Reacting to the gruesome beheading of someone in Oklahoma by a co-worker, Bryan Fischer found a way to link it to the recent satanic black mass held in Oklahoma City. He doesn’t have an actual argument to make for this causation, of course, just a tired cliche about hell breaking loose.
“Remember that it was in Oklahoma City where the city fathers said ‘you can have your Satanic ritual in the heart of our city,'” Fischer said. “And then literally, I mean this literally, ladies and gentlemen, all Hell has broken loose in the state of Oklahoma. Oklahoma City allows a Satanic ritual and all of a sudden, we start hearing about people having their head cut off in the name of the demon god Allah. Just a coincidence? I’ll leave it up to you to make up your own mind.”
It’s amazing how such “coincidences” can always be blamed. No matter where something bad happens, it’s trivially easy to find something that happened previously that one disagreed with and make the lame post hoc argument. That’s why people like Fischer can blame a hurricane on a gay pride parade rather than on meteorological factors.
