AFA's Bryan Fischer Calls Homosexuality a 'Deathstyle', Says Blood Ban Proves Contact with Gays is Dangerous: VIDEO


Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association (last year classified an official 'hate group' by the SPLC) discussed CPAC's rejection of gay conservative group GOProud on his radio show, and their participation last year, which caused several other groups (many of which were also, like the Family Research Council, classified hate groups) to boycott the conservative confab.


Says Fischer:

"Homosexuality is not a conservative value." GOProud - their agenda is to put open homosexuals in the military and promote gay marriage. So they are as relentless and as far left as you can get on the issues of human sexuality. And we said look if CPAC is going to treat that as a conservative position we're not going to be a part of this thing."

Fischer then goes on to cite the government's ban on blood donation from gays as the reason conservatives, or anyone for that matter, should not even have contact with homosexuals:

"I think this is one of the reasons where our argument is the danger that homosexual contact imposes to human health. I gave blood here several weeks ago and I was asked three times...have you as a male ever had sex with another male one time since 1977. If I had answered yes, I would not have been able to give blood.  The risk to the nation's blood supply is so severe that the risk that active homosexuals pose to the nation's health, to the nation's blood supply is so severe that if a man has had sex even one solitary time since 1977 - cannot donate blood. That, ladies and gentleman, tells you all you need to know."

Fischer then goes on to cite the recent HIV study from the CDC and uses it to stoke racial homophobia of blacks against gays:

"If you care about minorities, then it's especially urgent that we stop legitimizing this lifestyle...If you have any compassion for the African-American community at all then you want this alarm to be sounded throughout the black community. It's not a lifestyle. It's a death-style."


Yet mainstream news organizations continue to pander to these hate groups.

The New York Times' Erick Eckholm yesterday wrote an article on the AFA and its upcoming prayer rally this weekend, 'The Response'. Eckholm was slammed yesterday by GLAAD for adopting the AFA's hate language in characterizing some of its arguments. They write:

Not once does Eckholm indicate that perhaps non-liberals might also disagree with the assertion that LGBT people want to put Christians in “re-education camps” or that “the number one class of people who are committing hate crimes today are homosexual activists” (both claims made by Fischer). Nor does he mention that the “liberal critics” who designated AFA as a hate group are actually the widely respected Southern Poverty Law Center.

  1. "Homosexuality is not a conservative value, and I'll explain and illustrate that here, in just a moment". Yeah I bet you will. I stopped watching the clip. I've seen him do that before.

  3. The Blood Bank's blanket ban on gay and bisexual men giving blood is outrageous and gives ammunition to people like Bryan Fischer. Why hasn't the GLBT community protested against the Blood Bank? More interested in partying, probably.

  4. What I find totally and thoroughly disgusting is not Fischer's usual old white male homophobic ranting (that's old news) but the pandering given to Fischer's organization and other SPLC-designated gay hate groups by, of all publications, "The New York Times" (and other MSM)! Whatever happened to the idea of being "fair-and-balanced" in one's news reporting? Oh, that's right, I mean, correct, being even-handed is what is practiced today by Rupert Murdoch/Roger Ailes and staff at Faux Noise channel. Anyway, kudos to GLAAD for taking the NYT to task over this nonsense approach to reporting on the AFA. GLAAD (and other gay organizations) need to keep pressuring MSM honchos and editors to show these hate groups in their true light and not kowtow to their PR which makes them look like the victims in our ongoing struggle for our civil rights.

  5. I think of myself as a liberal, but in the sense that the word connotes liberal democracy. The right (not necessarily all conservatives) are interested in just themselves.

  7. The incidence of HIV among gay men is only slightly higher than that of straight men, so this ban is nothing more than discrimination. ALL blood is screened for HIV and other disease and TONS of it is thrown out because of straight people donating that are HIV and either know it (and donate anyway) or don't know it.

    The ban is silly and only serves to fuel these idiots hate-filled rhetoric.

  8. so grandpa outoftouch that must mean all the hundreds of thousands of africans that have been ravaged by HIV were all gay?

  9. One more reason to get rid of the outdated ban on donating blood.

  10. Shouldn't scabs like him be picked off and flicked away? Seriously, when can we start getting rid of these fuckers?

  11. Hopefully one of these religious freaks doesn't bomb their own prayer rally to attract more media attention but it wouldn't surprise me since they are always so desperate to play the victim card. Please take your followers sky gawd and especially old angry closeted racists like Ms. Fischer.

  12. The blood bank should have him arrested for making a false statement, unless he thinks he's partying like it's 1976!

  13. Wait a second, that confused me at the end. So, the gay community, 2% of America is responsible for 61% of all HIV infections in America? How does that even make sense?

  14. Sorry Bryan...the only "deathsyle" out there is living a lie in that miserable closet which you occupy...

  15. bryan fischer is certifiably crazy. why is he no confined? he is a danger to himself and others.

  16. He promotes science and biology and somehow I'm certain he's a creationist.

  17. Bryan hates us. Water is wet. Meh.

  18. Okay, Bryan. Okay. We realize you don't want anyone to suspect that you're gay. We get it. It's pathetic, but we get it. Now, please take your seat so that educated folk may discuss important matters.

  19. If you are certain that you are HIV-negative, your civic duty to donate blood far outweighs the DHHS’ hysterical and outdated policies. Obviously anyone, whether Gay or Straight, should not donate blood if they’ve fun a risk of HIV exposure in the past six months or so, but if two Gay men who have repeatedly tested HIV-negative are in a monogamous relationship, there is absolutely NO reason why they shouldn’t donate blood, no matter HOW sexually active they are. The Red Cross isn’t using polygraphs to ensure adherence to this policy. If you KNOW that you are HIV-negative, just say you’re heterosexual and donate blood, because you’ll know you are doing the right thing.

    The rate of HIV infection among African Americans is disproportionately high. Can you imagine what sort of outcry there would be if DHHS banned Black Americans from donating blood?

    The current policy prohibiting Gay men from donating blood was put into place back in 1983, just a few years after the beginning of the AIDS epidemic in the United States. In fact, the HIV antibody test didn’t even become available until 1985. Needless to say, we know a tremendous amount more about AIDS and HIV testing than we did back then.

    It is entirely possible for sexually active people, whether Gay or Straight, to protect themselves from HIV infection. One becomes infected with HIV only by becoming inoculated with either the blood or the sexual fluids from someone who is infected. Preventing this is very easy to do. And if two Gay men who have repeatedly tested HIV-negative get into a monogamous relationship, AIDS is not going to arbitrarily STRIKE them like a lightning bolt hurled by an angry and vindictive God.
