Trib: Idaho Is Responsible For Fischer

Bryan Fischer is the not the only hate monger out there. But Fischer got where he is because the state of Idaho extended him its imprimatur. When are the Idaho leaders responsible for giving Fischer his stepping stone as one of the state's official clergymen a decade ago going to withdraw their implicit endorsement? Since leaving Idaho in 2009, Fischer has been working as "director of issue analysis" for the Tupelo, Miss.-based American Family Association. Last year, the Southern Poverty Law Center labeled the AFA a hate group for its "use of known falsehoods" to vilify gays and lesbians. This month, it released a white paper documenting Fischer's broadcasting and blogging activities/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Do you agree with Marty Trillhaase that Idaho launched Fischer into national prominence?
