It almost seems to be routine protocol for a right-wing nut job to make some insanely inappropriate comment following a colossal gun massacre. Usually all the dishonor goes to washed-up, pretend musician and Mad Max look-a-like, Ted Nugent. Of course, there’s still time for Nuge the Stooge to weigh in with his typical “my penis is too small” gun-worshiping craziness, but for now all the dishonor goes to right-wing Christian Radio Host, Bryan Fischer.
Even as authorities and victims were still in shock as a deranged gunman managed to murder his own mother and 27 others, including 18 children, Fisher was already recycling the overused pages from the handy fundamentalist handbook. And, boy, does Fisher put the ‘mental’ in fundamentalist.
Fischer said that God could have protected the victims of this massacre, but didn’t because “God is not going to go where he is not wanted” and so if school administrators really want to protect students, they will start every school day with prayer.” (Right Wing Watch)
Watch the video:
God, who usually is helping overpaid burly thugs get open in the end-zone for a touchdown pass and making sure that some drunken bar-hopping escapade didn’t result in a pregnancy, is now apparently sacrificing the lives of innocent children and adults because our founders implemented a separation of church and state. Now, I do not believe in heaven or hell, but I can safely and definitively say that there is an incinerator in the works for Fischer’s testicles upon death. For those considering Christianity, however, Fisher’s words should be taught by clergy as the worst example of opportunism ever. At least he didn’t blame gays this time.
