On Wednesday, the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer read from the grand jury testimony of Officer Darren Wilson of the Ferguson, Missouri Police Department and concluded that “chances are very good” that the unarmed teenager was possessed by a “homicidal demon.”
Right Wing Watch reported that Fischer made the remarks during his daily radio broadcast.
Fischer — whose organization has been deemed a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center — quoted Wilson’s testimony, “The only way I can describe it, it looks like a demon, that’s how angry he looked.”
“I think the chances are very good,” Fischer said, that Wilson actually was looking into the eyes of a demon.
“I think at this point that there was a demonic presence that was operating inside Michael Brown’s body,” the pastor continued, “activating him, energizing him, driving him forward in this homicidal rage. So when he says he looked like a demon, I think that’s because he was looking into the eyes of a demon that was driving Michael Brown to do what he did.”

GOP lawmaker ducks question after Yovanovitch asks why it was necessary to smear her reputation
Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) on Friday got more than he bargained for while questioning former American ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.
Toward the end of his questioning, Wenstrup argued that President Donald Trump has the power to hire and dismiss ambassadors as he sees fit in order to enact his preferred foreign policy.
"The president has the right to make their own foreign policy and to make his own decisions, and with that I yield back," he said.
Yovanovitch, however, was unwilling to let it end there and she asked to supplement her testimony.
"While I obviously don't dispute that the president has the right to withdraw an ambassador at any time for any reason, but what I do wonder is why it was necessary to smear my reputation?" she asked Wenstrup.
‘Everyone he touches gets tainted’: CNN panel astonished by number of criminally convicted Trump allies
A CNN panel on Friday stood in awe at the number of President Donald Trump's allies who have been convicted of crimes ever since his election in 2016.
During a panel discussion about Trump ally Roger Stone's conviction on seven criminal counts that included witness intimidation, perjury, and obstruction of justice, CNN host Anderson Cooper said it was astonishing how many of the people who helped the president get elected have wound up in jail.
"In your own life, how many people are you close to in your orbit who have been convicted of crimes?" Cooper asked and then listed off former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, and former personal attorney Michael Cohen.
Marie Yovanovitch made a ‘mockery’ of Trump’s dismissal of the ‘deep state’ with her testimony: CNN’s David Gregory
CNN contributor David Gregory used his time during a panel segment on the impeachment testimony of Marie Yovanovitch to hammer President Donald Trump for attacking the diplomat on Twitter as she spoke -- then said she had made a "mockery" of his [Trump's] dismissal of the "deep state."
According to Gregory, viewers might think he was naive to believe the president would not get personal and go after Yovanovitch, but that he was honestly stunned.
