AFA's Bryan Fischer Says Poppers Cause AIDS and 96 Percent of Gays Who Have Sex Use Them: VIDEO


American Family Association radio host Bryan Fischer tells his listeners that AIDS is caused by promiscuity and poppers and 96 percent of gays who have sex use them, Right Wing Watch reports.

Adds Fisher: "God's design is one sexual partner for life. Now, in the homosexual community, the average homosexual has hundreds of sexual partners over the course of a lifetime. Hundreds. Some of them have between 500 and 1000 and there are any number of homosexuals, and they admit this in their own literature, have more then a 1000 sexual partners."

  1. Blah blah blah.
    The only thing I'd like to know is, where does he get his information.

  3. Channelling another dangerous wacko, Peter Duesberg:

    "In his 1996 book Inventing the AIDS Virus and in numerous journal articles and letters to the editor, Duesberg asserts that HIV is harmless and that recreational and pharmaceutical drug use, especially of zidovudine (AZT, a drug used in the treatment of AIDS) are the causes of AIDS outside Africa (the so-called Duesberg hypothesis). He considers AIDS diseases as markers for drug use, e.g. use of poppers (alkyl nitrites) among some homosexuals, asserting a correlation between AIDS and recreational drug use.[29]"

  4. Mr. Fischer,

    Let me clarify for you. HIV is caused by unprotected anal & vaginal sex as well as sharing needles. AIDS is a result of untreated HIV running rampant in the body.

    Not only gays contract HIV, straight men & women get it as well.

    When you know better, you do better.
    Please try harder to be informed.

  5. I've never used poppers and I've had exactly four sexual partners in my life.

  6. It's Acid Flashback time boys and girls!

    WAY back at the beginning of the epidemic, before we even knew it was sexually transmitted, rumors ran rampant that poppers were the cause. Not at all the case, as we quickly learned.

    I keep waiting for Fischer to be found in a hot bed motel ODd on drugs with a teenage hustler beside him.

  7. Hahaha, what's funny to me about this is that everyone's favorite troll JasonRick frequently claims that AIDS is caused by poppers and promiscuity.

    OMG! JasonRick is Bryan Fischer!

  8. If there is one realization here it is that nutcases like Fischer are their own worst enemies. You can spew hate and lies for just so long before before being revealed for the lying piece of scum you are. A round of applause goes out to the gutter snakes like Bryan Fischer. The truth of the internet is killing the fanatical evangical off quicker then anything else.

  9. "God's design is one sexual partner for life."

    Are you listening Newt Gingrich?

  10. I stopped using them because they give me headaches. If only I had known that I'm also now preventing HIV!

  11. 96-percent? Where did they ask this question, at the Popper factory that only employs gay sex fanatics? Seriously, this moron is just pulling figures out of his demented ass.

    The only way you could possibly know that is to poll every gay person in America. I'm pretty sure that didn't happen.

  12. This asshat is about 20 years behind in his conspiracy theories....... good gawd, man - catch up!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Is it just me or does it seem to anyone else that this creep is just aching for it? I mean, it seems like it's all he can think about -- hundreds and hundreds of partners. He just can't stop imagining it, picturing it in his mind, over and over again...

  14. These people watch too much porn.

  15. I've never used Poppers but maybe I'm missing out on something. If 96% use them they must be great!

  16. I'm not sure why you guys keep posting this wacko.

    Posted by: chad | Jan 20, 2012 11:44:05 AM

  17. Yeah, right. And 20 years ago Wilt Chamberlain claimed to have had sex with 20,000 different women. Which, according to Wilt's own calculations, equalled having sex with 1.2 women per day every day since he turned 15. I believe he was in his early 40's when he made that claim.

    A lot of gays guys claim to have had sex with 1,000 different guys. In their dreams!

  18. I enjoy our literature, it's so informative.

    Posted by: doug | Jan 20, 2012 11:47:00 AM

  19. I'm not into poppers, and most people I know r not into...

    have been, saferly (yes, making that word up), with a bit more than one hundred people (in a span of 20 years, about 5 or 6 per year on average), and I'd easily say that less than ten did poppers or wanted to do poppers with me around...

    and yes, I am HIV negative.... so yes, Mr, so what? some of us have lots of sex... get over it..... that is one small part of whom we r....

    we also teach, protect the country, compete in the olympics, serve food in restaurants, run for public office, style people, mow lawns, pay taxes, etc....

    I guess u must see it as a trade off, if one wants to have tons of sex, one gets less social benefits..... I'd rather u have more sex (whatever rocks ur boats) and let us benefit just as everyone else....

  20. "God's design is one sexual partner for life."

    IOW, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka.

  21. I really have no idea how someone like this think that they can speak to God's design (unless they have a god-complex themselves). Seriously, has he ever read the bible? God instructed many of the figures in the bible to take multiple wives. The assertion that God intended one sexual partner for life is blatantly false. If he fabricates the most basic foundations of his faith, then how can he expect anyone to believe anything that comes out of his mouth?

  22. If these folks can just pull nonsense out of their butts to keep us down, what's to stop us from doing the same?

    Bryan Fisher requires all his listeners to keep live gerbils in their anuses! Pass the word!

  23. His statistics are accurate, you know. AND WE ALL KNOW THAT THEY ARE.

    So trying to lie and pretend that most gay men will not have more than 100 sex partners over a lifetime is just silly.....and having more than 500 is not uncommon at all, either.

    The effective approach to the issue should be to ask why promiscuity is so widespread and whether it is even a bad thing. Undoubtedly, in part it is due to men being hard-wired by nature to seek out multiple sex partners and this is just as true of straight men as it is of gay men. And there is no doubt that straight men would be just as promiscuous as gay men are, if women would let them get away with it.

    The problem with promiscuity is that it can negatively effect the ability to form committed the goal should be to alter the male culture in such a way that an allowance is made for having sexual partners outside a relationship, as long as the number does not become excessive....and this is, indeed, the solution that many societies have arrived at.

    But the excessive promiscuity we see among gay men reflects a fundamental inability to form lasting relationships.....and knowing that is what makes so many of you defensive about the issue. And it IS relevant to the question of marriage rights, because getting married and raising children should at least be tied to some sort of permanent commitment--which is essential to the well-being of the children involved.

    And that fundamental inability to form lasting relationships is, in turn, due to all the factors I have alluded to previously--lack of a truly male identity, due in part to internalized homophobia....and a tendency to tie onesself emotionally to women rather than men, objectifying the latter, including each other.

    THOSE are the issues that really need to be addressed and we will never defeat the homophobes until we have cleaned up our own still rather dirty house.

  24. Peter Duesberg is actually correct. HIV does not cause AIDS. It is caused by appalling lifestyle choices such as the promiscuity you see on the gay male scene. Don't deny that there is a culture of promiscuity that is marketed to gay men in all the venues.

    A lot of you wince and whine at what Bryan Fischer is saying - perhaps with some justification - but you can't deny that elements of what he is saying are true. Bigotry aside, he has a point.

    How many of you have actually tried to give up promiscuity? The sound of crickets.....

  25. So AFA will come out against Newt because of his affairs and three wives, and Romney because one of his religion's basic tenets is polygamy?
