Just hours before a federal judge in Oklahoma ruled that the Sooner State's constitutional marriage discrimination amendment violated the ultimate law of the land -- the United States Constitution -- hate group spokesman Bryan Fischer decried such judges as "tyrannical" and claimed that public support for marriage equality was "irrelevant."

Fischer made the remarks in an interview with progressive talk-show host David Pakman on the eponymously-named, nationally-syndicated David Pakman Show. Why doesn't the fact that a clear and growing majority of Americans think Fischer's rabidly anti-LGBT views belong on the dustbin of history matter to him, you ask? Because Jesus, of course.

Later when Pakman (who, full disclosure, is a friend) pointed out that Christianity, like hundreds of other religions throughout history, is almost certain to have an expiration date, Fischer pushed back. "It will be here, it will be vibrant, it will be in existence until the end of time," he said.

Other highlights of Pakman's interview include Fischer calling abortion a "Holocaust," claiming that Millennials will become conservative as soon as they have teenage daughters of their own, and saying that the watchdog website Right Wing Watch is stalking him.
