Fischer: 'It Is Your Patriotic Duty To Worship God'

Bryan Fischer began yesterday's radio program, as he customarily does, with a reading from the Bible and a discussion about what it means for today.  In yesterday's reading, Fischer was working from the Book of Haggai as he explained that our economy is suffering because the nation has turned away from God, just as happened to ancient Israel.

And if we want the economy to turn around, it requires the leaders of this nation to call us to focus our attention back on God because" if you want a prosperous economy, you've got to have a vibrant spirituality."

"When you worship God," Fischer explained, "you are not just doing the right thing in terms of your relationship with God, you are doing your patriotic duty. It is your patriotic duty to worship God in order that we may have a prosperous and flourishing economy":

Fischer Declares Liz Cheney Is Not 'A Patriot' Because She Is Too Pro-Gay

Bryan Fischer has written a post declaring his opposition to the Liz Cheney after she announced that she will be challenging Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi in the Republican primary on the grounds that Cheney is not a patriot because she is insufficiently anti-gay:

The massive problem is that on values issues, which matter most right now for America’s future, she will fight for the team wearing lavender instead of the team wearing red, white and blue.

In 2009, she inartfully dodged two attempts to press her to declare her position on sodomy-based marriage, which in the end means just one thing: she’s for it.

Although I’m not aware that she has declared a position on ENDA, in 2009 she supported the State Department’s decision, in flagrant violation of DOMA, the law of the land at the time, to extend benefits to same-sex partners.

Said Ms. Cheney, “I think it’s wrong to discriminate, in those relationships, based on someone’s sexual preference.” Homosexual activists prefer her to Enzi for the sole reason that she just might be a “sleeper vote for LGBT rights.”

She supported the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, which is driving values-based members of the military out of the service and ushering in militant homosexuals. Currently, 55-60% of  all sexual assaults in the military now, thanks in part to the DADT repeal, are committed by homosexuals.

Liz Cheney will be an undeniably appealing candidate, and conservatives will be tempted to turn a blind eye toward her support for the deviancy cabal. But we do so not only at our peril but at the peril of the future of our country.

George Washington famously said, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness.”

The bottom line: Liz Cheney is not, under Washington’s definition, a patriot. She will throw her weight behind those who are placing improvised explosive devices beneath both of Washington’s indispensable pillars. When the roof collapses on us all, those who supported Liz Cheney will be partly to blame.

Right Wing Leftovers - 7/11/13

  • Bryan Fischer tweets that Sen. Orrin Hatch voted in favor of ENDA because he is a Mormon who wants to see polygamy legalized.
  • Fischer also says that "Christians are being moved out of the United States military so hyper-masculine homosexuals can move in, similar to the kind of homosexuals that formed Hitler's stormtroopers."
  • The Southern Baptist Convention's Russell Moore says gays can't get married because "same-sex marriage is impossible based upon what sexuality and what marriage is. So it's not that we're trying to disappoint our neighbors. We're saying this is for the good of human flourishing. And we love you -- that's the reason why not only do we say that we think there's some restrictions for you, there's some restrictions on us in terms of what this looks like."
  • Finally, One Million Moms objects to the new Discovery Channel show "Naked and Afraid" because the organization "considers the show soft porn."

Fischer: The Bible Mentions The Second Law Of Thermodynamics

Every once in a while, Bryan Fischer takes a break from attacking gays, and Muslims, and Mormons in order to impart a bit of biblically-sound scientific wisdom to his audience, like when he explained that only the Bible can provide accurate information regarding the age of the earth or how Jesus holds together the atomic nucleus.

On his broadcast today, Fischer once again put on his scientist cap to explain how the second law of thermodynamics, which he, for some reason, combined with the first law of thermodynamics and then proceeded to absurdly oversimplify, was first mentioned in the Bible; in Psalm 102, to be exact, which reads: 

In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.

They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment.

Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded.

But you remain the same, and your years will never end.

As Fischer said, scientists could have figured all of this out if they had simply read this passage from the Book of Psalms, written in 900 BCE, several thousand years before it was formulated:

Fischer to Immigration Opponents: 'Get Busy' and Procreate

Today on Focal Point, Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association warned that the White House, Senate and Supreme Court are controlled by “lawless, immoral and godless” people and that America’s last hope lies with “conservatives in the House of Representatives; they are the last link between the American people and any shred of constitutional form of government.”

However, Fischer says if the House approves immigration reform, then “that thread is going to snap and we will be plunging at warp speed into the abyss.”

But Fischer said that America could stave off the need for more immigrants if Americans would “get busy” and have more kids: “The whole argument for immigration is, ‘We got to get workers.’ Why? Because native-born Americans simply are not reproducing at rates fast enough to increase the population. So we know what we need to do. Let’s get busy.”

