American Family Radio host Bryan Fischer is having a bad day. Just the worst. Not as bad as 9/11 but --

He's just being hyperbolic, he doesn't really mean to say that --

Or maybe he does. Of course, Twitter being Twitter, the responses to Fischer's comparison were intellectually rigorous and dignified:

Maybe a different analogy would yield a better response?

Nope:

Well -- maybe?

Nope -- Twitter was determined to attack him with all decorum his comments deserved:

[embedtweet id="614457488771936256"]

[embedtweet id="614462172865921024"]

And that was before the Satanic dancing had even begun:

We can only assume he saw something like this:

But it was probably more along the lines of this:

He did receive kind offers aplenty though:

We sincerely doubt he appreciated them very much, though.
