Fischer: Jesus Would Support Torture

I find it amusing that some Christians point to Jesus’ command to love thy neighbor to get out of all the barbarism of the Old Testament, like slavery is wrong now because we’re supposed to love our neighbor.

Fischer: We Torture Because of ‘Christian Principles’

Bryan Fischer continues to insist that what we did to so many detainees was not torture — bet it would be torture if a Muslim did it — and he goes even further, saying that they had no legal rights at all.

Fischer: Democrats are ‘Juvenile Delinquents’ for Releasing Torture Report

As one could easily predict, Bryan Fischer’s response to the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee report on torture was monumentally stupid.

But here’s Bryan Fischer ranting about it:

Fischer: God ‘Quickened the Campaigns’ of Republicans

There are few things I find more amusing than the way fundamentalist Christians use language. Only in fundie circles will you ever hear the word “fellowship” as a verb, for example (“we’re going fellowshiping!”). Bryan Fischer provides a perfect example in claiming that God “quickened the campaigns” of Republican candidates:

Shocker: Bryan Fischer is Clueless About Net Neutrality

President Obama has come out in favor of net neutrality, so naturally the right wing must come out against it (he really should come out in favor of breathing to see them all hold their breath until they turn blue). But like Ted Cruz, Bryan Fischer has absolutely no idea what net neutrality actually is:
