Bryan Fischer suggests his god runs a protection racket. Picture credit: tumblr.com
“Hey, I’ll be glad to protect your children, but you gotta invite me back into your world first.”
It’s really a pretty terrifying concept. And it is, by definition, extortion. Jesus, who holds all the cards by virtue of creating everything and having absolute power over everything, will let children be senselessly murdered if we don’t pray in school every morning. It’s extortion, pure and simple, and what’s worse, there’s pretty good historical evidence that even when there is lots of prayer, God falls down on the job of protection. An awful lot of children have been raped in churches by his own clerics.
