‘Dr’ Alex McFarland is a Genius

“Dr” Alex McFarland is the director of the Center for Christian Worldview and Apologetics at North Greenville University. He isn’t actually a doctor, though. In fact, he was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Southern Evangelical Seminary the same year he was named its president, which sounds totally legit. But you can’t put anything past him.

In the wake of the tragic downing by a surface-to-air missile of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, author, apologist and culture expert Dr. Alex McFarland is concerned that American planes could be vulnerable to the same kind of terrorist act.

“Here’s this rocket that took down an airplane that was thousands of feet in the air,” says McFarland. “With technology today there could be terrorists very far away from an airport who could accurately draw a bead on a passenger plane and bring it down.”

Wow. He just discovered that airplanes can be shot down. Better late than never, I suppose. And he knows how to prevent it:

“We’ve got to stop murdering three thousand babies a day in abortion mills,” he says. “We need a president and elected officials that not only will follow the American rule of law but the law of God and stand for marriage, and not the sodomy and immorality that’s been foisted on the America people by a 45-year marketing campaign called the gay agenda.”

McFarland says to ensure that the next terrorist act is not Americans being assassinated on American soil, the country’s leaders and citizens should immediately turn to God.

Yeah, cuz that will totally stop those rockets from shooting down planes.

    Although I’m sure others do it, right-wing Christians are the only ones that I’ve come across that use the title “Dr.” on the basis of an honorary degree. Can you imagine the reaction if our President started calling himself “Dr. Obama” after getting an honorary degree?

    @#1: I’ve always hated it when people do that. Heck, my wife and have legit Ph.D.s and don’t refer to ourselves as “Dr.” outside of appropriate professional contexts.

    If he really said that it’s difficult not to see it as a threat.

    Is it just me or does this sound like a threat? “Better stop abortions an gay marriage or … uh … somebody is gonna start shooting planes down on American soil!”

    He should get together with Ted Cruz and work this out. Cruz thinks recognizing and avoiding this possibility is giving in to terrorists.

    Obama has a Juris Doctor (JD) degree from Harvard so he can legitimately call himself Dr. Obama. But like most lawyers, he doesn’t.

    McFarland isn’t even being original here – this is just a retread of one of Jerry Fallwell’s greatest hits. Of course back then it was terrorists flying planes into buildings, but it was still the fault of all Americans who didn’t kowtow to the correct perversion of religion.

    EVER SINCE I TURNED TO GOD NO ONE HAS SHOT ME DOWN!!! CHECKMATE ATHIESTS!!!

    immediately turn to God.

    If god is everywhere, how does one “turn” to god?

    If god is everywhere, then he is up my rectum. Doesn’t that mean that god is gay?

    When was the last time you flew over Ukraine?

  12. Trebuchet says

    Note that the terrorists in question are undoubtedly Orthodox Christians who were provided a sophisticated weapon by that noted gay-lover, Vladimir Putin. You know, the guy the Christian Right has been so much in love with the past couple of years.

    McFarland is right. Any day now, I’m sure one of those Honduran children is going to smuggle a truck-mounted SAM across the border and shoot down some of our planes.

    moarscienceplz “McFarland is right. Any day now, I’m sure one of those Honduran children is going to smuggle a truck-mounted SAM across the border and shoot down some of our planes.”
    Actually, if history is any guide, in a few generations those Honduran’s great-grandkids will stand on this side of the border trying to keep the next wave out*.

     
    * “They don’t have good, solid, down-to-Earth American names, like Pineda, Cardona or Tabora, or the good, solid, down-to-Earth American Values that come with them! And, to all those eye-leegal immigrants out there stealing our jobs and mooching off the welfare; this is ‘Merika, speak English rightly like we does! Booo! Go home, Antarctican!”

    This is new to me. I had no idea surface to air missiles were powered by buttsex.
