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. It always amuses me when someone spouts out statistics about my sex life because they're always wrong.

  2. I have been around the gay male scene for 25 years almost. I have been to saunas and any sex club you can imagine. I have been to clubs and bars. I know what I'm talking about. Within the gay male scene there is a culture of sleaze. The whole scene is based on a sex act. It's a giant dating club.

    Bryan Fischer's correct point is that amyl contributes to the destruction of the immune system. He's absolutely correct. I think the broader point should be that being gay does not cause AIDS but being promiscuous and using drugs does weaken the immune system.

    A lot of you don't want to admit it because your entire social lives are based on promiscuity and drug use.

  4. Jason,

    You're an idiot. I've been in a 15-year monogamous relationship and neither one of us do poppers.

    What you're experiencing is what the psychological community calls "projection".
    Or, perhaps you're just an uneducated, pathetically immature moron.

  5. Paul,

    Congratulations. I congratulate anyone who is in a monogamous relationship.

    I am very specific in what I'm talking about - ie promiscuity and drug use. These are the cause of AIDS. Yet, many gay men don't wish to give them up.

    The truly sad fact is that there are some gay men who enjoy being sick and who also enjoy the attention that comes from being sick. There is a pride movement associated with having an illness.

  8. What people like Bryan Fisher say about gays, is like saying all strait people act like college kids on spring break their whole lives. Most gay people I know are in long term stable relationships. A virus causes HIV aids. Being unsafe once, or sharing a needle once or getting tainted blood once can give you the virus. What it comes down to for us is to live our lives in a sane non self destructive way. To be safe or find someone to pair couple bond with.... That society makes it harder for us to have stable relationships is changing. But our relationships will never be perfect enough for people like Bryan Fisher. I personally have never liked sex without some kind of emotional bond, I judge no one. I just want people to have the self esteem to be safe and treat each other with respect.

  9. 10k partners or bust!

  10. Some people will say absolutely anything to get attention. This includes spreading misinformation about scientific facts. It also includes claiming to have lived a really sleazy life in order to somehow claim that other people shouldn't be sleazy. In the first case, it's dangerous. In the second case, it's just pathetic.

    It's an indisputable fact that the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is the causal agent behind the syndrome known as AIDS. It is spread through unprotected anal and vaginal sex with an infected partner. It is also spread through sharing needles with an infected person. Infected mothers can (and unfortunately often do) spread HIV to their infants.

    It's also indisputable that you can be as sleazy as you want with uninfected partners and YOU WILL NOT develop AIDS because you will not be infected with HIV. You can also do all kinds of sleazy things that do not include anal or vaginal sex and/or injectable drugs and YOU WILL NOT develop AIDS because you will not become infected with HIV. For example, you can give an HJ to every guy that walks by. Sleazy, perhaps, but it will not infect you with HIV. You should, however, probably keep some hand lotion handy to avoid chafing.

    But then again, most people already know all of this and some people just pretend not to know all of this so that they can post absurdities on the internet and get attention.

  11. RICK, post the URL to your own page or video where you show us all what a strong, upstanding, empowered and healthy masculine gay role model you apparently are.

    the gay men who have trouble forming relationships are gay men like YOU - self-loathing resentful homosexuals who are too cowardly and ashamed to be seen as "gay"

    the gay men you and your father hate most, the "obviously gay" ones don't have that problem. they have relatioships. long lasting ones. ones that exist in the public light. because unlike you they're not afraid of people knowing they're gay.

    what rampant promiscuity? you're not getting laid, and you clearly don't hang out in circles where other guys are getting laid either.

    we get it - you still get your information on The Gays from what your bigoted daddy tells you. aint he dead yet?

  12. I know I'm out of line for saying this but when is someone going to pick off this guy with a long range rifle?

  13. Since we are making up statistics, apparently heterosexuals have an average of 2 sexual partners... but that is only because many remarry after their spouse dies. It would actually be an average of 1.5, but people like Newt Gingrich and Rush Limbaugh throw off the average. Oh, and soldiers in the military, straight or gay, have an average of 50,000 partners in their lifetime... but they don't use poppers cause of drug tests.

  14. @RyaninSacto You are trying to change the subject. The AFA has as its goal to deny people of the same gender the right to marry each other. The technical question of how HIV is transmitted is really irrelevant to that issue. What IS relevant is whether or not the group that is lobbying for the right to marry is really sincere about the kind of long-term commitment that marriage represents. And if only a very small percentage of that group form lasting relationships, then what is the case to be made for giving them marriage rights?

