The Bryan Fischer award is given to those who demonstrate a staggering degree of obliviousness to their own internal contradictions and project their own worst sins on to others. And Fischer himself displays this utter lack of self-awareness perfectly:
It’s worth repeating that secular fundamentalists have their own version of Sharia law, which differs little from the Sharia law of Islamic fundamentalists. Just as Muslims are determined to eradicate the presence of Christian symbols from the public square, so are secular fundamentalists.
It’s time to say a firm “No” to Sharia law, whether it’s the ACLU’s version or the Qur’an’s version.
If anyone is similar to those who want to impose Sharia law, it is, of course, Bryan Fischer. He is, after all, on record calling for throwing all gay people in prison. Despite the fact that he shares this vile bigotry with the reactionary Muslims, he still has claimed repeatedly that gay rights advocates are just like the Taliban. Because simpletons like him simply can’t make rational distinctions; anyone he disagrees with is wrong about everything in exactly the same way. All are the enemy and thus all are guilty of the same things no matter how different they actually are.
And perhaps he missed the part where the ACLU filed a federal lawsuit against a Minnesota charter school for endorsing Islam and teaching students to believe in, which resulted in the school shutting down.
