American Family Association radio host Bryan Fischer confirmed Democrats’ worst fears on Wednesday, insisting that standing for equal rights is so evil that America risks “God’s judgement” if it doesn’t join Republicans in their push for a return “to the dawn of creation” when it comes to women’s health care.
Fischer was reacting to an honest-to-goodness mini-scandal in the Christian blogs that chastises Democrats for using “luceiferian” colors at the DNC and complains about the president’s use of a black-and-white television to help illustrate that Republicans want to ban birth control and abortion by going back to 1950-era policies.
“You know, Barack Obama is out there, or the Democrats are out there, saying we want to go back, the Republicans want to take us back to the days of black and white TV,” Fischer said on Wednesday’s radio broadcast. “And I say no. We’re going way, way, way back further than that. We are going all the way back to the dawn of creation.”
He went on, apparently quite serious: “God is the one who created us male and female; God is the one who formed marriage, who created marriage, who designed it to be a union of one man and one woman for life. So we’re going way past the 1950s; we’re going clear back to the Garden of Eden.”
While that’s not exactly in the Republican Party’s platform, conservatives like Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) have been adamant about wanting to ban all abortions and even most forms of birth control by declaring fertilized embryos “people.”
