This one is way worse- "When God Withdraws", written by Bryan Fischer of American Family Association. He's the same "genius" who was in the news recently, saying it saddens God if we don't use all the oil he put there for us.

Yes, that line alone reveals the man's agenda.  His stance is a non-sequitur!  There just is NO correlation between fear of God or gods and fear of state-delivered justice.  For example, I have no fear of God whatsoever, but I certainly would not want to spend time as an inmate in prison, or be executed!

He lost me at the first line:

"If an individual is not afraid of the wrath of God, it is
impossible to cause him to fear the justice of the state."

I have none of the former, and a healthy amount of the
latter.
