Fox News host Megyn Kelly had Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on her show and criticized him for an absurd plan to ban Muslim immigration. Bryan Fischer joined one of his callers in attacking her and claiming that Satan has blinded her and fooled her into not supporting that plan.
Fischer, a longtime supporter of banning Muslim immigration and requiring immigrants convert to Christianity, said Kelly “simply does not get it with regard to the danger of Islamic immigration.”
When the caller said that Kelly’s refusal to endorse Jindal’s plan is “a product of the judgments and cursings on the land of our inability to connect on things that have to do with our mutual interest and dealing with practical problems in a commonsensical way,” Fischer said that Satan is behind such disagreements because he wants to “supernaturally fool” and “deceive” people.
“He can blind the eyes of people to the plain and honest truth,” Fischer said. “People that are blinded to truth that ought to be evident to them – and we look at them and say, ‘why don’t they see it, how can they not see it’ – well, part of the issue is they are being subject to a blindness and they are not even aware that their eyes have been blinded.”
I gotta get me one of those satan thingies to blame everything on. It’s just so convenient. You don’t have to think at all about any position that disagrees with your own, you just dismiss it as coming from satan and it magically is disproved.
