Moron of the Day: Aurora Shooting Was Liberals' Fault

Bryan Fischer: Liberals are to blame and other bullshit.
Bryan Fischer of The American Family Association, a right-wing blabbermouth organization that seems to blame everything negative in the world on liberals, is at it again.

This time Fischer says that because we don't have prayer in school, a lot of people lost their lives to a gun-toting nutjob, whose action has spurred an outcry from right-wing gun owners who insist that the killer was well within his rights to have automatic weapons and a houseful of ammunition that included hand grenades.

Here's what Fischer said, according to the Huffington Post, "We have spent 60 years telling God to get lost. What if every single day in [alleged Aurora shooter James Holmes'] educational process, there had been readings from the word of God ... Who knows if things could have been different? But we’ve tried it the other way. The point of my column, we’ve tried it the liberals’ way for 60 years now. What do we got? We have massacres in Aurora.”

We've tried it the conservatives' way with a misinterpretation of the Second Amendment for more than 200 years. We might want to consider putting our guns and ammo under lock and key for a while and give that idea a shot, so to speak.

Nobody in this country has ever even remotely banned god from classrooms. What was banned was organized, out-loud prayer that forces students to conform and goes against the Biblical teaching of that in Mark 6:5-5 ("And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others"). God and prayer are welcome anywhere people have god in their hearts. You don't have to make a public spectacle of god in order to be godly and prayerful.



  1. So when the CHristians who arrived on the shores of South and North America came and purposefully massacred millions of indigenous people THAT was sane and done in the name of GOD/?

  2. May 18, 1927, long before the Supreme Court became involved in the argument over school prayer, three bombings killed 38 elementary school children, two teachers, four other adults and the bomber himself; at least 58 people were injured. The bomber was school board treasurer who was enraged about property taxes.
