Value Voters Summit: America cannot have a president who endorses the theory of evolution

Bryan Fischer at Value Voters SummitAt the Value Voters Summit held this weekend in Washington, D.C., Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association called for the rejection of evolution by American political leaders because all that secular states "have in common are dead bodies." The conference, featuring GOP presidential candidates, was sponsored by far right Christian groups such as the Family Research Council (and its lobbying arm), the American Family Association, Gary Bauer's "American Values," the Heritage Foundation, Liberty University and Liberty Counsel.

Fischer said that the theory of evolution teaches that humans evolved from slime, baboons and apes.

Right Wing Watch and Bruce Wilson captured Fischer's remarks on video (embedded below):

No matter what you think of the mythical separation between church and state, it is not possible for there ever, in the United States of America, to be a separation between God and government (hooting and clapping) because God is the source of every single right which government has a sacred duty to protect (more clapping and shouting). Now, I submit to you that not a single one of our unalienable rights will be safe in the hands of a president who believes that we evolved from slime and we are the descendants of apes and baboons (shouting and clapping). Now, if you doubt me, look at the nation states in the 20th century which rejected the creator God of the Judeo-Christian tradition – Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, Communist China. The one thing all of these secular states share in common is dead bodies.

    I don't think it is correct to group China in with those other two countries because China has a eastern religion/philosophy. Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russian may have rejected their traditional religion, but China was never Christian in the first place.

      I agree about China. Hitler was quite religious. Nazi Germany had nothing to do with a secular state.

    Notice how conservative Christians always talk about there not being a separation of church and state as long as it's Christianity that's the church in question? These are the same people who are afraid of Muslims institution sharia law and protest every time a mosque is built somewhere in America.

    It's also interesting how Mr. Fischer brings up oppressive fascist regimes, when it's always people like him who want to do the exact same thing.

    This man and any who believe as he does must be barking mad. What on earth is wrong with USA that such twaddle can still be published?

  • Adrian White

    I'm with Ian Norris on this. As a european the right wing of the USA frightens me silly. The distortion of history, your own constitution and the total ignorance of evolution reflects very badly on your education systems.Also isn't the AFA recognised as a hate organisation along the lines of the political systems Fischer condemns?

    • http://www.goddiscussion.com admin

      This is exactly why we report on this stuff so that people know what they are voting in — groups like the AFA are recognized as a hate group (at least in terms of gay rights) but are gaining an increasing amount of political power.

      I find it disturbing that politicians run around like lap dogs, trying to get the approval of these radical right wing Christian groups. But those groups deliver votes.

    For people who claim to love the Constitution so much, these dominionists sure hate the First Amendment. It seems like the only part of the Constitution they accept is the Second Amendment.

    What I like to point out to my neanthertal
    cousin, Brian Fischer is: Dear cousin, it does not really matter whether you believe the fouonder did that or not; the fact is that the believe in the daity is irrational.
    Ande you are totally misinformed about does mass killers of the world, because as a matter of fact at least Hitler started out as a catholic, and the catholic church protected them (all the Nazits) But long before that the deity inventors and believer, the jews committed more genocide and mayhem against other tribes/nations, not only in the name of the god idea, but under the orders of the same. STOP THE IRRATIONALITY, please, and embrace the reasoning of us born-again Athiests.

        Yep, worship the 'sun god' and its mythical Christ and you too can be a bigot, murdering, fascist pagan scumbag forcing their insanity on the sane. Useless heathens that need god forced upon them – it's the 'sun gods' will vs the 'holy chosen' pagan Nazis that must protect their 'god' – the scam that keeps them in power.
