Fischer: Christians Will be Made to Wear Symbols Like Jews

Bryan Fischer continued his lunatic ravings, saying that “we’re getting to the point where these homofascists are going to force us to wear on our sleeve some kind of identifying marker so people will know who the racists and the homophobes and the bigots are.” No Bryan. We know who you are because you proudly announce it. And the fact that no one has ever tried to stop you from doing so might be a clue that your persecution complex is moronic.

    I thought they already did wear symbols…

    You know those things that look a bit like Thor’s hammer.

    Ed writes of Fischer:

    We know who you are because you proudly announce it.

    Exactly so. Fischer and his fellow bigots don’t need to be made to wear symbols on their sleeves to identify them as cruel & bigoted: they proudly wear their hateful emotions there already, for all to see.

    Telling that he puts “racists” and “bigots” in separate categories.

  • iangould

    Isn’t the master plan to outlaw all expressions of religion?

    Ror the fundie NASCAR fan I think a simple cross with a slumped, dying JESUS with a Southern Comfort or Grizzly cap, atop a “3” or whatever other racing demigod the wearer is partial to.

    For cath-o-lics I propose a line drawing of a fatherly sorta guy and a young, impressionable lad. I leave their pose to the reader’s imagination.

    Speaking of signs and symbols.

    I know that Ed will get to it eventually, but the events at the Marathon yesterday…

    At least three killed, over 140 injured, many seriously.

    FBIBPDDHSNCAA have stated that they have no current suspects and that he is a Saudi National.

    Our HEAVENLY FATHER has taken note and retaliated by visiting a magnitude 8 earthquake on Iran, so, THERE heathens!!

    Speaking of phony persecution stories, some loony-right wankers are now saying the Boston bombings were a false-flag-op by the US government to justify expanding TSA’s reach to sports events:

    This leads me to believe that the loony right at least suspect (and some of them may already know) that the Boston bombings were the work of one (or more) or their own.

    I usually look for the “god hates fags” sign…

  • Randomfactor

    Fisher’s ALWAYS worried that others will treat him the way he would treat them if HE was in charge.

    Some of them have it tattooed on the arm…which is a violation (the tattoo, not the arm) of the OT rules, same book* that says teh gey are bad.

    *I have forgotten which book of the OT, I will not bother to look it up until I have decompressed from the Bryan Fischer stupidity.

    I’m sure that our departed commenter, Don Williams, would blame it on the Mossad.

    @Randomfactor #9 – Exactly. I find it incredibly amusing when people who claim to live by the Golden Rule start pissing and moaning that others are doing unto them as they have done unto others.

    @birgerjohansson #10 – Leviticus 19:28.

    KJV: “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.”

    RSV: “You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh on account of the dead or tattoo any marks upon you: I am the LORD.”

  • matty1

    I wonder if Fischer knows the relevant history.

    we decree that such Jews and Saracens of both sexes in every Christian province and at all times shall be marked off in the eyes of the public from other peoples through the character of their dress Fourth Lateran Council, under Pope Innocent III, 1215

    So, no evidence of ‘homofascists’ forcing people to wear identifying clothing, evidence of Christians doing so. It’s a bit like goldy and bronzey except it’s made out of iron.

    slc1: for ole Don, that would be downright boring. He’s probably still trying to work West Virginia coal-mining interests into it.

  • peterh

    People like Fisher give stupid a bad name. And hate. And bigotry. Actually, Fisher & his ilk personify much that is execrable in human nature.

    Bryan Fischer:

    “we’re getting to the point where these homofascists are going to force us to wear on our sleeve some kind of identifying marker so people will know who the racists and the homophobes and the bigots are.”

    So I take it the racists and homophobes and bigots don’t want to be identified.

    Ed you forget that to people like Bryan Fischer being publically criticized is persecution. So is being called bigots and racists. Whether or not the labels are true is irrelevant it is in their eyes persecution and of course must cease immediately. And of course they will whine that that the people who call them bigots and bigots also because they are allegedly “intolerant” of their bigotry by calling people like Bryan Fischer bigots.

    It is rather amusing that these people seem to have no idea what tolerance is. It not some milk toast acceptance that people can spew hate speech without a single word of condemnation. It is supporting the right of bigoted assholes to say the most hateful crap and still being able to call bigoted assholes bigoted assholes.

    It is funny how Bryan fisher confuse peoples exercise of free speech with persecution.

    Hit post too soon. Interestingly enough, here’s Cynthia McKinney, formerly a Congresscritter from Georgia, opining the inside job theory. Ole Don might actually like this one as McKinney is one of his heroes. He likes to blame the Zionists for her ouster from the Congress.

    Lot’s of the bigots and homophobes already do wear a mark. Proudly. Those little crosses round their necks? Also, “homofascists” is a lovely word for conjuring up BDSM fantasies. Latex SS coat and baton?

    As several people have noted, bigots, racists, and assorted loons, terrorists, and idiots all proudly wear identifying markers.

    They are called crosses and they stick them everywhere.

    The fundie xians own the dark side of our society these days.

  • cheesynougats

    Did Fischer admit that his ilk are “racists, homophobes, and bigots?”

    Also, isn’t Fischer’s fantasy forcing gay people to wear identifying marks (pink triangles, maybe?) so “good people” can avoid them?

  • fastlane

    Dingojack@22: I was thinking more along the lines of this Halloween costume.

    Anyone who can say “homofascist” with a straight face is seriously unhinged.

    Oh, right, Bryan Fischer. Never mind.
