Fischer joined the American Family Association in 2009
Bryan Fischer is the former Director of Issues Analysis for the American Family Association (AFA)
He stated that the First Amendment to the United States Constitution protects only the religious practice of Christianity,
Fischer has described Muslims as "Parasites Who Must Convert or Die,"
Fisher has suggested Jews and Muslims are not included in religious freedom protections in the US, saying: “I have contended for years that the First Amendment, as given by the Founders, provides religious liberty protections for Christianity only.” He later wrote: “We are a Christian nation and not a Jewish or Muslim one.
In November 2010, the SPLC changed their listing of the AFA from a group that used hate speech to the more serious one of being designated a hate group.
During the 2012 presidential primaries, Republican Party candidates Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty were guests on Fischer's show. Romney was not invited.
On January 28, 2015, Tim Wildmon, President of the American Family Association demoted Fischer from being a spokesperson. Fisher went on to state that he will still be hosting the AFA's American Family Talk radio.
