My original song “Jesus loves me this I know, ’cause Rick Perry tells me so” explores the cozy relationship between the Republican Party and radical right wing group the American Family Association (AFA). I will playing the role of Evangelical Radio Host Bryan Fischer, who was fired on Wednesday as spokesperson for the AFA. Bryan Fischer blames the Holocaust on gay people and states that constitutional guarantees of freedom of religion only apply to Christians. He also said women, not men, were designed by God to be secretaries.

Jesus loves me – this I know
’cause Rick Perry tells me so
If I sin I’ll go to hell says
Governor Bobby Jindal
Glory Glory Hallelujah
Homosexual Storm Troopers
Hitler wrote “Mein Kampf,” he was just a little camp
And he hung out at the “Bratwurstglockl” Bar
There’s no such thing as discrimination
In our dominionism nation
Women were designed to be their man’s secretary
If you don’t like what I say you can sue me
The social conservative group American Family Association is sponsoring a trip to Israel beginning Saturday for Republican National Committee (RNC) members, reportedly including RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. On Wednesday night, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow reported that the American Family Association fired Bryan Fischer as spokesman and director of issue analysis because of the following comments he made on the Focal Point Radio Show:
“We know that the Nazi party started in a gay bar in Munich….Adolf Hitler couldn’t get straights to be vicious enough in being his enforcers….When gay activitists gain the upper hand, they are thuggish, totalitarian, and repressive. Just as the homosexual stormtroopers for Hitler were to exterminate and eliminate the opposition and beat them into silence that’s what homosexual activists want to do today.”
It should be noted that Bryan Fischer will continue to host the Focal Point radio program and continue blogging, in following the American Family Association’s policy of allowing “unity and diversity.”
Former Texas Governor Rick Perry, in partnership with the AFA, held a day of prayer and fasting at Houston’s Reliant Stadium in 2011. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal served as keynote speaker this past Saturday at a prayer rally sponsored by the AFA.
I’ll have to add this to my collection…alongside “Drop kick me Jesus” and “”Plastic Jesus”
