TOO MUCH HATE: American Family Association Rewrites Bryan Fischer

Right Wing Watch notes today that for the third time in recent weeks, the American Family Association has rewritten the hate speech of their spokesbigot, Bryan Fischer.

Here's what Fischer originally said:
Allowing Muslims to immigrate into the United States, a Christian nation by origin, history and tradition, without insisting that they drop their allegiance to Allah, Muhammad, the Qur’an, and sharia law, is to commit cultural suicide. We believe in freedom of religion for Muslims like we do for everybody else. But if they insist on clinging to their religion, they will need to exercise their freedom of religion in a Muslim country which shares their values: death for those who leave Islam, the beating of wives by their husbands, and the labeling of Jews as apes and pigs.
And here's what his column now says:
Does this mean that folks need to convert before they immigrate? No, but at a minimum, it would mean making sure that immigrants to the United States affirm and believe in the superiority of the Judeo-Christian system of values and truth claims over alternative value systems such as sharia law. Immigration is a privilege, not a right, and our policy should be to admit to our shores only those with a commitment to a full assimilation to American culture, adopting our values, our heroes, and our history.
In recent weeks the AFA also rewrote Fischer's column about black people "rutting like rabbits" and they completely scrubbed his article claiming that Native Americans had no right to own land because they haven't fully embraced Christianity.
