God told me personally that Bryan Fischer is a fuckwad.

See, Fischer, two can play at this game.

"We used to have prayer in schools and we did. not. need. guns." WTF? We don't need guns in school now.

Let me see if I've got this right: Everything bad happens because God is pissed off at us. Yeah, I want to believe in a God like that.

So, God let children die because we hurt he's fee-fees?

If I wasn't an atheist before, this would make me one.

I don't wanna believe in a God who's such a douchebag he'd like innocents die to make a point.

If this is the way Fischer's god expresses his displeasure - by allowing the cold-blooded murder of scores of innocent children - then he is clearly not a god with whom I want anything to do.

It stands to reason that if kids are not praying to Jesus, then they're going to go off half cocked, buy guns and shoot everyone.

By that logic, the millions of children in non-Christian nations like, oh say... Japan, India, China, Indonesia, etc. who don't pray to Jesus should be armed to the teeth and mowing hundreds of other children down every day. Am I right?

"God is not going to go where he's not wanted."

Bryan Fischer will learn that he was, in fact, right when God lets him rot in the ground.

Religion is a mental illness.

Makes one wonder why, if God is such an asshole, this dude is so in love with him. Why, God? Why do your followers love you so much when you are so clearly a ginormously narcissistic, petulant asshole?

Eternal questions are eternal.

According to Wikipedia on school shooting, the first The first known mass shooting in the U.S. where students were shot, was on April 9, 1891, when 70 year old, James Foster fired a shotgun at a group of students in the playground of St. Mary's Parochial School, Newburgh, New York, causing minor injuries to several of the students.

I trust that God was in the fully entrenched in the curriculum at that time.

"Do what I want or I will arrange the brutal, violent murder of your children." Uh, this guy's god is pretty fucking creepy.

Wait wait wait. By rolling back school-mandated prayer, and instead allowing students to independently pray or not as they see fit, we've CURTAILED free exercise of religion?

“I live in the Managerial Age, in a world of "Admin." The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid "dens of crime" that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern."

--CS Lewis, Preface to The Screwtape Letters

Or in this case, the clean, well-lighted offices of the American Family Association.

Fucking god-bothering fool believes prior to 1962 God was protecting the US so tragedies did not happen? Prior to that children didn't die at school or natural disasters didn't cause death? History tells a much different story.

Let's examine a corollary: more guns in church, and concealed automatic weapons for the truly devout. Any takers?

Someday there will be a mass shooting at a Catholic or Baptist or what-have-you school and then what's he gonna say?

Since others have already covered all the points I would make in retort to this monster, I'll just leave the obligatory Epicurus quote:

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?

Prayers don't protect children. People protect children.

I think he has one good idea: forget what the Supreme Court says, but in regard to the 2nd Amendment.

This moron's rant is a complete non-sequitor. There is a massive difference between "god" and "religion". "god" was NOT kicked out of public places - RELIGION was kicked out.

This guy probably has an arsenal in his bunker at home. But no worries, God will protect HIM.
