Wilkinson takes apart pastor Bryan Fischer’s arguments-

Todd Wilkinson: Idaho Pastor Calls For ‘Open Season’ on Yellowstone Grizzlies. Huffington Post.

Of course, rational argument hardly ever changes anyone’s religious beliefs. I think this is another confirmation that pushy religious extremists are getting involved in wildlife issues as part of their larger effort to dominate us.  We are having to refight battles that should have been permanently won a hundred years ago.

I didn’t know this guy, Fischer, was actually chaplain of the Idaho State Senate. How creepy! He has now moved to Los Angeles.

    Kookookachoo I am the Walrus, I am the Egg Man!

    Pastor Nutjob indeed.

  2. Chris Harbin says:

    I think the “Creation Museum” in Northern Kentucky has a position for this guy. Actually, he might be a better exhibit than employee.

  3. ProWolf in WY says:

    The first quote in the article is enough not to take this guy seriously. He needs to go back to 1692 Salem.

    Fischer used to post rants about wolves and other godless beasts on his web site (Idaho Values Alliance) when he was based in Boise and running that organization. So his recent essay is nothing new coming from him. I’m sure you could dig up those old blog posts on that organization’s web site. I think he is actually based somewhere in the southeast – at least that’s where he went when he left Boise to host a nationally syndicated conservative radio show…

    Okay, so does anyone not get it about Idaho politics after reading this?

  6. Linda Hunter says:

    I am in the process of reading Jon Krakauer’s book “Under the Banner of Heaven” . . I can only stand to read a few pages at a time. Yikes. I had no idea.

      Fascinating read…makes Jospeph Smith sound like a more dishonest and kniving PT Barnum.

  7. william huard says:

    We are trying to isolate his defective genes.

  8. Bob Of Wyoming says:

    This bear business is nuffin’! Wanna ee what a real nut this guy is – listen to this:

  9. timz says:

    Scary thing is people like this don’t exist without a following.

    Imagine there’s no heaven
    It’s easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today…

    Imagine there’s no countries
    It isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace…

    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world…

    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will live as one

    So Imagine, what it would be like if there were no other human beings like Fischer in the world………..quoting the bible and automatically expecting the “faithful” to adhear to their doctrines…….imagine.

    Maybe this “preacher” should start killing the talking snakes–the source of all sin–in the garden of eden!

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
