Update! AFA Blogger Still Knows Jesus Wanted That House To Burn Down

News

American Family Association blogger Bryan Fischersaid a couple days back that firefighters in Tennessee letting that house burn down was the "Christian thing" to do, and after we picked it up and it spread across the Internets, it turns out a lot of people, Christian and non-Christian, thought he was quite incorrect about that! But Fischer has come back on the blog (in WHITE text) to refute his communist critics, because he is CERTAIN Jesus likes to see His children suffer to make a point about government expenditure. "It’s frankly odd to see the Christian community blame the fire department for something that was somebody else's fault. I'm used to hearing that from liberals, socialists, and Marxists, but not from followers of Christ." This guy is the best!


The left, of course, has grabbed the "What would Jesus do?" mantra - as if they really cared about anything Jesus would do - and used that as a cudgel. Friends in the faith community have likewise taken aim, saying that they too know what Jesus would do.

These people are idiots. Non-Christians put Jesus on the cross, and Christians need to read between the lines in their Bibles and discover it's actually just an older version of Atlas Shrugged. Jesus does not have compassion! He is a cold, calculating proponent of personal responsibility. DUH.

It's a strange thing to hear evangelicals saying we ought to take resources without permission from responsible citizens (the ones who had been faithfully paying their fire protection premiums) and use them to bail out the irresponsible ones.

Yes, it is strange to hear evangelicals giving a cogent argument. By the way, Fischer, this fire department could have perhaps just charged the guy for their cost to save his house after the fact. But no, you're right, watching his house and pets be destroyed to make some Aesop-fable point is what Jesus would have wanted.

And once again, Fischer knows for sure what Jesus would have done if he was wearing a firefighter costume standing by that burning house, and it's not firefighter cosplay:

Well, as long as we're speculating on what Jesus would do in this situation, I’m as entitled as anyone.

What would Jesus do? That’s easy. He'd tell Mr. Cranick, "Man up, accept full and total responsibility, and don't blame anybody but yourself for what happened. That’s the Christian thing to do. And next time, Gene, pay the 75 bucks, all right?"

"Man up!" That's right! That is Jesus' favorite catch-phrase! "Lo, bros, when I see the most needy, I tell them to man up and have some personal responsibility. If you tell this to the needy too, you are serving me."

Your Lutheran-raised afternoon editor seems to remember something about a prodigal son and a son who was responsible. The point of that was that Jesus hated people who weren't careful about paying their firefighter fees, right? Those people should be banished, right? God does not love, and He does not forgive.

Gonna be a long day, y'all, you ready to dive in? We should note at the outset that any of the questions about obstruction of justice are colored by the fact that Trump refused to sit for an interview with Robert Mueller. Guess that's part of why Robert Mueller refused to clear him! But anyway, we will have more time for thoughts as we read.

Let's read the Mueller Report!

April 20 will be the 20th anniversary of the massacre at Columbine High School. Mother Jones yesterday published a report on mass shooters (or would-be shooters) who in one way or another mentioned the Columbine murders as something they wanted to emulate, or as a benchmark they hoped to outdo. Since 1999, there have been more than 100 plots or actual attacks influenced by Columbine. MoJo national affairs editor Mark Follman notes,

And those are just the cases for which there is some kind of public record: In talking with law enforcement and mental health sources who work to prevent such attacks, I've learned of dozens more Columbine-influenced threats that never made the news.
