Bryan Fischer spent two segments on his radio program today reading from his latest column, in which he warns that if the Supreme Court strikes down state bans on gay marriage, Christians will be turned into pariahs and find their churches and ministries stripped of their tax exempt status and shut down.
But the first order of business, Fischer warned, would be to “turn the Bible into Mein Kampf” and prohibit it from being studied or read in schools or public places.
“Anyone who opposes the normalization of homosexuality will be treated as a racist,” Fischer warned. “Anyone, from that day forward, in America who opposes the normalization of homosexuality, who opposes same-sex marriage, will be lumped together by the Supreme Court with the Nazis, with the KKK, with slave holders, and with Aryan supremacists. The Bible will be classified as hate speech from the beginning to the end and it won’t be long before efforts are made to ban the Bible in public schools, to ban it in school libraries, to ban in it public libraries and to forbid the study of the Bible or the reading of the Bible on any campus in any public setting”:
Fischer’s warning makes no sense, of course, considering that the reading, study, and purchase of “Mein Kampf” is currently entirely legal in this country.