Fischer: New Yorker 'Promoting Child Endangerment and Child Abuse' by Having Bert and Ernie In a 'Homosexual Clinch' (VIDEO)

Expanding on his earlier column, American Family Association spokesman lashed out at The New Yorker for putting Bert and Ernie in a “homosexual clinch” on their new cover. “Ladies and gentlemen they are cuddling on a couch, this is a romantic interlude,” he said.

“I don’t know which is which.” After quoting statistics from the very very very discredited Mark Regnerus study about same-sex parenting, Fischer said, “This is grossly irresponsible for The New Yorker to promote this, they really are promoting child endangerment and they are promoting child abuse.”

Bryan Fischer Says Anti-Gay Activists Now 'Second Class Citizens,' Mat Staver Likens DOMA Case to 'Altering the Laws of Gravity'

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer claimed on his radio show today that anti-gay activists will become “second class citizens” and be relegated to “steerage status” as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision on the Defense of Marriage Act: “They’ve done to us exactly what they were falsely accusing us of doing to homosexuals.”

His guest, Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel, who is also the dean of Liberty University Law School, agreed, saying that the decision “demeans the institution of the United States Supreme Court.”

Staver agreed with Fischer that states should “simply ignore” the Supreme Court’s ruling …just as the government should ignore a court decision that upholds slavery, like Dred Scott, or a ruling which “alters the laws of gravity.”

“You can’t redefine marriage into something that it’s incapable of being, it’s incapable of being two people of the same sex,” Staver continued, adding that gay marriage is the “height of hubris” and “undermines the very foundation of our government.”

Earlier today, Staver argued that the Supreme Court “lost legitimacy” with its DOMA ruling:

Marriage predates government and civil authorities. No civil authority, including the Supreme Court, has the authority to redefine marriage. Marriage was not created by religion or government and is ontologically a union of one man and one woman. For any Court or civil authority to think it has the authority to redefine marriage is the height of hubris. Deconstructing marriage will hurt children and society. While today’s decision on DOMA did not redefine marriage, it has provided the foundation on which to do so. Today’s decision is the equivalent of the 1972 contraception decision involving unmarried couples and the so-called right to privacy on which the 1973 abortion decision in Roe v. Wade was constructed. Today, the Supreme Court has damaged its image, lost legitimacy, and set in motion considerable harm to society and to the State of the Union.

Fischer: Unconstitutional to Recognize Pro-Gay Marriage Supreme Court Ruling

Bryan Fischer is joining his American Family Association colleague Gary Glenn in calling on states to simply ignore any Supreme Court ruling that strikes down bans on same-sex marriage. Fischer even argues that it would be unconstitutional to follow a court decision that favors marriage equality, which he claims would effectively remove “We the people” from the Constitution.

Anything short of upholding DOMA, anything short of upholding Prop 8 in California will be a setback for the rule of law, it will be a setback for a constitutional form of government; in fact you can just eliminate the first three words of the Constitution: “We the people.” That will be utterly meaningless if the Supreme Court does not uphold Prop 8 and does not uphold DOMA, period. Anything short of that and the American people have been robbed of the capacity and the right and the authority to be a self-governing people.

If the states were to do it, the thirty states that have marriage amendments say, ‘fine, the Supreme Court has issued its ruling, we’re going to ignore it, they have exceeded their authority, we have no obligation. In fact, if we recognize their ruling, we give credence to it, then we are violating the Constitution because the Constitution gives them no authority to do that to us so we have compounded their unconstitutional act with an unconstitutional act of our own.

Fischer: Democrats Are Going to Tell President Obama to 'Sit in the Back of the Bus'

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer spent a segment gloating about how President Obama's recent speech in Berlin was an "absolute abysmal, colossal failure" because he spoke to only 4,500 invited guests, in comparison to the crowd of 200,000 who turned out to hear him when he spoke there as a candidate back in 2008 (unlike, say, President George W. Bush who was met by 20,000 protestors when he traveled there in 2002.)

"The thrill is gone from Barack Obama," Fischer declared as he predicted that Democrats would now put all of their support behind Hillary Clinton.

"What you're about to see," Fischer predicted, "is Barack Obama is going to be kicked to the back of the Democratic bus. This guy has now become a liability ... and the Democratic Party is going to tell him to sit in the back of the bus; the front of the Democratic bus belongs to the white person, Hillary Clinton":

Fischer: Liberals Support Immigration Because Conservatives are Outbreeding Them

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer explained that liberals support immigration reform because they are being out-bred by conservatives and so "ten, twenty years down the road, they're just going to be outnumbered."

"We are breeding our own voters," Fischer said of conservatives, whereas liberals "have got to import them ... so that's why they're so enamored with illegal aliens and amnesty for them is they've got to find some way to get these people on the voter rolls to just maintain numerical parity with conservatives":

E.W. Jackson: Using My Past Statements Against Me Is 'Persecution' and an Unconstitutional Religious Test

E. W. Jackson, the Republican candidate for Lt. Governor in Virginia, was the guest on Bryan Fischer's radio program today where he was treated to a sympathetic interview by a host who shares his radical views.

