Joe Jervis of Joe.My.God. writes about American Family Association radio host Bryan Fischer, who advocates putting “active homosexuals” through “an effective reparative therapy program” as we do with intravenous drug users because they are effectively committing the same crime, increasing the spread of HIV/AIDS.
Let’s be clear, Fischer is not advocating that ANY person, be they heterosexual or homosexual, who contracts HIV/AIDS through sexual contact, be forced into “reparative therapy.” Fischer reserves his judgment for gays only, making it clear where his prejudice lies. “Active homosexuals” are committing a crime by choosing to love or have sex with someone of the same gender.
Nothing says family values and the “redemptive love of Jesus Christ,” as Joe Jervis puts it, like throwing people in prison because you don’t approve of the gender of their sex partners.
If there’s any justice in the after life Fischer believes in, Fischer will have to explain to his beloved christ why he spent so much time telling others to fear and to hate some of god’s children.
