It's been an incredible week for marriage equality in the U.S. (albeit not without a few setbacks), but one ultra-conservative pundit isn't having any of it.
The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer called the U.S. Supreme Court's Oct. 6 decision to turn away same-sex marriage appeals from Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin, Right Wing Watch first reported.
Fischer, whose opposition to same-sex marriage and other lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights is well-established, deemed the Supreme Court's decision "the de facto Roe vs. Wade of sodomy-based marriage" on his "Focal Point" radio show this week.
"It's going to be virtually impossible to stop this press and this push toward nationalizing, imposing on every state in the union, marriage that is based on the infamous crime against nature," he continued, before adding, "It's unconscionable, unconstitutional and completely, absolutely un-American."
In recent months, Fischer has slammed LGBT rights advocates as "belligerent" and "intolerant bullies" who represented a "tiny little minority" of the U.S. population.
He also denounced Burger King's "Proud Whopper" campaign, arguing that the fast food franchise's LGBT-friendly effort as a "bonehead move from a marketing standpoint."
"When people sit down to eat a hamburger, the last thing they want to be thinking about is two guys having sex," Fischer noted at the time.
