Bryan Fischer, the "Director of Issues Analysis" for the conservative Christian group the American Family Association, was unhappy yesterday that President Obama awarded the Medal of Honor to a soldier for saving lives. This, Fischer wrote on his blog, shows that the Medal of Honor has been "feminized" because "we now award it only for preventing casualties, not for inflicting them."
Fischer's take? "So the question is this: when are we going to start awarding the Medal of Honor once again for soldiers who kill people and break things so our families can sleep safely at night?"
Army Sgt. Salvatore Giunta risked his life to pull wounded soldiers to cover and then rescued another comrade who was being carried away by the enemy. Why does Bryan Fischer think this "feminizes" the Medal of Honor? My money is on "because Obama awarded it."
