Here’s the actual Biblical passage, giving us a very clear picture of what Fischer wants for us:
So Moses said to Israel’s judges, “Each of you must put to death those of your men who have joined in worshiping the Baal of Peor.”
Then an Israelite man brought to his family a Midianite woman right before the eyes of Moses and the whole assembly of Israel while they were weeping at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. When Phinehas son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, the priest, saw this, he left the assembly, took a spear in his hand and followed the Israelite into the tent. He drove the spear through both of them—through the Israelite and into the woman’s body. Then the plague against the Israelites was stopped; but those who died in the plague numbered 24,000.
The LORD said to Moses, “Phinehas son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, the priest, has turned my anger away from the Israelites; for he was as zealous as I am for my honor among them, so that in my zeal I did not put an end to them. Therefore tell him I am making my covenant of peace with him. He and his descendants will have a covenant of a lasting priesthood, because he was zealous for the honor of his God and made atonement for the Israelites.”
The name of the Israelite who was killed with the Midianite woman was Zimri son of Salu, the leader of a Simeonite family. And the name of the Midianite woman who was put to death was Cozbi daughter of Zur, a tribal chief of a Midianite family.
Come out. Be out. Live out. Advertise your sexual orientation. Let everyone know the gender of your beloved. Or your ex. Or your date for Saturday night. Wear an I’m gay button to the grocery store. Get a heart-shaped frame from Target, put in your partner’s picture, and stick it on your desk at work. When your office celebrates a birthday, yell out, “MY BOYFRIEND (GIRLFRIEND) WOULD LOVE THIS ICE CREAM CAKE!”
Be. The fuck. Out.