During the discussion, Jackson stood by his anti-gay and anti-abortion views and suggested that efforts to hold him accountable for his previous statements now that he is running for office was somehow an unconstitutional religious test.

Jackson seems to believe that things he said about political issues are not relevant to his political candidacy because he said those things in his capacity as a minister and so using them against him in his campaign amounts to anti-Christian persecution:

It's a sad commentary on our media and culture today that anybody that expresses a Biblical worldview is marginalized and, frankly, not too put too fine a point on it, persecuted for doing so. And I think that's a sad commentary.

But look, it's an attack ultimately on every church-going, Bible-believing Christian out there who holds to a traditional worldview and frankly, I think one of my goals is to champion their right to hold their views without being persecuted for it.


I think Americans are tired of being told that holding to Judeo-Christian values somehow makes you can idiot, as you put it, makes you backwoods, makes you ignorant and unless you buy into the sort of contemporary morality of the day, you are a person to be shunned.

Our Founding Fathers believed that there should never be a religious test and yet that's what we're seeing today. We're seeing people apply a religious test and they're saying anything you believed or said as a minister disqualifies you from serving as Lt. Governor because you hold to these Biblical views.

For some reason, Fischer did not disabuse Jackson of this notion and explain that while "the federal government cannot use a religious test, but voters can, and they should.  Let’s be done with the nonsense that asking questions about a candidate’s faith is inappropriate. It certainly is not. In fact, in some ways, the faith questions are the most important, because they go right to the issue of a man’s most deeply held convictions and values."

Fischer: AFA Was So Confident That it Only Prepared a Statement Praising Boy Scouts for Retaining Ban on Gay Scouts

Several months before the Boy Scouts of America put the decision on ending the ban on gay scouts to a vote at the National Annual Meeting in May, Bryan Fischer boldly guaranteed that there is literally no chance that a vote to end the ban would ever pass.

As the vote neared, it became increasingly clear that there was a very real chance that the vote would, in fact, pass and pass easily ... which is exactly what happened.

But according to Fischer, who recently appeared on The Dove TV to discuss the issue, the American Family Association was so confident that the measure would fail that the only press release the organization prepared was one praising the Boy Scouts for upholding the original policy.

"We had to scramble to issue a press release, a statement, when we found out the vote had gone the other way," Fischer admitted, "so it was a shocker to a lot of people, including to those of us here at AFA":

Fischer: Obama Has 'Muslim Sympathies' and His Enemies are Evangelical Christians

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer took a call from a listener who declared that anyone who doesn't understand that President Obama is a "communist Muslim" who is waging "holy jihad" against Evangelical Christians in America is a "pea brain," which prompted Fischer to reply that "a lot of what [the caller] had to say is exactly right."

Fischer went on to add his own two cents, declaring that this is "the most virulent anti-Christian, anti-Christ, anti-God administration that we've ever had in American history," adding, for good measure, that it is also anti-Semitic.

Saying that we don't know whether Obama is actually a Muslim or not, Fischer suggested that there is reason to suspect that he is because it is obvious that he "has Muslim sympathies" and that "he has never said a kind word about Christianity."

Citing an entirely unverified and dubious report in support of this claim, Fischer then went on to state that while President Bush's enemies were foreign enemies who targeted America, Fischer said that President Obama's enemies are domestic, which is why he is targeting Evangelical Christians like the American Family Association:

Fischer: End Sexual Assault in the Military By Banning Women and Gays

Bryan Fischer has a pretty simple solution for solving the problem of sexual assault in the military: ban women and gays.

On his radio program today, Fischer said that the purpose of public policy is to construct barriers to engagement in sinful behavior and so it makes no sense to allow women to serve in the military where they come into close contact with members of the opposite sex .

Fischer then went on to call for gays to likewise be banned from the military, and did so by misrepresenting an op-ed from the New York Times to claim that 90% of the sexual assaults in the military are "being committed by serial homosexual rapists": 

Lively: Following Boy Scout Victory, Gay Activists Will Launch a 'Blitzkrieg Against the Church'

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer brought on Scott Lively to bolster his assertions that scouting has always been used as a "major homosexual recruiting effort" going all the way back to Nazi Germany.

After ten minutes of pseudo-historical nonsense about how the German Wandervogel was designed to "revive the Greek ideal of pedagogic pederasty" and now the Boy Scouts had fallen to the same agenda, Lively declared that the Scouts had represented "the last secular resistance to homosexuality in our culture," which means that, within the next year, there is going to be "a blitzkrieg against the Church like we've never seen before" which will seek to wipe out the last remaining opposition to the gay agenda:

The reasoning behind this statement is that if appellate courts consistently strike down such bans, then the Supreme Court will not need to get involved right... MORE >
