There’s a bit of a flap over Bryan Fisher, spokesman for the American Family Association, and his guest Calvin Beisner, a climate change denialist, arguing that not using fossil fuels is an insult to God:
Fischer likened the situation to a birthday present he was given at the age of six.
“I opened up a birthday present that I didn’t like, and I said it right out, ‘Oh, I don’t like those,’” the radio host recalled. “And it just crushed — and the person that gave me gift was there. You know, I just kind of blurted it out, ‘I don’t like those.’ And it just crushed that person. It was enormously insensitive of me to do that.”
“And you think, that’s kind of how we’re treating God when he’s given us these gifts of abundant and inexpensive and effective fuel sources,” Fischer added. “And we don’t thank him for it and we don’t use it.”
I find it very amusing that Bill Hicks used to say the same things about pot and other drugs:
“To make marijuana against the law is like saying that God made a mistake.”
