Bryan Fischer Calls Freedom From Religion Foundation Request "Northern Aggression": VIDEO


Reacting to the Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation's request that schools stop airing a prayer before football games, American Family Association radio host Bryan Fischer yesterday said such atheism-based movements looking to boot religion from the public sphere amount to "Northern aggression against the South" and suggests calling in the National Guard to protect Biblical perspectives.

  1. This aggressive pitbull is promoting civil war.

  2. I love that he's equating the side of religious protection with the South in the Civil War. Doesn't he know how that ended?

  3. actually, ceasing that kind of public prayer is actually (SCRIPTURALLY) following the commandment of Christ.

    what, do all conservative Christians in america ignore Christ's "Sermon on the Mount"?

    He told y'all to keep your prayer in private. In your 'closet'. For real.

  5. Wow, he actually used the phrase "Northern aggression"? 150 years later, we're back to that?

    I used to laugh at rumors that the South would try again to secede; if Obama wins re-election, we just might see a couple of states consider it, in the name of trying to form a more "Godly, Bible-based" nation. (Which, of course, is the antithesis of our Constitution and America, but try telling them that.) Mississippi, Alabama, Oklahoma, and Texas are all probably on the short list--you know, the same ones who suffer from the highest levels of poverty, obesity, out-of-wedlock marriages, failing schools, and Honey Boo Boo.

  6. good for him! America was founded on christian beliefs and nowhere does it say in the constitution that you cannot pray in public palces, look up your history and read speeches from the architects of this "once" great nation. I applaud this man!

  7. he needs to shut up!!

  8. JLO, please specifically explain "America was founded on Christian beliefs."

    Slavery? Followed by Segregation?

    What about the fact that in the bible, in the sermon on the mount, Christ is attributed with commanding that prayer be done IN PRIVATE and not made public?

    If America was built on Christian beliefs why doesn't it include THAT one?

    Of course, you're just a piece-of-S**t troll who's likely not smart enough to answer me but hey, it's worth a shot ;-)

  9. JLo, please go back to Otherwise, I'm sure there's a bridge somewhere out there looking for a troll like you to dwell beneath it.

  10. Fischer says things like this to keep his name and picture out there. This man is on one BIG ego trip. He thinks if Romney wins the election, Romney will coming running to him for advice.

  11. Ugh, I grew up in the South and still identify as a Southerner, but people like this make me cringe. When backed into a corner, they always bring out some arcane Civil War reference - and we know how that worked out for folks down there. Thankfully.

  12. Just like people like him called the North's push to end slavery, the War of Northern Aggression (Otherwise know as the Civil War) and just like we were taught in our segregated Mississippi classrooms that Northerners coming into the state to promote integration and voting rights/access were "foot soldiers in the ongoing war of Northern Aggression". I kid you NOT! I can personally attest to the fact that this happened in Mississippi public schools before integration. After integration we were quickly transferred to all-white, private, "Christian" schools.

  13. Actually, I'd call it a lawsuit. Technically, a civil society resolves issues through non-violent means like lawsuits, though lawsuits can be a very expensive waste of time and can involve a lot of heated emotions. The real issue here is the consolidation of Baptist power in the South and Midwest. This hegemony, rather than the old Protestant polyglot has allowed the BF's of the world to gain political power. The real threat to Baptist power is Catholic Hispanic immigration, but they are often converting to Baptist theology these days too. So, the lawsuit is the least of BF's issues.

  14. Why do I have to keep seeing this idiot and his laughably warped views on this blog? He's a moron and not worth any of our time. For the love of God just ignore him.

  15. JLO..Do your homework. America was based on religious freedoms. The freedom to worship and believe what and whom you will. Afterall...most of our founding Fathers were Deist and Masons. The very Constitution says..."and they are endowed by their Creator..." The very word "their" not "the" Creator. Their Creator. Whatever they believe in. People need to do their studies. Did y'all fail in school? Did you pay attention? or are you listening to Fundie-wing {not worth the name Right-Wing} rhetoric?

  16. Because that's what the National Guard is for, to protect Biblical beliefs.

  17. Actually "JLO" the Founders were Deists.

    That's doesn't mean what you think it means.

  19. Broadcasting Live from Tupelo Miss. You stupid little man. This was decided 50 years ago by the Supreme Court. And yes the ACLU will sue the schools ass right now if this happened or is happening. Your religion and beliefs are not the only one's that matter even though your facist, Nazi saggy ass would like it to be another way.

  20. This man is one twinkle away from a straight jacket....

    Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law.
    -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Dr. Thomas Cooper, February 10, 1814

    Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between church and State.
    -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Danbury Baptist Association, CT., Jan. 1, 1802

    Where the preamble declares, that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed by inserting "Jesus Christ," so that it would read "A departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion;" the insertion was rejected by the great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mohammedan, the Hindoo and Infidel of every denomination.
    -Thomas Jefferson, Autobiography, in reference to the Virginia Act for Religious Freedom

    Shall I go on JLO?

  21. I don't know... But every time I see something from Bryan Fischer, I can't hep but think of one if my Dad's old descriptive terms from my childhood.... "Batshit Crazy" I don't really even knowcwhatvthat means, exactly, but every time he appears, that's what pops into my head.

  22. "the same ones who suffer from the highest levels of poverty, obesity, out-of-wedlock marriages, failing schools, and Honey Boo Boo."

    Most, though not all of that, is due to the population of those states being much more heavily black than the others. If the population of Connecticut or Massachusetts were 38% the way Mississippi's is, I can assure you they would be much closer to it on all those measures......

  25. @Rick you need a new monitor if Bryan Fisher doesn't look lily white.

    @dback "...and Honey Boo Boo" Thanks I needed that!
