Bryan Fischer once again shows his theocratic bonafides by arguing on his radio show that gay marriage can’t be legal because the government is a “minister of God” and therefore can’t do anything that is contradictory with anything in the Bible.
As Fischer explained, the entire idea of civil government came from God and therefore all earthly political and legal authority stems from God. As such, the purpose of civil government is to carry out the will of God, meaning that government can never remain neutral on moral issues.
“God has called government to take sides in the culture war,” Fischer said, “and God is instructing civil government to take the side of that which is right and good. That means government and those who hold government power have a divine responsibility to know the difference between good and evil so that they can reward the former and punish the latter.”Thus, when government bans gay marriage, “it is doing a good thing,” Fischer said. “It is doing a divinely ordained thing. It’s doing its job. It’s fulfilling its role as a minister of God.”
Wouldn’t that make the Constitution he claims to revere so much an anti-Christian document? After all, it bans religious tests and allows other religions to have religious freedom. It doesn’t allow women to be stoned to death and it actually allows people to do ungodly things like worship other gods and work on Sunday. Yep, it would. But we can’t expect a clueless dolt like Fischer to recognize his own contradictions.
