Bryan Fischer thinks only people who own property should Be able to vote
Once again he shows us how “pro liberty” he really is!
Contrary to everything Fischer said, not owning property, doesn’t mean you don’t have a vested interest in your community. Just because I don’t own the place where I live, doesn’t mean that I don’t have to worry about issues like crime, pollution or the quality of the local schools. There are families who live in apartments in the middle of the city, that they rent, and never buy. Also not owning land or property, doesn’t mean you don’t have an interest in the outcome of national elections as well. In fact every single person who lives in the US has an interest in the outcome of our elections. For that reason along, ever single citizen, who is old enough, and isn’t a felon should be able to vote in our elections. Making it so only people who own property could vote, would pretty much mean that if you were simply poor and trying to make ends meet, most likely you couldn’t vote. That would be incredibly unfair, not to mention unjust, to say the least.
I don’t know what pathetic response Bryan would have if I were to point out these facts to him.
However, This should be no surprise coming from someone who thinks only creationists are qualified to hold public office. And by creationist, I’m certain he means only Christian creationists, since he thinks that the first amendment doesn’t and shouldn’t apply to non Christians. So it wouldn’t just be any religion’s ignorant science deniers, but only the “true” religion’s ignorant science deniers.
Tell me Bryan, in addition to opposing genuine religious liberty, how much do you oppose women’s equality and racial equality? I mean, it wasn’t just land owners who the founding fathers initially intended to be the only one’s who could vote. Originally it was only white male land owners.
Do you think that we should get rid of the 15th and 19th amendments as well?
