As we noted yesterday, the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer was years ahead of Donald Trump in calling for a ban on Muslim immigration to America, so he naturally took a bit of a victory lap on his radio program today in light of the fact that his radical position is now being championed by the Republican presidential frontrunner.

But Fischer took his position a step further, insisting that it is not enough to simply ban Muslims from entering the country and so the government should actually be paying Muslims who are already here to leave.

“Let’s use American resources to help these people find a home in the Muslim world,” Fischer said. “I suggest that we assist Muslims in America with repatriation costs. Let’s help them find a home in the Muslim world. They can live in a place that shares the values, that shares their religious principles, that shares their religious practice, that shares their cultural customs. They can be at home, don’t have to chafe against our religious liberty, don’t have to chafe against our Judeo-Christian values system. They can be at home and I believe we ought to be content to use our resources to help them get there.”

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
