Bryan Fischer Wins Reverse Bryan Fischer Award

The Bryan Fischer Award is given to those who show a staggering lack of self-awareness by accusing their opponents of their own worst traits. This time I’m giving a reverse Bryan Fischer award to Bryan Fischer himself for claiming the better traits of his opponents for himself.

“That’s the difference between liberals and conservatives,” he said. “Conservatives believe in live and let live. I may disapprove of your lifestyle, but I’m not going to use force to try and stop you from making those choices. You’re going to have to answer to God, you’ll have to deal with the consequences of your behavior. Liberals are not like that. They want to control every decision that people make. They lust for power and politics is where they find it.”

*headdesk* Yeah, if anyone has a “live and let live” attitude, it’s Bryan Fischer. That’s why he claims that only Christians have religious freedom. And why he wants to ban Muslims from coming to the United States. And says that the Native Americans were justifiably killed because they wouldn’t convert to Christianity. And that gay people should be put in prison. Live and let live, indeed.

    How can someone be this outright evil, and continue to think he’s a good guy? The mind boggles.

  • Pierce R. Butler

    Does this rehcsiF nayrB award cancel out any of the Brian Fischer Awards that Bryan Fischer already won?

  • donkensler

    In which universe do the words “Bryan Fischer” and “live and let live” belong in the same sentence? Because it sure as hell isn’t this one.

  • matty1

    Not only does he not advocate live and let live, I don’t think he even understands the concept. It’s a common flaw in wingnut propaganda the view that everything is either compulsory or forbidden. If you support gay rights you must want everyone to be gay, if you think abortion should be legal you want every pregnancy to be aborted, if you don’t believe in any gods you want to make believing illegal, etc.

    “Conservatives believe in live and let live. I may disapprove of your lifestyle, but I’m not going to use force to try and stop you from making those choices.

    Just like my college dorm, I don’t care what you smoke, who you sleep with or what you drink as long as you are ready for class and clean up after yourself.

    Conservatives support marijuana legalization, sexual liberation and the consuming of drinks with paper umbrellas.

    Fischer when he realizes his argument is totally full of shit: “Oh yeah…..women.”

  • John Pieret

    Conservatives believe in live and let live.

    Because of a typo in his script, he left out a few words: “Conservatives believe in live and let live for other conservative Christians. Everyone else would do well to watch their backs.”

    “I’m not going to use force to try and stop you from making those choices”

    Looks over the long list of psychotic proposals from Adolf Fischsticks. Yeah, bullshit.

    “You’re going to have to answer to God, you’ll have to deal with the consequences of your behavior.”

    You mean I’ll be punished infinitely for finite consequences. Sounds like God’s infinitely against live and let live. What Adolf here means is he hopes to watch us burn for evahs.

    “Liberals are not like that.”

    No, we’re much better than you.

    “They want to control every decision that people make.”

    Nope, Adolf. Only when that decision negatively affects other people, like tax cuts for the rich.

    “They lust for power and politics is where they find it”

    Coming from a dipshit who’s part of a 30-year fundamentalist movement to create a Christian theocracy, that’s rich. Tell me again how putting people in prison for pro-gay speech is “live and let live”

    His audience cheered and said, “Yeah, that’s the one thing we can be really proud of – we live and let live.”

    “When you were young and your heart was an open book,

    You used to say ‘Live and let live….’
