Interesting point. Now allow me to retort:

Bryan Fischer yesterday decided the government should mandate that all Americans attend church (not temple or any other house of worship) and if they refuse the government should tax them for "endangering their physical health."

Oh, you're making a health care analogy. Well, you see the problem is that health care actually takes care of your health while religion mostly takes care of itself. And I suppose your spiritual health, but you try prayer and I'll try a bone marrow transplant and we'll see which one of us survives the longest, ok?
 
2012-07-06 02:35:22 PM  
I'm pretty sure that's unconstitutional.

Gee, do you think?

I imagine most Christians, hearing this guy say this crap, feel the same way I do when I hear about some atheist guy trying to keep a local business from giving a church-bulletin discount.

Each one of these retarded "analogies" gets more short bus than the last. I thought they topped it with the "make every lib buy a gun for self defense or tax them" idea, but I was wrong. This is dumber.

The obvious intention is to rile liberals with these comparisons, but all it serves to do is prove the point that an insurance mandate is a unique circumstance. Oh, and these people are still whining over their achy butts. That too.

So by all means, keep it up, geniuses.
 
2012-07-06 02:42:12 PM  
Fine, as long as the government can remove the tax exemption afforded houses of worship (churches, synagogues, temples, etc.).
 
2012-07-06 02:45:13 PM  
Damn.. the retard is turned up to 22 today

/that SCOTUS decision really drove these shiatstains right over the edge, didn't it?

We're already subsidizing these non-charitable delusions

unless everyone will consume religion at some point in their lives, and unless this forces the rest of us to subsidize their faith monetarily, then this analogy is just farking stupid.

Since they don't pay taxes, I'd say we already subsidize religion with taxpayer money
 
2012-07-06 02:55:03 PM  
The important thing is that institutions of faith remain exempt

Hey, I've been there. Who hasn't.

But when it happens to me I discretely go home and change, as opposed to parading up and down the street to show it to the world.

Christians fighting people being able to afford health insurance.

Its what Jesus would have wanted.

hillbillypharmacist: Let me recap for the people who don't know who Brian Fisher's dumb ass is.

Kill all bears
Obama wants Indians to be our overlords
Muslims are inbred
Muslims have no 1st Amendment rights
The medal of honor has become 'feminized' because we gave it to someone for a reason other than killing people

Plus plenty more.


That is hilarious. Now I know where Stephen Colbert got that shtick
 
2012-07-06 03:23:01 PM  
Sounds muslimy. And as well all know, muslims are terrorists. So then that makes these guys terrorists. Why do they hate america?
 
2012-07-06 03:23:37 PM  
Did you know you have to pay a tax for being atheist in the middle east as well? So glad the American Family Association is implementing Sharia law!

teto85: Sorry, I'm a founding member of the Church of Monday Night Football, and as such I am immune to religious taxes.


I came here to say something similar...let them have their stupid law, and we atheists will create our own churches to stay in compliance with it. :)

Not worshipping god endangers my PHYSICAL health?

Wow, I want to see that study!

Go and die you farking shriv!! No one but you and a few desparate others want to live in the regressive, stupid, ugly world you would like to be in. You are archaic, ill informed and a pox on forward thinking and progress. Seriously, kill yourself you douchebag!
 
2012-07-06 03:25:18 PM  
It honestly seems like sarcasm to me. He knows forcing people to go to church is illegal, and he thinks that forcing people to get health insurance is illegal as well, so in his mind the two are comparable.

We already do that by subsidizing all the tithes that are received by tax exempt churches. What they don't pay, we have to pay
 
2012-07-06 03:28:42 PM  
It's not often that somebody suggests a policy that would violate both the Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause at the exact same time. Good work, sir! I tip my hat to you.

The article did not state as much, so I am now curious; please identify the nationally known and politically influential organization of which Mr. John Wolff is a public spokesman.
 
2012-07-06 03:32:11 PM  
Of course, lost on Fischer are issues like the separation of church and state, and the fact that just walking into a building labeled a church does not improve anyone's health.

ha!

I had thought that such individuals opposed such behaviour.
