It is becoming abundantly clear that we could never parody Bryan Fischer if we tried because he is constantly dreaming up absurd claims that we couldn’t even begin to match in our wildest imagination.
On his radio program yesterday, Fischer was discussing his view that every voter must have a religious test for candidates running for office, which was prompted by the dust-up over Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith at last week’s Values Voter Summit.
During the discussion, Fischer defended Robert Jeffress’ right to his “sincerely held religious belief” that Mormonism is a cult … which then somehow morphed into an assertion by Fischer that Christians are really the victim here because it is the Mormon church which believes that Christians are a cult:
If somebody is true to their Mormon faith – I mean, if they’re devout – Mormonism, they believe, restored the church of Jesus Christ. It was gone, it disappeared, all the church was corrupt, there was no representation of the Gospel of Christ. This was Joseph Smith, he said “I talked to God about it. He said ‘don’t join any churches; they’re all corrupt, they’re all gone; my church is not here on planet Earth; you and you alone can restore my original church.'”
So, as far as devout Mormons are concerned, the entire history of Christianity, the entire church is one big ginormous cult, if they’re going to be honest about their own faith and about their own religion. So if anybody’s out there saying something is a cult, it’s the LDS Church!
