If it were, its spokesman wouldn’t be cheering death and renouncing mercy, as it has done very recently.
While a divided nation last Tuesday finally rallied around one bright shining moment of patriotic glory — President Obama’s awarding of the Medal of Honor to Afghan hero Army Sgt. Salvatore Giunta — a popular right-wing Christian commentator sharply split opinions even within his own camp. He blasted the award as “feminized” because it honors Giunta for saving his comrades rather than killing the enemy. … “When we think of heroism in battle, we used the think of our boys storming the beaches of Normandy under withering fire, climbing the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc while enemy soldiers fired straight down on them, and tossing grenades into pill boxes to take out gun emplacements,” wrote Fischer, director of issue analysis for the AFA, a longtime lobby on the Christian right. “That kind of heroism has apparently become passé when it comes to awarding the Medal of Honor. We now award it only for preventing casualties, not for inflicting them.” “So the question is this: when are we going to start awarding the Medal of Honor once again for soldiers who kill people and break things, so our families can sleep safely at night?” he asked.
Mr. Bryan Fischer is an evil man who knows nothing, absolutely nothing, about the spirit of Christ or the truth of Christianity. Our soldiers do well to save life, Mr. Fischer, or are you totally bereft of any knowledge of Scripture? Jesus himself asked the Pharisees, ‘is it better to save a life, or take one?’ The answer was so obvious that even they didn’t dispute it.
Mr. Fischer, you are a warmongering death loving disgrace no different than Fred Phelps. And your organization should either fire you or forever be associated with your demonic spirit.
