When Biblical Parallels Go Too Far: Fischer Compares Libya to Uriah the Hittite
In 2 Samuel 11, the Bible tells the story of King David and his adulterous affair with Bathsheba in which she becomes pregnant. In an effort to conceal the affair, David instructs the commander of his military to send Uriah the Hittite, Bathsheba's husband, home from war to spend time with his wife. But when he returns, Uriah insists on staying with David in the palace and refuses to see his wife so long as his fellow soldiers are still at war.
Seeing that his plan to conceal his adulterous relationship with Bathsheba will not work, David then instructs Joab, his military commander, to return Uriah to the front lines where the fighting is most intense and then suddenly withdraw all of his forces, leaving Uriah exposed where he will surely be killed ... and that is exactly what happens.
On Friday's radio broadcast, Bryan Fischer said that the deaths of the four Americans in Benghazi, Libya were just like what happened with Uriah the Hittite because they mistakenly thought that "President Obama cared enough about Americans citizens" to send support but instead "they were left out there to die" because of Obama's "sympathy toward Muslims":
