Over half of the people living in Los Angeles are bilingual, and this is apparently shocking news to evangelical Christian and all-around lunatic radio host Bryan Fischer.
Fischer was so alarmed by this statistic, he felt compelled to blurt out the first ridiculous thing to come to his reptilian brain, saying that the prevalence of more and more people in this country speaking a different language is a sign of God’s judgment on America.
From Right Wing Watch:
Seemingly unaware that the bilingual individuals profiled in the very article that he cited speak English in addition to another language, Fischer linked the rise of multilingualism in America to the story of the Tower of Babel in the book of Genesis in which God “confused the people with different languages” as punishment for their arrogance, saying that the same thing is now happening here.
“When God’s judgment falls on a nation for turning its back on him,” Fischer said, “One form that that judgment takes is that people lose their ability to talk to each other. It’s a form and expression of God’s judgment. […] I believe God’s judgment is beginning to settle in on this land in the form of linguistic isolation.”