    I personally do not understand why any gay man would want to try and mimic the kind of absolute heterosexual monogamy that marriage is the symbol of. To me, that absolute monogamy is a female-driven value that evolution has installed in women to ensure adequate resources for the raising of children. It is therefore irrelevant to a relationship between two men--unless they choose to have children together, but even then, an allowance can be made for having sex partners outside the principal relationship.....and I think it should be, lest the pressures of unnatural adherence to absolute monogamy drive both partners to unhappines.....

    I think the solution is to find a happy medium....and that solution--for both gay men and straight men--is, ironically, what Newt Gingrich is taking so much flak for having suggested to his second wife....namely, an "open marriage" where there is a commitment to one's spouse (and one's family if there is one) but where outside sexual activity is allowed, without which most men will go crazy.

    But the core question of why so many gay men are EXCESSIVELY promiscuous--which is a direct consequence of their inability to form any kind of emotional bond with another male (as opposed to a natural promiscuity that is driven by biology)--is still paramount......and the answer to that question is for most gay men not a pretty one, I am afraid.....

  15. JASON/RICK - still an idiot, in so many sad, ignorant, and still somewhat amusing ways.

    Posted by: TJ | Jan 20, 2012 1:32:31 PM

  16. URL please, RICK, where you show us all how to be upstanding masculine Out empowered gay males like yourself.

    truly. URL, please. Prove it.

    what's funny about this whole thing is...uh... who goes to an unrepentant bigot for their info on gay people? LOL!

    file this under "The Klan's Stats on Blacks" and "The Aryan Brotherhood's Shocking Expose on What Jews Like"


    but RICK, time to stop being such a wimp;
    URL, please. Show us all your shining example. :D

  17. I hate people who want to tell other people how to live their lives. Diseases aside, what is wrong with promiscuity? It's in our nature. If people want to live in a monogamous relationship, no one will stop them.

    I also loathe the hypocrisy with regards to drug use. The need to get high or alter our state of mind is in our nature, too. Government may sanction the use of alcohol and tobacco (which are much more harmful than some scheduled drugs) but it doesn't give some people here the right to condemn people for their use of other drugs.

  18. Oh Jason/Rick. Your claptrap is SO 1990's, it's PATHETIC. Go post on OneNewsNow since that's where you like to get your news you f*cking quisling trolls. Really. If you want to know "why" gay men might MIGHT be more promiscuous, how about you read ANY study that shows that MARGINALIZING a population causes all sorts of negative behaviors. Not to say that being promiscuous is negative for everyone. First of all, what's promiscuous? If I have sex with more than 2 or 3 people in my entire life? Or is it getting gang-banged on film? And what about the fact that we're talking about men, here. Men are encouraged in our culture to be overtly SEXUAL. And, they're encouraged to have MANY CONQUESTS. How about, instead of you being such an incredibly HUGE D0U(HEBAG that you get some education if you're going to CLAIM that you're part of the LGBT community? YEAH. That's what I thought, you're just a f*cking troll.

  19. @Rick:

    Your fantastical experience of the gay community is very different from mine.

    And furthermore your negative appreciation of being gay, evidenced in your posts, is tragic.
    Many, even the vast majority of us, have regular friendships and relationships and everyday social interactions.
    You and Jason paint an absurd picture of promiscuity and try to label the whole community with it.
    You should get out more and get to know us in our professions, our activism, our long term relationships,our families, then you might appreciate the wonderful community that we all make up.

  20. Wait.


    We have "literature"?

    I never got mine! I want my Welcome Pack and coupons and the map of gays everywhere.

    Who's responsible for distribution? Is it available online?

  21. "God's design is one sexual partner for life."(Newt, et al. are in big trouble.) Where does Brian Fischer get this asinine stuff? Is anybody listening to him other than the Republican operatives posting here?

  23. Can we sue these assholes for slander? I'm getting sick of the lies being said about me.

    Posted by: Thompr | Jan 20, 2012 4:19:52 PM

  24. Something tells me that I've had a heck of a lot fewer sexual partners than Rick and a tiny fraction of the number of partners Jason has had.

    And they're lecturing everyone about promiscuity. Weird.

    Also weird... since when do poppers allow for multiple sexual encounters in one night?

    Posted by: BobN | Jan 20, 2012 4:58:48 PM

  25. Guess even in the gay community I'm still a minority, 27 and a virgin, lawl.
