Who would Jesus waterboard?

Fischer argued on his radio program today that the Bible makes certain things permissible during times of war that would not be permissible during times of peace, adding that Jesus is a "warrior" who would probably approve of torture. "Christianity is not a pacifist religion," Fischer said. "The God that we serve is described in Exodus 15 as a 'man of war.' Now we often think of gentle Jesus, meek and mild, but let's not forget, according to Romans 19:13, when he comes back ... he will be riding a white horse and wearing his own robe, dipped in blood. That is a robe that is worn by a warrior who is inflicting casualties on the foe. So this is gentle Jesus, meek and mild; when we comes back, his robe is going to be dipped in blood because he too is a warrior":

Quote# 105066

The Scriptures tell us that one of the consequences for a nation that turns its back on God is “confusion of mind” (Deuteronomy 28:28). Nowhere is this more evident than in the tragic case of transgenderism.

Having accepted the lies of “that old deluder Satan” that they are trapped inside the body of the wrong gender, many resort to hormone therapy and even sex reassignment surgery in a vain, dangerous and enormously destructive effort to obliterate their true sexual identity.

[...]

Do we oppose the normalization of transgenderism because we hate transgendered individuals? Absolutely not. We flatly and unequivocally oppose the normalization of transgenderism because it destroys people. We do not oppose transgenderism because we hate people. We oppose it because we love them.

We do not want to see anyone’s life ravaged by the pathologies that accompany this disorder of the mind and soul.

[...]

God knew what he was doing when he assigned each of us our gender at the moment of conception. And he stands ready to help any willing individual come to a place of resolution and acceptance of the gender God assigned him at the moment of conception. “Confusion of mind” can, with God’s help, become clarity of mind.

Quote# 104877

The board had allowed an evangelical group to passively distribute Bibles on its campuses. Passive distribution means simply that nobody is handing them out. They are placed on a table and students can come by and pick one up if they want. If they don't want one, they don't have to go get one.

But once members of the Satanic Temple publicly declared their intentions to distribute material on the "philosophy and practice of Satanism," the board re-evaluated its stand and decided not only to ban Satan from its campuses but God too. No longer will Bible distribution be allowed on its campuses.

This incident serves as a prime example of how the gross distortion of the First Amendment is destroying religious liberty and turning Christian literature into the educational equivalent of pornography, something that is considered so toxic it must be kept from the eyes of inquisitive students.

I have written on numerous occasions that the purpose of the First Amendment, as Justice Joseph Story declares in his monumental history of the Constitution, was only to protect the free exercise of the Christian faith and to prevent the selection and designation of one Christian denomination as the official church of the United States.

Story said the purpose of the Founders in crafting the First Amendment was not to "countenance much less to advance Mohammedanism, Judaism or infidelity...but to exclude all rivalry among Christian sects" (meaning denominations).

Quote# 104678

On “Focal Point” today, host Bryan Fischer once again linked the supposed moral failings of Native Americans to the seizure of their land by European colonists.

Fischer recounted the Biblical tale of the Amorites, a group that had “lapsed into superstition and paganism and idolatry and sexual immorality and savagery” until they were vanquished by the Israelites. He then paraphrased God as saying, “I’m going to be patient with the Amorite people for 400 years, and if they continue to sin at the rate they’re sinning, every time they sin they’re putting a little more slop in the slop bucket, and if they keep doing that the slop bucket’s going to get full, and I’m going to have to empty out that slop bucket.”

Fischer then used the story to justify the violent expulsion of Native American people from their territory at the hands of white settlers. “This may even be a part of American history, when we think about the moral right for the nation and the peoples that God brought into this land to exercise sovereign control over the land,” he said. “Part of that equation may have to do with the immorality of those nations that were exercising sovereign control over this land at the time.”

Quote# 104168

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer made the case that the government can never endorse any position that is contrary to the will of God because government was established by God specifically for the purpose of carrying out his will, which is why gay marriage can never be legal. As Fischer explained, the entire idea of civil government came from God and therefore all earthly political and legal authority stems from God. As such, the purpose of civil government is to carry out the will of God, meaning that government can never remain neutral on moral issues. "God has called government to take sides in the culture war," Fischer said, "and God is instructing civil government to take the side of that which is right and good. That means government and those who hold government power have a divine responsibility to know the difference between good and evil so that they can reward the former and punish the latter." Thus, when government bans gay marriage, "it is doing a good thing," Fischer said. "It is doing a divinely ordained thing. It's doing its job. It's fulfilling its role as a minister of God"

Quote# 104033

It's been an incredible week for marriage equality in the U.S. (albeit not without a few setbacks), but one ultra-conservative pundit isn't having any of it.

The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer called the U.S. Supreme Court's Oct. 6 decision to turn away same-sex marriage appeals from Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin, Right Wing Watch first reported.

Fischer, whose opposition to same-sex marriage and other lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights is well-established, deemed the Supreme Court's decision "the de facto Roe vs. Wade of sodomy-based marriage" on his "Focal Point" radio show this week.

"It's going to be virtually impossible to stop this press and this push toward nationalizing, imposing on every state in the union, marriage that is based on the infamous crime against nature," he continued, before adding, "It's unconscionable, unconstitutional and completely, absolutely un-American."

