Fischer: 'Duck Dynasty' Controversy Proves 'We Are The Mainstream'

On his radio broadcast yesterday, Bryan Fischer spoke with a caller about the "Duck Dynasty" controversy and declared that the main lesson of the entire thing is that the views put forth by Phil Robertson and, by extension, Fischer and his audience, are widely shared by the vast majority of Americans.

"One of the take-aways of that whole episode," Fischer said, "is that Phil Robertson and the American people like you and me that agree with him, that we are the mainstream. It's the gay activists, it's the gay lobby, they're the ones that are on the fringe ... [The 'Duck Dynasty' cast] represent the values that you and I and the great majority of Americans share":

Fischer: People Who Believe In Evolution Are 'Disqualified From Holding Political Office In The United States Of America'

Bryan Fischer returned to his radio broadcast today where he dedicated his first topic segment to explaining that no person who believes in evolution ought to ever be elected to public office.

"We don't share ancestors with apes and baboons," he proclaimed. "In fact, I would suggest to you that if a politician, if somebody wants to exercise political power and he is an evolutionist, he is disqualified from holding political office in the United States of America."

Fischer went on to clarify that he doesn't think there ought to be a law banning people who believe in evolution from holding office, merely that "that American people shouldn't vote for them because that guy, if he does not believe that we are created beings and that our rights come to us from God, that man cannot be trusted to protect your civil rights":

Fischer: Phil Robertson's Suspension Is 'The Mark Of The Beast'

Just in case the Religious Right's response to the "Duck Dynasty" controversy has not already been ridiculously over-the-top enough, Bryan Fischer decided to officially turn into a total farce by declaring on his radio broadcast today that Robertson's suspension is literally "the Mark of the Beast":

Fischer: 'What We Need Is About A Hundred And Fifty Million Phil Robertsons'

It is no surprise that professional anti-gay bigot Bryan Fischer has come out in support of "Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson, defending the anti-gay comments that got Robertson suspended from the show.

In fact, on his broadcast yesterday, Fischer called upon conservative Christians all over the nation to follow Robertson's example and speak "biblical truth about sexuality and marriage" in "every circumstance, every situation, every conversation."

Saying that the entire controversy is rooted in the "spiritual warfare" that Satan is waging on humanity over the issue of homosexuality, Fischer declared that the only way to fight back is to "continue to speak the truth," which is why everyone ought to emulate Robertson every chance they get.

"What we need is about a hundred and fifty million Phil Robertsons out there," he said:

Fischer: Arrest Of Indian Diplomat Is 'Payback' For Recent Anti-Gay Ruling

On his radio broadcast yesterday, Bryan Fischer discussed the case Indian diplomat who was arrested last week on charges of visa fraud and underpaying her nanny, which Fischer is not buying at all since he knows that this diplomat was really arrested because President Obama is trying to pay India back for the recent Supreme Court ruling outlawing gay sex.

Fischer, a vocal supporter of the Indian law, said the arrest of the diplomat was nothing more than "payback" to the nation of India for the ruling.

"I mean, could you be any more obvious about retaliation or payback," Fischer said, before going on to blast Obama for naming openly gay athletes as part of the official presidential delegation to the Winter Olympics, saying it was an intentional "thumb in the eye" to Russia.

"It's just insulting":

Wildmon: The 'War On Christmas' Has Set America 'On The Road To More Serious Persecution' Of Christians

Robert Jeffress appeared on AFA's "Today's Issues" program yesterday to discuss "why should atheist celebrate Christmas" and the overall "War on Christmas" in general with host Tim Wildmon.

AFA Guest Hopes For Rebellion Against Mentally Ill Liberals

American Family Association head Tim Wildmon and talk show host Lauren Kitchens Steward spoke to Lyle Rossiter yesterday for a fascinating and thought-provoking discussion on why liberals are dumb, although it is not necessarily their fault.

Bryan Fischer Is Just Trying To Save Our Souls

Bryan Fischer continued his reading from the Book of Revelation on his radio program today and when he came to a passage warning that those who "worship the beast" will spend eternity in torment, he took a moment to kindly address us and our readers directly, pleading with us to accept Christ in order to avoid this punishment.

