The next time someone claims that the left is inventing this crazy idea that many on the religious right seek to impose a theocracy on America, we need merely remind them of the existence of Bryan Fischer. He makes no bones about wanting to impose Biblical law:
These are behaviors that can be made illegal, and should be made illegal: those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, the sexually immoral – that means it’s perfectly appropriate to have laws against what the law calls fornication, absolutely appropriate to make that illegal; men who practice homosexuality, perfectly permissible – in fact, we’re directed, we’re told in the Scriptures that it’s a good idea, this is the purpose of the law, it’s for the lawless and disobedient to engage in homosexuality – it’s perfectly appropriate for that kind of behavior to be against the law.
If arresting people solely for violating the rules of the Bible isn’t creating a theocracy, what else could it possibly be? And remember, Fischer is not some fringe figure. He is the chief spokesman for one of the most venerable “pro-family” organizations in the country. The Republican presidential candidates have flocked to his show to kiss his ring.
