Fischer Calls On U.S. To Pursue ‘A Mass Conversion’ Of Muslims To Christianity
Another day, another dumb-ass remark from Bryan Fischer:
Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association last called for all Muslim immigrants to the U.S. to convert to Christianity, and is now demanding that the U.S. lead a campaign to proselytize all Muslims around the world. According to Fischer, who has prayed for the destruction of mosques and dubbed Muslims a “toxic cancer” to American society, “tyranny is in the DNA of Islam” and the only way for democracy to emerge in a Muslim country is for the U.S. to bring about “a mass conversion of its people to biblical Christianity.” Fischer writes that “we should be sending missionaries in, right after we send in the Marines,” and criticized President Bush for believing that democracy was compatible with Islam, which Fischer says “is for the exact opposite of freedom, totalitarian control”:
It’s long past time to give up our nation-building efforts in Muslim countries. It won’t work, can’t work, and never will work. Islam makes the creation of a democracy an impossibility.
Islam is not about freedom, it is about heavy-handed and punitive control. Domination is at the heart of Islam, making the Muslim faith utterly incompatible with the Judeo-Christian values on which Western civilization has been built.
Freedom is in the DNA of Christianity, but tyranny is in the DNA of Islam.
Islam is grossly and permanently incompatible with the liberty we cherish in the West. And since tyranny is deep in the spirit of Islam, only the Spirit of God can root it out.
The only thing that will give us a shot at building a democracy in an Islamic land is a mass conversion of its people to biblical Christianity. If we want to see freedom come to those darkened, benighted lands, we should be sending missionaries in, right after we send in the Marines to neutralize whatever threat has been raised against the United States.
If they don’t want our missionaries, fine. Their choice. We’ll take them and our Marines home, and let them know we’ll have no hesitation about returning with lethal force if they threaten us again. This time, Marines and missionaries. Next time, Marines and missiles.
The fundamental mistake Western politicians such as George W. Bush make is thinking that Islam is just like Christianity only different. They are so accustomed to an environment shaped by a Christian worldview, which prizes such things as individual liberty, freedom of conscience and religion and equality under the law that they assume that everybody wants those things.
That is a shallow, naive and fatal assumption to make. President Bush simplistically believed that there is a hunger for freedom in every human heart. Not so. There is a hunger for human freedom beating in the breast of Christianity, but the hunger beating in the breast of Islam is for the exact opposite of freedom, totalitarian control.
