AFA’s Fischer: Any Muslim Unwilling to Renounce Islam Ought to be Denied Entry to the US

In a move that comes as no surprise, the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer uses news of an arrest of a suspect in the attempted Times Square bombing to reiterate his call to cut off immigration to all Muslims who refuse to renounce their religion: 

It’s simply not possible to watch every Muslim with an SUV or a van 24/7. This same incident can be repeated anywhere at anytime in any American city, and we won’t be able to do anything but scoop up body parts.

The objective observer who is not blinded by decaying concepts of multiculturalism can surely see it is wrongheaded for any nation to grant citizenship to people whose religion teaches them that they have a sacred obligation to kill their hosts.

So far, we have been saved only by the incompetence of the Christmas Day underwear bomber and by the incompetence of Shahzad, who mis-wired his bomb and used the wrong kind of fertilizer. In other words, we have been lucky rather than smart. It’s time to get smart and close our borders to followers of a prophet who teaches them that their god wants them to kill Americans.

If they are willing to renounce their allegiance to the prophet and the religion of Muhammad, and disown the Koran and everything it teaches about killing infidels, wife-beating, and second-class citizenship for Christians, then they can become good Americans. Until then, it’s impossible. Their religion teaches them a value system that is wholly at odds with American ideals. They will simply represent an element that will tear asunder what remains of our cultural unity and pose an increasing danger to innocent American lives.

Because we love people, we want Muslims to leave the deception, darkness and viciousness of Islam to find light and truth in the message of the Prince of Peace. In order to be for Muslims, we must be against Islam. We are pro-Muslim but anti-Islam.

If someone has a better idea, I’m all ears. Until then, I remain convinced that if we truly care about the safety and security of the American people, Muslim immigration must come to a halt. That’s not Islamophobia, it’s Islamo-realism.

Such a move, of course, will do nothing to protect us from the millions of Muslims who are already here, many of them clearly Amerophobes and already radicalized. But at least we’ll have fewer of them to watch.

I don’t know why Fischer is now saying that there is no way “to protect us from the millions of Muslims who are already here,” since it was just a few weeks ago when he called for the deportation of every Muslim in America, including those who had become citizens, unless they “are willing to convert to Christianity and renounce Islam, Allah, Mohammed and the Koran [and] become not just good Christians but true Americans.”
