Great catch by the invaluable Right Wing Watch:
It’s a sad commentary on our media and culture today that anybody that expresses a Biblical worldview is marginalized and, frankly, not too put too fine a point on it, persecuted for doing so. And I think that’s a sad commentary.
But look, it’s an attack ultimately on every church-going, Bible-believing Christian out there who holds to a traditional worldview and frankly, I think one of my goals is to champion their right to hold their views without being persecuted for it.
I think Americans are tired of being told that holding to Judeo-Christian values somehow makes you can idiot, as you put it, makes you backwoods, makes you ignorant and unless you buy into the sort of contemporary morality of the day, you are a person to be shunned.
Our Founding Fathers believed that there should never be a religious test and yet that’s what we’re seeing today. We’re seeing people apply a religious test and they’re saying anything you believed or said as a minister disqualifies you from serving as Lt. Governor because you hold to these Biblical views.
In sum, EW Jackson is trying to hide behind religion – his own bizarre version, anyway – to try and excuse the dozens (hundreds?) of examples of his own bigoted, hateful, extreme, insane comments. Pathetic.
By the way, for those of you who aren’t familiar with Bryan Fischer, just a few (there are many, many more!) examples of his ultra-bigotry, idiocy, and all-around insanity are as follows. Something tells me that the vast majority of Christians would not agree with Bryan Fischer on any of this crap.
*Fischer: Obama Has ‘Muslim Sympathies’ and His Enemies are Evangelical Christians
*Fischer: End Sexual Assault in the Military By Banning Women and Gays
*Bryan Fischer, Boy Scouts on Parade, and Nazi Germany
*Fischer: Striking Down DOMA Will Lead to Incest, Pedophilia, Bestiality and the End of America
*Fischer: Women Were Designed To Be Ruled Over and Focus Their Energy on Making a Home for Their Children & Husband
*Fischer: The Boy Scouts Are Now the ‘Boy Sodomizers of America’
*Fischer: Obama Plans to Forcibly Disarm Christians
*Fischer: ‘Eventually All of America Is Going to Agree With Me’ to Ban Muslims and Mosques
*Fischer: ‘Homofascists’ Will Force Christians to Wear Patches, Just Like Nazis Did to the Jews
