Bryan Fischer is no stranger to staggeringly stupid arguments but this one may take the cake. On his radio show this week he claimed that the fact that we sell bacon in the United States is proof that we are officially a Christian nation. Seriously.
“You want one single item of proof that America is a Christian nation and not a Jewish nation and not an Islamic nation?” he asked. “One single bit of proof is all you need: we freely allow restaurants and grocery stores to sell and to serve bacon. That can only happen in a Christian country.”
“So the sheer fact that we freely allow the sale and consumption of bacon,” he continued, “is absolute proof that we are, in fact, a Christian nation.”
And by “absolute proof” he means…oh, who the fuck knows what he means. He certainly doesn’t.
