What's really frightening is that there apparently are people out there who take this guy seriously rather than being viewed as some insane carnival barker who ought to be run out of town on a rail: Fischer: Fiscal Cliff Legislation is 'Demonic':

Bryan Fischer is not at all pleased with the legislation passed last night by the House of Representatives in an effort to avoid the "fiscal cliff, "declaring that it is a violation of the Ten Commandments' prohibition on covetousness, meaning that the Democratic Party is driven by a "Satanic" ideology and the resulting legislation is "demonic."

So much for that talk about it being harder for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven than that camel going through the eye of a needle. Those greedy poor people out there are the evil ones for coveting what that rich man has by wanting him to pay his fair share of taxes.

As Steve Benen noted on this:

There was no word from Fischer as to why Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) would help craft a "demonic" fiscal agreement -- or for that matter, why 125 congressional Republicans voted for it.
