Fischer: Ban Muslims From Coming to America

In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, Bryan Fischer is once again beating the drum for banning all Muslims from entering the country. Because remember, the First Amendment only applies to Christians, who generously allow others to have their freedom but retain the right to stop doing so any time they please.

I’ve got a better idea. How about all religious bigots be forced to leave the country? And remember, this is not some fringe figure ranting on a blog, this is one of the top officials of one of the largest and most influential religious right groups in the country and he has a radio show that Republican politicians and pundits regularly appear on.

    I bet the original residents of North America wish they’d managed to ban the christians.

    How about requiring military service by all people who criticize Medal of Honor recipients for not having high enough body counts?

    How does anyone know if a person is a Muslim or not?

    Sam Harris does, but he won’t tell you how it’s done.

    Wow.

    Wow.

    This is something I would never support and would be impossible in practice anyway, but….can you imagine?

    Think how much we’d get done.

    Too bad we can’t use the method that the Austrians used in the 16th-17th centuries to find Ottoman spies and infiltrators: have them piss.

    Duh: look at their genealogical tree, at their pedigree: that’s what christian fundies have been doing since the reconquista, with delightful results

    Re naturalcynic @ #7

    At least in the US, it wouldn’t do much good as over half the male population is circumcised.

    I like how Fischer’s question pretty much contradicts the fairly ubiquitous claim made by a lot of OTHER anti-Muslim individuals (AMI) that taqiyya allows people of the Islamic faith to lie in order to advance it (i.e., if the AMI interpretation of taqiyya is accurate, then the Muslim immigrants would answer a big fat “NO!” to his question).

    .. remember, this is not some fringe figure ranting on a blog, this is one of the top officials of one of the largest and most influential religious right groups in the country and he has a radio show that Republican politicians and pundits regularly appear on.

    Y’know its not so much that I find that hard to remember so much as plain hard to believe instead.

    *This* is their idea of a Top Official? This fool’s show is a must-appear-on? For realz?
