Secular Hotline Project met its fundraising goal. Bryan Fischer is wrong again.

You’d think the people who claim to be taking their policies and claims straight from the maw of the almighty wouldn’t be wrong so freaking often.  Two weeks ago, when the Secular Hotline Project had raised $1,700 on the way to its $30,000 goal, Bryan Fischer said:

When asked by CP if he felt the atheist group would reach their fundraising goal, Fischer replied that “this effort is doomed to fail.”

And yet it didn’t even take two weeks to raise the money for this amazing project.  Whoops!  Pro tip: if you’re ever looking for advice on investing, ask your corgi before you ask Bryan Fischer.

“The whole computer thing is just a fad. Nobody’s going to throw their money into that pit. Invest in squirrels.”

To Bryan Fischer the idea that people would be so compassionate as to place financial value on soothing the psychological torment that so often accompanies leaving the faith in which a person was raised is less believable than tales of a man rising from the dead.  Even to an avowed cynic like me, that’s pretty fucking sad.
