Occupy Wall Street, the ongoing series of demonstrations protesting social and economic inequality, corporate greed, corruption and influence over government which, in just over a month, has spread from Zucotti Park in New York to over 900 cities all over the world, has picked up a few enemies along the way. And these enemies are not only banks, financial corporations, lobbyists and Tea Party conservatives; they also include Jesus...
At least according to a number of leaders on the religious right.
That Fischer guy seems to know the mind of Jesus alright - it's almost as if they're identical twins, he's so certain he knows just what Jesus would and wouldn't have any truck with.
Of course everything he says is complete bullshit, but what really blew my mind was this pearl of wisdom:
God says, “Thou shalt not covet...any thing that is thy neighbor’s.” And yet the Occupiers are driven by a dark, bitter, resentful, angry and acquisitive greed for stuff that belongs to other people.
Thanks for the link Mick.
"Fuck you, Bryan Fischer. You're a gigantic piece of shit, and I'll be glad when you're fucking dead."
I've never come across this Fischer guy before, but I think this just about sums up my own feelings after reading the shit that comes out of his mouth. He'll be no loss to the world.
Isn't this more of the same... didn't we do this once every 10 years since Moses was a boy?
