The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer wasted no time when it came to chiming in on George Zimmerman's acquittal over the weekend, drawing an unlikely link between the case and the U.S. Supreme Court's rulings on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and Prop 8 last month.
Fischer, whose anti-gay declarations have become a near-weekly staple of his radio show, tweeted:
For example of injustice, don't look at Zimmerman. Look at what Supreme Court did on DOMA, Prop 8. There's your travesty.
Fischer's support of Zimmerman has been apparent on Twitter for some time. Earlier in the weekend, he noted:
Watching the prosecutor: has a smile on her face. Looks like SHE knows justice has been done.
He also added:
Defense attorney is absolutely right: this was not a civil rights case, it was a self-defense case.
