Bryan Fischer Calls for “Underground Railroad” to Save Children of Same-Sex Families
August 8, 2012 by Maureen McCarty, HRC Associate Director of Digital Media
The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer is spewing more anti-gay rhetoric. This time he took to Twitter to advocate for an Underground Railroad to “deliver innocent children from same-sex households.”
In the tweet, Fischer points to Robert Oscar Lopez’s post blaming his mother and his partner for his social issues as proof to “why we need an Underground Railroad to deliver innocent children from same-sex households.”
LGBT families are not a new phenomenon. There are over 650,000 same-sex couples raising nearly 250,000 childen, according to the 2010 U.S. Census data.
Fischer’s call for kidnapping children from same-sex partners is not only offensive, but a harmful mischaracterization of families that struggle daily to provide loving and safe home environments despite significant legal, financial and dignitary inequality.
