On his radio show yesterday, American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer claimed that gay men and lesbians have no right to engage in sexual activities because God, the laws of nature and the U.S. Constitution do not allow it (video below).

According to RightWingWatch.org, Fischer insisted that "there is no constitutional right to engage in sodomy," but did not mention that the U.S Supreme Court struck down sodomy laws in its 'Lawrence v. Texas' ruling in 2003.

The Supreme Court ruled that making it a crime for people of the same sex to engage in sexual activity violated the Due Process Clause of the U.S. Constitution.

"It was a felony offense in virtually every state in America for the first 200 years of our existence," Fischer stated. "There is no constitutional right to engage in the kind of sexual practices that homosexuals engage in. They do not have a right to do that, they don't have a moral right to do it, they don't have an ethical right to do it, they don't have a right to do it according to the laws of nature. And most importantly, they do not have right to do it according to the laws of God."

"Do not let anybody tell you that a law can give somebody a right. A law cannot do that. Rights can only come from God. That's the only place that a right can come from... No law can give you a right to do something that's immoral. You can get permission to do something that's immoral, but there is no right to engage in immoral behavior."

going crazy 

This 'foundation' would love for his way of thinking to fall in line with every one.  If it is illegal again then those gay people will be committing a crime and off to prison they go.  Simple minded.

Rights only coming from God.................that thought pattern scares me.  More so that people believe every one should believe this.

First of all he needs to check his facts as it was not that way the first 200 years of our existence.

Secondly he sounds a bit on the fanatic side that perhaps has some closeted issues.

For over 200 years, it was legally allowable for a man to rape his wife. Should we go back to that thinking as well?

We wouldn't want to give the man any ideas. There are many women on CM who don't think a man can rape his wife. It's disgusting.

Quoting jllcali:

For over 200 years, it was legally allowable for a man to rape his wife. Should we go back to that thinking as well?
