Bryan Fischer Says 'God Took Antonin Scalia Home' To Make SCOTUS The Central Issue In The Election

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer echoed Glenn Beck as he asserted that God "took home" the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia last weekend in order to highlight the importance of the Supreme Court in the upcoming presidential election.

"I believe God took Antonin Scalia home," Fischer said. "Antonin Scalia shows up and God says, 'Well done, good and faithful servant, you lived out every one of the days that I had written for you in my book, welcome home.' And the timing of this, I believe, God was arranging so that the issue in this election would be focused on the Supreme Court, so that the Supreme Court replacement would be the defining issue of this campaign. Because God knows that we're running out of chances, this is God in His grace calling Antonin Scalia home to his reward in order to make this the defining issue of the 2016 campaign."
