Bryan Fischer continues to be either completely oblivious to his own contradictions or he’s just plain lying and knows his audience won’t catch him at it when it comes to how to interpret the First Amendment. Ranting about last week’s ruling that a huge cross on public property in Maryland is unconstitutional, he says:

To call Bryan Fischer’s understanding of constitutional law incoherent would be the understatement of the decade. He takes completely contradictory positions on the First Amendment and has no idea what “legislative power” is or what jurisdiction the courts have. Case in point in a column endorsing Christian fascist Roy Moore over Luther Strange:

Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association — as always, “family” means “we hate gay people” — says that if they’re going to remove the Confederate flag from public spaces, they should also ban the LGBT rainbow flag too. Because it’s “divisive.”

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything about Bryan Fischer, but I’m happy to report that he’s still a big steaming pile of stupid. He says God is getting ready to make the land “vomit us out” because we treat women and gay people like actual human beings, in clear violation of the Bible. (more…)
Bryan Fischer has a long history of contradicting himself on the meaning of the First Amendment religion clauses. If it involves an establishment clause claim, the First Amendment applies only to Congress; when it involves a free exercise claim, it applies to the states. Shall we see what’s behind door #3?
Wingnut extraordinaire Bryan Fischer once again puts his ignorance and hypocrisy on display by urging Trump to defy the federal judge in Hawaii who issued an injunction preventing enforcement of the Muslim ban 2.0. He seems to have no idea how the courts actually work.

I find declarations like this endlessly amusing. Bryan Fischer says that Christians have to surround Donald Trump with a holy prayer shield because “witches” are casting spells and therefore “throwing the very demons of hell” at him.

Bryan Fischer is quite upset with Donald Trump for deciding not to rescind Obama’s executive order that forbids anti-LGBT discrimination by federal contractors. To hear Fischer tell it, this is discrimination against Christians on a massive scale.

We have another missive from the bizarro world that Bryan Ficher lives in. This time he is declaring that the United States should bomb Muslim countries because that’s the only way to show them that we love them and push them into the arms of Jesus.

Weapons-grade moron Bryan Fischer has a message for people like me and all other secularists who want a strict separation of church and state. Anyone who opposes the public posting of the Ten Commandments, he says, is a traitor to the United States.

The Christian right’s rhetoric about gay rights being “special rights” has always been incoherent and hypocritical. Bryan Fischer’s use of the term continues that tradition as he claims that unisex bathrooms with stalls are “special rights” for trans people.
