bryan_fischer.jpgBryan Fischer of the American Family Association, an SPLC-certified anti-gay hate group, is very, very angry about Sweet Cakes by Melissa, the bigoted Oregon bakery whose customers left in droves and forced the store out of business after the owners refused to serve a lesbian couple.

On the Tuesday installment of his Focal Point radio show, Fischer characterized the incident as an example of alleged anti-Christian persecution in America. He parroted the owners' claim that equality supporters used "mafia-style tactics," then went a step further, equating those who don't think anti-LGBT business owners should get a special right to discriminate with Islamic terrorists:

"This is happening everywhere... That bakery couple in Oregon that had their bakery completely shut down by a homosexual mob, a homosexual mafia; they cried 'Homo akbar!' and assaulted -- I mean they stormed metaphorically, stormed the bakery and got it completely shut down."

According to Fischer, the blame goes all the way up to President Obama himself, who is (of course) leading an "ethnic cleansing" of Christians from the military.

Watch, after the jump.
