It’s been a while since I mentioned our old friend Bryan Fischer, one of the goofiest and most irrational of all the Christian Right leaders. But he’s busy right now, you see, waging “major league spiritual warfare” over the “demons from hell” trying to stop the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
“This is the biggest conflict between good and evil that we have seen in the last year,” Fischer declared. “This is big league spiritual warfare. This is major league spiritual warfare. This is Satan and the demons of hell coming against one man because he stands for what is right and stands for what is true. And all the forces of hell are arranged against him and we, ladies and gentlemen, have to stand in the gap for Brett Kavanaugh.”
“We say to Satan, ‘Satan, if you’re going to get to Brett Kavanaugh, you are going to have to go through us, because we are standing firm in the strength and the power of the Lord,’” he added. “There is a prize here, and that’s the placement of Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. That is what Satan does not want to see happen. He’s using every trick that he has in his arsenal to fight that, to keep that from happening. That is his holy grail right now, to stop Brett Kavanaugh from being seated on the Supreme Court because Brett Kavanaugh represents such a threat to his agenda: to use the Supreme Court to advance a regressive, backwards, anti-biblical, anti-Christian, anti-American point of view. He’s had control of the Supreme Court now in every meaningful way since the 1960s, he’s not going to let go of that without a fight.”“We are the warriors that God has alerted and God has called us to stand in the gap for [Kavanaugh],” Fischer said. “Evil is pouring through this gap, targeted at Brett Kavanaugh; we’re there to stand in the gap and provide a wall of protection in the spirit for the demonic forces that are coming after him.”
I’m dying to know what separates minor league spiritual warfare from major league spiritual warfare. If you mumble a bunch of nonsense to the sky really loudly, is that what makes it “major league”? Is there a higher batting average involved? Do you get to ride on a plane instead of a bus? Will the highlights be on Sportscenter?
