Christian Radio Host Wants To Put New Apple CEO In Jail For Being Gay

He didn’t mention Tim Cook by name, but the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer did say that he thinks that homosexuality should be a crime punishable by imprisonment:

Both of the cases that went to the United States Supreme Court that dealt with the issue of whether states should criminalize sodomy, and of course they still ought to be able to do it, every state in the union criminalized sodomy until 1962 and then forty nine states until 1972, then they began to fall like dominoes. But by the time of the founding until the late 20th Century, homosexual activity was a felony offense in the United States of America, there is no reason why it cannot be a criminal offense once again, absolutely none.

For the record, this is the same Bryan Fischer who helped organize Rick Perry’s prayer rally earlier this month.

    “Buggers Behind Bars” – sounds great. But what exact problem would this solve?

    Are you suggesting that there might be a logical disconnect involved in placing homosexuals in a single-sex prison?

    I find the American Family Association refreshingly honest — none of the usual Christian Right song-and-dance about how they really love their opponents or how they just want the best for their families and the country. You just get straight-up hysterical vindictiveness — it’s a real throwback to Falwell. They hate gay folks. They really hate the living hell out of gays, liberals, feminists and whoever the hell else is this week’s threat to the republic.
    I suppose there’s some comfort that Fischer’s plan, like most of the CR’s more masturbatory fantasies, will never ever become law, even if that Elmer Gantry pinhead wins election next year. Among other considerations, I suspect a great many evangelical activists would wind up in jail under such laws…perhaps even Fischer himself.

    @Doug Mataconis:

    That may be, but Tim Cook is a very rich and powerful man. I’m certain he doesn’t have trouble finding dates so the pooling is unnecessary.

    This is really tilting at windmills, there are enough young voters with videos on the internet that would be ample evidence of their guilt if the sodomy laws were reinstated. And who knows how much incriminating evidence is held by call girls that could be used to sway members of Congress or the state legislature.

    Why would we want it to be?
