Christian radio host: Satan is using UFOs to distract us from Jesus

Homophobic right-wing Christian Bryan Fischer has in the past incorrectly asserted that Christianity is the only religion protected by the First Amendment. He’s claimed former President Barack Obama is the antichrist. He’s asserted that the LGBTQ flag should be banned right alongside the Confederate flag and that women shouldn’t be allowed to hold political positions of power.

But lately, he’s worried that Satan is using UFOs and aliens to hide from what’s really important — the coming End Times.

Fischer, who hosts a radio program for The American Family Association, had this to say on his show today:

“The UFO’s, ladies and gentlemen, I believe, are manifestations of Satan, the deceiver of the brother. He wants us to get all distracted with stuff like unidentified flying objects, with stuff like aliens from outer space because it will take us away from thinking about the kingdom, thinking about the word of God, loving the people around us because it is all part of a ruse by Satan to distract us.”

Fischer noted that the Bible describes “signs in the heavens” that may symbolize things yet to come.

“Remember that — Acts Chapter two? And I wonder if maybe these UFOs are part of that? And all those asteroids that they’re sighting, get people preoccupied and distracted but there are signs in the heavens — whether they are fake or not, signs in the heavens that may be a harbinger that we are approaching the End Times.”
