On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer took a call from a listener who had a rather unique suggestion of what to do with people who illegally cross into America repeatedly: place them on military transport planes and then dump them out in the middle of nowhere.

“Mike from Virginia” told Fischer that repeat offenders “should be loaded on to C130s and para-dropped into Tierra del Fuego, and Nigeria, and North Vietnam” and Fischer thought that was a pretty good idea, though he did not necessarily support going to such extreme measures.

“What I would be in favor of,” Fischer said, “is when we deport them, let’s deport them as far away from the American border as we can. Return them to their home country, but as far away from the American border as is possible. If you take them across the border and deport them, they’re just going to be right back. They may be right back on the same day, so there has to be some distance that you create and then people begin to understand, look, I’m going to have a find a way to migrate clear across the country to get back to my home, let alone make another stab at reentering the United States”:

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.shutterstock_296153609
