The director of issues analysis of the fundamentalist American Family Association (AFA) told his radio listeners that they and every American had a "patriotic duty to worship God."

On his Wednesday radio show, Fischer read from the Old Testament Book of Haggai to explain why the U.S. economy was "in a slump."

"If you want a prosperous economy, you've got to have a vibrant spirituality," he said. "When you worship God, you are not just doing the right thing in terms of your relationship with God, you are doing your patriotic duty."

"It is your patriotic duty to worship God in order that we have a prosperous and flourishing economy," Fisher added.
