Bryan Fischer yesterday called on Republican Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant to use the National Guard to surround Mississippi schools to ensure school prayer is protected and defended. Fischer, the public face of the certified anti-gay hate group, American Family Association, has succeeded in his U.S. Constitution trampling, invoking state and federal assets to marshal a conjoined mandatory church and state theocracy.
When will these wingnuts be denounced by mainstream religious leaders whose name and faith they are desecrating?
Kyle Mantyla at Right Wing Watch adds:
Bryan Fischer took some time away from his one mancrusade to defend Todd Akin and “modern science” to discuss a decision by a Mississippi school board to end the practice of delivering prayers over the public address system before football games and other school functions after receiving a letter from the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF).
And even though this particular case never went to court, Fischer went on to claim that the school board should simply declare that it was going to ignore any ruling banning prayer and continue the practice while the governor of the state should be willing to send in the National Guard to surround the press box and arrest anyone who tries to stop them from delivering such prayers.
