Bryan Fischer: ‘Enormously insensitive’ to hurt God’s feelings by not using oil

"SNIP..............................................

Bryan Fischer, the director of issues analysis of the conservative fundamentalist American Family Association, on Thursday told a so-called “expert” who denies climate change that not using God’s fossil fuels would be like “crushing” someone’s feelings by rejecting their birthday present.

The Cornwall Alliance’s Calvin Beisner, who has previously said that believing in climate change “is an insult to God,” explained on Thursday that the Bible said it was also very rude to not use oil, coal and natural gas.

“The wicked and lazy master was the one who buried his talent in the ground and didn’t do anything to multiply it,” Beisner explained. “That’s essentially what those who say we need to stop using oil, coal and natural gas are telling us to do. Just leave those resources buried in the ground, rather than pulling them out and multiplying their value for human benefit.”

3. I surely do not have the hot line to God like Mr. Fisher does but ....

maybe Mr. Fisher is wrong and God's plan all along was get rid of pesky man by letting him kill himself with fossil fuel and then start anew. It might take a few billion years but hey, God was in no hurry the last time she allowed evolution get to the point it's at now. Why not start over and see what evolves in the next few billion.

7. I was thinking maybe he was looking for a new argument for the climate

change deniers. Because Hurricane Sandy has ginned up the debate on the part of environmentalists. And who is the only entity big enough to take on a 800 mile wide hurricane? Why God of course.

5. Is this the same God that bathes us in countless photons?

And they just hit the ground unused.
