The Bryan Fischer Award is given to those who display a staggering lack of self-awareness, accusing their opponents of their own worst deeds. Since this is an almost ubiquitous behavior from the Christian right, it isn’t hard to find examples. Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center displays it in his response to Bill Maher saying that the God of the Bible is a “psychotic mass murderer.”
Years ago, Maher was actually funny, says Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture for the Media Research Center.
“His whole shtick now is to simply offend more this time than he did last time, because that gets him attention and gets people talking about him on radio and TV,” says the MRC spokesman.
Gainor advises it is important to pay attention to what the Left says because it explains a general worldview.
Gainor, Dan (MRC)”There is such a sweeping tide of anti-religious and particularly anti-Christian sentiment among the Left,” he says, singling out writers at far-left websites Huffington Post, Daily Kos, and Democratic Underground.The hatred for Christians is so strong, claims Gainor, that he believes the Far Left would “kick us out of the country, lock us up, or shoot us,” if it could.
Really, Dan? Let’s take a look at history. Which group is demanding the right to lock up those they think are “sinners,” like gay people? You and your Christian right buddies. Should I show you the video of Bryan Fischer repeatedly saying that we should ban the building of mosques and throw Muslims out of the country? Or John Hagee repeatedly telling atheists to get out of the country? Or Peter Sprigg saying we should throw gay people out of the country? Psychological projection FTW.
Have you noticed that in all the furor over Bill Maher’s comments, no one has actually disputed their accuracy? He was discussing the Biblical flood story, where God drowns everyone on earth other than 8 people along with virtually all the animals as well. How could that be anything but the behavior of a psychotic mass murderer?
