born that way. There's not a thing I can do about that."
