A Religious Righter, Bryan Fischer, has declared that the First Amendment was written only to protect Christians.
Ignore him and move along, right? Well, not so fast. He and his group, the out-there American Family Association, are influential with the staunch conservative evangelicals who dominate the Iowa Republican caucuses. With a big religio-political revival coming in Iowa, People for the American Way is calling on Republican candidates who often appear on his radio show, such as tax fugitive Mike Huckabee, to call him down.
Could be interesting to see the slippery Huckster parse this one if forced to confront it. Huckabee stuck his foot in it on a Fischer show previously going on about Mau Maus and British colonialism in Africa in seeming to agree with Fischer’s assesment of President Obama as un-American. It would be a good time for one of those occasional bursts of Huckabee moderation.

In addition to Muslims, by the way, Fischer doesn’t like bears. Yes, bears.
