AFA's Bryan Fischer: Satan comes out to play during the full moon

As he traditionally does, Bryan Fischer began his program yesterday with a reading and discussion from the Bible. In this case, it was a passage from the Book of Mark in which Jesus heals a boy traditionally believed to be suffering from epilepsy:

A man in the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not.”

That prompted Fischer to comment on the superstitious belief that mental health problems are tied to the presence of a full moon which because "that is the time, for some reason, that Satan chooses to activate his influence and control over people."

Next up: Are comets the sign of the impending apocalypse and will you fall off of the world if you journey past the horizon?

2. Good Grief. When Will We Let These Backwards Myths and Superstitions Go?

Fischer would probably have been right there throwing gas on the woman who was recently burned alive in Papua New Guinea. She was allegedly a witch and allegedly killed a boy using sorcery. According to USA Today: "She was tortured with a hot iron rod, bound, doused in gasoline, then set alight on a pile of car tires and trash..."