'War On Christmas' Fighter Claims Non-Christians Shouldn't Take Any Days Off Of Work

The American Family Association takes us to the front lines of the supposed "War on Christmas," wonders why non-Christians even take days off of work.

Fischer: 'I Am The Truth Detector'

The Bible says that Satan's only tool is the lie, but fortunately God has put Bryan Fischer on earth to serve as a beacon of truth: "I am the truth detector. I am the truth promoter."

Fischer Hails India Supreme Court Ruling Outlawing Gay Sex: 'This Is Entirely Right And Entirely Appropriate'

Yesterday, the Supreme Court of India reinstated a law dating back to the 1860s which mandates that anyone who "voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal" be punished by up to 10 years in prison.

This decision outlawing consensual homosexual sex was predictably hailed by Bryan Fischer who rejoiced that the ruling demonstrates that making homosexuality illegal "can be done."

"This is entirely right and entirely appropriate," Fischer said of the law. "Same-sex behavior is unnatural, it is against the order of nature: you just look at the plumbing and you can tell that, what body parts are designed for what use and you can see right away that this is contrary to nature."

"So that shows," he continued, speaking of the court ruling,"ladies and gentlemen that it can be done. It shows that this cultural trend that we're dealing with can be reversed, because for four years it was open season for homosexuals in India and now that drift away from cultural norms and moral norms, that's been reversed in the country of India ... Good law in India upheld by the Supreme Court":

Fischer: 'Our Constitution Protects The Free Exercise Of The Christian Religion'

On his radio broadcast yesterday, Bryan Fischer spent two segments laying out his argument that, when the founders of this nation used the word "religion," what they really meant was "Christianity." As such, authorities in Oklahoma have every right to reject an effort by Satanists to erect a monument outside the Oklahoma Capitol building.

Right Wing Leftovers - 12/10/13

  • The AFA's Tim Wildmon takes issue with people, especially Christians, who dismiss the annual so-called "War on Christmas."
  • On a related note, if you ever hear of anything coming from Urban Family Communications, know that it is an arm of the American Family Associate set up to spread its message to the black community.
  • The Herman Cain comic book is an actual thing.
  • Peter LaBarbera is not happy with Gov. Scott Walker's support for ENDA, saying that "if Christians are already being persecuted under state and local gay rights laws, why would you support a federal gay rights law which is only going to give the homosexual lawyers more power to oppress people of faith?"
  • Finally, Salem Communications actually spent real money to buy Twitchy, the single dumbest website in existence.

Fischer: Colorado Bakery Owners Have Become Victims Of 'The Secular Inquisition'

Last week, a Colorado judge ruled that the owners of a bakery who were refusing to serve gay customers must do so or face fines. The owner is vowing to resist the ruling and Bryan Fischer voiced his support on his radio broadcast today, saying that the baker has become a victim of  "The Secular Inquisition."

"Our secular theocrats have found this man guilty of heresy," Fischer said, "guilty of idolatry, guilty of blasphemy because he will not agree to the dogma of the secular theocrats. He is a heretic and he must be punished just like the Spanish Inquisition did for those that went astray from the dogma of the church in their day."

Fischer: Pot Should Be Illegal Because Its Use Violates Biblical Teaching

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer spent the better part of one segment railing against the dangers of marijuana and saying that it should never be legalized because it's use violates the teachings of the Bible.

Citing Paul's admonition in Ephesians 5:18 that believers should "not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit," Fisher said marijuana should be illegal because people "are not to be under control of anything except for the Holy Spirit."

This would, of course, also apply to alcohol, which Fischer presumably thinks ought to be illegal as well ... as should hypnosis, apparently, which Fischer also warned against.

"I'm primarily opposed to marijuana use," Fischer said, "just for the same reason I'm opposed to drunkenness, same reason I'm opposed to cocaine use and heroin use: it's turning control of your humanity over to something other than God."

Rios: Mandela Was A Criminal & 'Criminals Are Placed In Solitary Confinement'

On Friday, American Family Association radio host Sandy Rios lashed out at Nelson Mandela, who was imprisoned for 27 years, and said that he deserved to be in jail because he was a violent criminal:

Nelson Mandela was placed in prison because of the violence that he did in the country of South Africa. Now you can argue, I guess, you can say it was worth it because we overthrew apartheid, I don’t know, is that really the way a victory should be won? Is this really a righteous cause? Is he really a saint for doing this? They talk about him being in solitary confinement, well, criminals are placed in solitary confinement, if you murder other people you lose your rights.

