Bryan Fischer: Blame Darwin, Liberals, Gays for Aurora Shooting

Bryan Fischer

It’s common for pundits and media talking heads to use things like the tragic killing in Aurora, Colorado to buttress or even advance their agenda. Gun control advocates point to the reckless distribution of firearms, while moral conservatives blame the loosening of moral strictures in our culture.

Things I Hate (But Shouldn’t)

I know, Christians, love everyone and everything, right? Mister Bluebird on my shoulder and all that crap. Well, that ain’t me.

As a writer of mainly theological material, it’s expected that I’ll use certain buzzwords and will avoid some topics that simply should not be talked about in polite company, let alone church. Sounds like a challenge. I like challenges. Enter the new book series I’m co-creating and editing for Chalice Press, called “Where’s the Faith?” The acronym by which the series is known is “WTF?,” a brief nod to the provocateur in me.
