During Tuesday’s edition of Focal Point, the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer claimed he does not believe in “imposing” his values in the public square.
This is the same Bryan Fischer who said that the government should treat gays like drug addicts, ban gays from becoming school teachers, prohibit gays from serving on the Supreme Court or any public office, force immigrants to convert to Christianity, bar Muslims from building houses of worship or serving in government, make the US justice system based on the Bible and stone whales according to Biblical precepts. And that’s not even the half of it.
Fischer: So these principles on which this nation was founded: the sanctity of the family, the sanctity of marriage, the sanctity of life, the sanctity of private property, all of these things are established in the Judeo-Christian tradition and our nation was founded on these principles and are as valid today as they were when they were first given. So we believe that these values should be honored in our public life, not just in the private life, not just in our churches. God did not give his word just for people of faith, this was a word for his creation, the word for men and women created in his image.
We’re not talking about imposing these values, we’re not talking about insisting that other people acknowledge and obey these values, we are simply talking about public policy that honors certain behavior and discourages other behavior.
And we think that’s important, and we think our culture is in some pretty deep trouble right now because we have left our moorings, we’ve lost our way, we are wondering now in sort of this immoral wilderness, this kind of this blindly wondering aimlessly around in this moral abyss and we believe that’s left our nation in a very tenuous and vulnerable and dangerous place.
