Religious Right Group: ‘Fundamentalist Muslims And Homosexual Activists’ Are Running The Military

Views

The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer hasn’t been shy about bashing Muslims in the military. So maybe it’s no surprise that he has something to say about Rev. Franklin Graham being uninvited to the National Day of Prayer at the Pentagon after concerns were raised about Graham’s earlier comments that Islam is an “evil” religion.

But Fischer really lost it this time.In a blog post on the AFA’s website, Fischer, who is the group’s Director of Issue Analysis for Government and Public Policy, listed the reasons he agreed with Graham’s statement about Islam, saying the military had been ‘bullied,’ and calling its leaders ‘spineless,’ before concluding:

Bottom line: you want to know who’s now running the U.S. Army, the U.S. Navy and the Marines and calling the shots where it counts? Fundamentalist Muslims and homosexual activists.
