I think it’s fair, based on Bryan Fischer’s latest piece, to go ahead and label him a White Supremacist.

In all the discussions about the European settlement of the New World, one feature has been conspicuously absent: the role that the superstition, savagery and sexual immorality of native Americans played in making them morally disqualified from sovereign control of American soil.

Bryan Fischer got up and said, “I’ve been writing about gays every day for a year, time to spend a little time writing about another group I hate: American Indians!”

International legal scholars have always recognized that sovereign control of land is legitimately transferred in at least three ways: settlement, purchase, and conquest. Europeans have to this day a legitimate claim on American soil for all three of those reasons.

Which is why Bryan supports immediately selling the Louisiana Purchase back to France!

They established permanent settlements on the land, moving gradually from east to west, while Indian tribes remained relentlessly nomadic.

The Trail of Tears never would have happened if those damn Injuns had just stayed still!

But another factor has rarely been discussed, and that is the moral factor.

In the ancient tradition of the Hebrews, God made it clear to Abraham that the land of Canaan was promised to his descendants. But he told Abraham the transfer of land to his heirs could not happen for 400 years, for one simple reason: “[T]he iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete” (Gen. 15:16).

The Amorites, or Canaanite peoples, practiced one moral abomination after another, whether it was incest, adultery, sexual immorality, homosexuality, bestiality or child sacrifice, and God finally said “Enough!”

And the ancient tradition of the Hebrews is of ultimate relevance to modern day Alabammy, which was promised to white people in Europe via a text message from God. You can look it up.

The native American tribes at the time of the European settlement and founding of the United States were, virtually without exception, steeped in the basest forms of superstition, had been guilty of savagery in warfare for hundreds of years, and practiced the most debased forms of sexuality.

Bryan Fischer’s fundamentalist Christian superstition, of course, is better than the Native Americans’ superstition, and his ancestors’ warfare and genocide was The Good Kind, you see, because it reinforced Bryan’s prejudices.

The native American tribes ultimately resisted the appeal of Christian Europeans to leave behind their superstition and occult practices for the light of Christianity and civilization. They in the end resisted every attempt to “Christianize the Savages of the Wilderness,” to use George Washington’s phrase.

They rejected Washington’s direct counsel to the Delaware chiefs in 1779, “You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ.”

And when white people tell you there’s a better way, you damn well better listen!

Is this to say the same holds true for native American tribes today? In many respects, the answer is of course no. But in some senses, the answer is yes. Many of the tribal reservations today remain mired in poverty and alcoholism because many native Americans continue to cling to the darkness of indigenous superstition instead of coming into the light of Christianity and assimilating into Christian culture.

The continued presence of native American superstition was on full display at the memorial service for the victims of the Tucson shooter, when the “invocation” (such as it was) was offered by a native American who sought inspiration from the “Seven Directions,” including “Father Sky” and “Mother Earth,” rather than the God of the Bible.

Many of the fundamentalist churches today remain mired in self-righteous stupidity and a frayed tether to reality because many fundamentalist Christians continue to cling to the darkness of indigenous [to the Middle East] superstition instead of coming into the light of rational thinking and assimilating into modern culture. The continued presence of fundamentalist Christian superstition is on full display every time I open up my Google Reader and am regaled with tales of fundamentalist Christian belief being used to hurt and prey upon women, children, gay people, racial minorities, all under the guise of “family values.”

Sadly, this column will likely generate a firestorm of nuclear proportions among wingers on the left rather than the thoughtful reflection the thesis deserves.

If a bunch of intelligent people collectively saying “Gah, what a moron, and seemingly quite a racist too,” constitutes a “firestorm of nuclear proportions,” well then okay.

Even worse, the reaction will likely obscure the sobering lesson for today. America in 2011 is as guilty of “abominations” as the native American tribes we replaced. We have the blood of 53 million babies on our hands through abortion. We have normalized sexual immorality, adultery, and homosexuality, all horrors in the eyes of God, and are witnessing a surge in incest, pedophilia and even bestiality in our midst.

Is there a surge of incest, pedophilia and bestiality in Bryan Fischer’s midst? I’d like to stay away from his midst, then, thanks.

Thomas Jefferson wrote at the time of the Founding, “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.” It is long past time for us once again to tremble for our country.

And then Thomas Jefferson had a cupcake and flipped through his Jefferson Bible, which, if you remember, was a special version he created with all the supernatural aspects removed, leaving only the teachings of Jesus. Bryan Fischer would do well to read it.

The American Family Association has obviously at this point decided to embrace and move toward their status as a hate group.  I suppose they had no other choice.
