Radio Host Wants To Require All Immigrants to Convert to Christianity
Radio host Bryan Fischer took on the immigration issue on his show on Monday, calling for the United States to mandate that all immigrants convert to Christianity. You know, like the Founding Fathers intended.
If we “did immigration God’s way,” Fischer said, “those who come to our shores would be expected to adopt our religious values and traditions – that would mean Christianity and not Islam – and they would leave behind their religion and their god.”
So not exactly “God’s way,” just Fischer’s God’s, which is apparently different from the Muslim god. Somehow.
“That would mean leaving behind Islam and Allah,” Fischer continued, adding that adopting their new Judeo-Christian values means Muslims can no longer complain about the consumption of bacon and the inability to obtain Halal foods.
“If this were to happen, we would have one god, we would have one law, we would have one culture, and we would have one language,” Fischer said.
Ironically, Fischer has attempted to push this idea in the past but his employer, the American Family Association, pulled his column and made him rewrite it to say the opposite of what he wrote.
In his original take, Fischer had written, “Allowing Muslims to immigrate into the United States, a Christian nation by origin, history and tradition, without insisting that they drop their allegiance to Allah, Muhammad, the Qur’an, and sharia law, is to commit cultural suicide. We believe in freedom of religion for Muslims like we do for everybody else. But if they insist on clinging to their religion, they will need to exercise their freedom of religion in a Muslim country which shares their values: death for those who leave Islam, the beating of wives by their husbands, and the labeling of Jews as apes and pigs.
“Immigration is a privilege, not a right, and our policy should be to admit to our shores only those with a commitment to a full assimilation to American culture, adopting our faith, our heroes, and our history. Someone with a Muslim background who wants to become an American had best be prepared to drop his Islam and his Qur’an at Ellis Island.”
