UPDATE: SPLC Unveils Report by Idaho Journalists on Fischer, AFA


UPDATE: Tuesday, Oct. 11
The Southern Poverty Law Center previewed "The Propogandists" Monday, which will be published in the November issue of the SPLC's Intelligence Report.

The report, authored by Idaho journalists Jody May-Chang and Jill Kuraitis, profiles The American Family Association, a powerful religious-right group with 200 radio stations, and its ties to Bryan Fischer, former executive director of the Idaho Values Alliance and current radio host for AFA.

Here's a sample:

"Since moving to Mississippi to join the group, Fischer has declared that 'homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, the Nazi war machine and 6 million dead Jews,' a complete falsehood, as any historian knows. He has suggested that gay sex be recriminalized. He has routinely claimed that gay men molest children at rates far higher than those of heterosexual men - another falsehood, as all the relevant professional scientific associations have long agreed. Fischer has said that President [Barrack] Obama 'nurtures a hatred for the white man' and suggested that welfare incentivizes black people who 'rut like rabbits.' He has said that non-Christian religions 'have no First Amendment rights to the free exercise of religion,' claimed that the 'sexual immorality of Native Americans' was part of what made them 'morally disqualified from sovereign control of American soil,' and suggested that the best way to deal with promiscuity would be to kill the promiscuous."

ORIGINAL POST: Sunday, Oct. 9
Monday morning, the Southern Poverty Law Center's Intelligence Project is scheduled to unveil a report zeroing in on Bryan Fischer, former executive director of the Idaho Values Alliance and the American Family Association, which promotes what it calls "conservative Christian values, such as opposition to same-sex marriage." The report, authored by two Idaho journalists, BW contributor Jody May-Chang and freelancer Jill Kuraitis, is entitled "The Propagandists: Bryan Fischer, the American Family Association and the Demonization of LGBT People."

The report will be unveiled in Tupelo, Miss., headquarters for the American Family Association and home to Fischer, where he spends his time in front of a microphone for a neo-conservative Christian broadcaster, airing daily across the country on 145 AFA-owned radio stations.

The report's unveiling will kick off a Give Hate a Holiday demonstration and march in Tupelo.
