Is Bryan Fischer obsessed with homosexuals?Jul 18th, 2008 | By Jody May-Chang | Category: News
Look at what Idaho media has not been reporting . . .
Bryan Fischer, Executive Director of himself and his mailing list, issues â€œDaily Updatesâ€ on his website and emailâ€™s them to his minions every day or every other day.
In those updates, Fischer will have some kind of headline followed by a single story or stories. Stories are typically following by â€œBonus Bytes,â€ a large paragraph on issues or people he follows for that day. Links can be found to other stories that support his fringe ideological views, including links to gay websites.
Some of Bryan Fischer’s more outrageous quotes from his political non-profit website that Idaho
media seems to ignore. Instead media legitimize Fischer by jumping to cover and quote him
without asking hard questions about his comments or his political agenda.
To put the following graph in context, PrideDEPOT.com closely examined these updates for a period of one full year from June 1, 2007, through June 30, 2008. The numbers in this graph below reflect all found references to homosexuals, homosexuality, gays and lesbians, etc. during that period.
Although some of the references are just minor passing comments, many of them range from brief sentences to outright diatribes on the evils of homosexuals.
For someone who brands themselves as a â€œFamily Valuesâ€ advocate and â€œWorking to make Idaho the friendliest place to raise a familyâ€ as it says on his website, one might expect to see information and discussion about issues that deeply effect the families. Right?
On deeper examination there is little to nothing on real family issues as solving the issues of poverty, improving education, providing quality health and child care in Idaho.
Instead what you see is unsubstantiated â€œfactsâ€ that most often turn out to be either, misinformation or disinformation, diatribes about homosexuals, the 10 Commandments, making no fault divorce illegal and prideful self promotion.
I think it is safe to say that Bryan Fischer is not really concerned with helping families at all but instead spends the majority of his time thinking about and writing about queers, seeking media attention and asking for money from followers.
It would be interesting for any psychologists out there who would like to weigh in on this. My guess, Thou Doest Protest Too Much!
