Fischer Presents Standard Theocratic Vision

Bryan Fischer presented the primary argument in favor of theocracy on his radio show this week. It goes like this: Rights come from God and the Bible says God is against certain things. Therefore, no one has a right to do anything that is condemned in the Bible. I suggest Fischer be arrested the next time he eats shrimp.

    Considering Exodus and such; I suggest Fischer be arrested for “Existing While Being Human”. But that will get tossed out in court because that would imply that he is a human being and thus has a tiny amount of empathy. So why not Impersonating a Human Being? Can we get that law on the books within five years; or is that too risky for Liberty?

    Ed,

    It would appear that Dennis Markuze is again violating the terms of his parole.

    1. Rights come from god?

    Where do this get this one from?

    Which gods? There are hundreds or thousands at least.

    2. The biblical god is against everything. It’s estimated that under biblical law, 99% of the US population would end up dead under a pile of rocks.

    It also says in Timothy to obey the rulers as they are chosen by god and pay your taxes. I’m sure Fischer is going to have problems with this one inasmuch as our president is Obama.

    Arrest for shellfish? That’s pretty wishy-washy. The Babble clearly calls for him to be stoned to death if he wears poly-cotton socks.

    So let’s see if we can understand Adolf’s combined “philosophy” based on all his past statements.

    You have the right to do whatever God supposedly commands. You don’t have the right to be anything besides Christian. Existing while gay, Muslim, or native American is risky at best.

    But we can’t have taxes or welfare or anti-discrimination laws, that’s tyranny!

    Seriously, how can somebody be so goddamn stupid?

  7. Sastra:

    Fischer is confusing “rights” with “permission.” Rights (and duties) are contractually derived among equals: permission is given by an authority in charge.

    What obligation to humanity is God under? If there is none, then stop talking about “rights” and where they come from. You’ve no idea.

    Awesome breakdown, and in a mere two sentences; that’s brilliant.
