Last summer, the American Family Association's director Bryan Fischer was telling his radio listeners that they and every American had a "patriotic duty to worship God." Fisher started off the new year by sharing some of his thoughts on who should be qualified to hold political office in the United States.
Bryan Fischer returned to his radio broadcast today where he dedicated his first topic segment to explaining that no person who believes in evolution ought to ever be elected to public office.
"We don't share ancestors with apes and baboons," he proclaimed. "In fact, I would suggest to you that if a politician, if somebody wants to exercise political power and he is an evolutionist, he is disqualified from holding political office in the United States of America."
Fischer went on to clarify that he doesn't think there ought to be a law banning people who believe in evolution from holding office, merely that "that American people shouldn't vote for them because that guy, if he does not believe that we are created beings and that our rights come to us from God, that man cannot be trusted to protect your civil rights":
Personally, I think listening to Fischer and his ilk ought to be a disqualifier. Sadly, he fits right in with the better part of the Republican party these days.