In recent months, Fischer has slammed LGBT rights advocates as "belligerent" and "intolerant bullies" who represented a "tiny little minority" of the U.S. population.

He also denounced Burger King's "Proud Whopper" campaign, arguing that the fast food franchise's LGBT-friendly effort as a "bonehead move from a marketing standpoint."

"When people sit down to eat a hamburger, the last thing they want to be thinking about is two guys having sex," Fischer noted at the time.

Quote# 103894

Other religions, such as Islam, have no specific First Amendment rights since the Founders weren't even addressing alternatives to Christianity. Dealing with other religions was a matter for the states, not the central government. Other religions do, of course, have the presumption of religious liberty in America. As long as they behave themselves and don't trouble society, society will not trouble them. But if any one of them - say, Islam - proves troublesome, states have all the authority they need to deal with the trouble.

[...]

In fact, all authority over religious expression - every last bit - was delegated by We the People to the states. This means, for example, that states can constitutionally prohibit the building of mosques and Oklahoma can prohibit this weekend's satanic mass if it wishes to do so.

Thus any law or court that impinges on free religious expression is by definition flatly unconstitutional. No executive order can restrict the free expression of Christianity in any way, and no federal judge has any constitutional authority to issue a ruling that prohibits Christian prayer, Bible reading in schools, crosses or Ten Commandments monuments on public land or employers from taking Christian principle into account in personnel decisions. All those issues are for the states to decide.

The First Amendment was designed by the Founders to keep the intrusive and heavy hand of the central government from interfering in any way with freedom of Christian expression. It has been turned upside down by tyrannical and intrusive judges and is now used as a sledgehammer to pulverize into little tiny shards the very religious liberty it was designed to protect.

On Constitution Day, it’s time to get back to the Constitution the Founders gave us, not the one mangled out of recognition by black-robed tyrants. Let’s trade the religious oppression of the courts for the religious liberty of the Founders. There’s no better day to start.

Quote# 103893

[Bryan Fischer is referring to a Black Mass held by Satanists in the Oklahoma City Civic Center.]

Can city leaders constitutionally block this mass? If we were still using the Constitution given to us by the Founders, the answer would be an unequivocal yes.

The Satanists' argument is quite simple: the First Amendment guarantees the "free exercise" of "religion" to everybody, and thus the Constitution prohibits discrimination of any kind against the disciples of the Prince of Darkness.

This means a discussion of the meaning of the word "religion" in the First Amendment is unavoidable.

Now if by "religion" the Founders meant "any system of belief in a supernatural power," it's hard to see how the satanists can be denied.

But if by "religion" the Founders, as historian Joseph Story has written, meant "Christianity" and its various denominations, then the answer to this problem is quite simple. Oklahoma can ban this satanic mass if it chooses.

Quote# 103892

If there is any one thing the Mississippi constitution flatly and emphatically prohibits, it is a "marriage" between two lesbians. When the issue was on the ballot, 86% of voters in the Magnolia State pulled the lever for natural marriage.

Two lesbians getting married could not possibly be more illegal and unconstitutional anywhere in the United States than in Mississippi.

So how did lesbians NLF (initials used to shield their identity) and JRW get married last week in Mississippi and get an official marriage license to post proudly on Facebook? They committed biological fraud, that's how.

"Natalie" (not her real name) is so sexually confused she apparently believes she is a man trapped inside a woman's body, despite the fact that her DNA is 100% female and will be until the day she dies. She is a woman in every, single solitary cell of her body. Her birth certificate identifies her as female and will until the day she dies.

[...]

Natalie does not need to be enabled in this self-destructive path, she needs to be helped. Given the exceptionally high suicide rate among transgenders, she needs the kind of therapy that will help her reconcile her psychological identity with her biological one. She needs the kind of help that will enable her to leave the lesbian/transgender lifestyle altogether. Simple human compassion calls for nothing less.

[...]

This clearly is not a "marriage" that is permissible in Mississippi. Mississippi authorities, including the governor and attorney general, should immediately step in and invalidate this license.

And Mississippi's policy on transgenderism, if it permits this grotesque caricature of marriage, must be immediately changed.

Other states with marriage amendments in place should be on notice that Big Gay has found a way to bypass the will of the people and the supreme law of the state through fakery and pretense.

If Mississippi doesn't deal with this quickly, I expect we will soon see this couple featured on the cover of magazines and the front page of newspapers all across the fruited plain. They will be celebrated as the lesbians who pulled off an amazing feat: convincing good-hearted Mississippians to violate their own constitution under the color of the law.

Quote# 103703

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer recommended that the United States adopt an immigration policy based upon the Bible, meaning that all immigrants must convert to Christianity and completely leave behind their native practices, beliefs, culture, and language. If we "did immigration God's way," Fischer said, that would mean that "those who came to our shores would be expected to adopt our religious values and traditions — that would mean Christianity and not Islam — and they would leave behind their religion and their god." "That would mean leaving behind Islam and Allah," he explained, as well as adopting Judeo-Christian values, which means they they would not be allowed to complain about the sale or consumption of bacon or the inability to obtain Halal foods. "If this were to happen," he concluded, "we would have one god, we would have one law, we would have one culture, and we would have one language"
