One of the most amusing things for me over the last few months as the anti-gay bigots have begun to recognize that they’re likely to lose the marriage battle has been watching their hilarious William Wallace impersonations as they declare, ever more loudly, that they will never surrender or capitulate. Bryan Fischer, that’s your cue:
“This has got to be a non-negotiable red line for us,” Fischer said. “It is absolutely imperative that that we categorically, unambiguously, and publicly declare that we will NEVER … accept the normalization of homosexual marriage, and will NEVER capitulate to any Nazi-esque order from any government at any level to violate either conscience or biblical principle on this matter.”
“They can’t arrest us all, they can’t prosecute us all, they can’t lock us all up, they can’t shut down every Christian-run business, they can’t shut down every Christian school, they can’t shut down every Bible-believing church, they can’t shut down every Christian ministry,” he concluded. “They can’t lock us all up, but our determination to resist moral tyranny must be resolute enough to prompt them to try.”
Come on Bryan, you’re just not trying hard enough. You should actually paint your face blue and scream that at the top of your lungs atop your trusty steed (named Freedom, of course). Of course, no one is going to be locked up or rounded up into FEMA reeducation camps or any such nonsense. It’s so much easier to declare one’s own bravery in the face of an entirely mythical oppression.
