Fischer: Mikey Weinstein Causes Rape

The U.S. Air Force Academy finds itself caught up in a scandal over athletes drinking, doing drugs and possibly committing rape, and Bryan Fischer knows exactly who is to blame: Mikey Weinstein. Why? Because he callously ripped Jesus from the school and robbed those poor kids of all their moral virtue.

The Air Force Academy was once the friendliest of all the military academies toward Christianity. With the approval of team captains, legendary coach Fisher DeBerry once hung a banner in the football team’s locker room which had the motto of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes emblazoned on it. It included, in part, the following: “I am a Christian first and last…I am a member of Team Jesus Christ.”

Players remember warmly the tradition of putting their arms around each other and reciting the Lord’s Prayer in unison before taking the field.

But it wasn’t long before atheist Mikey Weinstein filed a virulently anti-Christian lawsuit against DeBerry and the school, despite the fact that no evidence was produced that DeBerry ever discriminated against anyone based on his religious beliefs or made any effort to impose his religious beliefs on anyone.

No matter. It wasn’t long before the anti-Christ crusade of Weinstein and a run of subpar seasons led to DeBerry being run out of the academy in early 2007. When DeBerry left, he took his faith with him and the spirit of Christianity left the football team and the locker room along with him.

Now according to Fox News, the Academy is awash in scandal, centered around football players who are credibly accused of rape, drug use and cheating. DeBerry is forced out in 2007, and scandal rears its ugly head just three years later. Coincidence? I think not.

Well there ya go. He doesn’t think it’s a coincidence. How can you argue with that kind of logic? Arrest Mikey as an accomplice!

What happened here is no secret to those who know the Scriptures. Jesus said that his disciples, Fisher DeBerry included, are the “salt of the earth” and “the light of the world.” Salt was used in the first century to arrest the spread of decay and corruption. In the absence of refrigeration, it was the only way to preserve certain food products. When salt is removed, corruption sets in.

When the light of the world is removed, the world – including the locker rooms of football teams – is plunged into moral and spiritual darkness.

Bottom line: there is a solution to the Air Force Academy’s problems. Remove the cause – Mikey Weinstein and his atheistic trouble-making – and find another coach like Fisher DeBerry and turn him loose to bring the spirit of Christ back to the Academy.

I can flat out guarantee you that rapes will diminish, drug use will diminish, and cheating on tests will diminish. And the Academy will regain some of its lost luster. Your move, Air Force.

So what was to blame back in 2003 when a staggering 12% of female cadets were the victims of rape and 70% reported sexual harassment? Why didn’t that “spirit of Christ” that DeBerry had “turned loose” prevent it then? Mikey hadn’t even formed his organization or gotten involved in proselytizing at the Academy at the time. As always, Fischer’s claims do not match up with reality.

    Bryan Fischer needs to check the batteries in his irony meter.

    That was Saddam Hussein’s fault. Didn’t you get the memo?

    “I am a Christian first and last…”

    Because if there is one thing we expect in a military that is meant to defend the entire nation and its Constitution, it’s declarations of narrow, sectarian tribalism.

    Salt also kills non-halophillic plants* and causes corrosion in metals such as car bodies and steel guttering.
    So salt-of-the-Earth is a good thing, except in those cases when it’s not.
    Wow. What a compelling argument!

    Also, football.

    Indeed, the Air Force Academy was a virtual paradise before that snake, Mikey Weinstein, came along. Thanks to his wickedness the innocent protagonist was expelled, thereby bringing about all manner of sins.

    Now where have I heard that story before?

    ‘Salt of the bacon’ would be a compliment. ‘Salt of the earth’ is what Rome did to Carthage.

    Because those miscreants were no true Scotsmen Christians, of course!

    ” When DeBerry left, he took his faith with him and the spirit of Christianity left the football team and the locker room along with him.”

    Is DeBerry some kind of demigod himself? If the “spirit of Christianity” really was all it took for the Air Force Academy to be wholesome and pure, and DeBerry packed it up with him when he buggered off, wouldn’t that suggest the Academy’s athletes are pretty weak Christians, and amoral goons to boot? And that Christ Hisself is pretty weak sauce?

    They were asking for it by trying to take men’s roles instead of staying home having babies like good Christian wives.

    Fischer: DeBerry is forced out in 2007, and scandal rears its ugly head just three years later. Coincidence? I think not.

    The last three words are the only accurate part of that.

    According to Wikipedia, “DeBerry [born 1938] retired on December 15, 2006 with the most wins and highest winning percentage (.608) in Air Force football history. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as a coach in 2011.”

    Perhaps he has evidence that all the rapes and sexual assaults in 2003 were done by the non-Christians that the Air Force Academy allowed to enter its doors despite it being a Christian school?

    Don’t you remember the right-wing narrative at the time? That was due to slutty sex-having sluts who were having slutty sex and tempting the godly patriotic virtuous True Christian male cadets (WHO WERE FIGHTING FOR OUR FREEDOM — WHY DO YOU HATE THE TROOPS?!) with their dirty sexy girlybits and shaking their hips when they walked to class. The whole affair merely proved that women aren’t suited to armed service because they can’t handle the hardships of military life, like bland food, hard beds, and being assaulted and raped by your nominal friends and comrades.

    See how easy that was? White male True Christians™ can always make it Somebody Else’s Fault.

    Unless I am mistaken, Salt does not stop meat from rotting. Salt only slows the decaying down based uopn how much fat is in the meat.

    Regardless, we can all agree that Fisher is a tool….and not any type of useful tool.
