Bryan Fischer, one of the most anti-gay voices in the US, is fired

Bryan Fischer is practically a real-life caricature of a right-wing, religious radical spouting homophobia at every chance he gets.

But now, he is no longer serving as the spokesman for the American Family Association.

Rachel Maddow, speaking on her show, said: ‘Fischer has been their director of issue analysis, the director of issue analysis for the American Family Association forever. He’s basically quoted everywhere for years now as the organization’s spokesman…

‘The president of the American Family Association telling us tonight, that as of today, Bryan Fischer should no longer be described as the director of issue analysis for that group, he should not be quoted as a spokesman for the group.

‘As of today, the American Family Association tells us that Bryan Fischer is, and I quote, "just a talk show host".’

It appears that what prompted Fischer’s firing was when he specifically connected Nazis and homosexuality.

AFA President Don Wildmon says: ‘We reject that.’

It appears he will keep his right-wing radio show, which is backed by the AFA, but that will be it. It remains airing in its usual timeslot and on the same station.