Rios later wondered if race relations in South Africa have improved since the end of the apartheid system.

“I don’t think the picture of South Africa as it stands now is what the narrative is, certainly to be a white person in South Africa is not a very fun thing right now,” Rios said. “I think that they have now obtained suppressing the white population with the black population holding the superior vantage point.”

Sandy Rios On The War On Christmas: 'This Is Exactly What Hitler Did In Nazi Germany'

American Family Association head Tim Wildmon joined AFA radio host Sandy Rios today to discuss a USA Today article about how “Not all Christians believe there is a ‘War on Christmas.’” Wildmon spent most of the interview complaining that any Christian would dare criticize the AFA, which is a leading voice in movement to expose the “War on Christmas.” He told Rios that he resented Christian leaders who mock the idea of the War on Christmas or note that the AFA’s campaign actually emphasizes the material aspect of the holiday by focusing on how many stores tell customers “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays.”

Wildmon accused one pastor, who told USA Today that Christians needed to come to grips with the religious diversity in the US, of wanting Christians to partake in “a dangerous retreat into isolating ourselves from the larger culture.”

“This is exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany,” Rios said. She went on to compare the supposed War on Christmas to religious oppression in the Soviet Union and North Korea.

“I don’t think this pastor understands and I don’t think people understand what is going on in the world,” she said. “They don’t have a large enough world. Their world is too small and so they don’t understand the dangers.”

Fischer: Obama Should Be Impeached ... Just For Educational Purposes

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer agreed with a caller who demanded that Republicans in the House of Representatives "take a stand" and impeach President Obama even if he won't be convicted and removed by the Senate.

Fischer readily agreed, saying that even though there is no chance that Obama would actually be removed from office, House Republicans ought to go ahead and impeach him any way ... for educational purposes.

"There could be a powerful educational benefit from the House filing articles of impeachment," Fischer said, because "it would give the House the opportunity to make their case why this man needs to be removed from office ... And so they're be tremendous educational value in that; it may not go anywhere in the Senate ... but it may be time to recognize there's an educational benefit here":

Fischer: Obamacare Is A 'Disaster Of Historic Proportions' Representing The 'Death Throes Of Socialism'

We already know that Bryan Fischer has a pretty active political imagination, dreaming up scenarios in which Democrats might decide to impeach President Obama in order to win re-election in 2014.

On his program yesterday, Fischer returned to fantasy land in order to declare Obamacare is such a monumental disaster that, a hundred years from now, people will study this time in American history as the moment when socialism finally died.

"Obamacare is catastrophic, it is cataclysmic," Fischer said. "I've said this before, I'll say it again: it is not fixable, this thing is an utter, absolute, complete disaster of historic proportions. Ladies and gentlemen, you are living through American history. I want you to understand the significance of this. You are a living witness of American history. You are living through something that people will be writing about a hundred years from now and that is the time period in American history when socialism exploded, when it imploded, when it became evident to every thinking American that socialism does not work, it cannot work, it is impossible to work, nobody can make it work. We are witnessing the death throes of socialism and you are witnessing that":

We hope this is true, primarily because we are just getting tired of hearing the Right reflexively declare that everything they don't like is "socialism."

Of course, Fischer does not have a very good track record of making predictions, so we won't hold our breath.

Fischer: Muslim Prayer Rooms On Christian Campuses Are 'Idolatrous Temples'

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer discussed a report that a few Christian colleges in the United States had built Muslim prayer rooms on campus.  Fischer was, of course, predictably disturbed by the fact that these colleges were willingly building "idolatrous temples" through which people could worship "a counterfeit god."

"These are basically idolatrous temples," Fischer said. "You set up a prayer room for Muslims, they are praying to a counterfeit god, they are praying to a false god. It's no different in the days of Judah and Israel when they set up temples to Baal and altars to Baal, it is exactly the same thing and we know exactly what God thought about all that":
