Imprison Gays Says American Family Association Radio Host Bryan Fischer

Imprison Gays Says American Family Association Radio Host Bryan Fischer

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.

I have a hard time believing that people like this Bryan Fischer get airtime and are effectively paid to spew their ignorance. How can one man presume to judge another based on his/her sexual preference is beyond me. And actually it isn't a matter of preference for most. We don't choose whom we are attracted to or the person we love. Nor do we choose their gender. I highly doubt anyone, as a child, says, "Oh I want to be gay when I grow up." This guy should be put in a freak circus.

Sorry Lindsey...I know it hurts!

Take a deep breath now---ready?

There weren't any giants and people didn't live 900 years, either! Noah didn't collect two of everything from around the planet, save them during a world-wide inundation and then carefully sail to Australia to redeposit the little wombats, numbats and 'roos onto the island. I guess the Komodo dragons must've been somehow tranquilized so they didn't kill him and the Taipan vipers must've been sleeping, too.

(Are you ok? Good! Brave girl!) Let's go on. Since nobody in Israel had ever SEEN a monkey with a prehensile tail, Noah must've been very tempted to keep them....but....good fellow that he was...he sailed all the way to (what's now called) the Americas and put them BACK!

Funny--he didn't leave any words about all that wonderful space to the west.....

In all seriousness, I once asked a Witness friend to explain to me, since she doesn't believe in evolution and does believe in a literal bible, how all these things happened. She thought for a moment and then said---"Well, you know, pam, continents were a LOT closer together then."

RIIIIIIIIGHT. Pangea in the time of man!

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. Since we're all created in the image of the Abrahamic deity, I guess homosexuality HAS to be "chosen," or else Yaweh would be part "homofagqueer" too!

You mean humans DIDN'T rope 'n ride T-Rex, Pam?

Wow. You just shattered one of my most cherished beliefs. Sniff.....

No, Timm, these are NOT impartial sources of scientific data. Look at them...they're about as scientifically respected as creationist "science" and the fringies who believe Obama was born in Kenya!

Show me something approved by the US Government. Show me figures from qualified medical research...say the USDH.

Meanwhile, you can quote all your religious-right fantasies you wish...anyone with scientific background LAUGHS at those sites.

What's next? Humans riding dinosaurs? A 6,000-year-old earth?

"Timm...you posted a link to an article on an anti-homosexual "lifestyle" site. Those figures mean nothing. That is an editorial. Provide me with PROOF of those statements....documented findings, sources, published studies, etc.

Otherwise, that's just an ESSAY. It has no more validity than saying there once was a world-wide flood which killed every human on the planet and I can PROVE it because it says so in my religious text.

No proof--no credibility."

Pam is it possible for you Libs to be honest just once? There is plenty of proof provided by these web sites if you will just read it. You cannot honest just sweep this under the rug and shout la la l al la la make it go away. The proof is there...get honest!

"Timm...anyone who uses the term "queer lifestyle" is obviously biased and ignorant of the facts. Homosexuality is as natural as heterosexuality in that it's NOT a "lifestyle," it's a sexual orientation."

Pam, queer is a real word and it is found in the dictionary, the word gay on the other had was hijacked by homosexuals. The word gay basically means happy. People used to be able to say I feel gay meaning happy but now we can no longer do that.

Did you not look at the statics I provided you about the homosexual life and the consequences? You cannot just pretend and sweep that under the rug.

Timm...anyone who uses the term "queer lifestyle" is obviously biased and ignorant of the facts. Homosexuality is as natural as heterosexuality in that it's NOT a "lifestyle," it's a sexual orientation.

Homosexuals (just like heterosexuals) are individuals, and, as such...they live as "safely" or with as much risk as anyone else.

Please stop the religious-based blame game.

"Your "two cents" don't add up! In the first place, countless people received the AIDS vaccine through something as innocent as a blood transfusion. But because the disease is ONLY considered in context with homosexuality (as you seem to consider it) people want their identity kept secret.

And I don't blame them! Whose business is it, anyway? If someone is determined to have the virus, public health laws mandate disclosing that to everyone with whom they've had sex.

What more do you want?"

Pam read this web site for starters and you tell me normal and safe the queer lifestyle is? It looks pretty bleak to me.
