Fischer,a well-known radio show host, blames Nazism and the Holocaust on homosexuality, saying that “Nazi Germany became the horror that it was because it rejected both Christianity and its clear teaching about human sexuality.” According to this theory, the Nazis started out in a gay bar in Munich, Hitler liked men, and the Holocaust was a result of homosexuals in the German military.
Fischer apparently got these ideas from The Pink Swastika, a book co-authored by attorney, anti-gay activist, and former candidate for Governor of Massachusetts Scott Lively.
And just last week, Lively was a guest on Fischer's program to discuss other important matters in the war on sodomy. Among the claims he made are that homosexuality is “worse than murder, worse than genocide,” and that if the Supreme Court rules against gay marriage bans, we will cross a line against God that hasn't been crossed since before Noah's Flood. Lively also believes that such an action could result in the arrival of the Antichrist by year's end.
There is of course no point in arguing against these views: after all, what could be said that is worse than the statements themselves? But what Fischer and Lively don't seem to realize is that by making such claims, they can potentially do a lot more to promote atheism than Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris combined. We should all commend them for their great work.
