Prominent fundamentalist: God gets sad when we donít use the oil He gave us


from Grist:



Prominent fundamentalist: God gets sad when we donít use the oil He gave us
By Philip Bump



Bryan Fischer, ranting about something.


Bryan Fischer runs the American Family Association. He is Ö a piece of work. He spends most of his time bashing homosexuals, but is not afraid to dip a poison-soaked toe into the broader waters of far-right conservatism. Some tweets of his, to set context:

According to CDC, 90% of all malesever diagnosed w/ HIV/AIDS got it either through male on male sex or IV drug use.

LA mandates condoms for gay porn for health reasons. Should mandate for all gay sex, since want to protect health of all.

My game-day prediction: Romney, 51-48, 300+ electoral votes, looting.

Charming. That last one, though, gets to the point of this story, why weíre bothering to write anything about him. Fischer is also a climate change denier. And on his radio show today (he has a radio show, apparently), he suggested that failing to use fossil fuels was an insult to God. .....................(more)

3. That man shouldn't be allowed to zip his own pants,

he's a danger to himself and society, what a maroon.

Thanks for the thread, marmar.

4. Why did he put it in such hard to access places, like the bottom of the ocean?

It's like me getting you a birthday gift and burying it 50 feet down in your backyard.

5. I heard one of those guys say fossil fuels aren't really fossil fuels. That would,

I hate to even use the term, make sense. To those guys anyway. Oil would have to be something just created for us by God to eventually discover how to use. Makes you wonder why God wouldn't just give us stuff that would run without us having to go to all the trouble?

7. God probably gets even sadder that we don't....

use solar, wind, tidal, etc. clean sources of power that don't turn "his" creation into a toxic dump.

8. God told me to ignore people who act as spokesman for God.

Maybe it was just a voice inside my brain.
Wait. God made my brain. If there's a voice inside my brain, who else could it be?

9. The very fact that gawd has not

taken this asshole back into his loving arms (or whatever) is an insult to me.

11. Your God is bloodthirsty and oil is the Earth's blood

so I believe this is what you believe, Bryan.

Wouldn't a true God (if one exists) be happier (if measuring such is possible) if we could effectively utilize Earth's most abundant, free renewable energy source - the Sun?

In truth, Bryan, you know this is the case, but you are either a paid slave, or you are an ignorant slave. A slave nonetheless.

12. Beware of wolves in sheep's clothing, came to mind when I read the headline.

And "Judge the tree by the fruit it bears" is another. I can't stand these Jim Jones fanatics. Haven't these people learned from history? American history is rife with these "wolves in sheep's clothing", yet I see, time and time again, how more of them pop out of nowhere and go ballistic on their followers and this country as if it's some new thing. Jesus! Some even got into our U.S. Congress!

15. Maybe they should hold church services on an offshore rig

Or spend a few days or move to the oil patch in South Texas.

The South Texas oil patch is a pretty disgusting place with few amenities and plenty of vices.

16. He also thinks God is sad because we don't eat all the endangered animals.


God is insulted because they all taste like chicken.

Only God and Bryan Fischer know this now.

Bryan Fischer will tell us as soon as God says it's OK to tell.
