I fear I might eat whatever that guy is eating and the nasty stuff inside it might eat my brains to.

Correct me if I"m wrong, but no one is making eating the burgers mandatory right?

He can go choke on bigot chicken instead, you know from Chick A Fil, or whatever KFC's evil twin is called.

These people are so insecure in their heterosexuality, that they think a burger will make them gay?

He obviously thinks about putting it in his mouth a lot.

Oh that was bad. He deserved it. ^_-.

Yeah, I know this. It doesn't seem to have registered with him Iowa has had gay marriage for awhile.

Oh NO, not the rainbow wrapper!!!!

I would like it noted for the record, that the rainbow is actually in Christianity considered to be God's promise (possibly apology) for Noah's flood.

So he has a problem with rainbows and is a Christian, eh? Perhaps he doesn't even know his own religion. Sad, if you are going to be a religious zealot, at least read the fine print.

Give a man, a right wing bigot to be precise, a radio program and he has to fill the time. So he says whatever comes into his tiny little mind - and that isn't much, understandably - and then he's got to make a feature out of it, right?
So what does he come up with: if you get a burger wrapped in a rainbow coloured wrapper - and that is ALL there is to it - you immediately start to think about two guys having sex. Somehow I get the idea that this statement says more about Fisher and his 'Christian' cronies than about the burger. Pathetic, perverted, little man.

I think the whole concept of wrapping a burger in a rainbow wrapper with the phrase, “We are all the same inside” a brilliant idea.

What's interesting is the big copy of the original Declaration of Independence he uses as background.
Where does it say anything about "America's Official Religion" being Christianity, there???

There is NO opposition to Gays, that is NOT Religious. NONE.
NO Secular, NO Science-based, Reason-based opposition. NONE.
[And of course, not ALL Religions oppose Gays either.]
Statements like this, are having the very BENEFICIAL effect, of ALIENATING Gays, their Family members, Friends, and Allies, and almost Everybody, from all the BIGOTED Religions.
In a confrontation between Gays and Right-wing Religions, RELIGION IS CLEARLY LOSING. This guy is backed by Money interests, is the only reason he's on the air - but he's DESPERATE, just like all like him are!
A reason they're LOSING, and LOSING BIG, is, that they SO LAY THEMSELVES OPEN TO RIDICULE, by their ABSURDITY.
Religion can survive lots of things, but IT CAN'T SURVIVE BEING LAUGHED AT on this massive a scale...

“I cried in there,” one woman said in the video. “A burger has never made me cry before.”

Fischer scoffed at the tearful reaction....
===============
Awwwwwwww, kindof silly Video, but kindof nice, too. Has an "amateur" quality, makes it Sincere.
Little kid says, firmly, "I think it means we all have the same RIGHTS".
Watch the silly Video, it IS strangely moving.....
==============
All of this makes being Gay appear universally acceptable, NORMATIVE, which it IS.
That's what this Bigoted Jerk is objecting to, really. That being Gay, and accepting Gays, is NORMAL.

So he's supposedly a Christian? How did he miss Matthew 15:17-19, or was it over his head? Let me try to put it into simple modern English for him: "Hey, dummy, it's not what goes INTO your mouth that defiles you, it's what comes OUT. THAT's where we get all the fornication and adultery, as well as murder, theft, lying, and of course gay-bashing."

They are worried about a burger? That should be the biggest problem the world has. If the world really was flat I would say lets just push these fools off. rob ably some of them still believe it is flat. I wouldn't eat it because it is meat but if I was a meat eaterI would run out there and get one (well, if I was a meat eater who ate junk food. They need to get over themselves.

Who is he calling a 'fruit'? Think he has included himself in there ... lol. This attitude is so archaic it's scary. It's hard to believe that people like this exist and actually have influence.

If eating meat makes you spout the same nonsense as this bigot, I'm glad I've been vegetarian all my adult life! Just kidding, meat eaters ;-)

Who is this idiot? What's wrong with him? He's a very dangerous bigoted fool, is what I have deduced! What is wrong with rainbow paper, I'm sure lots of reasonable human beings wouldn't be in the least bit perturbed and would enjoy their burger and have no ill will or unsavoury thoughts on their minds, like the bigoted fool stirring up all this mishmash against rainbow paper because his mind can't get out of the gutter. So I say pull your head out of your groin and grow up Mr. Fisher and do not represent yourself as a Christian because you don't know what that means because you are disparaging and cruel and have little to do but act like the bigot you are.
