Fischer Wants Victim's Family To 'Pull The Lever' During Executions Because That Is What The Bible Says
Bryan Fischer continues his campaign to turn the United States of America into a fundamentalist Christian theocracy, declaring on his radio broadcast today that the oldest male relative of a murder victim ought to be allowed to "pull the lever" when the killer is executed because that is what the Bible dictates.
Reading from Joshua 20, which allowed those who inadvertently kill someone to flee to a city of refuge where they would be protected from "the avenger of blood," Fischer asserted that the phrase was understood to mean that the oldest male relative of the victim had the legal right to avenge the blood of their relative.
To Fischer, this demonstrates that God wants the immediate family of victims to be involved in meting out justice and so our legal system should be changed so that if, for instance, someone were to be executed by firing squad, the oldest male relative of the victim would give the order to fire.
"Or if it is the electric chair," Fischer continued, "the law would give to the oldest male in the family the right pull the lever ... so that the family participates, they have the sense of satisfaction that the death of their loved one has been avenged."
"I know that will sound radical to some of you," he admitted, "but it makes perfectly good sense to me":
