Bryan Fischer Rejects Constitution – Says Evolutionists Disqualified from Political Office

Published by

Bryan Fischer, the American Family Association’s Director of Issues Analysis who doesn’t understand much about the issues, has, in a less than happy New Year’s message, made it clear what he thinks about the United States Constitution and its Article VI regarding religious tests.

While Article VI of the Constitution says “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States,” Fischer, whose buddy David Barton has previously insisted the Founding Fathers “settled the evolution debate,” proclaimed Thursday that people who believe in evolution are “disqualified from holding political office in the United States of America.”

Watch courtesy of Right Wing Watch:

Our Founders obviously believed in a creator. They believed the universe was created. They believed that man is a created being, not an evolved being, didn’t rise out of the swamp somewhere, didn’t emerge out of the slime.

We don’t share ancestors with apes and baboons. In fact, I would suggest to you that if a politician or somebody wants to exercise political power and he is an evolutionist, he is disqualified from holding political office in the United States of America. because he does not share the political worldview that established the United States of America and made it the greatest nation in the history of the planet.

Yes, even the 18th century’s deists believed in a creator but their creator was not Fischer’s creator. They did not believe in the Bible’s mystical elements, the miracles, rising from the dead, or in salvation through Jesus Christ. At the very least, Fischer’s argument is disingenuous; at the worst, blatantly dishonest.

But then Fischer IS, like 2016 presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee, Michele Bachmann, and others, a huge David Barton fan. ‘Nuff said, on why this matters.

Fischer went on to claim he is not going so far as to suggest we have an actual law to enforce that ban:

I’m not saying we should have a law prohibiting them from running for public office. I’m not saying that. I’m saying that American people shouldn’t vote for them because that guy, if he does not believe that we are created beings and that our rights come to us from God, that man cannot be trusted to protect your civil rights.

Obviously, Fischer has not bothered to read the Constitution or the Bible, a far too common failing of religious bigots (i.e. fake Christians like Fischer) in our society. He claims his reasoning is based on the fact that an evolutionist “does not share the political worldview that established the United States of America,” except for one rather LARGE problem:

It was the political worldview in question that gave us Article VI’s rejection of the religious test Fischer wishes to see exercised by the electorate. This is rather interesting because Fischer is a Barton apologist and Barton says Thomas Jefferson would side with them today, yet it was Jefferson who wrote, “But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.”

Thomas Jefferson gave us the true face of religious freedom; Bryan Fischer is its antithesis; he would take that freedom away.

We have seen what rights people like Fischer are willing to grant us and they are few unless you are, like him, an anti-American white guy: For example, the First Amendment, in Fischer’s eyes, not only applies ONLY to Christians but it establishes Christianity as the state religion the First Amendment bans. Worse yet, Fischer believes that Muslims are “parasites” who “must convert or die.”

Fischer has previously said that liberals hate America and Christianity. Liberals love liberty and so hate those who, like Fischer, threaten liberty. The Constitution liberals protect is itself a liberal document, a product of the very secular, very liberal European Enlightenment. Fischer says that you cannot reason with liberals because “God gave them deranged minds” but it seems beyond contestation that while liberals use their minds, Fischer does not use his.

I would therefore like to suggest – and I’m going to go ahead and run it up the flagpole here – that if anybody should not be allowed to hold political office, it is religious bigots like Bryan Fischer who refuse to read the Bible they claim to promote and then compound that sin by refusing to read the Constitution they claim to be defending. I would like to further suggest that if they don’t like the United States Constitution, they can pack up their sick obsessions and leave. There are planes leaving every hour.
